    Just picked it up tonight and I must say that it's pretty good. Of course there are limitations to the recording because of it's age, and there are times when the bass seems a bit overdone. The guitar and piano solos on I FEEL THE EARTH MOVE are in the surround channels, and occasionally, there are vocals spread throughout the mix on other tracks as well. For the most part, the music sounds better than the vocals; they sound like they're heavily compressed, like there's a curtain covering the vocals. I haven't listened to the STEREO version yet, but I'm sure it'll be good. Also, the two bonus tracks from the recently remastered regular CD are on here and sound quite good.[​IMG]
    Cheers!

    Lee, I have the stereo SACD, and it is a marked improvement over the Sony remastered CD or the MasterSound gold CD. True, it is not the greatest recording by any means, but the stereo SACD is better than the CDs. If you like Carole King, definitely pick up the SACD. I read on Audio Asylum that different people did the authoring for the stereo tracks on the stereo-only and multi-channel SACDs. If true, then I would guess that the stereo tracks on these discs sound different. I was planning on getting the multi-channel SACD for the multi-channel track, but now I am doubly intrigued.

    I have the original quad recording of Tapestry, so I'm going to go looking for the mc SACD this weekend. I'll be interested to see if they used the original quad mix or have remixed it for this release.
