    The other to kill some time I'm in the Tower Records at Lincoln Center in New York, in the classical section. I wander into the opera section and discover their cache of classical SACDs.

    Dudes, it's like they have every freakin' title there! Stuff I didn't even know existed, from every boutique label.

    Since my hands were already full of other stuff I was picking up, I picked up only one of them, but choosing was real hard. I went with a recording of Bartok's music for two pianos: Miraculous Mandarin, Two Pictures, and Sonata with percussion. I was only familiar with the first two compositions as orchestral. This piano version of the Mandarin ballet is real nice look at the core of the music. Somehow a bit more emotional than when presented with a full orchestra (though probably harder to dance to [​IMG] ).

    With that stuff I saw there, I don't see myself complaining about the lack of SACD titles any time soon.

    yeah, that Tower is a real nice store. I was over there last month before the Deep Purple show at the Beacon.

    Found quite a few tasty music DVD's on sale for around $9.99 plus the cashier screwed up when scanning my items and missed 2 of the DVD's as it turned out.[​IMG]
