Description:Special limited SHM-SACD edition!

SHM-SACD stands for Super High Material Super-Audio CDs. This is a single-layer, stereo-only SACD pressed on special SHM discs utilizing high-quality polycarbonate material originally developed for LCD panels. SHM-SACD is the best digital format yet and provides no-compromise, ultimate digital sound that is tantalizingly analog-like. Recommended for serious audiophiles who owns an SACD player!

Between 1965 and 1968, piano virtuoso Oscar Peterson made an incredible series of recordings called "Exclusively For My Friends" in the private home of MPS producer Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer in front of a small number of invited guests. Brunner-Schwar rolled the tapes and recorded these intimate sesions with superb sound quality. The Way I Really Play captured Peterson at his powerful peak with bassist Sam Jones and drummer Bobby Durham.

Interestingly, this single-layer, SHM-SACD was sourced from the same DSD masters used for the Universal's hybrid SACDs released in 2003. However, the direct comparison reveals an incredible sonic differences. The SHM-SACD sounds far more powerful, open, and more analog-like, with the piano sounding bigger with a fuller sonority and the drums sounding sharper and more explosive. Even if you own the 2003 hybrid SACD, like myself, it is well worth purchasing this incredible SHM-SACD version!

Recorded April 1968 in the private home studio of Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer in Germany. Originally released by MPS. This limited SHM-SACD was sourced from 2003 DSD masters produced by Universal Germany.

Please note: This is NOT a hybrid SACD. You need an SACD player to play it! It does NOT contain any multi-channel tracks!
