Marshall Crenshaw , 1982 Mobile Fidelity SACD
Marshall Crenshaw's debut album released in 1982 is a masterpiece of power pop. Released about the same time as the rise of MTV and all those nasty 80's videos, Crenshaw released a pop friendly album that has stood the test of time. Naturally I was excited to see this album released by MOFI and I must say that they have done an excellent job in re-presenting this recording in glorious SACD!
This mofi is an excellent balanced mix with a high degree of instrumental clarity and separation. The drums are a key part of the mix and are nicely contrasted and not in your face. Crenshaw's vocals are in the front but not so far that you feel like it is somewhere else (a complaint i have with the Pretenders Mofi release).
If you are not familiar with this album you should give this a wee spin and if you like what you hear I would recommend you snag this on SACD.
...oh yeah and get ready to dance !
