1983 Album on SHM-SACD!
The Green Album is a 1983 album by English musician Eddie Jobson, former member of Roxy Music, who had also played with Curved Air, Frank Zappa, UK, and Jethro Tull. Jobson performs keyboards, violins, and vocals on the album, the only time he sang lead (even though he had backing vocals with both Roxy Music and Zappa). It features ex-Gentle Giant guitarist Gary Green on some tracks along with other musicians loosely referred to as "Zinc."
The album features a mostly synthesizer based synthpop / progressive rock sound and is a concept album of sorts, with the lyrics centring around a somewhat Orwellian dystopic future society where everything is tinted green. At the end of the song "Listen to Reason" Jobson sings the line "Green is now, Pink is next." However, no "Pink Album" was ever recorded, even if it was planned. Jobson instead went on to record the album Theme of Secrets on the Private Music label. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Jobson also built a successful career as a composer of TV and film soundtracks. He scored nearly 100 episodes of the TV series Nash Bridges.
SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
