461 - maybe not his best but still good - especially on SACD
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 26/01/2014 20:28:18
I've given 5 stars for a combination of the music and this rendering onto SACD. The music is good but not necessarily Clapton's best offering, albeit always listenable. And if I'm still listening to it after all these years, I guess it must have something. For me what lifts it here is the first class rendering onto SACD. I have not listened to the CD layer, nor even the 2-channel SACD, just the 5.1 SACD, so what follows refers to that only. And it sounds great! Musically well balanced, with its full dynamic range, well distributed over the surround channels, and I am now hearing subtleties which I had not previously heard on CD or on my original vinyl.
In order to buy more multi-channel SACDs, I have had to overcome my reluctance to pay what I feel is a lot more than the cost of a standard CD. But then when I remind myself what I am getting in return, sonically, it seems money well spent.
If all you want is a CD, then don't buy this, save your money and just buy a standard CD. But if you have the wherewithall to listen to the SACD layer, whether in stereo or multi-channel, then consider this for your collection..
