Music Review: James Taylor - Sweet Baby James [Audio Fidelity 24K+ Gold]

Date Posted: 
September 6, 2011

For those of us whose vinyl copies of James Taylor's triple-platinum 1970 album Sweet Baby James have worn out over time, Audio Fidelity has released a limited-numbered edition of the masterpiece in their 24K+ Gold Compact Disc Series, which uses a unique process to create the kind of warm sound many feel has been lost on today's standard disc. As they describe it, they use the original mixes to create what they consider the best versions of each song to produce a disc with a 24-karat, defect-free gold surface.

Rush – Roll The Bones (24KT CD)

Roll The Bones is one of those Rush albums that was largely forgot. I remember the title being fairly strong, as my father purchased it when it originally came out (1991). Audio Fidelity has picked up the title and is attempting to restore some of the glory that it rightfully deserves. By remastering the original tapes to a current level and placing it onto a 24K gold CD, Audio Fidelity has made a release that is as close to what the band wanted as possible.

Judas Priest :: Hell Bent For Leather

It’s about time we got something remastered that really kicks ass.

I love 60’s and early 70’s rock classics as much as anyone, and yes I’ve got six different pressings of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon but I think we need a wider range of great rock records with sound quality to match. Kudos to Audio Fidelity and Steve Hoffman for doing a bone crushing job on this Judas Priest classic.

Alice Cooper :: Killer

This 24kt gold CD is a must-own for any Cooper collector or fan, or one who's keen to hear the best fidelity of a killer '70s rock 'n' roll record. It's incredibly well-manufactured, minus all the dynamic-killing compression common to new remasters of albums. The mastering engineer here is Steve Hoffman, whose own very large cult following regularly fellates his work on albums.
