The Doors series of albums on SACD have to be about the best versions out there? L.A. Woman in particular is stellar!
Musically this one is a high water mark for both artists (I've followed Bacharach for decades):
The vinyl for once was disappointing--it should have been spread across three sides (or better yet, across four sides at 45 RPM). The SACD is the better bet here. The original CD is no slouch either, provided it is played back with the HDCD decoded.
The DCC gold CD’s get high praise as well. From what I’ve read, the S/T is best on DCC due to fresher master tapes available in ‘92.
The rest are probably pretty close between DCC/Audio Fidelity gold vs SACD. Some say the SACD’s are a bit more relaxed and laid back and the gold CD’s have a bit more energy.
This is a great SACD - excellent sound.
