What are they?
Jeff Beck's Blow By Blow and Wired.
Lynyrd Skynyrd's Second Helping and Nuthin' Fancy.
Looking forward to Are You Experienced and Axis: Bold As Love later this year...
Counting Crows - August and Everything After
Mardi Gras? Good God....
CCRs and the Beach Boys, Nat King Cole are probably tops for me. Dusty In Memphis, Brubeck's Time Out probably next.
Three words: CCR. Just marvelous.
AP seems to be more adventurous than MoFi, but I prefer their masterings overall slightly less. They contract outside mastering engineers so you really never know exactly what a disc is going to sound like. I'm just glad they embrace jazz and classical more than MoFi does.
On a different note, does anyone know why all the major audiophile labels seem to have come to a hault with releases lately? It seems like it's been forever since something new came out.
careful i almost started hallucinating. how could i have missed that. phew.
Limited SACD manufacturing capacity may be the reason.
All of their Living Stereo and Decca classical discs that I have heard are superb. Since buying many of these discs I find the old BMG Living Stereo SACDs to pale in comparison.
Sonny Rollins Saxophone Colossus
Jakie McLean - New Soil
Sounds like a good project for Chad Kassem
Miles Davis- Relaxin
While I like the SACD format I don't see myself buying anymore. I don't listen to SACD's all that often. Primarily consume my music through: records, CD's, streaming, Mp3 and FLAC.
I really love the Blue Note titles they reissued.
NKC and CCR, of course. But how about Patsy Cline - Greatest Hits. The SRV Texas Hurricane set is also nice. John Lee Hooker - It Serve You Right to Suffer. Junior Wells - Hoodoo Man Blues. Johnny Hartman - The Voice That Is! And a few more that I'd like to hear but haven't yet, Johnny Hartman - Once in Every Life and Harry Belafonte - Live At Carnegie Deli and Sings the Blues.
The Nat King Cole Story is scary good.
Did you forget to post what your favorites were?
No, I didn't. I am asking for people's favorites because I own very few AP SACDs and I am considering buying some, especially the jazz titles.
These jazz titles come into my mind quickly.
Blues and the Abstract Truth
The Black Saint and The Sinner Lady
Out of the cool
Out of the Afternoon
Introducing Johnny Griffin
The first two on your list I ordered last night, along with the Coltrane/Ellington SACD
MY DCC is scary good as well. Have you compared them?
Ella-- Like Someone in Love
Ike Quebec-- Blue and Sentimental
Miles-- Seven Steps to Heaven
Holly Cole-- Temptation
Bill Evans-- Moon Beams
I don't think Nat King Cole Story was on DCC?
Are you sure? Steve Hoffman remastered the AP version.
