"Direct Disk" is to LP what SACD is to CD. Incredible dynamics. Own one to understand (and this is a good one to own)

Edowa Shimizu played "I Thought It Was You" from start to finish at The Loft on 10-Aug-2019. Completely mind-blowing on that setup and blasting across seven custom Klipschorns. Before that I was only familiar with the shorter cut off the Sunlight album. Shortly after I had to go ask him what version it was that he played.

It is really unfortunate that this hasn't been pressed since 1979? Someone please fix that.

Needs a vinyl reissue! C'mon! Maybe MOV could do it? Along with Dedication and The Piano?
