1978 Album from Super Group of John Wetton, Eddie Jobson, Bill Bruford, & Allan Holdworth!

This is the self-titled 1978 debut album from the super group of John Wetton, Eddie Jobson, Bill Bruford, and Allan Holdsworth. The album features the singles "In the Dead of Night" and "Mental Medication."

Eddie Jobson was a member of Roxy Music, Jethro Tull. Wetton was also a member of Roxy Music as well as King Crimson, Uriah Heep and Wishbone Ash. Bill Bruford was the original drummer for the group Yes from 1968-1972. He also performed for a number of acts including Genesis in 1976. Bruford also performed on various occasions with the group King Crimson. Allan Holdsworth released 12 studio albums as a solo artist and is best known for his work in jazz fusion. He has been cited as an influence by such guitarists as Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani, Alex Lifeson and more. Frank Zappa once praised him during an interview with Noe Goldwasser as "one of the most interesting guys on guitar on the planet."

"All three of U.K.'s albums are enjoyable, but the debut sports the most interest, since it spotlights their remarkable fit as a band for the first time." -Mike DeGagne,

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.

• Super High Material Super Audio CD
• SHM-SACD Stereo SACD Layer
• Single-Layer Stereo SHM-SACD, to secure enough reflectance and not to compress DSD file.
• Label of the disc is printed with a special green ink called 'Onsho Shiyou,' which minimizes diffuse reflection.
• Carefully selected master audio is used, from existing DSD files to newly converted from analog tapes.
• This Single-Layer SHM-SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player! It will NOT play on conventional CD Players!
