Nice choice - I will be awaiting your comments on sq on this one.

BTW, when I was a lad, the AB used to give free concerts in Piedmont Park (Atlanta) and we used to go over and listen to them. They were pretty much unknown at that point. Lot of weed (among other things) passed around freely in those days so I can't remember if we went for the music or ....................rolleyes.gif

Good times! You had The ABB in Atlanta and we had Journey and the other brothers (Doobie) in San Jose before anyone knew them. And a soon forgotten teenage wiz behind the sound board (Me!!)

I am just glad I had enough sense to keep it limited to good times only and not make it a way of life.

The Doobies are another of my favorites - do you have any of their SACDs? Toulouse Street is most excellent.

When I was in college the Allmans had a tour circuit where they would play Shoreline Amphitheater one day, Concord Pavillion the next, and then come back to L.A. and play at the Greek. Lost a few braincells along the way but amazing venues and always a fun road trip. I'm fortunate to have seen them at the Beacon in NY and Red Rocks as well.

Willy,

I'll definitely post my thoughts when I get a chance to listen to it. That must of been incredible to see ABB when Duane was still alive. Fillmore East was the first album I ever bought. But sadly Duane had passed before I got a chance to see them frown.gif. Duane is still my all time favorite guitar player. I'll be picking up the Sky Dog box set next week smile.gif.

Steve,

What year did you see them at Red Rocks? I went to see them there in August of 1990. It was a beautiful night and the moon was rising as the show started. The bad part was my wife was sick so we didn't stay for the whole show.

Have you guys listened to any of Warren Haynes' solo stuff? He is a throwback. Just wish he had some hires stuff out there.

2006, I believe. Allmans on Friday and Mule on Saturday (with Warren and Greg acoustic as opening act). We happened to notice that Dave Matthews Band was playing in Salt Lake on Thursday so we incorporated that into the road trip. Good times.

Anyone know of any good hires music with a lot of japenese flute in it, either stereo or mch? I have heard some jazz recordings with a lot of japanese flutes but never knew artist or recording.

Willy,

Here is a thread from over at the Steve Hoffman forum asking the same question. This is another thread discussing recommendations for the flute in jazz from the SH forum.

Thank you Bill!

Long time no High Rez in the used bins, but I found a goody the other day.

Sam Cooke Portrait Of A Legend 1951-1964. The dodgy old Man And His Music was one of my first CDs back in 1987. I won't part with it but I doubt I'll ever listen again.

Cheers, Michael

Sam Cooke was great. HDTRACKS has a couple of his records for hires download if you are interested. 2 channel of course. They are not great but then who knows what shape the originals were in or even if they came from the originals.

Speaking of old soul music, I would like to see (and hear wink.gif) some Sam & Dave in hires too.

Bowie's Ziggy Stardust SACD in 5.1 is simply astounding.
post #7281 of 9830
Really? Much better sound quality than the CD?

Jeff
post #7282 of 9830
I have been listening to this since the day it came out, and I'm hearing stuff on Ziggy Stardust that I had never heard before. Plus, the soundstage and sense of fullness is just overwhelming. "Five Years" gave me chills.

The only thing comparable, so far are: REM's "Document" and Talking Heads' "More Songs About Building and Food." These discs have just amazed me.

Anyone have the Dire Straits Alchemy Bluray and cares to comment on sq?
post #7285 of 9830
^^ Yes. It's excellent, one of my current favorites. Picture quality is a little soft.

Surround mix?
post #7288 of 9830
yes, it has surround mix. 5.1 96/24

stereo version is 192/24.

has dvd-video versions as well.

looking forward to pooper scoopers review. I haven't endeared myself to this yet.
post #7289 of 9830
Am listening to it now. Will need to play it on in my home theater to make an audio quality and surround mix judgement. Sounds good on my 5.1 computer system though.
post #7290 of 9830
Greetings from Chilly Philadelphia,

Amazing, two posts inside of a week. From the buy one get one half off bins of the Gallery FYE;
Elton John Madman Across The Water Multi-Channel Hybrid SA-CD. I know these get slagged for being overly bright but I only play them for the surround mixes. For stereo listening I look for the old plaid backed MCA issues. My set is almost complete. Now all I need is a five dollar copy of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.

Bob Dylan Street Legal Stereo Hybrid SA-CD Another title that get bashed for the 1998 remix. I guess if I bought the vinyl the day it was released I would be annoyed with the remix but my ears enjoy the mid seventies groove that Dylan was working on Desire and Street Legal.

Here are a few more Dylan Hybrid SA-CDs from the bins that I forgot to post;

Bob Dylan Love & Theft Multi-Channel Hybrid SA-CD
Bob Dylan Bringing It All Back Home Multi-Channel Hybrid SA-CD

Happy Listening, Michael
