    Highfidelityreview.com has information on the new Sony/Philips 09.02 SACD catalog. This is the type of catalog that you may have seen at the SACD kiosk at Circuit City and at Tower Records. I don't know if these stores or any others have the new catalog. New titles shown in the 09.02 catalog are listed here:

    If you scroll down on this link, you can see the cover of the catalog, which shows a vintage picture of the Rolling Stones. Looks nice!
    In my opinion, here are some of the highlights among the new titles, based on artists that interest me and have gotten a lot of talk here:
    * James Taylor October Road (Sony, single-layer multi-channel)
    * Oasis (What's The Story) Morning Glory? (Sony, single-layer multi-channel)
    * Tony Bennett Playin' With My Friends: Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, Sheryl Crow, Billy Joel, B.B. King, Diana Krall, k.d. Lang, Bonnie Raitt, Kay Starr and Stevie Wonder (Sony, single-layer multi-channel)
    * Ozzy Osbourne Live At Budokan (Sony, single-layer multi-channel)
    * Oasis Heathen Chemistry (Sony, single-layer multi-channel)
    * David Bowie Heathen (Sony, single-layer multi-channel)
    * Nickel Creek Nickel Creek (Sugar Hill, hybrid multi-channel)
    * Nickel Creek This Side (Sugar Hill, hybrid multi-channel)
    * John Williams E.T.: The 20th Anniversary Soundtrack (Universal Music, hybrid multi-channel)
    * Diana Krall The Look of Love (Universal Music, hybrid multi-channel)
    * Muddy Waters Folk Singer (Universal Music, single-layer stereo)
    * John Coltrane A Love Supreme (Universal Music, single-layer stereo)
    * Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto Getz/Gilberto (Universal Music, single-layer stereo)
    * Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong Ella and Louis (Universal Music, single-layer stereo)
    * Thelonious Monk 5 by Monk by 5 (Analogue Productions, hybrid stereo)
    * John Coltrane Standard Coltrane (Analogue Productions, hybrid stereo)
    * Art Pepper Meets the Rhythm Section (Analogue Productions, hybrid stereo)
    * Creedence Clearwater Revival Willy & the Poorboys (Analogue Productions, hybrid stereo)
    * Creedence Clearwater Revival Cosmo's Factory (Analogue Productions, hybrid stereo)
    * Bill Evans Sunday at the Village Vanguard (Analogue Productions, hybrid stereo)
    * Bill Evans Trio Moon Beams (Analogue Productions, hybrid stereo)
    * Cannonball Adderly with Bill Evans Know What I Mean? (Analogue Productions, hybrid stereo)
    * Norah Jones Come Away With Me (Blue Note, hybrid stereo)
    * John Coltrane Blue Train (Blue Note, hybrid stereo)
    * Quincy Jones Ultimate Collection (Universal Music, hybrid stereo)
    I will be very surprised if Universal Music turns out any single-layer SACDs, but the catalog indicates that they will release a few. Strange.
    Well, as always, I'll believe it when I see it with regards to these titles, but I have my wallet ready. There is awesome stuff there! Whoo-hoo! [​IMG]

    Ouch, my wallet!
    Most of these have been discussed here to some degree or another. Elusive disc is still listing the Analogue Production SACDs for September 24th. They have also added titles from Buddy Rich and Cal Tjader.
    It will be fun to compare the SACD and DAD of Blue Train. Then we could all fight over which is better. Whoopee!
    It is surprising to see Universal doing some hybrids and some not. [​IMG]
    I would also like to point out that Cassandra Wilson has one coming out. She is a very eclectic and talented artist who's music, unfortunately, I've not had the opportunity to explore. Perhaps this will provide this opportunity.
    There's also a tasty lookin' Beethoven's 9th conducted by Karajan. However, I'm surprised by the dearth of classical music listed.

    Keith,
    We also get some excellent Harmonia Mundi titles. The smaller Classical labels are suddenly all over SACD.
    I sense momentum is really gathering here.

    I noticed that there will be a Cassandra Wilson release on SACD. I saw her in concert last week and I am now trying to get other material from her.

    Marty,

    With her name in my head from reading this thread, I picked up Blue Light 'Til Dawn during my lunch break. It's pretty cool- she does a Van Morrison song, a Joni Mitchell tune, two Robert Johnson songs, and a nice mix of stuff. Her singing is understated and stylish.

    I like her because she's not one of those chicks who belts out and pseudo-operas her way into the charts to the point of annoyance. She's actually pleasant to listen to.

    Mike, I think you're gonna really like Cassandra's "New Moon Daughter". Great version of "Strange Fruit" and a fine cover of "Skylark", as well as a shockingly fantastic version of The Monkees "Last Train to Clarkesville" (I shit you not!).
    And after waiting and waiting and waiting for the SACD announcement that never came, I finally picked up the Norah Jones CD yesterday. (Sigh) Sorta like the ol' washing your car/here comes the rain deal. [​IMG]

    Rich,
    I'll definitely check out the Wilson SACD. I just listened to one of her albums for the first time and I liked it.
    She ain't too hard on the eyes, neither. :b

    Any idea when the Nickel Creek SACDs will be out? I've been interested in picking them up, but I'm waiting on the SACD versions to come out, so I don't have to buy them twice.

    Michael, I hear you. Well, I pay cash for virtually everything. It's still pain either way, however, my ears feel great. [​IMG]

    Wow, that's a lot of great stuff on the way. I also highly recommend New Moon Daughter by Cassandra Wilson; I think it's her finest album, with great arrangements that are a bit more lively than those on her other records.
    Krall and some others of today's female jazz vocalists are very good, but Wilson stands in a league of her own. Her handling of standards and of more contemporary songs is so fresh and unorthodox, so unlike what anyone else is doing.

    All this talk of Cassandra Wilson has me intrigued. Where should I start if I want to experiment with her music? I'm just looking for a CD at this point. Thanks in advance.

    Keith, I'm digging the first CD of hers I bought so far, Blue 'Till Dawn. Allmusic Guide also gives it a high ranking.

    Do you like Van Morisson? This CD has Wilson's version of Tupelo Honey. It's pretty neat.
