Hey Joe Opus/Red Meat is Otis Taylor’s 14th album, originally released as a CD (and vinyl) on his Trance Blues Festival label and now for the first time available in pure full high-def DSD direct from the master recording. Joined by Warren Haynes, Ron Miles, Langhorne Slim, violinist Anne Harris, among others, Otis has created a psychedelic suite of 10 continuous songs threaded with urging motifs, dynamic textures, and hypnotic passages interplaying with Otis’ signature lyrics and vocal style. Recorded exclusively on the Sonoma DSD Multitrack recording system and remastered by Gus Skinas for this limited direct-to-master SACD release, this single-pressing includes a hybrid stereo SACD with DSD Pure as well as a DSDDirect Mastered CD layer, playable in any CD transport. Tracks 11-20 on the SACD layer are an exclusive vinyl needle drop to DSD from the original 45 RPM DMM (Direct Metal Master) release from in-akustik GmbH. Only 1,300 SACDs will be released for collectors. Get yours before they’re gone. Ships worldwide.

Our mission at Octave Records® is simple – respect musicians by paying them fairly, and respect their music by bringing it to life in the highest-quality possible.
Too often, musicians have to absorb the costs of production, leaving them little or any earnings – or even putting them in debt. And the quality of their recordings end up in last place. We at PS Audio and Octave Records are dedicated to correcting these inequities.
To support musicians, Octave™ covers 100% of all studio, mixing, mastering, production, distribution, and marketing expenses so that artists may directly share in retail sales revenues – while retaining ownership of their music.
Octave Records is dedicated to offering the highest-quality recordings in high-resolution formats including pure DSD on SACD , as well as 192kHz PCM. Located in Boulder, Colorado, Octave utilizes the world’s finest studio equipment, based around the acclaimed Sonoma™ DSD recording, mixing, and mastering system. Gus Skinas, our world-renowned mastering engineer, has hundreds of album credits and helped design the Sonoma system.
