In Reply to: RE: best versions of Stevie Wonder's classic albums? posted by Quint on February 04, 2017 at 05:42:58
Concerning Songs in the Key of Life, I have the original Tamla cd, the DCC cd and the Japanese SHM-SACD. The SHM-SACD delivers the most detail, while also being the most analogue-like/non-clinical sounding of the three digital versions. I found the DCC cd to be a notable improvement to the Tamla CD. But, there's only a slight improvement as you go from the DCC disc to the SHM-SACD. If you already have the DCC cd and are on the fence about shelling out more money to purchase another digital version of the album, I'd say keep your $$$ and skip the SHM-SACD.
As far as I know, DCC never did any Stevie Wonder titles.
But, that aside, I agree with you. If you have the AF discs, you're pretty well set. The SHM-SACDs give a tad more, but I'm not sure they're worth the $40+ a pop unless you're a fanatic.
This is a public service announcement . . . WITH GUITARS!!!
Whoops, sorry about that - got my gold compact discs mixed up! Songs in the Key of Life is an AF effort, not DCC.
