"To me Allan Holdsworth is number one." - Eddie Van Halen "... well worth revisiting ... remains one of Holdsworth's better solo recordings, overall, certainly one of his most consistently high octane ... this remastered reissue does it justice both sonically and by bringing it back." - All About Jazz Part of a series of remastered reissues from influential guitarist Allan Holdsworth, Hard Hat Area was originally released in 1993 and finds Holdsworth leading a quartet consisting of keyboardist Steve Hunt, bassist Skúli Sverrisson and drummer Gary Husband.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
