    Man, this would be superb news.....with the exception of The Wall, I can't think of a title I wanted more on hi-rez 5.1.

    I just pray that James Guthrie and Jack Douglas are on board...the work they did with TITA was astounding!

    This is great news!! Toys In The Attic is one of my favorite hi-res surround sound titles, the sound and use of the other speakers is great - always gets noticed when I have folks over. Can't wait for Rocks to be released.

    It is one of their better albums, but after this I'd wish Sony would move on to other releases. Since they do so few, Aerosmith has had their share and more already.

    I'll believe it when I see it. This has been rumored for years. Since the very beginning of SACD.

    I have to agree with you there, John. I got my uni player in Oct. of '02, and Rocks was listed as TBA at Circuit City way back then. I would not have expected TBA meant two years down the road!

    I wonder where Lee Scoggins is....he is mister SACD[​IMG], and this is an SACD thread. I am thinking he has been abducted by aliens or he would have posted by now.

    Will this be an SACD/CD hybrid? I don't buy Toys In The Attic because it wasn't. [​IMG]

    I guess thats an unknown, John. In fact, nothing in the announcement said it would be 5.1 either. But it damn well better be[​IMG]

    FWIW, I have the latest Redbook remaster of TITA, and I did an informal, un-scientific comparo with the 2CH SACD track. FWIW, I really did not hear much of a difference at all.

    The sonics on the Redbook are not that great, and the SACD sounded very, very similar to my ears. I even have an original vinyl LP, and via a decent TT (Rega P2) it sounded about the same too, as far as the frequency balance. If TITA were only a 2CH SACD, I would have been very disappointed.

    But the 5.1 mix.....now thats a horse of a different color. definitely worth the price of admission for me.

    Side note: Last week at my local Best Buy, I cruised by the hi-rez section, and a fellow had TITA in his hands. I looked over and said that is a killer disc. I mentioned that I have been a fan since the early 70's and the SACD in 5.1 made TITA sound fresh again. I asked if he had a full surround rig, and he looked at me kind of funny, like he had NFI that this was a 5.1 disc. Methinks he thought he was just buying a remastered CD. Oh well.

    Brian L: That’s a little disheartening. Unfortunately, I think your encounter is "The Rule", not "The Exception" when it comes to the general public and Hi-Res Audio.

    I'm also waiting for Get Your Wings!

    Yup: it's the surround sound mixes that will drive SACD and DVD-A growth. Not any better quality. Perceived or real.

    Well I hope it's true as it has one of my favorite Aerosmith songs that never got as much airplay as it should have IMO...

    Nobody's Fault

    Lord I must be dreamin'
    What else could this be
    Everybody's screamin'
    Running' for the sea

    Holy lands are sinkin'
    Birds take to the sky
    The prophets are all stinking drunk
    I know the reason why

    Eyes are full of desire
    Mind is so ill at ease
    Everything is on fire
    Shit piled up to the knees
    Out of rhyme or reason
    Everyone's to blame
    Children of the season
    Don't be lame

    Sorry, you're so sorry
    Don't be sorry
    Man has known it
    And now he's blown it
    Upside down and hell's the only sound
    We did an awful job
    And now they say it's nobody's fault

    Old St. Andres
    Seven years ago
    Shove it up their richters
    Red lines stop and go
    Noblemen of courage
    Listen with their ears
    Spoke but how discouragin'
    When no one really hears

    One of these day's you'll be sorry
    Too many houses on the stilt
    Three million years or just a story
    Four on the floor up to the hilt

    Out of rhyme or reason
    Everyone's to blame
    Children of the season
    Don't be lame

    Sorry, we're so sorry
    Don't be sorry
    Man has known it
    And now he's blown it
    Upside down and hell's the only sound
    We did an awful job
    And now we're just a little too late

    Eyes are full of desire
    Mind is so ill at ease
    Everything is on fire
    Shit piled up in debris

    California showtime
    Five o'clock's the news
    Everybody's concubine
    Was prone to take a snooze

    Sorry, we're so sorry
    Don't be sorry
    Man has known it
    And now he's blown it
    Upside down and hell's the only sound
    We did an awful job
    And now we're just a little too late

    Well Kevin, are you suggesting that it's nobody's fault that I don't own this vaporous release?[​IMG] I damn well believe I know who's fault! Somebody should get back in the saddle, eh?[​IMG]

    I think Amazon did the entry a while ago when the rumors first started surfacing. Unfortunately, the disc itself hasn't yet. [​IMG]

    Agreed! Easily my favorite track off Rocks and I've been listening to it for almost 30 years. Tough hookline and one of Joey Kramer's best beats. [​IMG]
