    Emil, thanks for the information. Unfortunately, I could not get your link to work.
    Doesn't Warner own the rights to Deep Purple Machine Head? Isn't it already out on DVD-Audio? [​IMG]

    Hi Keith,

    Sorry about that. I fixed the link.

    As to Machine Head, EMI owns the Europe rights and hence the SACD release.

    Emil, thanks for the fixing the link. Now that you mention it, I remember reading awhile back that EMI owned the rights to Machine Head in Europe. That's an odd arrangement. I might look to get it as an import SACD. [​IMG]

    Alright, Ziggy Stardust![​IMG]
    It would be great to A/B an SACD of Machine Head with the DVD-A.

    Yee-Ming,
    I too am looking forward to the Spandau Ballet SACD. [​IMG]
    All,
    There is debate on Steve Hoffman's forum as to whether the studio album or movie soundtrack to Ziggy Stardust will be released on SACD. Hopefully it will be the studio album.

    Oh yeah!!! Spandau Ballet!!!

    EMI should consider releasing SB's "The Singles Collection" on SACD.

    When's Duran Duran's turn on SACD??? Capitol should really consider releasing Duran Duran's albums on SACD as a way of celebrating the upcoming studio album with all five original members.

    I should clarify, though, that at the moment I have no opinion as to SACD v. DVD-A. since my intention was always to get a universal player sometime in the future, it doesn't matter to me which hi-res format it's released on, just that there's something of sufficient interest on either to get me to take the plunge.

    Duran Duran on hi-res? hmmmmm...

    there's a new studio album with all 5 members? details please!

    must say, though, that admittedly Spandau & Duran stuff were "fluffy pop", and I'm not sure that hi-res is really "necessary" nor relevant to their material. it's not as if they were really really really meticulous craftsmen, like say the Floyd.

    please don't construe this as bashing either, though, I'm a fan and own most of their albums. legacy of being an 80s kid.

    slightly OT: just about the only stuff I have autographed is my Spandau albums. I have the True and Parade CDs, as well as a Parade LP, autographed by Tony Hadley, when he came to Singapore to promote his solo album. my sister was a DJ on the local radio station promoting the trip, so she interviewed him, and got him to sign my stuff. later, I also met him after a club performance, and we had a nice chat about Arsenal FC...

    Spandau Ballet and Roxy Music ?!! Ziggy Stardust [​IMG]
    I'm having a massive 80s flashback. [​IMG]
    This is great news! [​IMG]
    I hope we will see more Spandau Ballet titles.
    I would also like to see The Stranglers, one of my favorite New Wave bands eventually...

    Yee-Ming,
    Go to Duran Duran's official website and check out the progress on the upcoming studio album with all five original members. I just checked and new photos from the recording session is up. Is that Niles Rodgers??
    As to whether Spandau Ballet and Duran Duran belong on "hi-rez" formats, I figure if Frankie Goes To Hollywood can get the "hi-rez" treatment, so can 2 of the biggest bands of the 80s.
    A comment about my post above regarding Duran Duran on SACD....I will take DD on either "hi-rez" format.
    Keith,
    I not only want to hear "Girls on Film" in "hi-rez", I probably need to see the unedited video as well [​IMG]

    ...Still waiting to hear if the three LeRoux albums that EMI had in the UK (Capitol in the US) will come out on SACD...
    [​IMG]
    That's one of my personal benchmarks for getting into hi-rez.
    Duran Duran might be another.

    Roxy Music's Avalon should sound fantastic in high resolution because, I believe, it was recorded at 30ips. Still remains one of the most beautiful recorded albums ever.

    I believe Gary Kemp won the lawsuit with the other members of Spandau Ballet. Those other guys should've known better than have just a verbal agreement.

    Perhaps Spandau Ballet may consider a reunion tour as the opening act for the "original" Duran Duran. Power Station and Acadia can drop by as well.
