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.
Rod Stewart owned the early 1970s. When he wasn’t recording great sets with the
Faces, he was redefining how folk, country, and soul music could be folded under
rock’s umbrella. Filled with first-rate originals and terrific interpretations
of classics, Every Picture Tells A Story remains Stewart’s watershed moment, a
brilliant synthesis of organic warmth, earthy tones, raucous romance, and loose
"Without greatly altering his approach, Rod Stewart perfected his blend of
hard rock, folk, and blues on his masterpiece, Every Picture Tells a Story.
Marginally a harder-rocking album than Gasoline Alley -- the Faces blister on
the Temptations cover "(I Know I'm) Losing You," and the acoustic title track
goes into hyper-drive with Mick Waller's primitive drumming -- the great triumph
of Every Picture Tells a Story lies in its content. Every song on the album,
whether it's a cover or original, is a gem, combining to form a romantic, earthy
portrait of a young man joyously celebrating his young life. Of course, "Maggie
May" -- the ornate, ringing ode about a seduction from an older woman -- is the
centerpiece, but each song, whether it's the devilishly witty title track or the
unbearably poignant "Mandolin Wind," has the same appeal. And the covers,
including definitive readings of Bob Dylan's "Tomorrow Is Such a Long Time" and
Tim Hardin's "Reason to Believe," as well as a rollicking "That's All Right,"
are equally terrific, bringing new dimension to the songs. It's a beautiful
album, one that has the timeless qualities of the best folk, yet one that rocks
harder than most pop music -- few rock albums are quite this powerful or this
rich." - allmusic.com
