    I was puzzled that the Maurice Abravanel SACD of Vaughan Williams music is OOP. Thankfully I found a copy. But a search of Amazon shows there were originally 9 Vanguard SACDs, but only 1 is in print. What gives here? Surely they can't be bailing out of the SACD format just because I finally purchased a transport.

    They're still behind Super Audio. I have heard that they are working on new releases. I found the Everest Corroboree in print and at Media Play and it is my new classical reference disc.

    What may be happening is that a few titles were created in small batches and the label has temporarily run out. This happened some times with Chesky in the early days. Doing a new run is no big deal, though...
