I recall a review of the Layla album in book called "Rock Music on Compact Disc" or something to that effect that I bought at the dawn of the CD era. They basically called the album dated and harsh. But, I have to agree with you, Luke, I find the album to be a pretty straight forward, live and hones...

Nope, mono. But with killer bass.

I've seen the OB stereo sleeve, but had always assumed it was rechanneled...

Re: Tommy: Deluxe Edition details

Universal / Geffen release a hybrid CD / SACD version of Tommy on Oct 28. The 'Deluxe' version features the album in stereo (taken from the original stereo masters) and 5.1 surround sound (for those with SACD compatible players) mixed by Pete from the original eight-track tapes. A DVD-A version may...

Well, I'll state the obvious, Sony *needs* to do something with the Springsteen catalog. That said, I think the labels should seriously consider releasing all future DE's in SACD hybrid format. I'm reluctant to buy CD reissues these days, because I know that some hi-rez reissue of the same title has...

Before we agree not to discuss this further, what exactly are the differences between the DSOTM UD and UDII??? I've heard all kinds of grumblings that the UD's were better, no the UDII's are better, etc. I always believed the only differences were that MoFi used a different plant to press the UDII'...

<<Don't forget the DRAMATIC DIFFERENCES between the Ultradisc and Ultradisc II!>> <<BTW, what's the difference between the longbox gold CD and the non-longbox gold CD? They should be the same, right? Mastered by Doug Sax and/or Gavin Lurssen? As for the half speed LP...there were two catalog #s, but...

I second any recommendation for SACD, only I, personally, don't see any need for Beatles in 5.1. Give me mono/stereo hybrids, from the original mixes (not the Help and Rubber Soul '80's remixes), done right. That's all I ask.

I had been waiting anxiously for hi-res digital for years. And now that's it's finally accessible, I don't think it's going to last. I recently bought $500 Philips DVD963SA SACD player, and while some of the SACD's I've listened to are phenomenal, you'd have to be an audiophile to really appreciate ...
