    ABKCO has ended speculation about European support of Super Audio by telling how a limited edition run of Stones discs was created in order to bridge the gap between demand and hybrid production capacity...

    Well thats good news for hi-rez fans, but it does nothing to clear the fog when you walk into a record store to make a purchase.

    USA buyers were buying hybrids but there was no labelling on the disc package to tell you that. Ofcourse, we all knew what was what, because we are all faithful HTF geeks.

    And I suppose Euro buyers, who hoped they were buying hybrids were getting redbook only, again without any indication otherwise?

    Hopefully someone, somewhere, will see the light, and abandon the idea of stealth marketing. That reaches right up there with "New" Coke, as one of the most boneheaded ways to sell product I can think of.

    Lee, the song "96 Tears." I guess you have to be a genuine old fart who grew up in the 60s to know that stuff.[​IMG]

    Sorry, I missed that one. I was born in 1964, the Year of the Dragon.

    Would love to hear it though...

    Phil,

    Those are 1990's rerecordings. Allen Klein has refused to release or license Question Mark's Cameo recordings because he would have to pay a buttload of past royalties.
