It’s been awhile since I’ve done any kind of notice for any SACDs arriving out of the Japan marketplace. However, a few readers have privately emailed me and asked why. Personally, I’ve been underwhelmed by any of the SACDs (that I have purchased). I was especially put off by the assembly line feel of the SACD of Argus by Wishbone Ash. Nevertheless, there are still SHM-SACD product arriving from Japan although at a slower pace.
Nevertheless, Steve Talia has reported on some of these titles in his Talia’s Overflow Notes column found in our pages throughout any given month.
For today’s post, there are the following titles:
- Regatta De Blanc – Police
- Breakfast In America – Supertramp
- Never Mind The Bollacks, Here’s The Sex Pistols – The Sex Pistols
- Every Picture Tells A Story – Rod Stewart
- Disraeli Gears – Cream
- Zoot Sims And The Gershwin Brothers
These titles are planned for November 27. They will be housed in the popular mini-LP style casing.
And while we’re here, how does people feel about SACDs these days? I know that some of you really like the 5.1 aspect and there is so little of those going around largely due to the cost of doing it. Still, Stereo SACDs are pretty cool. I wish that we can get good SACDs of Springsteen albums, later-era Rolling Stones (and not the Japan SMH-SACDs either, unless you guys feel they do the titles justice. Then, I might try one), early-era Foghat, and more. Also, they could finish out the Eric Clapton SACDs. I really would like a No Reason To Cry SACD.
Also, I’m trying to acquire a cheap(er) copy of the No Secrets DVD-Audio by Carly Simon. Ohh, the things we let go by us, only to want them later! And a special nod to David Rowe (no relation) for allowing me to listen to his copy of No Secrets for sooooo long before I returned it. I’ll always be thankful for that.
