Bassist David Piltch and pianist Aaron Davis, veterans of Holly Cole's trio, recorded their first album together in 1996 live off the floor with musical friends including David's brother, the accomplished guitarist Rob Piltch and fellow Holly Cole band member Kevin Breit. Piltch and Davis composed most of these tunes, either individually or together; the album is rounded out with a Steve Earle cover, Kirsty MacColl's Last Day of Summer and the traditional folk song Black Is the Colour (Of My True Love's Hair).

Recorded in Analog

For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/2”, 30 ips NAB master tape was played on a modified TELEFUNKEN M15 Tape recorder with SAKI head, using a hi-end tube preamplifier with OCC silver cables. We did an analog transfer for each HiRes sampling and A & B comparisons were made with both the original LP, using the Kronos turntable, as well as with the best available CD, using the Nagra HD Dac and dCS Vivaldi DAC, throughout the process.

2xHD Mastering: René Laflamme
2xHD Executive Producer: André Perry

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!
