Day Three, Take 1 is a new double album from Singer, Songwriter and Acoustic Guitarist David Elias and his band known as The Casual Tees. It is his 6th DSD release at NativeDSD Music from the Sketti Sandwich label.

The album is a Pure DSD release – recorded with the Sony Sonoma DSD Workstation using DSD Analog to Digital Converters from Ed Meitner’s EMM Labs. It is a Live, Unedited Performance from April 20, 2007 at the San Gregorio General Store in San Gregorio, California. Featuring 19 songs and over 2 hours of DSD music!

David Elias took a minute from his home in Hawaii to share a bit more about this new DSD album: “I refer to this collection as Audio Verite’ having absorbed a little Cinema Verite in another life. What I mean here is that what you get with this recording is nothing less than the most honest way a recording can be made. A ton of work was done setting up the band, all the mics feeding preamps, then Ed Meitner’s EMM Labs DSD ADCs and a 24-channel mixer in the back storage room (“the cooler”) on the other side of the San Gregorio General Store off Hwy 1 in Northern California just south of San Francisco.

When all was said and done and the band stopped talking to themselves, they launched into each of these 19 songs, many of which had not appeared on any prior album. The crowd was local and the act was repeated 3 consecutive nights. This is the recording from the entire final 3rd night performance. John Nowland mixed 22-tracks to stereo analog during each take. His 2-channel stereo was then printed directly to the last 2 DSD tracks available on the Sonoma that Gus Skinas also recorded the entire band with.

So this album comes directly out of the Sonoma tracks 23 (left) and 24 (right) (i.e., Nowland’s stereo mix) with no edits or changes whatsoever. The DSD tracks are 100% native DSD without compression or effects added when I mastered them as stereo DSF from the source DFF.

Yours to listen to and enjoy. My great pleasure to have been part of this congregation of Casual Tees. Much Aloha.”
