    "Groundbreaking from Universal continues with their upcoming Elton John Deluxe Edition SACDs in two styles and with added bonuses. Available as an SACD Hybrid with bonus DVD and as a SACD Hybrid Deluxe Edition, you'll end up with the best package possible of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. This album sold over 7 million and generated a slew of hits. And it's one that everyone has been waiting for.

    The SACD/DVD edition contains the original album with the additions of bonus tracks, "Whenever You're Ready (We'll Go Steady)", "Jack Rabbit", and "Screw You (Young Man Blues)", not included on the original but emanating from the sessions. There is also a previously unreleased bonus track with an acoustic version of "Candle In the Wind". In addition, this release will contain, on the DVD, a 50 minute film on the "Making of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". Chapters will include, "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road", "Jamaican Jerk-Off", "Ballad of Danny Bailey", " Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting", "Bennie and The Jets", "Sweet Painted Lady", "Roy Rogers", and "Candle in the Wind". The packaging will be an 8 panel Digipak, fitting inside a double keeper. The Deluxe Version will have a plastic O-Slipsleeve. The SACD Hybrid Deluxe Edition will contain everything listed above with the exception of the DVD bonus. Both come on 2 CDs."

    I'm sure this will become clearer as more details are revealed, perhaps from Matt Rowe himself, but I don't understand why the "Deluxe Edition" seemingly offers less: "The SACD Hybrid Deluxe Edition will contain everything listed above with the exception of the DVD bonus."

    I can't wait to own it on yet another format. So far, vinyl, reel to reel, and 8-track for a car I once owned...oh, and a truly miserable early CD of it.

    I wonder how it will compare to the MoFi version. It will probably toast it which means that I've got another MoFi that will never be touched! I should sell off my entire MoFi collection while there's still time left.[​IMG]

    I believe the DVD material was actually a TV special I saw back in '75, but not since...

    If this release is the same one, it's cool.

    Then there's the upcoming DVD-Audio release, which has been announced without a firm date.

    It is possible, depending on content that all of this would be on a single DVD disc, depending on video running time.

    And yet they're including something along those lines with the SACD.

    What's true for one, is true for the other.

    Now which to get, the DVD-Audio or the SACD. It again boils down to which way the master was created... in PCM or DSD.

    Anyone know for sure??

    The Universal SA-CD releases so far have come from PCM masters.

    John, what about the new Aaron Neville, PCM? I think it's the best sounding Universal SACD I've heard so far.

    Racheal,

    It will sound best in native PCM.

    I don't doubt that it can sound very good, it's been done before and will be done again. The initial capture, regardless of format, will be the biggest limiting factor in the product that is ultimately delivererd to the consumer.

    Regards,

    John, it's a really good sounding SACD. It might very well pass for DSD recorded with most folks? I'm sure that you're right in theoretical sense that it could sound better staying PCM, but in a practical sense it's proably not that important if the end product is DVD-A or SACD. The other factors: mastering, mixing, editing, ect, ect, proably outweigh any very slight sound quality advantage one way or the other. I think most listeners wouldn't have premium enough playback equipment to tell one way or the other anyway if it was even possible, perceptable.

    I'd say this is the one of the best sounding Universal SACD's I've heard yet, proably the best. Some of their early stuff was purr-dy lacklustre but they seem to be getting it together.

    It'll be curious when they have a bunch of dual SACD and DVD-A stuff out in the near future. Best wishes![​IMG]

    OLD THREAD.


    this week best buy has the deluxe version on sale for $20.
    i picked up the version with the dvd, non deluxe and took it to the counter.
    it rang up at 27.99 so i showed him the ad and said shouldnt this be 20?
    so he changed the price to 20.


    so from this thread it looks like this is exacly the same as the deluxe editition with a dvd added in. right?

    anyone notice that the song numbers on the player go to 9, 10 and so on instead of starting over at 1 and 2 when playing the second disc? Unfortunately the printed song list starts over at 1 [​IMG]
