Description:Rhythm & Blues legend Mighty Sam McClain's first release for AudioQuest Music received every possible accolade including Pulse! Magazine's Blues Album of the Year for 1993. This XRCD release in 2002 restores the legendary recording with astonishing resolution and fidelity.

The folloing is an exerpt from the notes by Joe Harley, the producer of the original recording session, written for this XRCD release in 2002.

"When we gathered together at Ocean Way studios in Hollywood in November of '92 to record Mighty Sam McClain's debut album for AudioQuest Music little did we know the impact the resulting release would have on a generation of soul/blues lovers. Give It Up To Love was hailed by Rolling Stone and virtually every blues publication in the world as a stone classic of the genre.

It was most gratifying when, in late 1996, JVC chose Give It Up To Love to be one of their initial releases in the XRCD format. For the first time, I was able to hear more clearly what we had recorded back in '92. The sonic improvement was obvious.

Over the past few years, the XRCD process itself has undergone a series of improvements... In 1999 JVC introduced an improved XRCD, called "XRCD2". Among other things the refinements included the additional use of the JVC Digital K2 regenerator to eliminate time based jitter, and the ure of the super sophisticated JVC K2 Rubidium word clock. Thus, the version of Give It Up To Love that you now hold in your hands, is the finest sounding version of this classic blues album ever released. Enjoy!"

Original release produced by Joe Harley. Recorded by Michael C. Ross in November, 1992. Pure analog, direct-to-two-track live recording except for minimal overdubbing on two tracks. This XRCD release was produced by Akira Taguchi. XRCD mastered by Alan Yoshida.
