I know this is always being discussed, but when is the SACD for Norah's album actually being released? I haven't heard any news or seen any reviews...

I'm one of the few people who have held off buying the CD in anticipation for the SACD - maybe i should not wait any longer and get the redbook CD seeing it's now so cheap!

This is one of the few releases that i'm REALLY waiting on :)

Ok so June 10 seems to be the release date...i love answering my own posts!!

I did find this paragraph over at www.audiorevolution.com however;

Insiders at EMI who have a pre-release copy of the Norah Jones record tell AudioRevolution.com that the surround mix is subtle like being in the club with Norah and less like a more aggressive surround mix as you will find on the recently released Dark Side of the Moon.

Derek, yes, it appears that June 10th is the day...for now. I wouldn't camp out at your local store the night before if I were you based on the way things have gone with this title. ;)

Some people here and on Audio Asylum claimed to have the SACD already. I don't know how that can be. Perhaps they had the CD and didn't know it. :confused:

Thanks for sharing the comments on the surround-sound mix. If that's true, it will be a real treat. A club-like mix suits the album perfectly. A whiz-bang, in-your-face mix would be a disaster. Completely inappropriate.

I haven't received mine from Circuit City yet, either, but I'll be sure to let everyone know if it arrives early.
Nor have I. I also have Blue Train on pre-order there, and have yet to receive shipping confirmation for that title either. I am guessing these will be shipped out next week sometime. On a positive note, my copy of Peter Gabriel up on SACD has shipped, so I will at least have some new music to listen to next week.

Emil, thanks for the information. I pre-ordered the Steely Dan Everything Must Go DVD-Audio disc from circuitcity.com and despite the official release date being the 10th, I got an e-mail message a couple of days ago telling me that it has shipped. I guess circuitcity.com is trying to get new releases to people on or before the release date, which is a good thing!

Circuit City has shipped my copy of Norah Jones, along with Blue Train. It looks like after countless delays, the Blue Note SACD will finally get here (however I won't believe it until I actually have the disc in my hands...these discs have literally been delayed 5 times).

The Fed Ex man just dropped off my copy about 20 minutes ago.

Can't wait to get home and hear this one. :)
