    Sunday's Best Buy flier shows the Alison Krauss + Union Station 2-CD live set coming out tomorrow (Tuesday, November 5th), and it will be just $12.99! I am very impressed with Rounder Records. First, all of my Alison Krauss CDs and SACDs sound outstanding (especially the SACDs). Now they are making the Krauss live set available very cheap. Hopefully this set will sound great. I'll be picking it up tomorrow. Who's with me? [​IMG]

    Evan, it is coming out on SACD, but a release date has not been announced yet. I also don't know what the SACD will sell for. For $12.99, I plan on getting the CD set tomorrow. I can always listen to the CDs in the car and office and keep the SACDs at home.

    Keith - How long do Best Buy's sales last? They also have the new Johnny Cash. Gotta have the latest from the Man in Black.[​IMG]

    James, as far as I know, all sale prices are good until this Saturday (11/9). A flier with new specials will be out in next Sunday's papers.

    I just stopped by my local Wal-Mart, The clerks had not yet unpacked the Alison Krauss two-CD live set,
    They found it in the boxes for me.
    The sticker price was $14.88 I told them BB had it at $12.99
    and K-Mart was $10.99
    They asked for an ad that I did not have.
    I just asked them to scan the price and let's see what it
    is. They did and it was priced $10.84 ! on their system.[​IMG]
    Not bad, Now if I buy the SACD it's not a huge loss.
    I have not yet played the disc, I'm sure it will be great.[​IMG]

    I can't believe it! I had no idea this was coming out! I just saw AK&US earlier this year as part of the "Down From the Mountain" tour. I am a big fan of these guys! I am so on this![​IMG]
    I just went to Bestbuy.com and heard some song samples. A note says something about this being a dual SACD, playable on both regular and SACD players. Some of you who are talking about this in this thread might want to check this out.

    Today's release is only the RED-BOOK CD.
    The Video DVD of this two disc release is due out
    in early 2003.
    SACD yet to be announced.

    I picked up the Alison Krauss live set at K-Mart for $10.99. The sound quality is exactly what I have come to expect from Alison Krauss and Rounder. Kudos to both! [​IMG] [​IMG] It's amazing that a two-CD set with such great music and great sound quality can be just $10.99. Wow.

    There was an article in the October issue of Sound & Vision on this CD, and specifically the SACD that will be released. There was no mention of a release date for the SACD, though.

    Marty, I saw that article awhile back, and it was very well done. I will definitely pick up the SACD. For now, the CD is very satisfying.
