"I love the HDAD format. Great sound if you have the right equipment. So far, my favorite release in this format is Muddy Waters 'Folk Singer.' Classic Records, the audiophile label specializing in HDAD (Hybrid Digital Audio Disc) and high-gram vinyl pressings, has released Pete Townshend's 1972 solo album on HDAD. The results are mixed. A few of the songs sound a little thin, while others are closer to what we have come to expect from this high-resolution format. Classic Records promises "master tape sound" and that's probably what we're getting here. It's just that some master tapes sound better than others. If you are an audiophile and like Pete Townshend, then by all means give this a listen. It is NOT multichannel/surround, however, so don't buy it thinking that. It is stereo.
'Who Came First' is Townshend's first, and one of his best solo albums. It's been called "homespun, charming, personal, and low-key," which it is. The album has probably never been presented in a better sounding format than this HDAD version. Just don't expect miracles.
