Numbered, Limited Edition!
Rickie Lee Jones has always been a talented songwriter with a creative knack for telling her musical tales using vivid characters and lush musical arrangements. Flying Cowboys shares much of the playful, childlike charm of her eponymous debut by exploring a wealth of themes and musical styles. This album, Jones' first in five years, maintains her reputation for excellence. The set was produced by Steely Dan's Walter Becker, and features backing from Scottish trio the Blue Nite, as well as some of the best studio musicians in the world. The album includes a stirring cover of Gerry and the Pacemakers' "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying," to go along with the hit "Satellites." The sheer musicality of the vocals and harmonies coupled with the poetic, deep lyrics leads to a truly incredible work of art.
Featuring stellar mastering by iconic engineer Kevin Gray, Audio Fidelity's 24K + Gold edition of this Rickie Lee Jones masterwork bests all prior editions. The audiophile label specializes in deluxe packaging with see-through slip cases and beautifully reproduced original graphics. As always, the original master tape was played back on a specially constructed vintage tube playback deck, with the analog masters put through the new "Kensei Audio Transformer," a process that adds even more life to the music.
You've never heard your favorite music sound this good! The clarity is
exceptional, you will hear deeper lows and crisper highs. Treat yourself to a
musical experience you've never had before! These new
24KT+ Gold CDs reproduce the ultimate sound of a classic recorded
performance without the irregular plated surfaces of standard aluminum discs.
Audio Fidelity's 24KT+ Gold CD series brings
you classic music in deluxe packaging with see-through slip cases using original
album art, all beautifully reproduced. They only use the original master mixes
played back on a specially constructed vintage playback deck. Here's where the
PLUS (+) comes in: The analog masters are put through their new proprietary
analog to digital converter which reinforces the resolution of the original
masters adding true "breath of life" to the music. Without any further sonic
manipulation the master is shipped directly to the manufacturing plant for
etching in "real time" onto the glass surface by laser. The end result of this
unique mastering process is a compact disc with the warm sound of the original
analog master tape combined with a genuine 24 karat gold surface free of any
type of physical defect making Audio Fidelity's 24KT+
Gold CD series truly one of a kind!
