    I predict 90% of which will be classical and adult contemporary.

    Suits me fine as long as they dump that "adult contemporary" stuff. [​IMG]

    What have thet released that's really adult contempt-a-tory? Suddenly, I can't think of one. What is adult contemporary anyway?[​IMG]

    I shouldn't jab them too much they putting out the Elton John's I like. I do like their jazz but I'm soft on der klassikers, and everybody else's...

    I didn't want to name names Rachel for fear of offending someone, but I was tinking in the Kenny G.-Michael Bolton vein.

    I was hoping with the Deluxe SACD hybrid treatment that The Who's Tommy and Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road got that future Deluxe Editions would be SACD hybrids too, but instead it's an either/or for The Almman Brothers Fillmore East, Eric Clapton's 461 Ocean Boulevard, and Bob Marley & the Wailers Burnin', and the SACDs don't have the bonus tracks.

    Larry, if Kenny G makes some people happy, maybe they should release him? Do they have him? Bolton has a Sony S-L SACD. I think it's good for the format if they release stuff we don't like. That would mean a broad pattern of releases. What I really fear is a very high % of classical, not a broad pattern.[​IMG]

    100 to 150 out of how many CD's will Universal release in 2005? Perhaps Universal should take the path of making all its new releases for 2005 as hybrid SACDs-something Sony should had done at SACD's initial roll-out. Then the Generation Y kids will discover how crappy MP3s really sound.

    Rachael, that's why I didn't want to name names. Granted, I would be much happier if the lion's share of SACDs were "hippie musice" but that's another thread.
