Peter Gabriel !
I left out Peter Gabriel by mistake. One of my favorite artists.
Those of you turntable fans out there check out his new vinyl releases on Classic Records. They are very good.
No word on which album yet, huh? His first, third, or So would be perfect, but I'll take any of it!
Red Trumpet says to watch for updates on web or by newsletter. Maybe we should sign up for the title announcements...
Hybrids, I hope?
Does Universal include A&M? If so, any mention of Procol Harum?
And what are the "titles already announced"?
I believe they are hybrids.
Titles already announced include the Al Jarreau and Natalie Cole (top 2 stories) at www.vervemusicgroup.com
This is the Universal announcement...
These are the titles...
Some of the initial UMG titles slated for release on Super Audio CD include: Diana Krall -- The Look of Love, Andrea Bocelli -- Cieli di Toscana, Ja Rule -- Pain Is Love, Shelby Lynne -- Love Shelby, John Coltrane -- My Favorite Things, ET -- The 20th Anniversary Soundtrack, Steely Dan -- Gaucho, The Allman Brothers Band -- Live at the Fillmore East, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong -- Ella & Louis, Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto -- Getz & Gilberto, and Muddy Waters -- Folksinger.
Many of these were held up by the Stones release.
Great news! I am very much looking forward to Diana Krall, John Coltrane, Peter Gabriel, Steely Dan, and Bon Jovi on SACD! I too hope that Peter Gabriel So will come to SACD. I just bought the remastered CD the other day (only $9.99 at Best Buy this week!), and it is great. I'd love to hear that album on SACD.
Of course, Lee, I will believe it when I see it!
Lee, I was so pleased to see So advertised for $9.99 in the Best Buy flier in last Sunday's paper. It is $15.99 there normally. I check the Best Buy flier for sale CDs every Sunday, and most of the time, I find nothing I want. Unfortunately, they always have a bunch of hip-hop stuff for $6.99 and $7.99 every week, but rarely music I want at that price. I'll keep checking though. Last week, I bought the new Jimi Hendrix Experience Smash Hits disc at Best Buy for $6.99, as advertised. A couple months back, they advertised The Best of Christopher Cross for $7.99, and I didn't hesitate to grab it at that price. There are bargains to be had every so often.
On another subject, I have been listening to the Diana Krall The Look of Love CD tonight. Although I wish the album offered a mix of slow songs and songs with a kick, I love the music. I'm sure this album would sound outstanding on SACD. I can't wait for this one on SACD...if it actually ever comes out.
Lee, I have read many comments saying that Krall's The Look of Love is not one of her better efforts, but it is the only album of her's that I have at this point. Didn't she win a Grammy for The Look of Love? I seem to think I saw a gold sticker indicating that on some copies of the CD in stores. Regardless, the SACD of this album should be a real treat.
Keith, try to get your hands on "When I Look Into Your Eyes". I have both albums and find this one to be much better. There aren't many "upbeat" songs on this one either, but the pacing is not quite as slow as "The Look of Love".
If you like Diana, check out her "Live in Paris" DVD. Not only does it have an EXCELLENT DTS mix, but it is in widescreen format. It is an excellent showcase of her material that looks and sounds great. A true HTF seal of approval
By the way, I must say that if I was faced with the choice of listening to her music without physically seeing her, against getting to ogle her on screen, I would choose the latter every time!
Evan, thanks for the Krall suggestion. Much appreciated. I agree with you 100% regarding the preference for video of Diana Krall.
