Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra (Susskind) – ‘Holst: The Planets’  An SACD review by Mark Jordan

Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra (Susskind) – ‘Holst: The Planets’ An SACD review by Mark Jordan

Where would modern science fiction movie soundtracks be without Holst’s ‘The Planets’? Ripping off something else, I suppose. But this new Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab restoration of the wonderful recording by Walter Susskind and the Saint Louis Symphony serves to remind us that Holst’s most famous piece is far more than a mere showpiece. Susskind was one of the few conductors to recognize and respect the subtle, mystical soul of this music. His performance may be more for connoisseurs than for the casual fan, but it is the sort of the performance that could turn the latter into the former. And the recorded sound captured in this reissue is enough to turn any listener into a permanent fan of Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab. read more…

Blood, Sweat and Tears – ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears 3’ An SACD review by Nicholas D. Satullo

If someone asked me who Mobile Fidelity are, I would probably say something like this: They used to make high quality vinyl LPs and Redbook CDs (even turning them into gold discs, literally), and perform some analog mastering tricks that I never really cared to learn, just so long as I subjectively thought the disc sounded better than a true comparator – the non-MoFi disc, as it were. read more…

Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra (Slatkin) – ‘Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition’ An SACD review by Mark Jordan

It depends. That’s my answer to the inevitable question this review will raise: Who will want to rush out and buy this disc? Fans of Mussorgsky may not find any new ground covered in this reissue of Leonard Slatkin’s conservative performance of ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’, and devotees to modern digital sound might find that this analogue recording is smoother than an orchestra really sounds live in concert, but aficionados of fine analog sound will be in heaven to hear the creamy richness of this 1975 recording engineered by the legendary Marc Aubort. read more…

Minnesota Orchestra (Skrowaczewski) – ‘Ravel: Bolero and Assorted Orchestral Works’ An SACD review by Mark Jordan

Either you love it or you hate it: ‘Bolero’. For those who love it, it is a hypnotic buildup of almost unbearably sexy tension. For those who loathe it, it’s death by repetition. But before swearing it off, any listener should be aware of the speed issue. read more…

The Kinks are one of those bands that if you grew up during the 70s and 80s, are likely to be instantly recognizable. This work, ‘Low Budget’, to be released on May 6th by Mobile Fidelity, is one of their most popular recordings and home to many of their best-known songs. read more…

Isaac Hayes – ‘Hot Buttered Soul’ An SACD review by Brett Rudolph

Some of the most influential and best-loved albums were released before many of us were born, or at a time when we were too young to pay any attention to them. Even when they are re-released years later, many of those who heard these albums in their “original” vintage vinyl form are sure that they sounded better when replayed on an analogue system. read more…
