I had a chance to compare sonically Jimi Hendrix - Machine Gun: The Fillmore East First Show 12/31/1969 Analogue Productions SACD with 24-96 download. The SACD sounds just fantastic - smooth, dynamic with (relatively of course we're talking 1969 live recording) lots of air around the instruments. For DR fans SACD DR is 13, HDTracks 24-96 - DR10, AP SACD is even better than vinyl - DR12! Seems (once again) that a good remaster is possible. Provided it's done by AP (no, they don't pay me for that) Highly recommended for Hendrix fans! http://store.acousticsounds.com/d/117438/Jimi_Hendrix-Machine_Gun_The_Fillmore_East_First_Show_12311969-Hybrid_Stereo_SACD
The last time I purchased a CD player was in 1985. It still works swell but oh that internal dac. I broke down 2 days ago & acquired a very slightly used Marantz CD6004. (to those of you who upgrade ever time your deck gets a new release - thank you.) Time to buy a CD. I've never bought any Hendrix, but have always loved his music. "So... which Jimi Hendrix CD's should I start with?" I think to myself, as I type "amazon.com". 30 minutes later, I have yet to make a single choice because his collection is so carn-sarned over-saturated. It seems the Hendrix family long ago discovered there's a lot of money to be made in re-releasing the old recordings of their departed loved one. But these folks have taken it to a whole new level. The word "Shameless" doesn't begin to cover it. What are your favorite CD versions of his work? Gary
