    Thanks to Martice for the reference material CD. Playing it through on my 555ES opened my ears to Rebecca Pidgeon's wonderful take on Spanish Harlem.

    Bought the SACD of The Raven on Thursday...WOW! The CD layer is one of the best PCM recordings I've heard, but even then, the SACD has that airiness and total lack of harshness...like a veil has been lifted. Amazing stuff.

    Thanks also to KeithH and Lee Scoggins for recommending this SACD. I now know why audiophiles strive for material like this.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Although not available on SACD, Rebecca Pidgeon's The New York Girls' Club and Four Marys are sonically stunning as well. The music is excellent too.

    Joe,

    Glad to help. The Raven was one of the first SACDs I bought about two years ago, and like you, I was in audio Nirvana when I first heard "Spanish Harlem" on SACD. At present, I have about 75 SACDs, but The Raven is still one of my "reference discs". Truly outstanding.


    Justin,

    I agree with you regarding the other Pidgeon titles. Four Marys is available on a 24/96 DAD that sounds great.

    Lee, I hope you are successful in your efforts. It's definitely time for more Rebecca Pidgeon on SACD.

    I would LOVE SACDs of The New York Girls' Club and Four Marys, and I know I'm not alone!
