    Friends,
    More Super Audio title news. Today Steve Hoffman put on his website www.stevehoffman.tv that he is working on the Zombies Greatest Hits for Super Audio.
    Also comes word that three more titles of CCR will be released on Super Audio for a total of five albums.

    Lee, I read about the other CCR SACDs on Audio Asylum the other day. This is excellent news, indeed. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Lee, I read about this on Audio Asylum too. Not my kind of music, but it's good for SACD nonetheless.

    I never picked up anything by Piazolla but have always meant to. These releases will be good opportunity to do that.

    Does anyone know if these and/or the CCR discs will be hybrids?

    NP: Stevie Ray Vaughan, Couldn't Stand the Weather, SACD

    Mike, the CCR releases from Mr. Hoffman will be hybrid stereo SACDs (no multi-channel SACD). I don't know about the other titles. However, since they are not coming from Sony ([​IMG]), I'm sure they will be hybrid discs too.
    I see you picked up the Couldn't Stand the Weather SACD. How do you like it? Do have a copy on CD for comparison?

    Keith, yeah, I love the SRV disc. SRV is by far my favorite white blues guitarist, so it's a joy to hear his stuff on SACD.

    For every non-classical Sony SACD I have, I also have the regular CD version of the same title so that I can listen to it outside of my house. I believe that this is why Sony refuses to make hybrids- so that suckers like me can by the same damn album twice.

    I did not do an A/B comparison, eg, putting on one after the other.

    NP: Handel, Messiah, DTS CD

    Mike, Stevie Ray was a heck of a guitarist. Couldn't Stand the Weather is simply excellent. On SACD, it is incredible.
    The vast majority of my SACDs are Sony titles. For every Sony SACD in my collection, I have the CD version too. Like you, I have the CDs for playback in the car and in the office. I occasionally compare the CDs and SACDs in my home systems too. So, file under "Suckers that Sony loves and can exploit". [​IMG]
    NP: Mary Chapin Carpenter time*sex*love* CD in my second stereo system. The SACD is loaded in one of my players in the main system. No joke. [​IMG]

    Cool news about the Zombies. Now if someone would do the Small Faces I'd run out tomorrow and get a SACD player.

    Larry,
    You can make a posting on www.stevehoffman.tv and your voice will be heard. I see Steve on the board daily and he often uses board interest to make a case for new albums to the various record labels he works with.

    Just a FYI...

    Elusive disk is taking pre-orders for the Willie & the Poorboys & Cosmos Factory SACDs. I just did mine and hope they ship at the end of this month.

    Thank you John for this news.
    Elusive Disc has really been doing a great job on the newer Super Audio titles.
