Has anyone picked up the Best of Rory Gallagher - Big Guns on SACD? How's the SQ and mix of songs. I find it selling for $30.99 on TowerRecords, any better prices out there, this seems a bit steep, even for a two disc title.

I picked it up, but was not too impressed. You may want to read the user reviews at sa-cd.net.

I haven't heard it yet but you can get it for a lot cheaper. CD WOW (UK) has it for about $11.

Thanks for the info. I'll prob pass. Sounds like this is one of those, let's make a quick buck kind of releases. I have plenty of Rory on CD.

I got this set and like it really well. I don't have any Rory Gallagher on CD to compare and really haven't listened to much of his music over the years but this guy really is good. Sonics are less than stellar for SACD but acceptable and I have to believe better than the redbook CD but that would have to only be a guess on my part. Uninspired surround mix with great packaging, I can recommend it but understand anybody with a redbook CD of these songs could probably find a better way to spend some money. It will get a lot of play here, how have I missed this guy over all these years?
