    Cruising elusive disc, I came across a real tasty set of SACDs being releases next week. Oh, my poor wallet:
    Stakowski: Rhapsodies
    And import, $39.99. Too rich for my blood. [​IMG]
    All the following are hybrids from Analogue productions:
    Cannonball Adderley- Know What I Mean?
    This is a fantastic album. Analogue has yet to dissappoint- I'm highly recommending this one without having heard the SACD. The music is class A.
    John Coltrane- Standard Coltrane
    Analogue P is my favorite SACD producers. They're really playing to my tastes! It's Coltrane, how can you not get it?
    CCR- Cosmo's Factory, Willy & The Poor Boys
    Bill Evans- Moonbeams, Sunday at the Village Vanguard
    I have never heard Moonbeams. Village Vanguard is my favorite of the ones I have. The other album of music recorded from these concerts, Waltz For Debby, is already out on SACD. Debby musically is less interesting for my tastes and I lamented that it, not Vanguard, was released on SACD. This has been remedied at last!
    Vince Guaraldi, Black Orpheus
    I never got into him. He's probably most famous for his trio albums of Charlie Brown music.
    Thelonious Monk, 5 By 5
    Ah, bestill my beating heart. Monk is man. I am so on this disc.
    Art Pepper- Meets the Rhythm Section
    Never heard any Art Pepper, believe it or not.
    Mobile Fidelity steps up with SACD!
    Isaac Hayes- Hot Buttered Soul
    Gettin'-it-on music in high-res! Now I can hit on girls with a higher sampling rate.
    Fidelis Records:
    Astor Piazolla- Histoire Du Tango
    I'm not familiar with Piazolla. I just know that he's a huge influence on a lot of songwriters and guitar players.
    Tchaikovsky- Seasons
    Vivaldi, Bach, Kodaly- Violoncello
    Interesting. I remember hearing Kodaly once and liking it. I want this record.
    Ok, so I pretty much want all of these. I'm not even kidding. I am both happy that they are being released and angry that I can't have them all now.
    Doesn't anyone want to buy me some of these, you know, in appreciation of all my wonderful posts and for being a generally swell guy?

    Mike,
    Don't forget about the 45 LPs also on sale as mentioned by Steve Hoffman.
    And I second the Adderley album - very good. Mike you are now hurting my wallet (like there's anything left after the Stones spree at midnight!)

    I just poked around Acoustic Sounds and Elusive Disc and came to the same conclusion brighter folks on this board already came to a long time ago: Analogue Productions charges more than Telarc, Sony, and most other SACD makers (I was blaming Elusive Disc :b ).

    Why? What makes them so special? And why must Murphy's Law come into play and set it up so that their titles are my most desired discs?

    Yeah Mike,

    I agree there are quite a few discs coming that will put a dent in the wallet besides the Stones disc. However, I would expect that several of these will probably not make that date. The Stones discs are kind of putting out a monopoly on Hybrid SACD production.

    There are some other titles due any time soon coming from Virgin (I will post when they actual start shipping):

    Roxy Music - Best of
    Adiemus - Songs of Sanctuary
    Penguin Cafe Orchestra - A Brief History
    Ennio Morricone - The Mission (OST)
    Michael Nyman - The Piano (OST)

    Hopeful by mid September other titles will start to show.

    Emil,

    This concern is why I have not pre-ordered the discs and am waiting until the 30th to see if they actually list them as "In Stock."

    Well, it looks like Emil was right. All of these titles are delayed. The date given now is September 24th. The Isaac Hayes is listed for November.
