We’re pleased to report that 26 Herb Alpert albums are available for download in high-resolution from both HDTracks and Acoustic Sounds. The Tidal streaming service also has CD-definition lossless FLAC downloads available as well from their store.
We have posted a simple guide to explain what high-resolution audio is, and for a future set of posts we will be explaining various means of playing these files, whether it be through a portable device, a network media player, or computer hardware and software.
While the meticulously mastered vinyl is probably the closest version to the studio tapes you’ll hear, the high-res digital comes awfully close. This is a chance to own studio-quality releases of these classic albums. If and when other online stores offer high-res downloads, we will let you know here first. For the very latest, you may want to check out our forum thread about the downloads.
