Remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio
200-gram pressing by Quality Record Pressings
Positive Feedback magazine Writer’s Choice Awards for 2017!
“It’s a sonic spectacular and while perhaps you are skeptical about this, it makes for damn entertaining listening. … If your system is capable of wide dynamic swings and deep bass, you’ll definitely enjoy cranking up this record! The original, cut by Doug Sax, … is obviously no ‘slouch,’ but this Kevin Gray-mastered reissue is even better overall. The bottom remains solid and dynamic while the midrange is far more transparent, having lost a ‘milky’ quality that made it sound as if it had been recorded in an airplane hangar. … if chamber is more your style and/or more suited to your system I’d recommend Sonatas For Violin and Piano (Analogue Productions APC-8722) performed by David Abel (violin) and Julie Steinberg (piano). Incidentally, Wilson’s catalogue numbers begin with the release year, so this one was issued in 1987. These chamber music recordings were designed to create the sensation of the performers playing in your room as opposed to you being in a venue. … The QRP pressings produce pitch black backgrounds with which the originals cannot begin to compete. Plus the music is sublime and/or bombastic!” — Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com.
