    Please also let us know if the album cover may be different somehow.

    Hard to believe there is still no artwork included on Amazon & Bull Moose.

    Does it include the Patti Smith poem that came with the first pressing?

    And where's the band-aid?

    I'm looking forward to hearing about the SQ on this one as it's one of my faves and for digital my go-to is the old 80s Castle one but I'd love a better sounding version.

    Yeh, that's the fellow. Wasn't there also a postcard to send in for having your name on the Todd album poster too?

    Thank GOD the cover is the same.
    I was frantic about that.

    Seeing the Bearsville label takes me way back...

    Sent them an email asking why other folks were getting theirs today. They responded they won't ship until next Friday since I ordered S/A along with it. Makes sense but.... :cry:

    I came home after five days in Montego Bay and my Sony has decided it won’t read SACD. I’ve tried Dylan's Slow Train Coming, The Rolling Stones Now!, Layla and the Todd cd and the SACD light does not come on. Looks like I’ll be visiting Crutchfield tonight.
     
  20. It’s a known problem with the chips that were used in some of the Sony machines. At some point they fail to recognize the SACD layer of the disc. Sony will not repair these units. I think there is a thread about it in the gear forum. Happened to my 5 disc SonyES player a few years ago.

    Thanks. Mine is also a 5cd player, which is kind of unneeded. I’ve had it for around 10years so probably time to go.

    I'm more annoyed that 'Never Never Land' is the only song with a track timing listed. That's just weird.

    The lyric sheet has print so tiny, I don't think I could read it with an electron microscope!

    The music may be even smaller considering there have been no audio reviews. ;)

    Due to limitations imposed by keeping peace in the household, my opinion on this release will have to wait until my wife leaves the premises in order to be able to hear this at the proper volume level it deserves for a meaningful evaluation.

    I apologize in advance for the delay in response.
