    I haven't bought a hi-rez disc in ages. I am beginning to think nothing of interest will ever come out again, despite rumors to the contrary.

    Well I finally "scrounged up" a copy of Diana Krall's The Girl in the Other Room. Sonically enjoyable, but I'm still trying to determine how much I like it [​IMG]

    I do plan on buying the Shostakovich and Genesis' Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (though that may be pushed back because Mike & the Mechanics have a new album coming out). But whatever happened to Surf's Up and In The Court Of The Crimson King? how come Sony hasn't released any "oldies" lately?

    I just got "Regatta De Blanc" by the Police and it's far better than the standard A&M CD. I have it on vinyl but it's pretty beat up.

    I've had "Bob James in Hi Fi" and I wasn't impressed. I guess it boils down to the source tape for that disc, especially the

    Creed Taylor produced tracks.

    Lee, I'd call the Bob James one of AF's weaker releases. It just doesn't sound as good or even close to the vinyl releases of days gone by to me. Maybe the master tapes were abused, neglected?

    Just received the new David Sanborn. Listened to it once. Very good production and pretty good jazz which is a bit on the lite side but very much better than what you hear on "Lite Jazz" FM stations.

    The David Sanborn SACD sounds like a "Buy" for me. I was debating whether to get the Bob James or the David Sanborn SACD the other day.

    Still haven't listen to the Bob James disc.

    I'd take the Sanborn disc over the Bob James in every respect and most especially in sonics. The BJ disc lacks fire...it's a notch or two down from the vinyl I compared it to. It's hard to say that about a Hoffman done disc, but dat's da facts jack, as I hear 'em anyway...

    Received this week:

    Bartok - Concerto for Orchestra etc. on Hungaroton

    Prokofiev - Romeo & Juliet on Telarc (this is the Parvi disc that's gotten so many good reviews)

    They're both fantastic. I have to admit, I haven't had much chance to listen on SACD (except about half of the Prokofiev last night). The RB layers are fantastic. The music is wonderful, lovely, exciting, powerful, sweet...

    Ordered this week:

    Sting - Brand New Day

    It's one of my wife's favorite discs on RB & I hope she likes it more on SACD. I ordered it from Deep Discount CD. The status has been "back order" for over a week. Maybe I'll cancel the order & get it from circuitcity.com like I should have done to begin with...

    Doug
