Artist: The Alan Parsons Project (DAD 1035)
Title: I Robot
Label: Classic Records (www.classicrecords.com)
Genre: Rock-Progressive-Pop
Format: Digital Audio Disc-DVD CD (24/96 "Master Tape Sound")

Have you been looking for a musical experience that defines perfectionism, bringing out every instrument as clear as a bell, including every nuance in a song? Classic Records has an awesome high-end audio process that will catch any audiophile’s ear. The recording process is an exacting and scrutinizing transfer of analog to digital, using a master tape recorded from a live microphone feed. The sound is just extraordinary. Just when you thought you have heard the best possible sound, another process is created. This is a pristine perfected musical transfer. Classic Records chooses only the best releases from an artists’ catalog to commit to disc. This label will help you to forget Mobile Fidelity in a heartbeat.

After toiling in the studio as an engineer, making classic rock and roll albums for the Beatles and Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons decided to create his own studio band. Lyricist and songwriter Eric Wolfson joined him, along with other studio musicians, and The Alan Parsons Project was born. Their second, and now classic release was "I Robot."

The futuristic title track starts with a slow entrance gradually introducing layered synthesizers, then it reaches a crescendo, and kicks into high gear, getting you ready for "I Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You," which was a big hit when this album was first released in 1977. "Breakdown" is my favorite, and the bass sounds just incredible. This album came on the wings of "Tales of Mystery and Imagination," which was released two years earlier. Each succeeding track builds upon the Orwellian storyline, with great music as a backdrop. There were to be many more successful concept albums in the future for Parson’s and his ever evolving and revolving session musicians.

I went out and bought a DVD player specifically to hear all of this wonderful music from Classic Records. Watching movies never really entered the picture… well, maybe later. This is going to be the only way to record music for all artists very soon. The future holds tremendous promise for the entertainment industry in all aspects of audio and visual. It’s an exciting time to be alive.

Note: Stay tuned, as I will be reviewing the entire Classic Records catalog of D.A.D. discs. Look for a new review every week!

The Sound Quest

It started with spinning records, maybe even 8 track cassettes, in fact, your whole life, you've enjoyed great music & sought out superior sound. But you say to yourself, "Man, I just bought a DVD player & a new home entertainment system, there's no way I can afford to upgrade my stereo set up too. . ."

Well guess what buddy? YOU ALREADY DID!

That's right, now you can taste the exclusive world of HiFi sound with CLASSIC RECORDS's revolutionary 24/96 DADs!

Very few people know that the existing standard for DVD video discs can also accommodate world class, SHIMMERING, STUNNING, audiophile, sound quality that absolutely BLOWS CDs AWAY!

Here's the technical yada, yada from our engineering Dept**.:

"Ya see there ah, yer average CD is 16 bit with a 44.1 K frequency range. Our proprietary consumer digital media takes advantage of DVD Videos existing specification for 24 bit, 96 K resolution. This has resulted in the most advanced and best sounding consumer digital media available in today's audio market ."

Furthermore, let us dispel some common myths about digital audio, as all digital audio is not created equal!

Let us begin with the mischievious MP3 file. While commonly believed to be equivalent to CD quality, in actuality, MP3s utilize a compression technology that degrades sound quality approximately 20% when compared to the original CD. Now consider that most CDs are at least 30-40% inferior to our DAD audio products, and well, you get the picture - er ah rather the sound!

Well now maybe you can live with mediocre sound, but look at that cute new DVD player over there on the shelf. Doesn't it deserve some happiness too. All video & no audio makes DVD a dull player.

Get the maximum pleasure & value from your DVD player and visit CLASSIC RECORDS TODAY!
