    I was wondering if anyone picked up the new Jayhawks disc this past Tuesday?

    I haven't read any reviews and I was wondering if anyone on the forum with a copy could post some of his/her thoughts.

    Thanks.

    Not yet Scott, but I probably will this weekend. Rolling Stone gives it a very favorable review, and a couple of fans have also posted positive reviews on the same site...one fan states it's their best yet!!![​IMG] A great band.

    Is "Rainy Day Music" still coming out on SACD? It seems to have disappeared from Universal's "coming soon" page. [​IMG]

    The only key member to bail out after 'Green Grass' was Mark Olson, which if I remember correctly was because he wanted to spend more time with his wife, who was/is ill.
    While the Jayhawks are not the same band as they were with Olson, they are still strong with Gary Louris as the lead vocalist. The albums since Olson left are basically more rockin' and less country-influenced.
    I'm curious about the SACD as well. I figured I would wait a couple of weeks and see if it arrives, and if not just buy the CD.
    I hate to bring this up so often about SACD, but day and date releases of new music is important. If a disc is coming out on high-rez, then get it out. I have been waiting for this album for awhile and I will give the (possible) SACD a little more time, but if I buy the CD, the chances of me re-buying the SACD are slim. These open-ended release dates are not helping the format at all.

    Regards

    Evan, I can wait for some releases to come out on SACD, but a band like the Jayhawks I'm having a hard time. It would just be nice if the labels would tell us what the date is going to be. If it is a month, I will wait. If it is six months, I'll just buy the CD version.
    I think with a band like this, who probably don't sell a ton of records,never mind SACDs, it is not a priority with Universal.
    By the way I was a huge Whalers fan back in the day of Mike Liut and Ulf Samuelson(sp)[​IMG] .

    Regards
    KrisM
