OK in my fruitless search for Holly Cole I did find and order:

Jimmy Cobb Quartet - Cobb's Corner in SACD MC
Buddy Guy - DJ Play MY Blues in SACD MC
A Krauss - Now That I've Found You and Forget About It in SACD Stereo
Ray Charles - Ray Sings Basie Sings in SACD MC

Can't wait for next weekend.

Just got Bryan Ferry's Boys and Girls today from Amazon for a great price. Interestingly, the SACD case (the newer types, with rounded corners) had a huge crack in it and so amazon sent an extra jewel case with it, which of course, is a standard type case that cannot fit the SACD jewel case liner notes, etc. But sounds great so far.

Porcupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet on DVD-A on the way. This was impressive in the 5.1 DTS issue released in the spring, and knowing PT and Steve Wilson this should be a real treat!

something I hadn't seen before from Rounder Records (producer of Alison Krauss SACDs).

And from Rounder here.

Steely Dan--Gaucho (DVD-A) (8$ cheaper than the original DTS 5.1 LOSSY disc on the shelf next to it)
Eric Clapton--Slowhand (SACD)
Weather Report--Heavy Weather (SACD) (ticketed at 14.99$--much cheaper than I've seen it anywhere; rang up at the cash for 9.99$ )

Each of these was at my local Best Buy, shockingly enough, and in a separate SACD/DVD-A section (as it should be) that was, dare I say, well stocked with pop/rock titles. Some were outrageously expensive, but still--they were there.

SACD sales must be a territorial thing. When I ask my BB or CC for SACD's, I get a blank stare. One kid told me "all CD's are audio". I hate to buy online, I like to have it in my hands. Dont know what to do.

I didn't used to like buying things online either, but I've found the selection and price advantage for things like hi-res audio and some books and DVDs to make it worth overcoming my initial reluctance. The reality is if one wants to acquire a good library of hi-res audio, the bulk will be found online.

Latest SACD purchases:

Jeff Beck: Blow by Blow - excellent music, excellent use of surround
Dave Brubeck: Time Out - a timeless classic, pretty good surround
Elton John: Elton John - disappointing when compared to Tumbleweed or Capt. Fantastic

Latest DVD-A purchases:

Grateful Dead: American Beauty (dualdisc) - I'm not that much of a Dead fan, but this is an excellent record and the surround mix is top notch.
Neil Young: American Stars 'n Bars (stereo only) - A bit disappointing when compared to On the Beach
Steely Dan: Gaucho - Top quality surround mix


On order:
Jorma Kaukonen: Blue Country

I think I've got over 50 hi-rez discs in my collection now. I just wish the format wasn't in its death throes.

I don't think the format is on its "death thrones"....over 500 news releases so far this year and total # of titles may reach 5,000 by year's end. Japan Sony just announced 10 new Leonard Bernstein SACD reissue titles.

My recent SACD purchases....

Honkytonkville - George Strait
Peachtree Road - Elton John
A Crow Left of the Murder - Incubus
Ti Adoro - Luciano Pavarotti
Everybody's In Showbiz - The Kinks

Just picked up "If I could Only Remember my Name" by David Crosby on DVD-A & The Animals Retrospective on SACD at my local Borders. Surprised to find both on the shelves. A 30% off coupon made the David Crosby DVD-A price palatable.

On "The Animals" I'm mildly worried if it is in fact the SACD as it's an Abkco which are notorious for not marking 'em. The Borders label has it marked hybrid, but...Anyone know if the SACD comes in a jewel case? Or is it the typical Abkco digipack & thus I got a second copy of the CD by mistake? I'd like to figure it out prior to opening it so I can return it if it's just the CD, but I'm afraid the only way to tell may be to open it. Thanks for any tips...

FWIW, this past week I noticed my local Best Buy had replenished some SACD items. Unfortunately all stuff I had, but it was encouraging to see they were still getting a new item here or there in. Unfortunately they're now all mixed in with the regular CDs making it a chore to find anything, but...it's slightly better than nothing at least & there's some thrill to the treasure hunt nature of the search if/when you make a find.

The SACD will come in a digipak. It's clearly labelled as a SACD on the back with the logo of SACD. If your disc is in a jewel case, then it's just a regular CD.

Thanks for the confirmation. Guess I'll be returning it...

Just revisited an old thread on Abkco SACDs which also confirmed they were all digipacks. I should have known better, but was too excited at the find & decided to trust the Borders CD/SACD label. I had forgotten Abkco, in their infinite wisdom, did not change the bar codes on the CD reissues meaning stores had no way to diffentiate. D'oh!

Just listened to Forget About It in SACD and compared it to redbook cd. The difference is not subtle. Especially her voice - it sounds so much more like she is in the room. It hurt to pay 30.00 especially since I've already paid 12 for the cd. But now that I've heard it I'm very happy.
JANYA-If you can handle another album by the Dead get Workingmans. I think it sounds even better than American Beauty.

I saw this Alison Krauss (Foregt About It) recently for $19.99 and passed.

Kicking myself now, hope it's still in the store so I can grab it.

Did finally find a copy of her 2 SACD Live recording. Expensive. Hopefully it'll be worth it.

Just ordered Talking Heads "Naked" DVD-A and Propaganda (A Secret Wish" SACD from Amazon UK.

Sorry, didn't notice this before now. Yes, I'm still enjoying my AW15 (even more now that I've hooked it up to an HD PVR). I just added Weather Report's Mysterious Traveller (SACD MCH) to my collection (well, it's in the mail). Looking forward to it.
