The Band Stage Fright on Limited Edition Japanese Import SHM-SACD

A sharp stylistic and thematic detour away from its first two albums, the Band’s Stage Fright is a compelling snapshot of a group coping with massive success and internal changes. Recorded in 1970 at the Woodstock Playhouse, the set shivers with raw emotions, dark confessionals, and intense singing. Largely devoid of the quintet’s trademark all-for-one harmony vocals, Stage Fright is an utterly distinctive piece of the Band’s catalog - and a historic landmark that’s a necessary part of any music collection.

Splintered camaraderie and personal demons appear in now-famous songs such as the title track, “The Shape I’m In,” and “The W.S. Walcott Medicine Show.” The music is rife with palpable tension, and as a credit to the Band’s unique sound, absolutely singular. It’s impossible to think of any other group playing these tunes. Robertson’s balladic ode to his daughter, “All La Glory,” featuring a gorgeous vocal turn from Levon Helm, provides a welcome and sunny contrast to the album's darker themes.

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. 

Features:
• SHM-SACD
• 2-channel Single Layer SACD
• Two-channel SACD layer only, to secure enough reflectance and not to compress DSD file
• Label of the disc is printed with a special green ink called 'Onsho Shiyou,' which minimizes diffuse reflection
• Carefully selected master audio is used, from existing DSD files to newly converted from analog tapes
• This disc will ONLY work on a Super Audio Disc Player
