    Ryan Adams - Heartbreaker *Discovery Series* Ultradisc UHR™ SACD - Available August 24, 2004
    The music might break your heart, but the sound will enrich your soul on this post Whiskeytown solo debut by Ryan Adams on Ultradisc UHR™ SACD with GAIN 2™ mastering from MFSL. The melding of influences ranging from Paul Westerberg, Merle Haggard, Robyn Hitchcock, Steve Earle and especially Gram Parsons yields an exceptional, stunning debut from one of today's most aristically pertinent & popular recording artists. At times raucous, wistful, & raspy, and at other times simply sweet, Adams fully employs a top notch acoustic based band inclusive of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. A guest spot featuring none other than Emmylou Harris lends a particularly tender yearning to "Oh My Sweet Caroline." Another unearthed classic recording brought to full sonic fruition via MFSL's acclaimed Discovery Series.

    Anyone got this yet? Some good mentions at Steve Hoffman...

    I got mine on Tuesday along with Shoot Out The Lights but have not had a chance to listen to it yet. Way behind in listening as well and Best Buy has a 10% off coupon so I'm sure by the end of today I'll even have more that I have not listened to.

    I found this at Borders for $19.99! One of the lowest prices yet for a MFSL.

    I listened to it in my car on the Mark Levinson system and I must say the Red Book layer rocks. The vocals are very clear and forward, probably due to using a new generation microphone. I like the music as well having heard it for just the first time.

    I'm now 3 for 3 on Ryan Adams Super Audios. [​IMG]

    I will report on the DSD layer later this weekend...

    Lee, that is good that Borders is carrying it but the cheapest place for Mofi's I've found is either a pre-order or order of the disc when it 1st comes out at cduniverse.com - http://www.cduniverse.com/productinf...cart=202474595

    I got this disc yesterday, but much like everyone else, I've got about 15 new discs I've got to get to (this one, too many Fantasy titles to list, The Allman Brothers' "Fillmore East," The Thompson's "Shoot Out The Lights" and Mike Marshall's "Gator Strut"). I am however looking forward to my first exposure to Ryan Adams!



    So, is the quality on all of the RA titles good?

    Yes!

    The Red Book layer is awesome and the SACD layer is even better.

    Actually, I think you paid more than full MSRP on this disc. The discovery series has a 19.98 retail price according to the MSFL website.

    I will be looking to pick this disc up, though will probably not be able to locally as I do not have a Borders is close proximity to where I live. That CD Universe price looks good.
