Album Notes
Plays and sounds amazing on any CD player. Remastered as DXD and on CD now at MQA folded 16/352.8kHz for anyone setup to decode MQA hi-res. You can download FLAC here and burn your own disc.

A gem of a live studio session recording featuring some of the finest musicians in folk, americana, roots and bluegrass styles. Recorded and mixed as native DSD to capture the ambient characteristics of the room and performance and present a live natural sounding reproduction to listeners. Singer-songwriter David Elias tells you stories that will be carried into your imagination and beyond with articulate musical expression you don't usually get to hear in popular music.

Captured to DSD as live studio at slipperworld.net in La Honda, California these musicians were after the best performance and recording for high fidelity they could summon. Recognized from Amsterdam to LA to Tokyo for its sonics, songwriting and performance, "Crossing" has been remastered from its SACD masters for CD release with MQA. Plays on any CD player with superb sound quality.

David Elias went online with his original independent acoustic music with the Internet in 1995. He's been creating magically soulful heartfelt acoustic tracks ever since. Blessed with friendships of some of the most gifted musicians on the planet exhibiting all genres and influences since popular music hit vinyl you will hear live studio interpretations of songs with lyrical images that send you spinning into the outer realms of imagination and real story.

Hi-res is a finishing touch that allows these stellar performances to be presented to the listener exactly as if they were there in the studio. You know when it's real. This will take you there.

Just Fabulous
The more I listen to the CROSSING Remastered MQA CD the more I’m impressed with it, just fabulous , I’m doing a fill in this afternoon for 3 hours of Country Rock and Bluegrass and will be featuring CROSSING MQA

I Was Really Blown Away!
First let me say you are one very talented musician. Aside from the excellent recording quality Crossing was an outstanding just thoroughly enjoyable listening experience. I love the soulful way you play the guitar and your lyrics are incredibly powerful.

The unique thing is that there wasn't one song I didn't enjoy as much as the other. That's never happened to me before. I've always had 2 or 3 songs I like as opposed to everything else on the recordings I bought or listened to. I was really blown away! Every track had its own unique journey.

I use the word journey because that's what it felt like. Each track seemed to take you on a journey ultimately yielding to an experience of its very own. The lyrics expressed through the music combined left me in a place of awe. Seriously each taking hold of me leading on to a fulfilling emotional experience. Each unique and distinct from the other but always creating a hunger for more.

I got to tell you I've been an audiophile for 40 years (I'm 65). Never have I enjoyed nor experienced from music what you were able to do and communicate through your heartfelt expressions.Well done! Congratulations.

Revelation Time
David, revelation time -- again. Sound quality of the CDBaby stream is phenomenal. I've enjoyed this album in other formats and this one seems even more alive sounding. "Morning Light/Western Town" is a knockout. You are there, front and center, clear and deep bass notes rolling across the room, John Havard's guitar just rips into us from stage left. Renewed by remaster. Thanks for putting this out.
