This album was remastered by Steve Hoffman, and, as usual, he gave it a "personal touch", something he really should not be doing. It is his job to recreate the original album with the best possible sound. Unfortunately he did not succeed there either.For that you'll need the 20P2-2429.
Spot on my friend, spot on.... extra words extra words

If you are implying that the crossfades are not on this version, I say GOOD RIDDANCE! Hoffman used the 1st generation mix down tapes for each song, rather than using the production master. Hence, much better sound quality
Steve Hoffman remastered this CD from the original master tapes and the result is stunning if also stunningly frustrating for many fans; the album has better detail and a terrific, wide dynamic range BUT the original album had all the tracks with running into each other with minimal gaps. Hoffman's version of the album, however, doesn't. The songs fade out and have the gaps you would traditionally expect between the tracks. Three additional problems have cropped up one with the HDCD encoding. Evidently the HDCD encoding is flawed--with the CD shifting out of HDCD mode unexpectedly as the volume goes down on a track. That won't be a problem IF you don't have an HDCD player. The next issue is that if you rip this CD to your iPod (perhaps due to the encoding error)the tracks are missing small sections of the music. I haven't ripped my edition to my iPod yet but others have and have had problems. The final problem is a simple one that Audio Fidelity immediately addressed; evidently the CDs were shipped without the lyrics (the original album had the lyrics on the sleeve that held the vinyl record). There have also been some complaints that the scan of the artwork is a bit shoddy but I that wasn't an issue on my copy. Audio Fidelity will be shipping out a lyric booklet to those who purchsed this CD just contact them at their website or call them.
My copy does have the HDCD encoding going in and out. I never noticed until I seen your review. Thanks for the info.
You know why the audio quality is better on this re-issue? Because Hoffman used the original individual song masters instead of the Production master which is how the original issue was mastered.
This version of the album NOT having crossfades is my only reason to buy it. I only wish the AF Stevie Wonder re-issues got rid of the crossfades.
