BMG Japan did a fabulous job with the 7 Taeko Onuki CD reissues in 2008. The sound quality of these disks is among the best of any CDs I have purchased in the past 20 year. Though these releases are not Bluespec or SHM, in my opinion the sound quality is basically just as strong. Really, these days quality of sound from an audio releases has more to do with the quality of original source tapes and how they has been mastered than with the format of CD. Of the Taeko Onuki reissues, ?Kaie? probably sounds the best. The album plays much like a film soundtrack. It finds Onuki in top form and at her most sentimental. For the past 4 years she had been attempting to cultivate a ?Romantic? atmosphere; These attempts culminate with ?Kaie.? Onuki has a knack for strong melodies, but they might not grab the listener until a 3rd or 4th spin. That said, like many fine taste, those that are acquired over some time often become one?s favorite. This album does include sever songs from Onuki?s previous albums, but they have been rerecorded with new arrangements and a new sound. I highly recommend this CD, though note it did come in a jewel case rather than a cardboard sleeve.
