    Please if you have listen to this SACD I would love to hear how you thought it sounded. Thinking of purchasing it. SACD does wonders for stringed instruments. They sound wonderfully realistic and this album seems like it may be another amazing title.

    I agree great sonics. Sony worked closely with Rounder on setting up stuff from what I read and had 32 mikes used to record the concert. First all DSD live non-classical recording.

    Love the music, love the sound. A must-have SACD if there ever was one.

    Ran across this thread and based on all the high praise decided to pick the CD up. Amazingly, the local BB had the CD in stock.

    You were all spot on concerning your reviews. A wonderfull album, made that much better by being on SACD!

    But damn, $25 for a hybrid (my first by the way)!!

    You are right Doug, so I guess that takes the bite off a bit, of course my Led Zepllin 3 disk non SACD set cost less then that...

    But that just brings up another thing. This is the first two disk CD where both cd's rest on the same spindle thingie. What's up with that?

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of that kind of holder. It's started to show up in some DVD packaging as well. [​IMG]

    I'd just like to say that if it ever becomes medically possible, I want to have Alison's babies :b

    Can you tell I just got this disc today? [​IMG]
