Very nice. I went over to a friends place and her father gave me his copy with the original cover along with probably played ONCE original "Michael Jackson - Thriller"

My copy of Skynyrd should be here by Friday smile.gif

I would pull mine out, but the LPs are buried deep.

I like your avatar... is that by chance the finish of the Peachtree Road Race?

I have the Mofi cd of Second Helping and enjoy this one more than that excellent mater. Unfortunately I don't seem to have kept Skynyrd on 8 track. I find it interesting what I was listening to back in the day in my 65 Mustang. I have a special memory of sitting with Bob Burns playing drums at one of my high school buddies garage in 73. Sure wish I had the appreciation of what they would become.

A great addition to my collection and a must have for the DVD-A tracks. The video is interesting but not anything special. The multichannel tracks are what make this set worth getting for anyone who likes the old southern rock. The song "Gimme Back My Bullets" got me through being dumped by my girlfriend when I went off to play football in college. I nearly wore that album out and irritated the crap out of my roommate.

No Robin Trower in that case? Allman Brothers? Captain Beyond? Mott the Hoople?biggrin.gif

My dad had a 1970 Chrysler that had an 8 track player. When I had "hot dates", I would take his car and a few of my favorite 8 tracks.

I ordered my copy online and will post comments ASAP.
Cheers, Michael

Thanks for the link; it still works!

Not quite my type of sound, but overall pretty good.

And 3 discs at the low low total price of about $12, including DVD-Audio 3rd disc! What's not to like about that?

During that phase of my life when 8-track tapes were popular, I had Aerosmith, Montrose, Kiss, Nazareth, Mott the Hoople, Captain Beyond, Rush among others on 8-track. Cruising in my '71 Mustang and blasting Aerosmith on my 8-track player, that brings back memories.

Some people have been reporting that the Disc 3 DVD-A is defective. Has anyone around here been having problems? Mine has been fine but I've only listened in stereo, not 5.1.

What is the reported defect? I listened to the DVD-A just once and it sounded good but not as good as a number of MCH DVD-As I already have.

My disc 3 (i.e. the 5.1 DVD-A disc) seems to be OK; at least I played thru all 10 of the tunes, but only in the loss-less 5.1 DVD-A format, and not thru the DVD-Video encoding that is also on disc 3.

My disc 1 (CD (stereo, standard redbook)) is also OK.

I've yet to play disc 2 (which is in DVD-Video encoding)

Have listened to my Disc 3 (DVD-A) several times - sounds great. Course I now have XT32 on my rig and just about everything sounds good. wink.gif

No problem here. I've listened to it a half-dozen times.

Anyone listened to the Neil Young AMERICANA Blu-Ray yet? I think it is only a 2 channel 24/192 mix but it still might be worthwhile if well done. Any thoughts on why there is not a DTS HD MA track? Was wondering if I could wait and get a hi res multichannel mix at some point soon.

EDIT: Oooops........Posted on wrong thread. Moved to Hi Res Purchase thread.

It wouldn't play on some machines, though they were in the minority. I was just curious if anyone here had any problems. I've gotten so many multi disc sets lately I haven't had a chance to listen to everything in stereo and MCH.

Nice problem to have- huh? Really, there's been a real spike in surround offerings- I'm feeling very grateful right now. SW did hid magic on the 2 ELP sets- and at give or take $15 a set, with DVD-a !!! quite an unexpected treat and great value (compare to opportunistic, milk em for all they got recent deluxe sets), but then this Skynyrd set is a steal at $12! I had never seen the Old Grey Whistle Test disc, so that's a real bonus (even though the sound is less than stellar, still quite the historical document). But I would have expected to pay more than the asking price for the dvd-a alone- great mix, awesome sound. A real jewel.

My surround jones has been completely satisfied for a while- and at such reasonable rates. Just wondering why this can't be done with more classic archives. I know many multi's have been lost, but there's still a lot of sublime music waiting to be given its ultimate presentation. If they can profitably put out high-value sets like Skynyrd and ELP- with dvd-a's- then there's hope in the surround camp yet. If Sony can release a dvd-a, perhaps there's some sign of intelligence in the recording industry- just enough to realize they can make a nice little bit on our niche market to help tide them over until their inevitable demise.

Here's hoping these sets sell like hotcakes- it sure was hard to find southern surroundings, but well worth the wait. Highly recommended for anyone still fence-sitting; get em while they last.

I think what is going on here is the labels had been sitting on these surround mixes for years, and figured to get them out on the market before physical media for music is completely dead. That's why these releases seem like such good values, the surround mixes are basically sunk costs at this time and the labels would rather make a few dollars off them now than nothing in the future.

What are you saying, they're rushing these things out before the people who still buy physical media die off? biggrin.gif

That could be true but in the case of the Skynyrd DVD-A the surround mix was done recently by Elliott Scheiner. A number of the latest 5.1 releases have been done by Steve Wilson as well. So it appears to me that many of the recent 5.1 mixes are new and not ones that were in the vaults.

All I have to say is thank the gods that SW is one of the very few that is actually turning out new surround music, in addition to all his other projects remixing surround releases from older material.

The hi-res layer won't play on my Pioneer 610. The lossy 5.1 plays fine.
I have the same issue with the Rush Sector DVD-As with this player. Older DVD-As play fine.

I finally got around to listening to the surround mix of this album. I did have a problem playing it when I tried accessing it on screen. Clicking on surround only brought up the stereo mix. When I used my remote (Oppo 95/ Denon 4308) the surround played fine. Maybe this is the problem people were having?

I made a joke about Free Bird earlier in the thread but I have to admit this is easily the best I've ever heard it. I've never been able to distinguish the individual guitars like this before. Elliot did an excellent job. Gonna have to start listening to it again!

AFAIK, either the lossy menu or lossless menu comes up, not both, depending on the player. I only get the lossless menu on my Oppo.

Boo. Just picked up this disc recently, and was about to finally pull the trigger on the 610 so I could hear the high res surround mix. I guess it's back to saving up for the Oppo. frown.gif

FWIW, a poster on the Blu-Ray forums says the Skynyrd disc plays fine on his 610, so YMMV.

That might be the case with some releases, but the 2 ELP dvd-a's were obviously just re-done. And they were very reasonably priced. Still, I hope you're right and that the studios will release all the surround mixes they have before the "death of the disc." So many quad mixes that are just waiting in the vaults... get 'em out!

I just checked disc 3 DVD-A/V on my Pioneer DV 610AV and the multichannel layer plays fine. The AVR info states Multi Channel In, PCM, 96 kHz, 3/2/.1.

When I tried the stereo layer, it too played fine - PCM, 96 kHz, 2/0/.0.

I had problems with my Pioneer 563 not playing a couple of my discs and a firmware upgrade fixed it and have not had any problems since.
