Based on recommendations here and on Audio Asylum, I picked up the Alison Krauss Now That I've Found You: A Collection hybrid SACD last weekend. Those of you who recommended this disc were oh so right. This is one outstanding album, and the SACD layer sounds wonderful. I picked up the Krauss Forget About It hybrid SACD a couple of weeks ago and thought it was a bit of a downer, but Now That I've Found You: A Collection is a must-have. I bought it strictly on recommendations, so I didn't look over the playlist in the store. The Beatles' "I Will" was a pleasant surprise when I fired up the disc. If you can find this disc, get it. Not only is the music great, but the recording is reference-quality, in my opinion. If you live in and around New Jersey, look for this disc at a Compact Disc World store. I picked it up at the new store in Bridgewater last weekend for only $13.99. It was regularly $15.99, but Compact Disc World had a $2 off sale that I believe is over. Of course, if the sale is over, $15.99 is still a great price for a hybrid disc from a smaller label. The thing of it is, the disc was marked $17.99, but scanned at $15.99 and then $13.99 with the sale. I have yet to listen to the CD layer, but it should make for an interesting comparison. I know that Rounder Records has a good reputation for recording quality, so I expect the CD layer to sound quite good. It's recordings like these that spoil me. Right after playing the Krauss SACD layer, I put in the Soul Asylum Black Gold: The Best of Soul Asylum CD. The sound quality of this CD is very poor in comparison to the Krauss SACD. It's typical of modern pop and rock recordings in that it is compressed. Why can't all recordings sound as good as the Krauss discs? I know I am comparing apples and oranges in comparing the Krauss and Soul Asylum discs, but that is the point. Why must there be apples and oranges in music?
