Doobie Brothers' Toulouse Street features doses of southern blues, country, folk, gospel and CCR swamp grooves, presented here on an audiophile CD from Mobile Fidelity. As word spread upon its release, the entire album was all over radio. A classic done justice on this high quality release.
Why audiophile mastering on CD?
While the sonic benefits of audiophile LPs obviously include less noise and better dynamics, there are many advantages of audiophile CDs. In similarity to the LPs, Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MFSL) 'Ultradisc' CD releases are mastered from the original master tapes or the album (hence the 'Original Master Recording' at the top of every sleeve) and pressed on gold CDs. This reduces the problems of many standard CD releases, which are often mastered from fifth or sixth generation copies, which leads to a poorer sounding representation of the original recording. Mastering from the original recording allows every detail and nuance from the original recording to be translated to this release.
Furthermore, the sound of CDs is highly influenced by the accuracy and timing of the digital 1s and 0s reflected off the CD surface onto the CD player's laser. The gold surface used on these releases reflects 1s and 0s more accurately than a standard CD surface, which leads to a much smoother sound with better dynamics. Overall, the releases have a much more analog and natural sound without any of the harshness found on many standard CDs. Mobile Fidelity have become famous for the quality of their LP releases - now you can enjoy the brilliance of their mastering processes on this Ultradisc CD.
This is a hybrid SACD which will play on both standard CD players and SACD players. You can enjoy the MFSL mastering on a standard CD player but also the sonic benefits of an SACD on an SACD player.
