Alison Krause + Union Station "Live" LP


Has anyome bought this yet? I have it coming but would like a preview if possible. I had the Hybrid SACD and sounded good on both formats.

I'm eager to hear your thoughts on how well this was mastered and pressed. thanx

Yes. This is a superbly mastered and manufactured album of great performances by Stan Ricker and MoFi. The musicians sound like they are right in the room with you (along with the crowd of thousands).
Yo Pawlowski,
A friend of mine purchased a copy from Acoustic Sounds that we have played several times. It ranks as a "twelve" on a scale from 1 - 10. It's on my Christmas Gift list in case you were wondering what to get me for Christmas. You probably should get one for yourself also.
We usually have 4 or 5 people at a listening session and it's just amazing how all the conversations stop when the stylus drops on this record.
As for reviewing it, all that I will offer is that you definitely want to buy this one before they sell out.
Hi, it sounds fantastic. The vinyl is very quiet and the recording quality is superb. As usual, her voice sounds angelic and the band's playing is top notch. Very clean and transparent transfer, I would say MoFi hit the ball out of the park with this one! Enjoy.
There's also a review on the LP set at www.musicangle.com (Michael Fremer's website).
I have it on LP and like others have said, it has a good you-are-there sound and on a couple of tracks, some absolutely startling bass dynamics. The only thing wrong with it is soundstaging, as it was an original digital recording. It doesn't have the soundstage width and depth of the best analog recordings. Highly recommended nevertheless.
