    Well it seems their are several SACD/DVD-A audio fans. So if there is interest, I will be posting release lists for the week to keep everyone up on what is coming out. Titles with an * are confirmed.

    SACD-

    James Taylor - JT (M/C - Single - Sony)*
    Meatloaf - Bat Out Of Hell (M/C - Single - Sony)*
    Midori - Violin Sonatas (Stereo - Single - Sony)*
    Rolling Stones - Aftermath (US) (Stereo - Hybrid - Abkco)*
    Rolling Stones - Beggar's Banquet (Stereo - Hybrid - Abkco)*
    Rolling Stones - Big Hits (Stereo - Hybrid - Abkco)*
    Rolling Stones - Hot Rocks (Stereo - Hybrid - Abkco)*
    Rolling Stones - Out of your Heads UK (Stereo - Hybrid - Abkco)*
    Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed (Stereo - Hybrid - Abkco)*
    Rolling Stones - Metamorphosis (Stereo - Hybrid - Abkco)*
    Rolling Stones - Through The Past (Stereo - Hybrid - Abkco)*

    Notes: All of the Rolling Stones discs should be al released by September 4. The above seem to be the first batch. However, depending on the retailer, there is a possibility that more titles may be available on Tuesday. Will update on the 27th.

    Also, I just saw the Midori disc. Although it is a stereo disc, it is in a multi-channel sleeve. FYI

    DVD-A

    R.E.M.: Reveal (Warner)*


    Of course, dates are subject to change and I will update once actual confirmation is received.

    Silverline sure picks some weird ones. REO Speedwagon? Gary Numan? Oh well, what ever keeps the format moving.

    I am curious to hear a Silverline release. They get ignored and slammed a lot. If they ever do release something that would interest me, I'll pick it up.

    Note the Bat Out of Hell has already been released (I think) in stereo, so this is continuing the trend of re-releasing them as MCs.

    I'm a little dissappointed that Aftermath will be the US version, not UK, but that's alright since Let It Bleed and Begger's Banquet will keep my occupied.

    NP: Bartok, Boulez conducting, Concerto for Orchestra / Miraculous Mandarin, SACD

    Emil, thanks for the information. The Taylor SACD interests me in addition to the Stones discs. It's too bad that the Gary Numan DVD-Audio disc will be a Silverline release. I would love to hear "Cars" in high-resolution stereo. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I agree with you on the Silverline discs. I have sworn them off. I am currently listening to the J.T. disc. Initial impression is very good. Sony is on a good little role.

    Personally, I will be getting the Meatloaf, all the Stones discs and REM. In addition to a lot of good DVD releases, this is a good week.

    NP: James Taylor - J.T. (SACD)

    Updated:

    All the Silverline and AIX DVD-A releases were bumped to next week. So the only DVD-A release is the REM disc.

    Emil, how did you get the new Taylor SACD early? I might grab this disc and some of the Stones discs tomorrow. The Stones discs are supposed to be available only in digipaks, but I might hold out awhile to see if they come out in jewel cases. I much prefer jewel cases. I already have the stereo SACD of Meat Loaf Bat Out of Hell, so I will probably hold off on the multi-channel version for now.

    Keith,

    I am lucky that I have some Fry's Electrnoics close. Not only are the prices cheap (15.99 for the JT disc), they regularly put them out early.

    As far as the Stones go, I wish they were in Super Jewel Cases. At first, I was going to try and wait but I just know that come tomorrow (or maybe tonight), I will be weak and buy them in the digipaks.

    Which ones are you planning on?

    Emil, Fry's sounds like a cool store based on their selection of SACDs and low prices. I was in Santa Rosa, CA on business in June, but unfortunately, there is no Fry's there. [​IMG] Oh well. Perhaps I'll get to one of those stores one day.
