Otis Taylor — Hey Joe


PS Audio's Octave Records accounces the release of Hey Joe Opus/Red Meat by Otis Taylor. This is Otis Taylor’s 14th album, originally released as a CD (and vinyl) on his Trance Blues Festival label and now for the first time available in pure full high-def DSD direct from the master recording. Joined by former Allman Brother’s guitarist, Warren Haynes, String Cheese Incident’s Bill Nershi, singer-songwriter and guitarist Langhorne Slim, Rose Hill Drive guitarist Daniel Sproul, and jazz trumpeter and longtime collaborator Ron Miles, Otis has created a psychedelic suite of 10 continuous songs threaded with urging motifs, dynamic textures, and hypnotic passages interplaying with Otis’ signature lyrics and vocal style.

Recorded exclusively on the Sonoma DSD Multitrack recording system and remastered by Gus Skinas for this limited direct-to-master SACD release, this single-pressing includes an Austrian gold-pressed dual-layer SACD with both the original master DSD as well as a special high-definition CD layer, playable on any CD, SACD, or DVD player. Tracks 11-20 on the SACD layer are an exclusive vinyl needle drop to DSD from the original 45 RPM DMM (Direct Metal Master) release from in-akustik GmbH. Only 1,300 SACDs will be released for collectors.
