And even those are really trebly - but their vinyl original makes them less trebly than some others, and they're full of detail and dynamics and more, well, analogue sounding. When I want to be jolted out of my seat in a good way by the acoustic guitar intro of a track like "Watch the Sunrise," I listen to a high-res needledrop.
But when I want to listen to more than one or two songs in a row, and I want the most ear-pleasing, natural, and just pretty sounding Big Star, it's the Line version all the way IMHO. The great thing about the Line version Big Star - #1 Record / Radio City (SACD) that it avoids sounding too trebly or analytical, but doesn't fall into the opposite trap of Big Star - #1 Record / Radio City (SACD) muffled or veiled.

Sometime next week i will be posting a thread with a six-way waveform shootout for the first 2 albums, and will link it in this thread. RickJOct 11, Location: Cool City. RhettOct 11, The recording is excellent with a full rich sound with a nice low end, fabulous drum work and twanging guitars and crisp vocals.
This music stands the test of time and most assuredly influneced a generation of music that came after it. Namely Tom Petty and the alternative phase of music. It possesses catchy licks and hooks that are very addictive. A very excellent sacd both musically and sonically. Highly recommended. Was this review helpful to you? Review by arvindmohindra July 15, 4 of 4 found this review helpful. First and foremost both the individual albums - 1 Record and Radio City are stellar albums epitomizing or rather considered to be originators of the concept of "power pop" Liner Notes begin by quoting Encylopedia Britannica - Big Star: American band that during its brief existence in the early s helped define power pop, a style in which bright melodies and tunefully boyish vocals are propelled by urgent rhythms Encylopedia Britannica.
Alex Chilton is superb and Chris Bell is equally great at taut compositions and great vocals. Location: Quebec, Canada. Chris R and joelee like this. Location: Los Angeles. Location: Sensationen - Wilfried - Berg Und Tal. Look forward to this!
BruceJul 29, Location: Ireland. Quote from John Fry. I love the music and the cast of characters: Chris, Alex Andy and Jody. Sit back and enjoy the definitive digital versions of 1 Record and Radio Citytwo of my three favorite albums.

I'm a little confused here - Concord music just released remastered versions of 1 Record and Radio City in - each with a bonus track. So now Ardent Mental Turmoil - Coercion - Delete Concord are reissuing these titles once again - just a few years later than the Kima Bakani Bekia - Various - Mega Raï Granted - the reissues were loud - as well as the box set for that matter.
I have this one and the early 90's 2 for 1 version. RhettJul 29,
