Donald Fagen on SHM in Japan January 21, 2009

Here's a link to an online store announcing the availability of The Nightfly and Kamakiriad as Japanese SHM discs. Branded "Limited Release" and with a release date of January 21 2009, the SHM discs are supposed to reflect the CD players laser thanks to the Super High Material pressing, and end up playing better than ordinary CD:s. Result: Better sound!

At least that's what we've been able to dechiper after visiting these two links discussing the pros and cons of SHM:

Link 2

We mentioned SHM December 2 when it was announced that Walter Becker's Circus Money was going to be released as a SHM CD in Japan December 17. Anyone ordered, heard and compared that to your average, ordinary CD yet?
