Another keeper from the Tower Records (Japan) and ECM.

Sonically very good. I don't know enough about the DR history of this title, but as far as I can tell it has not been further compressed for this SACD. It comes in with a Dynamic Range average of 11. Clearly though, it must have had a nudge at some point in the more distant past to get that figure.

The album was recorded by Tony May at IBC Studios, London, in 1972 (same studio where The Who recorded "Tommy"). The mix from multichannel to stereo master tape may have involved the use of equalization and analogue compression, common practices when preparing a tape for LP mastering.
