Don't forget though, that this December was rumored as the date Warner was going to go DVD-A/CD flippers for its releases. I would rather get the benefit of the additional CD layer from waiting a few more months.
That being said, release dates when it comes to Hi-res are becoming quite frustrating, and I take everyone with a grain of salt (Universal is usually good though). Warner makes me scratch my head all the time when it comes to product scheduling. Of course they are also on the selling block, so that could have an impact as well.
I don't have money to buy all these titles at once - so I can wait!
But if it has anything to do with the flipper sistuation, I can live with it...
I have heard of a format called "Cee Dee" that has several titles to choose from. I think I will try some of those while we wait for dvd-audio to get it's act together.
Some cee dees I want to get:
Nightmares On Wax Smoker's Delight
King Crimson In The Court Of The Crimson King
Beatles The white album
Eighteenth Street Lounge compilation Dubbed Out In DC (features several full tracks using RealAudio stream)
Lance - I just bought "In The Court............" a few weeks back and the recording is atrocious. I heard this title might be coming out in SACD or DVD-A so I would probably wait.
The alleged In the Court... SACD was announced ages ago and nothing happened with it. I wouldn't hold my breath for it.
The latest remastered CD sounds pretty good.
Is that flipper thing really happening? They haven't actually decided to do that yet, right?
The King Crimson SACD is supposed to come out this month...if it's not delayed again for the ump-teenth time. On the album's recording quality, remember, it was recorded in 1968.
Al, I sympathize! I had two copies of it on vinyl, one unopened, and sold them both, along with the only copy of IN THE WAKE OF POSIDON that I had. I now regret selling them. The CD's I have of both definitely sound like mp3 compared to the vinyl. I have IN THE COURT OF on preorder from Music Direct and I'm crossing my fingers and toes too. If the SACD never does materialize, I'm gonna watch for it to possibly come around on heavy vinyl...
Al/Rachael: do you have the new remastered CD?
Dunno - I'll have to look when I get home.
