As Per the Tower Records (Japan) website for this title:
"Direct conversion of master of the best condition copied from the original master tape of RVG Studio to DSD and converted the DSD data to SACD as it is. The SACD and CD layers that faithfully reproduce the sound of the original analog sound source are also newly pcmized from DSD data.
Mastering Engineer: Hiroyuki Tsuji. Mastering at King Records' Sekiguchidai Studio in October 2020."

A very good sounding SACD. Pretty clearly a flat transfer with minimal, if any tweaking. Though there is no real tape hiss present, suggesting a little bit of doctoring.

Given this was recorded back in 1970 the tape used has aquired the patina of age. Not a big issue though.

You could say it sounds like a calm, overcast day in the Amazon, with light rain falling.
