    If you were completely new to this format, what would be your 5 must have purchases?

    I already have the Stones Hot Rocks re-issue and am looking at picking up 5 other titles. Preferrably something across different genres like a few jazz, some blues, and a classical for starters.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanx,
    Lin

    Keb Mo - The Door

    While I do own Miles Davis (Kind of Blue) & Dave Brubeck (Time Out), I remain engrossed by pop/blues/country.

    My top picks for SACD:

    Alison Krauss' NEW FAVORITE
    Grant-Lee Phillips - Mobilize < decent rock album
    Sonny Rollins' SAXOPHONE COLOSSUS < Max Roach's drumming really pulls this set together.
    Anthony Wilson Trio - OUR GANG

    Here are my favorites from my collection. In no order

    1) Alison Krauss - Now That I've Found You (A Collection)
    You pretty much can't go wrong with any of hers.

    2) Jacintha - Here's To Ben
    I like all of Jacintha's sacds but this one is my favorite.
    (Thanks for the recommendation Rachael)

    3) James Taylor - Hourglass

    4) Doug Macleod - Whose Truth, Whose Lies?
    Both of Doug's titles are good.

    5) Keb Mo - The Door - From the recommendations here I bought this and then bought all of his regular CDS because I liked his music that much.

    I really like Appalachian Journey with YoYoMa, Edgar Meyer, and Mark O'Connor. Also James Taylor sings on one track and Alsion Krauss.

    I only get to choose five? That's impossible!

    Here are five, but not the only five, in no particular order:

    1) The Rolling Stones Hot Rocks 1964-1971. 'Nuff said.

    2) Alison Krauss Now That I've Found You: A Collection. I should be getting the New Favorite SACD in the mail this week, and I have a feeling I will include it on subsequent must-have lists.

    3) Stevie Ray Vaughan Couldn't Stand the Weather. Simply great in every respect.

    4) James Taylor Hourglass. Just listen to "Gaia".

    5) Various Artists, The Sopranos Pepper & Eggs: Music From The HBO Original Series. A lot of great stuff here, and it all sounds great.

    I only have 8 SACD's so far, so narrowing it down to five is not too difficult. [​IMG] In no particular order:
    James Taylor - Hourglass
    Stevie Ray Vaughan - Couldn't Stand The Weather
    Diana Krall - The Look Of Love
    Diana Krall - When I Look In Your Eyes
    Carol King - Tapestry

    Does anyone know if it's possible to get the first SACD release of Carole King "Tapestry" anymore? The one with the original 2-ch mix and no multi-track mix?

    Or does anyone wish to sell/trade theirs?

    Rich, I have seen the original stereo release of Tapestry at local Circuit City stores. They typically have more than one copy. Is there a particular reason that you want the stereo version? It has been said that Sony has improved the stereo track when preparing the multi-channel release. I noticed this with Toto Toto IV. It has also been said that the stereo track on the multi-channel version of Billie Holiday Lady in Satin is much better than the original stereo SACD. That's a special case since the original stereo SACD was a mess due to an EQ problem.

    Forgive and SACD-newbie, but do all multichannel SACD's have stereo tracks? Are they downmixed from the multichannel or exist separately - how is one to know?

    Thanx,
    Lin
