Note from Dutton
In response to the above review’s comment about the Colin Clout piece not being playable, Dutton Epoch would like to point out that this is not the case.
This is an SACD dual-layer release, and Colin Clout has been included as an additional extra on the SACD layer, hence it’s billing as an “SACD bonus track.” This also explains the disc’s almost 84-minute playing time: the maximum playing time of a standard PCM CD is 79m 57s (the Red Book standard) whereas an SACD’s is up to 110 minutes. The only way that Colin Clout could be included was to place it on the SACD layer, otherwise it would have had to be omitted – it simply wouldn’t have fitted on the standard PCM CD layer. Putting this disc in an SACD player – or any machine capable of playing SACDs – will allow the Colin Clout track to be heard.
