Audio Fidelity To Release Soft Rock Legends Bread “The Best of Bread” On 4.0 Quadraphonic Hybrid SACD


“A true classic filled with rediscovered treasures...!”

Camarillo, CA – With many exciting releases scheduled throughout 2015, Marshall Blonstein's Audio Fidelity starts the New Year off with the release of soft rock legends Bread “The Best of Bread” on 4.0 Quadraphonic Hybrid SACD! This 1973 recording is a great collection of music from Bread, the popular 1970's band best known for their mellow, smooth, melodic and often mournful tunes. Many of the classic Bread tunes included in this set live on through soft rock stations everywhere.

Lead singer David Gates crooned his way into America's heart, and starting with “Make It With You” quickly spun off hits like “Everything I Own,” “Diary,” “Baby I'm A Want You,” “It Don't Matter To Me” and “If.” At times, their songs had a more upbeat feel as with “Mother Freedom,” but they always retain that same soothing blend of soulful lyrics and gentle music. This album covers all the early hits and more delivered with a deceptively breezy tone by one of pop's purest vocalists.

Audio Fidelity reassembled all the original masters of the tracks that appeared on the album release rather than work from the compiled "Best of..." master thus giving the recording a completely fresh, updated sound.

TRACKS:
Make It With You
Everything I Own
Diary
Baby I'm-a Want You
It Don't Matter to Me
If
Mother Freedom
Down on My Knees
Too Much Love
Let Your Love Go
Look What You've Done
Truckin'

Produced by David Gates
Associate Producer: James Griffin
Stereo CD and SACD mastering for this release by Steve Hoffman at Stephen Marsh Mastering, Los Angeles, CA
4.0 analog to High Definition DSD Digital Transfer by Gus Skinas at Super Audio Center, Boulder, CO

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

Alternative Rock: mariaFausta -Million Faces

Release Date: November 12, 2017
Label: Independent
Website mariaFausta is a European alternative rock vocalist. Recently her album Million Faces became available. I knew that she would probably sing with an accent and she does. Here is the thing with that aspect of a recording artist, either you cannot get past it or you like it, there is no middle ground. After that process and you decide you like it, you realize it is part of the charisma and make up of what the artist is presenting. For my ears things landed on the positive side in all aspects.

Maria’s sound is a varied approach that works very well. It certainly is alternative rock and one of the most original and different albums I have heard in 2017. I hear a ton of instrumental music and sometimes find it difficult with redundancy regarding my words. That is something that all writers worry about. You are cognizant of that fact at all times. Well let me tell you, this music was a total joy to hear and then have the opportunity to p…

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…
