Steve Winwood's Breakthrough Solo Album!
Steve Winwood's voice has always granted him the advantage of instant recognition; add to this a musicianship that has been employed in dozens of sessions over the past four decades, and the result is a prodigious talent that runs like a vein of gold through rock music. Arc of a Diver, released at the end of 1980 after a long period of self-imposed retreat, is a triumphant resurgence for the musical genius. With the help of Viv Stanshall and Will Jennings, Winwood's faith in music was again restored and in just a few short years he would be among the top-selling vocalists in the world.
"Utterly unencumbered by the baggage of his long years in the music business, Winwood reinvents himself as a completely contemporary artist on this outstanding album, leading off with his best solo song, "While You See a Chance." Winwood also plays all the instruments." -William Ruhlmann, allmusic.com
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.
