Lyrics [DVD][*] -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Before this album was released in 1976, George Benson was known largely for his Wes Montgomery/Charlie Christian-inspired licks and his stints with Jack McDuff and Miles Davis. Breezin' was a million-selling, Grammy Award-winning LP and made Benson an "overnight" star. The reasons for that success were Tommy LiPuma's topnotch production, Claus Ogerman's ethereal arrangements, and Benson's soulful vocals on Leon Russell's ballad "This Masquerade." Backed by Fourplay drummer Harvey Mason, master percussionist Ralph MacDonald, bassist Stanley Banks, rhythm guitarist Phil Upchurch, and keyboardists Ronnie Scott and Jorge Dalto, Benson and the crew laid down the moods and grooves we now call "contemporary jazz." From the soft-rock of "Six to Four," the midtempo backbeat of the title track, and the Latin-tinged tunes "Affirmation," "So This Is Love?" and "Lady," Benson's fleet-fingered Ibanez guitar lines make the rare leap from straight-ahead to the mainstream. Added to the CD reissue are three bonus tracks not on the LP: a snappy and soulful rendition of "Down Here on the Ground," from the movie Cool Hand Luke, a Bob James-like funk number "Shark Bite," and the single-edit version of "This Masquerade." George Benson was never the same after this record and neither was jazz. --Eugene Holley, Jr. Description George Benson's "Breezin'" presents the original 1976 album in its entirety in 6-Channel, advanced resolution surround sound from the original master tapes, and also remixed in 96/24 stereo. This program features the monster hit single "This Masquerade" plus 5 more original album tracks. Tracks: Breezin', This Masquerade, Six to Four, Affirmation, So This Is Love?, Lady.

"Alan Parsons, The Turn Of A Friendly Card - HDAD"

ALAN PARSONS - THE TURN OF A FRIENDLY CARD - Out of print. The Classic RECORDS Hybrid DVD Audio Disc (HDAD) is a two-sided DVD disc with 24/192 PCM data playable on DVD Audio players on one side, and 24/96 PCM data playable on DVD Video players on the other side. The Classic HDAD is a truly universal DVD disc playable on all DVD players. So if you have a DVD video player, you can play the DVD Video side of the HDAD - insert the disc with the Blue center ring facing up and enjoy 24/96 playback resolution. On a DVD Audio player, simply flip the disc over with the Red ring facing up and enjoy 24/192 playback resolution. With two of Alan Parsons Project's best songs, the lovely ballad "Time" and the wavy-sounding "Games People Play," The Turn of a Friendly Card remains one of this group's most enjoyable albums. Parsons' idea, the subject of the album's six tracks, centers around the age-old temptation of gambling and its stranglehold on the human psyche. On "Games People Play," vocalist Lenny Zakatek sounds compelling and focused, giving the song a seriousness that aids in realization of the album's concept. This 24/194 HDAD was made from a transfer of the original flat analog master tape obtained directly from Alan Parsons and offers a level of detail and clarity never before heard from the great recording and musical composition. 1. May Be a Price to Pay 2. Games People Play 3. Time 4. I Don't Wanna Go Home 5. The Gold Bug 6. The Turn of a Friendly Card i. The Turn of a Friendly Card (part one) ii. Snake Eyes iii. The Ace of Swords iv. Nothing Left to Lose v. The Turn of a Friendly Card (part two) The Classic 24/96 Digital Audio Disc DAD is designed to be an audiophile musical reference. The process starts with the encoding of an analog signal from a live microphone feed or more commonly from an analog master tape. The highly sophisticated Analog to Digital converter (A to D) samples the analog signal 96,000 times per second (96kHz) and assigns a numerical value to each sample point.. the 96kHz sampling rate is more than twice the 44,100 (44kHz) sampling rate used on standard CDs. The numerical value assigned at 96kHz - about every 10.4 microseconds - is stored as a 24 bit digital word. The significance of a 24 bit digital word is that there are 16.8 million different potential values for each 24 bit word. By contrast there are only 65,536 different potential values for a 16 bit word on a normal CD. The additional 8 bits on a DAD allows for over 16 million additional voltage values to represent the original analog signal. Further, 24 bit resolution offers 144dB of dynamic range from the softest to the loudest musical note. At 144 dB of dynamic range we greatly exceed even the dynamic range available on the world's finest analog tape machines. For the first time in history of digital audio, we can provide Master Tape Sound MTS. After the analog signal is encoded, the resulting 24 bit/96kHz digital data stream is stored on a large computer hard disk. The raw data is then transferred to a post production facility for "authoring" - a process that results in the creation of a digital tape called a DLT that is sent to the disc manufacturing plant. At the plant, the DLT is used to make a "glass master" which produces stampers that are used to injection mold DAD discs. In all, the process is quite a bit more involved than making CDs but is worth the extra effort when you hear what this technological wonder has to offer.
