    Mike,

    I just picked up some Fantasy titles over the weekend but have not had a chance to listen I've been so busy.

    I will post some capsule reviews soon.

    So there's the chance of both "Air Supply: The Definitive Collection" and "Kenny G Live" being released on SACD domestically? [​IMG]

    Just in case someone doesn't know what I am talking about, see this.

    Some Elvis SACDs would be cool.

    Probably true. BMG is a total disaster when it comes to their classical music division. Before they work on SACD, I would much rather see them open up their vaults. It's amazing that they have yet to release Ormandy's premier recordings of Shostakovich's 13th and 14th symphonies (actually they are making their CD debut in Japan this winter).

    Here's a reason that we will likely see more BMG SACDs...

    Sony and BMG are merging their music divisions:

    Seth,

    I thought you like Bruckner. Well you point had nothing to do with Bruckner just BMG's poor use of their classical library.

    I have ordered the 9th and will let you know what I think of it.

    I do like Bruckner. My point has to do more with my disgust for BMG.

    I've heard the recording - pretty good, but nothing earth shattering.

    Seth,

    I know you recommended a good Bruckner recording for SACD inclusion but can't remember which one it was.
