James - you're right, The Nightfly is a little bass-shy. You've got to hear Elliot Scheiner's new DVD-A remix of it. They've got it right now!

Also - the first commercially successful all digital recording I can remember was Stevie Wonder's Hotter Than July; from 1980.

It's a little strident in the top end, but many of the transients are not compressed at all by today's standards and it has a real bounce about it. It probably sounded much smoother on vinyl but on CD as I have it, it's good but you can hear the effect of those early A/Ds.
