Fortunately for my musical needs and unfortunately for my wallet, I work right near a Tower Records, a Newbury Comics, and a Barnes & Noble (which I rarely visit, but I did find some obscure Robert Fripp stuff there). I have avoided going there to try to save money (instead I end up spending it in Virgin and Best Buy ). Today I venture in the Tower looking for the new Miles Davis remastered CDs. Lo and behold- their SACD section is pretty big... well, relatively. It was even organised by artist. Besides seeing some familiar titles, there were a few that I was quite surprised about, like a Johny Winters compilation (I'm surprised it hasn't been brought up in this forum) and Billie Holiday's Lady In Satin. Two more titles on my to-get list. There were also a bunch of titles from Channel Classics that featured some exotic (to me) music, or at least they weren't the typical classical warhorses. However, I was not adventurous enough today to select one of those. My final purchase: Miles Davis- Filles De Killemenjaro and In A Silent Way, remastered. Bela Fleck & the Flecktones- UFO TOFU (the only Flecktones album missing from my collection) Murray Perahia- Bach Piano Concertos, volume 2, SACD. I already have two of his SACDs- Bach's Godlberg Variations and Mozart's piano concertos. I can't go wrong with this one. Since it's a "volume 2," there must be a volume 1. Must.. get.. that! Oscar Peterson, Milt Jackson, Ray Brown- The Very Tall Band, SACD hybrid (Telarc). Listening to it now (CD layer). This song is called "Remembering Clifford," which I assume refers to the great trumpet player Clifford Brown, who died tragically before his star fully rised. The lament over Cliff Brown performed by Ray Brown (no relation) who himself recently passed is kind of depressing. Way to go Telarc on getting those titles out there! Kudos to Tower, or at least my Tower, on stocking, labeling, and organising SACDS. I also noticed that in the Rolling Stones section, they had a sign on the shelf promoting the "remastered" CDs coming out tomorrow. Sweet.
