    Ordered the new DK disc on SA-CD, and will get the DVD-A when it's released.

    Skipped Tommy for the time being.

    I just ordered the new Diana Krall hybrid. It's my only SACD or DVD-A purchase this year so far.

    Lee,

    I highly recommend Michael McDonald's album. He's quite a natural fit for the material. In fact, what took him so long to do this? In some ways, the production was too polished - need to dump that drum machine. Otherwise, well recorded and well performed. Well worth the $14.99 I paid at Best Buy for it. Because this album was a big success (turning platinum earlier this year), a follow-up is in the works.

    What's your theory/rationale for doubling up on DK and EJ?

    All:

    I'm pleased with the sonic improvements of the Crowded House DVD-A over the CD.

    Paul,
    It's good fodder for discussion, and I like lining Universal's pockets for supporting both formats [​IMG]
    Seriously, I'm impatient, and I want the surround discs sooner rather than later -- so I buy the SA-CDs when they are out, and the DVD-As when they're out. It's not the best comparison material as most go through 24/96K PCM for mixing -- but they are for the most part well done. Since my system is clearly optimized for DVD-A, owning the DVD-As is a natural for me.
    Lee,
    I think the Michael McDonald disc is good, but not great. Maybe it'll grow on me after a few more listenings.
    I definitely like the work on GBYBR -- outstanding quality and a number of great tracks that aren't hits.
    Cheers,
    Cheers,

    My newest batch of hi-rez includes:
    Art Of Noise "Daft" (some rather trippy tunes, indeed).
    Alan Parsons "I Robot" (only listened once, but I've always liked this one).
    "Amadeus" soundtrack (would have been ideal for MC release, but it is truly great music).
    Side note: I've noticed the record companies are now releasing stuff like GBYBR in DVDA, but most people who wanted a hi-rez form of that album have already bought the SACD, which was released months ago. Am I wrong? It seems they're shooting their own feet [​IMG]

    Monk's genius was often in his simplicity. Sometimes when I hear a Monk tune I laugh because it's just so logical- why didn't anyone think of Epistrophy before? And as odd as his accompaniment style is, it pretty much forms the basis of a style which I've come to prefer, that chordal clanking sound as advanced by McCoy Tyner, incorporated by Hank Jones, and expanded upon by Chick Corea, though I'm currently growing my jazz piano playing collection in the other direction with Keith Jarrett (now his standards trio would make an awesome SACD!)

    Oh man, why hasn't my elusive disc shipment come in yet?

    Hey, Lee! I used to work part-time at the Village Gate. I think that's the most fun job I ever had!

    I got Godsmack's little acoustic album today and it's really hot sounding. I far prefer them with acoustic guitars. They'll proably never make another album like this...
