    Universal released this week two big country albums...Toby Keith Shock n Yall and Lee Ann Womack Greatest Hits. They also updated their release schedule.

    They expressed a strong commitment to hirez and plan to have 385 hirez titles available come year end 2004.



    I am particularly excited about the Mercury Living Presence discs due out soon.

    It's surprising that Best Buy is not mentioned as a retailer that may stock these titles, although I think it will.

    Will pick up "Lee Ann Womack Greatest Hits" if I can find it.

    I saw the Toby Keith at Best Buy yesterday.

    The Lee Ann Womack should be great. "I Hope You Dance" is one of my favorite songs. [​IMG]

    Purchased Lee Ann Womack SACD tonight from Best Buy. CD layer is HDCD encoded. "Mendocino County Line" with Willie Nelson is awesome. Hmmmm....giant FBI warning now on the disc??

    I've unfortunately seen this monstrosity on a couple of discs now. I'm afraid the labels will never get the meaning of the word "subtle". [​IMG]

    Forget to mention this....at least at my local Best Buy, I have go to the regular CD section to find the Lee Ann Womack SACD. All of the stock for this title was there [​IMG] No Toby Keith SACD though.
