This Single-Layer SHM-SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player!
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.
Featuring the sweet, soothing vocals of Karen Carpenter backed on vocals and accompanied by her pianist brother Richard Carpenter, this album compiles singles they released between 1969 and 1973. Richard named the album Singles 1969-1973 because he felt that "greatest hits" had been overused. The album contains true hits including "We've Only Just Begun", "Top Of the World", "Sing", and "(They Long To Be) Close To You".
