Details

A Sonic Delight and Must-Have SACD! Exceptional Acoustic Recording and Audio Quality! The original Blue Coast Collection earned international acclaim using the proprietary recording technique called Extended Sound Environment (E.S.E.). E.S.E. captures live performances without the use of headphones, overdubs or digital effects and suggests a new standard in acoustic recording. This long anticipated release of Blue Coast Collection 2 will satisfy fans of quality music and transparent sound with its carefully chosen line up of emotionally honest and sonically stunning songs. Featuring performances by Keith Greeninger, Dayan Kai, Jane Selkye, Chris Key, Brain Bryan Mantia, Garett Brennan, Jenna Mammina, Matt Rollings, Chi McClean, Luis Perez and Houston Jones! Blue Coast Records aspires to preserve the traditions of excellence in recording in a world where musicianship and audio quality have often been sacrificed for convenience. E.S.E. is live in the studio recordings with no headphones or overdubs. A combination of direct and room mic placements contribute to the Extended Sound Environment (E.S.E.) recording technique enhancing the listening experience. You may experience sonic imperfections that are faced while recording in this style. Blue Coast believes the benefit of passionate performances outweigh the challenges of obtaining perfection. The performers were chosen for their live performance abilities. The album features classic songs by Bob Marley, James Taylor, Warren Zevon and Kansas along with compositions by the performers. All songs were originally recorded to 2" analog tape and mixed down to Direct Stream Digital (DSD) at 2.8MHz using the Sonoma System with Meitner Converters. Vintage microphones were used by DPA/B&K, Didrik DeGeer and Neumann; extraordinary preamps by Millennia Media, Manley and Neve; and cables made in house to Blue Coast's specifications. The Hybrid Super Audio CD (SACD) format was chosen because of its optimum frequency response, which improves both the Stereo DSD and the Redbook CD layers of this disc. Both layers have the full dynamic range of the original mixes and were mastered in Blue Coast's own studios.
