The Commodores is an outstanding idea.
I think at least one of the Judees will beat it. There's a little delay with Heart Food. The film lam on the jackets got screwed up and there's another minor hiccup being remedied, but Judee 1 is looking on track for July and I'm calling Gilded Palace SACD August but am hoping for sooner.
I don't typically do this as sometimes things till go wrong at the last minute, but I'm too excited about this to keep it in. Week after next i"m with Kevin Gray cutting Billy Squier's Don't Say No from the original master tapes! This album had a HUGE footprint on my early youth, he was my AC/DC!
Really? I think it's one of Ferry's lesser albums. It treads water rather than moving ahead. About the only song I really like is Wildcat Days.
while it's fine on the surface (like Avalon ks has a marvelous texture), the material itself is weak.
Wow, GREAT album!
Hope this one shows up on SACD
Thanks! Next question....when will it be released?
Real Gone did Back Stabbers on vinyl last year - Real Gone Music - News - O’JAYS: Back Stabbers (Limited 180-Gram Black Vinyl Edition) LP
Too bad about SACD's, I personally would buy them in a heartbeat!
Have you considered Blinker The Star's "August Everywhere"? It's dying for vinyl, pretty much made for it, and I know that there is fan interest - as well as interest from those who created it - but... labels.
Funny how people's tastes can vary so much! While my comment was only meant to suggest Mamouna would be my first priority among the three I mentioned, it also happens to be my favorite Ferry solo album overall. I love the material--to me it is richly evocative, perfectly suiting the lushly textured arrangements. I don't think he has ever sounded as heartbreakingly sincere as in "Which Way to Turn," or as mysterious and ethereal as in "The Only Face," or as sensually exotic as in the title track. I would agree that it treads water in that it is clearly a very close cousin to Avalon--I just don't mind that at all in this case. But I've noticed that you and I have several artists we admire in common, but frequently disagree about the relative merits of their individual works.
It's what makes the world interesting!
Big Piper fan?
I'd buy it. Just curious, how do you determine which ones to put in SACD knowing it is a niche market?
I can only do SACDs. I have not owned vinyl in years.
That applies to me too.
Though all of my audiophile friends are trying to push me back towards vinyl
I'm not going back to vinyl. I'm sticking to CDs and SACDs.
I am a bit ( not a lot) tempted because everything they play on vinyl sounds great.
But so do most of my SACDs and the thought of getting my old turntable properly set-up (or maybe replaced), then the search for a nice phono stage to listen to pops and clicks is not that appealing.
Given the choice I'd rather drop $25 or $30 an a nice SACD.
But, having said all that, I expect I'll buckle and end up doing it anyway
Add in the warping, ring wear on old covers, expensive cleaners. Does that convince you?
I'm in, if this will be on SACD. If vinyl only, I'll pass.
That album was seemingly everywhere for a year or so after its release! It's virtually a greatest hits record for him. The synths kinda date it, but it has a big punchy drums 'n guitar sound.
There appears to be some anti-vinyl bias here. I have no problem with digital, but if I may share a quote from the Intervention Records website:
Records sound the best, period. Vinyl records are the best, most consistent way of producing the emotional thrills and chills that happen when you feel like you’re attending a performance. This emotional sensation can be achieved even with studio recordings when the source allows it, and vinyl playback is the most reliable and durable way to deliver this mainline hit of musical emotion time and time again for decades.
Put me down for some high quality soul reissues as well! SACD or vinyl, but I'd prefer vinyl. And I agree with Shane, I think the general target audience (meaning people who aren't members of this forum or ones who would call themselves "audiophiles") would prefer vinyl over SACD.
I'm not anti-vinyl. I have a wall of vinyl and occasionally buy new LPs. But for space constraints, I prefer digital nowadays.
I am on this thread because Intervention Records has released an SACD, and another SACD is due for release circa August. Either Intervention Records is in the SACD game or they're not. If Shane says they will issue some SACDs in the future, I'm still interested. If Shane gives up on SACDs, I hope he will tell us he's going vinyl-only, so those of us interested in SACD can un-follow this thread.
Very confident in August release. You will LOVE this record!
I am very fortunate to have a GREAT distributor, and they are having some increased success with audiophile SACDs. I made a mistake in publishing Stealers Wheel in a mini "old style" jacket. I loved it because I was so proud of our restoration on that cover art, but people who bought it hated it. so my future releases will be in super jewel boxes, and if people buy them I'll make more. So, I'll still be selective on SACDs, but it looks like my sales channel for those is bigger now so it looks better than it did a while ago. Longwinded way of saying I'm not getting out of SACD, but most likely increasing my footprint there.
