Works for me . I still have visions of you running through the streets of NYC with a big box of SACDs bad back and all . The things we do to satisfy our Hi-Res obsession especially when its a straight up bargain! As always my pleasure as you'd do the same .

I can't wait for the upcoming Jeff Beck Blow By Blow and Wired SACDs to be released from APO. These both will be a must purchase for me on the day they are released!

The music on this could easily have been used in the film Baraka. Very Indonesian/Balinese. Hopefully it is to your taste.

Sounds well suited for me then I love that film and due to watch any day now. I listen to Dead Can Dance which is one of the track on it. So glad I purchased it.

Thanks

I didn't realise that Elegant Gypsy was on SACD - it is one of my long-time favourite albums.

Yes it is and it is long out of print. I do not have any versions of Elegant Gypsy so I'm looking forward to hearing it.

Bill, I have listened to it for over 35 years.
My wife is the jazz fusion fancier. I would have never found out about it if not for her.
He is one of my favourite artists - the work with John McLaughlin and Paco De Lucia (Friday Night in San Francisco) is another. There is a level of energy and artistry in his work.

I think I'll have to stick to the cassette tape, unless I find we still have the vinyl version.

It's not lossless, but you would never know it. One of the best discs in my collection and a complete no brainer for $15.

Just bought The Best of the Doors 4.0 Quad mix from Importcds with the take10 10% off code.

I agree 100%! I have some excellent multichannel discs both in lossless and lossy. The Division Bell DVD is easily one of the best sounding multichannel discs I own. I wish Andy Jackson had done the DSOTM and the WYWH 5.1 mixes as DB easily bests both IMO. For $14.99 it's a must buy .

Just bought:

Miles Davis - Kind of Blue MOFI SACD. I thought a third SACD version was needed . All kidding aside the MOFI version is supposed to sound very good.

Duke Ellington - Masterpieces by Ellington APO SACD

I just received the Sony SACD release of Miles Davis Kind of Blue and thought it sounded great. I also just got the Sketches of Spain SuperDisc and loved the surround mix! It was a great Miles Davis weekend!

I just got George Benson/Al Jarreau: Givin' It Up Monster SuperDisc. Gave it a spin this morning and it sounded pretty good. Interesting addition of lyrics/vocals by Al Jarreau such as on Long Come Tutu where he sings Miles Davis' trumpet lines from his version on Tutu... Also surprising to hear Sir Paul McCartney on one track! I didn't expect to hear that! All in all, it sounds like it'll be a fine disc for my collection.

I almost got a copy over at the bay for about 3X the price of the above, glad I waited.

Well you never know what happens the next few years, you'll need to sit on them for a bit, sorry!
