Never picked this up yet. Did it come in Mini-LP? How is the sound?
What do you mean "discuss."
I picked this up last month and actually did not like the sound. There were many people here who have said the Neil young remasters sounded better than Decade, so I picked it up.
I have had it for a couple of years and I love the sound. I listen to the 24 bit 96 khz version the most.
The high res audio is outstanding. Definitely worth the extra cost.
It is in a digipak - no trays (CD + DVD). The DVD is excellent
DVD is a little bit loud, but it's definitely better sounding disc than Decade CD.
When I'm tired in the evening I play Decade, it's quiet, that's why I like 80's CDs.
Any other time i prefer GH DVD. It also has cool pictures + 2 videos.
Mine is usual double jewel case.
I bought mine at Wal Mart, it came in a slim double jewel case.
Yes, so is mine. And for $8.88, you can't beat the price.
Every time I see it, it's in a jewel case. Looking for digipack/MiniLP.
with "Le Noise" out now, when is he gonna put out Vol. 2?
I wish it was in a digipak. Mine was in a boring standard jewel case.
I prefer SACD, but the CD + 24/96 DVD release is very pragmatic. I have ripped the DVD to 24/96 FLAC and play them on my PC connected to a DAC. I think the sound is very smooth, especially in hi-rez.
Why couldn't the 1st four remasters been done this way (cd+24/96 DVD)?A colossal missed opportunity! Another case of Neil handicapping his classic material while pushing the "new" material in the highest fidelity possible
I only have the CD, sounds excellent to me. As for track listing, I prefer Decade as a better summary of Neil's career, even though it only goes through 1977, since it shows off more of Neil's quirkier side (Soldier, Campaigner, The Old Laughing Lady, For the Turnstiles, etc.)
Got mine (CD + DVD) when it came out, and was packaged in a jewel case here in the UK. Also got the Classic records vinyl version. All sound great to me, but the vinyl sounds the best.
My only gripe with the album is that Neil could have included something from his later work(nothing after Harvest Moon).
Don't think that's the case, I imagine it's just not economically worth it as DVD audio just failed to catch on. Neil's first four albums were supposed to receive bluray releases but that has yet to materialise.
As for his new material, Le Noise and Fork in the Road didn't receive any hi rez audio release that I know of as yet, both CDs weren't even hdcd encoded.
It's actually not a DVD-Audio in the greatest hits package; it is just a regular DVD-V that utilizes 24/96 PCM audio. Kind of like the old Classic Records DAD discs.
Same scenario with the Sugar Mountain release....
Never seen a digi-pak package, I prefer the jewel case anyways...
I don't lament the inclusion of more recent material, but it is missing "Revolution Blues", one of my favorite tunes.
my 'Fork in the road' has a 96/24 Stereo DVDV in the package ? thats pretty hi rez
I have the hdcd and it sounds fantastic! The DVD-audio would sound awesome I'll imagine
My mistake, I certainly didn't see it at retail where I am.
the reasoning behind the tracklisting is very clearly spelled out on the cover. It is strictly a "greatest hits".
