Great songs: That's what you've come to expect from Livingston Taylor. On his latest, Ink, the winsome singer-songwriter delights by paying homage to pop songwriting with a collection of richly-realized interpretations, including Don Henley's "The End of the Innocence," and Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street." Drawing inspiration from pop's different eras, LIV brings new life to diverse material, from the brilliant standard "The More I See You," to the Jackson 5's hit "Never Can Say Goodbye," to the great Ray Charles' "Hallelujah, I Love Her So." Add in a few of Liv's beguiling new originals, like the reflective and celebratory "Our Turn to Dance," and Ink reveals itself as a document of a man who knows what makes a song a memorable and moving experience.

I did not purchase this album here but instead downloaded a much higher resolution version that surpasses CD quality to a large degree. CD quality is 16bit 48kHz. After all it is a technology that is over 20 years old. Recording studios now record at a minimum of 24bit 176kHz but the old CD does not handle that. The sound gets watered down in the process of transferring the music over to the CD. Super Audio CD or SACD does accommodate the higher sound quality of today's recordings but the SACD for this album is hard to come by. Now thanks to improved methods to move sound from a computer to your speakers using the latest DAC technology, the average person, for a reasonable cost, can download the better quality recording and you certainly can hear the difference. Enough of the soapbox.
The bottom line is the HD version of this album is superb and really shows Livingston's work in the best light and that light shines very brightly in any format you decide to purchase this album.
As for the sonics, this is one of Chesky's best-sounding discs. Just listen to the whistle(s) on "Isn't She Lovely" -- excellent detail and realism. The multi-channel mix is not overly-agressive. The rears are used just for ambience. The vocals come from the front L and R speakers. There is very little center activity on this disc.
Like most Chesky and Telarc discs, the volume does need to be cranked up a bit. Since the material is so good, you won't mind. -- emilsjr, SA-CD.net
