D. Allen explained the difference well, I just want to add some info to help you get to the better mastered version which is worth every penny. The same reviews seem to be under both the CD and the SACD including D. Allen's but I'm sure he is only referring to the regular CD. I'll try to post pictures of the back of both so everyone can tell the difference, but the SACD says "Mastered for SACD by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman at AcousTech Mastering, Camarillo, California. The regular CD was remastered in 1998 by Rudy Van Gelder. The ASIN for the regular CD is B00000I41G and for the SACD it is B003UUFH5A.
And Thank you, D. Allen, for your review.
Unfortunately, this is a terrible vinyl pressing. There is a rhythmic crackle in the right channel during the first couple minutes of "Chitlins Con Carne," my favorite track here. I've gone though two copies and both have the issue. The quality control at United Record Pressing is lousy. If records aren't noisy and/or warped, they're scuffed or scratched by the obviously rough handling at the plant. Their Impulse reissues are also very suspect.
It's a tough situation because the rest of the record does sound great. And because Midnight Blue is musically spartan, you want a very clean record. At this point I may try to find a good used copy.
