    Many of us here get frustrated when good releases like CCR are pushed back to later dates. A lot of this recently was due to the massive pressings for the Rolling Stones.
    Alas, companies are making progress in making the addition of hybrid disc lines (redbook + Super Audio) more readily implemented. Singulus is one such company as mentioned in this news story:

    Hopefully this will minimize future pushbacks as the new format matures and gains volume in sales.

    Lee, has CCR been pushed backed again? I was hoping to have the 1st 2 this week.

    Keith,
    Sony is not one of the companies mentioned in the press release but they have been making hybrid discs as we discussed earlier on the Forum when we discovered Stones SACDs pressed in Japan...by Sony! [​IMG]
    From High Fidelity Review's article of David Kawakami at the recent AES:

    They're saying October 20 for the first two CCRs, and end of November for the rest.

    Lee,
    O.K., so when we can expect the first Sony titles in hybrid form? [​IMG]
    Ryan,

    I'm pretty sure the first 2 CCR's have been pushed back to about 7 or 8 November or there-abouts. I got this off either Acoustic Sounds' or Elusive Disc's site, can't remember which...?
    Yea-auh Lee, when is Sony gonna do the right thing?[​IMG] Best wishes!

    Rachael, it seems like those CCR SACDs are getting pushed closer and closer to that date we all abhor...the 12th of Never. [​IMG]

    I'm not sure I trust the elusivedisc.com dates -- they've been weird lately, and changing often. Right now they list "Cosmo's" and "Willy" on 10/18, "CCR" and "Bayou" on 10/20, and "Green" on 11/30. I don't think that makes much sense.

    The acousticsounds.com site (which is affiliated with the discs' label, so I tend to believe them more) lists "Cosmo's" and "Willy" on 10/14, and the rest on 11/30.

    Since 10/14 has come and gone, who knows...

    Ryan,
    This is why I always say, "I'll believe it when I see it", when it comes to new titles on SACD or DVD-Audio. Too many delays.
    Lee,
    I can see it now. Sony will release Miles Davis Kind of Blue as its first hybrid SACD. Of course, it will be released as a hybrid stereo SACD. Then about a year later, Sony will re-release Kind of Blue as a hybrid multi-channel SACD. That will make four versions of Kind of Blue on SACD in four years! [​IMG]
