Warren Zevon Excitable Boy on Numbered Limited Edition Hybrid SACD from Audio Fidelity
The Hybrid SACD is Finally Back at Audio Fidelity: Marking the Label's First Releases on the Format in 10 Years
Mastered by Steve Hoffman at Stephen Marsh Mastering
Warren Zevon's Excitable Boy, includes the hit "Werewolves of London" and it's the record that brought Zevon to commercial attention and remains the best-selling album of his career. Excitable Boy announced once and for all that he was one of the most striking talents to emerge from the Los Angeles soft rock singer/songwriter community.
With this 1978 LP, Warren Zevon stepped forward as something of the dark prince of California. Jackson Browne once called Zevon "the first and foremost proponent of song noir." Excitable Boy threw in a mix of werewolves, mercenaries, drug abusers and paranoid spoiled brats, yet while frequently offering exceptional tenderness and insight. It was easy to see why Jackson was his mentor and Linda Ronstadt his patron angel.
The excellent personnel involved ensured this collection would truly stand the test of time. All at their creative peak, the 9-song set features production from Jackson Browne and Waddy Wachtel and a laundry list of stellar guest musicians and back up singers including Linda Ronstadt, Jennifer Warnes, Karla Bonoff, Russell Kunkel, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Jeff Porcaro and Rick Marotta.
This numbered limited edition Hybrid SACD version of Warren Zevon's Excitable Boy from Audio Fidelity has been mastered by Steve Hoffman at Stephen Marsh Mastering and is compatible with both CD and SACD players.
