Mobile Fidelity Collection Volume 2 on Numbered-Edition Hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity

Decades-Spanning Sampler Showcases Classic Rock, Soul, Country-Folk, and New Wave Classics from Ray Charles, Foreigner, Doobie Brothers, Pretenders, and More

Here’s the demonstration disc for which you’ve been waiting. The successor to the imprint’s first collection ever made available for purchase by the public, Mobile Fidelity Collection Volume 2 showcases nine sterling tracks stemming from iconic classic rock, soul, new wave, and country-folk artists. Ideal for audiophiles as well as newcomers curious about Mobile Fidelity’s history, the compendium also functions as a diverse sampler and system test disc. Like all Mobile Fidelity releases, it is an extremely collectible, numbered-edition title.

Famous for realistic, balanced, and breath-of-life sonics, Mobile Fidelity has for more than three decades established the benchmarks for audiophile-grade sound quality—and continues to do so with definitive editions of the best records from history’s most legendary artists. Exhibiting the label’s award-winning organic presentation, the anthology picks off where the vocally focused first volume left off and throws a spotlight on tracks selected for their instrumental prowess.

You may have heard Foghat’s signature “Slow Ride” hundreds of times, but you’ve not truly experienced it until you hear the radio staple on this hybrid SACD. The same can be said for the Pretenders’ catchy “Back on the Chain Gang,” Foreigner’s arena favorite “Feels Like the First Time,” and the Doobie Brothers’ irrepressible “China Grove,” which here takes on unstoppable momentum thanks to an unlimited ceiling and bottom that allow every frequency to reach full potential.

A mix of other familiar, highly respectable material rounds out this powerful jukebox. Ray Charles’ penetrating “Come Rain Or Come Shine” plays on the same level as Gram Parsons’ bittersweet “We’ll Sweep the Ashes Out in the Morning” duet with Emmylou Harris. Similarly, Rickie Lee Jones’ evocative “Pirates (So Long Lonely Avenue)” operates on a related emotional scale with Marshall Crenshaw’s hopeful “Someday, Someway,” the singer’s 1982 Top 40 breakthrough.

Looking to reveal your system’s greatest strengths? Bursting with music that will help your stereo come alive with three-dimensional images, appear with huge soundstages, and revel in delicate textures, Mobile Fidelity Collection Volume 2 epitomizes what high-end audio is all about: Engaging, masterful performances rendered in exalted sound that brings you to the event and closer to your favorite artists.
