This is my first experience with a DSD re-mastered CD. As I was expecting to receive an SACD disc, I was less than thrilled and more than sceptical about what I did receive. I wasn't expecting much. I decided to try the disc anyways, and was quite surprised with what I heard. It's probably fair to say that while likely not equaling the sound of a true SACD disc, this DSD re-mastered CD sounds pretty good indeed. it really captures the spirit and energy of this great band. All the rough, and dare I say, ragged edges of the performance are played back really well. The enjoyment level listening to this music was through the roof.
DSD re-mastering seems to result in a more detailed, and at the same time, less trashy sound compared to a CD with conventional mastering. The inherent CD grain signature seems reduced quite a bit, for a smoother more natural sound. Considering the original master tapes are nearly 50 years old, it is quite interesting, if not amazing how pleasing the final sound is, as well as revealing the music so clearly and in such an enjoyable manner.
The other factor is that a true SACD disc will cost well over $40 or $50, not $16 as is the case here. As well, $16 for a disc with DSD re-mastering is quite low.
The bottom line is, if you must have a true SACD, check out the same company's catalog for that format. Otherwise, for a reasonable price, get this disc. I suspect most people will find the sound more satisfying than a standard CD. I know for certain I plan to get more DSD titles if the price is right.
With the release of the remastered super audio CDs (SACD) of the Stones ABCKO catalog (which includes all the early Decca/London material), there are now 2 different Between The Buttons releases available, the original UK version that was released on January 20, 1967 and the US version that was released on February 10, 1967. There are now 2 US versions, the original CD release (which is the same mix as the original vinyl release) and the remastered version, which has much better sound, although some reviewers are commenting that not all tracks have been mixed to the same quality level.
In addition, the UK and US versions include different tracks. The Stones designed the UK release, which did not include the just released single Let's Spend The Night Together and Ruby Tuesday. The American record execs removed Back Street Girl and Please Go Home to make room for the two single cuts. To clarify:
There are 3 Between The Buttons releases:
January 20, 1967 - U.K. Decca (remastered on SACD)
.....does not include Let's Spend The Night Together and Ruby Tuesday
February 10, 1967 - U.S. London (remastered on SACD)
.....does not include Back Street Girl and Please Go Home
February 10, 1967 - U.S. London (not remastered)
.....does not include Back Street Girl and Please Go Home
Back Street Girl and Please Go Home were released in the U.S. on the Flowers album on July 14, 1967. Let's Spend The Night Together and Ruby Tuesday were released on an album in the U.K. on Through The Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2) on September 12, 1969.
Note: ABCKO acquired the Stones' catalog when Allen Klein became their manager in the 70s.Read more ›
Each of the band members make some noteworthy contributions. Charlie Watts' drumming is extremely steady and quite creative particularly on songs like All Sold Out and My Obsession. Love Bill Wyman's fuzz bass on that tune and in other spots. Brian Jones flute tones to Ruby Tuesday as well as the guitar tones on Who's Been Sleeping Here stand strong. Keith Richards' voice is definitely more evident in the mix on harmony vocals. He even gets his first solo lead vocal cameo on the rollicking Something Happened To Me Yesterday. His organ contributions to She Smiled Sweetly are very distingusihable. As for Mick Jagger, his voice is in fine form throughout. Sometimes loud, other times soft, but certainly captivating.
Besides the band members, the songs are extremely well written. Its not just rhythm and blues. Its carefully crafted tunes with catchy hooks galore. A strong Beatles influence exists here plus some cabaret stylings on a couple of tunes.
Truthfully this is not as hyped as Beggars Banquet, Sticky Fingers, or Let It Bleed. However, quality-wise, Between The Buttons is on the level of these great discs with some special touches that make this recording unique.

A choice album from the early era. All the tracks have something to say and it seems more an album than other early works without being as lame and pretentious as "Satanic... Read morePublished on April 29 2013 by eeyoore
I played this album to death on lp when it came out in the 60's. I've always thought that it was a very underrated or perhaps unnoticed album by the Stones. Read morePublished on Oct. 20 2009 by M. Stevens
This one is my least favorite of the London catalogue. The songs are light-hearded and if you want to sample the early stones, this would be a bad start.Published on June 16 2009 by Dean Wirth
