John, no, it is not an SACD. Sony Music recently remastered some AC/DC albums on CDs. These are standard CDs (in digipaks). That's all.

Back in Black isn't available on SACD.

Like 99.9% of the population, that salesperson has no idea what SACD is.

Definitely return it.

...what about those new police discs...
The recent Police catalog remasters (25th Anniversary editions) are sold in separate formats on this side of the Atlantic.

Regular redbook CD's in digipaks and non-hybrid SACD only in the SACD jewel cases.

However, you can order hybrid SACD's from the UK as that's how they are sold there for some unknown reason.

John, Joel is right. Standard remastered CDs are in digipaks, while single-layer SACDs are in Super Jewel Boxes. There is one exception. Every Breath You Take: The Classics is a hybrid disc in a digipak. It was a single-inventory release, meaning that the hybrid disc replaced the old CD.
