    I see it says Bernie Grundman mastered this but my gatefold shows it to be Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab. Anyone here that can clarify? Thanks

    Eagles? Jackson Browne? Linda Ronstadt? Singer/songwriter J D Souther has had a hand in them all. If you like the brand of music this album is a real gem. You truly can't go wrong. His voice is like an ice cream soda - his lyrics romantically melancholic and his melodies simply beautiful. Why this isn't revered as a classic West Coast album of the 70's beats me. Eagles, Ronstadt and the West Coast 'wrecking crew' are all on there at some point along with a sublime acoustic bass from Stanley Clarke on 'Silver Blue'. Other Souther albums never lived up to the promise - but this is the real deal.

    PS. The Japanese vinyl pressing P-6434Y is simply stunning audio.
