    That would be one wack CD; Marvin Gaye and John Hiatt together at last.

    Bring the Family is a fantastic album. I may have to get it.

    Keith,

    I believe the Marvin Gaye will be the deluxe edition where the 2 CD's are on 1 SACD, like they did with the Who and the Police Live discs.

    Frankly, I would prefer that to a release where it needs to be 2 discs to accomodate the CD layer.

    Emil, I love the fact that the Who SACD has 91 minutes of music on one disc. That is novel. However, I would prefer two discs if it meant making it a hybrid.

    Perhaps we are seeing a little marketing of the SACD format from Universal. Although they have not advertised it, I wonder if they are hoping that people will notice that two-disc CD releases are coming out as single-disc releases on SACD. By making the SACDs single-layer releases (which I still don't like), Universal is making SACD look more efficient, so to speak.

    Emil, by the way, I am glad to see Universal putting the Deluxe Editions on SACD. I just wish they had done that for Coltrane A Love Supreme. That's another inconsistency from Universal.

    I think that I'm not buying any more single-layer discs....

    Another SACD that I would have bought if it wasn't a single layer. I personally hope that single layers fail to sell a significant amount, forcing Sony and Universal to go with hybrid only. I will do my part by ignoring this release until it is re-released as a hybrid, hopefully a multichannel hybrid.

    I'm not sure if the reason Universal is so inconsistent (single/dual layer) with sacd's is because 1) Internally, they don't agree on how to market sacd, or 2) there is not enough manufacturing capacity for dual-layer sacd's. Either way, much like dvd-audio, to the average consumer it makes this new format look kind of amateurish.

    Luckily, flipper technology (dvd-audio's hybrid) is proven technology. And as far as manufacturing capacity goes--witness the amount of dvd-video discs out there, especially the ones for TV show box-sets. I think the only potential problem is trying to squeeze in some dvd-a flipper production in between Season 6 of "The X-Files" and the next run of "24" discs. [​IMG]
