The label's website states that the SHM-CD format that this new release is presented, SHM-CD means "Super High Material CD), is a superior high definition format that "utilizes a polycarbonate material originally developed for LCD screens, and the enhanced transparency of the SHM-CD results in more clarity, depth and definition of sound, bringing the listener ever closer to the music of the original." Unfortnately, this added layer doesn't add anything to the audio experience at all. This is due to the fact that the source material are inferior copies of the recordings and not masters and certainly not remastered into true HD. You would be much better off purchasing the more recent "Smilin' Through" collection that while not on a fancy "SHM" disc it still sounds vastly superior.
