SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that
utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to
further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate
developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher
transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in
fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for
a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements
in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
It was a cold, raw day in traditionally windy Chicago on November 21st, 1964,
but hundreds of people found a quick way to warm up! They were the lucky ones
who crowed into the Regal Theatre where an old favourite - B.B. King - generated
his own brand of heat, via his guitar, his band, and his great blues songs.
"By the mid-sixties, King's career appeared to be winding down, as black
audiences began to turn their backs on the blues. But the British blues revival
— which saw the Rolling Stones making a pilgrimage to Chicago's Chess Studios —
introduced the blues to young, white American rock fans. Live at the Regal,
recorded in Chicago in 1964, paved the way for King's appearances on the
rock-concert circuit and FM radio. It remains his definitive live set. His
guitar sound was precise and powerful, driving emotional versions of some of his
most influential songs, including "Everyday (I Have the Blues)" and "How Blue
Can You Get?" - www.rollingstone.com
Playing a week's engagement at the Regal, B.B. fronted his band, singing and
playing his guitar in the way that has made him one of the world's great blues
singers, and this is a rare recorded "live" performance. There probably isn't a
live recording anywhere that contains more spontaneous spectator enthusiasm. B.B.
and his band perform the type of material that just naturally creates a
At this performance, he included some of his fans' old favourites - "Please Love
Me", "My Own Fault" and "How Blue Can You Get" - and their cheering reaction
indicates the spot B.B. holds in their affection.
Presented at the Regal by disc jockeys Pervis Spann and E. Rodney Jones from
Chicago's Radio Station, B.B. was in top form at this performance, and he's
probably never sounded better on record. His sensitive feeling for the blues and
his keen sense of rhythm create pure excitement.
