While this album from the good folks at In-Akustik is, ostensibly, a covers album (though it does feature Sophie B. Hawkins performing an acoustic version of her hit "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover"), Great Cover Versions' true purpose lies not in the faithfulness of its artists to the source material, but in the fidelity of the recordings. Utilizing high-definition RESO mastering and pressed on a special polycarbonate plastic that improves light transmission, the album serves as audiophile reference material. With each track meticulously recorded to impeccably reproduce the studio sound, audio enthusiasts will be able to put their systems to the test.
