TWO EXCELLENT SIDES for this Six-Eye pressing, including a near-White Hot A++ to A+++ side two! This album has Bennett singing a collection of ballads, and when you hear it with this kind of transparency and immediacy it REALLY works. He’s one of our favorite singers, so it’s a real treat to find a copy with this kind of sound.
A++, rich and full with big time immediacy. The soundfield has real depth, and the transparency is wonderful. So good!
A++ to A+++, even better than side one! Albums like this live and die by the reproduction of the vocals, and this side really nails it. There’s plenty of space and openness, and the presence is startling. Tony Bennett is right there in the listening room.
