    What a great disc. I have already listened to the album three times today... twice in surround, and once in stereo, and am thinking about spinning it again. Another great surround mix from Elliot Scheiner right on par with The Nightfly. Production and sonics are top notch throughout the entire disc which contains a 96/24 surround and stereo track (though originally digital 24/48, Scheiner went PCM to analog tape and then back to PCM according to this thread)

    Disc also contains videos for Snowbound and Tomorrow's Girls as well as a behind the scenes video and lyrics. Low-res mixes in DD and DTS. To put it mildly, this is one packed disc.

    So far my personal favorite is Florida Room, a very cool and relaxing surround mix that transports the listener from their locale to the forementioned room.

    Another must buy disc from Warner, who seems to finally be getting their act together.

    Yep, I also received this disc as well and it is excellent. Although I still like the Chicago disc more, this is a no brainer at $14. [​IMG]

    Some interesting news on the recording and why it lists 48K on the packaging...it is 48K. From HFR:

    Interesting comments Lee. I like to see truth in labeling whenever possible.

    I kind of wish SACD did the same thing, letting us know when the disc was sourced from PCM elements (most recordings from the past 20 years), editing was done in PCM (many SACD, including some of the Stones), and what was the original sampling rate and word length of the original recording. Right now all we get is a DSD label which leaves the big (many times PCM) picture obsucred. For most people sampling rates are not a big deal regardless of format, but as an audio enthusiast I find such knowledge a benefit.

    Cant believe I waited almost 3 weeks to get this one, but I finally picked it up over the weekend. Wow! I don't remember liking Kamakiriad this much when it 1st came out (content wise), but revisiting it has me really enjoying the content more and more. Maybe the the difference between listening to it in my early 20's compared to my early 30's. Oh yeah, and the mix sounds great! This is my new favorite DVD-A as well now. And at $10.99 at Media Play, it was a steal.
