Paul: you might want to have a title you're interested in scanned by an employee to make sure the price is correct. Thats because early last year (or late 2005? can't remember now) I noticed some DTS-CDs and dvd-a discs were outrageously priced. Like a Doors L.A. Woman
for $22 and a Moody Blues DTS-CD for $20, and a Lyle Lovett DTS-CD for $26!! I asked an employee who turned out to be the media manager about this & she checked them herself. IIRC the computer said fifteen
dollars for the Doors and sixteen
for the Moodys. The Lovett disc was still twenty six for some reason though.
BTW speaking of the Moodys: today I received a Best Buy gift card and tonight went and bought the Moody Blues Days Of Future Passed
on DTS-CD. I haven't played it yet but am really looking forward to this disc and especially the music, which I've heard about for years. I actually have owned several other MB albums for several years and their EXCELLENT "mix" compilation double album This Is The Moody Blues
* since the mid 80s in CD and vinyl form. But by the late 80s was getting a bit burned out on prog rock and sort of lost interest (was getting into more alternative and punk rock at that time). But I've been getting into other prog-ish groups lately, particuularly stuff from the 60s (does the Jefferson Airplane count?)& am listening to MB more often now, though sadly can't seem to get back into Yes and Rush for some reason.
King Crimson's In the Court Of The Crimson King
is on my "buy soon" list.
FYI: I found this DTS-CD in the large case dvd-a titles usually use and another one in a regular CD jewel case which has been appearing more often. I bought the CD-style version since it fits into a normal rack. Both were mixed in with the regular MB CDs.
The rest of the gift card went to John Coltrane's A Love Supreme
. I heard one of the cuts on a listener-supported station
here late one night a couple months ago and loved it, the track being "Part 4 - Psalm". And it didn't seem to be that type of jazz that seemed like the musicians were only trying to impress each other with their playing skills, rather than making good music.
* this isn't just a collection of songs thrown together - instead for many tracks the band put together intertrack parts that caused one song to smoothly segue(?) into another & some tracks were actually remixed slightly to make them "flow" better when the album was listened to as a whole. If I didn't know better, I would have thought this 2 disc set was made from the beginning as a regular album.
