    Very good news. It is great to see BMG finally getting the Hi-res ball rolling here in the states. The titles and dates for the DVD-A are as follows according to MusicTap:

    Dave Matthews Band - Next Album - RCA - October 28
    Foo Fighters - One by One - RCA - November 4
    Jean Wyclef - The Preacher's Son - J Records - October 7
    Alicia Keys - TBD (To Be Determined) - J Records - November 4
    Annie Lennox - TBD - J Records - November 4
    Rod Stewart - TBD - J Records - November 4
    Luther Vandross - TBD - J Records - November 4

    I will be picking up Dave Matthews, Rod Stewart, and probably the Annie Lennox disc. I wouldn't be surprised if the Dave Matthews disc quickly becomes one of the top selling Hi-res discs of all times. His fan base is nuts, picking up everything that comes down the line sporting his name.

    Who would have thought that so many artists would be coming out with discs titled TBD at the same time [​IMG]

    Seriously, this is good news, along with the statement that BMG will be releasing 20 titles by year's end. Whether that holds true or not is another issue altogether.

    Regards,

    It's not too hard to figure out what the J Records titles will be (the 5.1 mix for some songs from the wonderful Annie Lennox Bare album has been previewed already, according to online reports), but I guess we'll have to wait for the "official" press release.

    I think a couple months ago it was announced that JA on sacd was cancelled, with no official explanation given. I have the remastered Surrealistic Pillow on CD (from 2001), and to be totally honest, IMO these recordings just don't sound good enough to put on any hi-res format.

    Looks like BMG Music is having a tough time, like many other companies. From today's Wall Street Journal website:

    Justin. The relevance is that BMG owns the Jefferson Airplane catalog and that's the only BMG artist that comes to mind that I would gladly replace my CD collection with SACD or DVDA. It wsn't meant as a crap thread.

    I meant that if BMG was going to stick their toe in on the Hi-Rez /MC market, a title like Surrealistic Pillow or The Worst of Jefferson Airplane seemed like a logical choice (to me).
