    Whoo-hoo! I will definitely be picking up the following:

    * All the R.E.M. titles
    * Sinatra Live at the Sands
    * Steely Dan Everything Must Go
    * The Cars The Cars
    * Fleetwood Mac Tusk
    * Donald Fagen Kamakiriad
    * Jackson Browne Running on Empty

    I have to see what's on those Chicago albums. Anyway, that's a great list! Add to that The Beach Boys Pet Sounds (Capitol), and things are looking up for DVD-Audio!

    It is great to see some more REM coming to DVD-A. They may end up being the first artist with their entire catalog on DVD-A if Capital decides to put out some more discs as well. It looks like Warner may finally be opening their vaults a bit. All of the later dates in the year could mean that these discs will be dual sided Hybrids as well. We will have to wait and see, but this is definitely some encouraging news, especially when it comes to getting out more music that appeals to people under 40 years old.

    I like most of these titles. Kamakiriad is a great album. one of my favorites along with the Cars first.

    Good to see some more title support. [​IMG]

    Justin, good point. I forgot to mention in my earlier post that Warner is grabbing onto to R.E.M. for DVD-Audio releases like Sony has done with Miles Davis. That's not necessarily a bad thing. The music's good! Once the legal mess is worked out with one artist, I guess it's easier to go to town with their catalog, as opposed to releasing just one title. I'd like to see some more balance from Warner -- a title here or there from Madonna, Prince, Dire Straits, and Van Halen is needed -- but R.E.M. is a quality group.

    The list of upcoming titles is very impressive, but I am still waiting for Warner to announce Madonna Like A Virgin, Prince Purple Rain, Dire Straits Brothers in Arms, and Van Halen 1984 for release on DVD-Audio. Those titles would probably convince me to add a DVD-Audio player in my second stereo system.

    Is this true?

    Or did the former Iraqi info minister land a new gig with Warners. [​IMG]

    Man, I just hope they nail those dates. [​IMG]

    Thanks Keith.

    For me: The Cars, most of the REM stuff (especially Green), Flaming Lips and Tusk.

    I hope this isn't another announcement where we only see one or none of those titles, only to hear that they have been postponed.
