Clive Bradley was an idiosyncratic, enigmatic, erratic but pragmatic musician and arranger who meandered mercurially through the corridors of life, leaving in his wake a contour not unlike that of the great Mississippi River. Bradley never played Pan, his instrument was the piano; yet he meticulously developed a synergistic relationship with the hypnotic, charismatic Desperadoes at the summit of Laventille that spawned a bitter-sweet saga spanning four decades. Together they earned acclaim and respect from the steelband fraternity of Trinidad & Tobago, the Diaspora and beyond, winning the coveted title of Panorama Champions on six ecstatic occasions.
"The Pacific Micronics High Definition Compatible Digital recording process HDCD was co-invented by well-known audio engineer Keith O. Johnson and computer software designer Michael Pflaumer. It utilizes a highly sophisticated encode/decode system that greatly reduces both additive and subtractive distortions, which are manifested during conventional digital recording and playback.
"The unprecedented sonic fidelity of the HDCD process has been achieved by first identifying the additive artifacts which tend to make reproduced music sound harsh, (irritating) and congested; as well as the subtractive ones which generate sterile and uninvolved sound, mainly as a result of inherent deficiencies in conventional encoding processes. The HDCD digital signal process cancels the additive distortions while simultaneously providing additional information which gives the listener important cues about the recording. This ensures that each listening experience is an event not easily forgotten.
"When an HDCD encoded signal is fed to conventional playback equipment the additional information is perceived as a clear improvement in fidelity. However, when that same signal is fed to an HDCD decoder, it is reconstructed as high-resolution, audibly superior sound of a quality previously associated solely with first-generation analogue master tapes and direct microphone feeds. This technology literally allows recordings to captivate the attention of the listener to the extent where one feels that one is part of the original performance." - Simeon L. Sandiford, 1999
