The Rolling Stones Love You Live on Limited Edition Japanese Import SHM-SACD
The Stones 1977 double album Love You Live, the fourth live release of their career, is one of two distinct halves. The first LP was mostly recorded live in Paris in 1976 with “If You Can’t Rock Me”/”Get Off Of My Cloud” from a London show in the same year, with “Fingerprint File” from a Toronto concert in 1975.
The second LP was recorded over two nights at Toronto’s El Mocambo Tavern in March 1977. The first four songs recorded in the club have echoes of the band’s earliest days as they are covers of some Chess Records classics. The album cover features a painting by Andy Warhol with some pencil mark additions by Mick, which Mr. Warhol was none too pleased with.
Released in between Black and Blue and Some Girls, Love You Live finds the band in fine arena rock form ripping through classics such as "Honkey Tonk Woman," "Tumbling Dice," "Brown Sugar," "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "Sympathy for the Devil" among others. As Keith put it: "It's a two-disc album, and the result is that one disc is Mick's and the other was mine."
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.
