Background for this item -
About Sheffield Lab: The brainchild of musician, Lincoln Mayorga and engineer, Doug Sax, the award-winning natural sound of Sheffield Lab has been recognized throughout the world as the reference standard for musical and sonic excellence. Sheffield is the label that single-handedly brought audiophile recordings to high profile status with the astonishingly realistic quality of its direct-to-disc recordings.

It has been decades since Sheffield made “I've Got the Music In Me.” The original direct to disc release was out of  print for over 15 years. The CD release, made from the live to two-track masters, has also been out of print due to lost or damaged umatic digital tapes. The analog two-track masters have also become unplayable. Sheffield Lab recently discovered a perfect umatic tape that allowed them to offer this album again. Certainly this recording deserves the archival abilities of Gold. The instant acceptance of “I've Got the Music In Me” should have resulted in Sheffield following-up this exciting recording with another of similar energy, but Sheffield, at Doug Sax's urging, put their efforts into more purist audiophile fare. In retrospect, that was the worst decision Sax ever made. The unbridled energy and enthusiasm that they achieved in the unforgiving format of direct to disc recording is so much more important than the nth degree of sonic purity.
