Yes. I have several HDCD CD's that are unmarked, but what you really want to do is check out www.hdcd.com. They list all of the CD's available in HDCD encoding. Good luck.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one to notice this. Thanks for replying to my question. The cd's I listed above were checked on the HDCD web-site and I think the only one that was listed was the Faith No More disc. The others were not. If anyone else has found discs that are encoded but not marked please post them so I can maybe check into buying them. Thanks
I did a lot of research into the subject.
For stupid reasons, many CDs were digitally marked as HDCD, but do not take advantage of any of the features of HDCD such as dynamic range expansion or filtering.
In essence, they are plain-Jane CDs that happen to light up the HDCD light.
If you search here on agon you can find my thread with links.
unmarked HDCD'sMany around, I love what HDCD does and am in constant search form them s/h.
I've got a two Patrica Barber Nightclub from Premonition, same recording session but with and without HDCD. The HDCD kills the non HDCD
From what I remember Prof Keith Johnson saying once make sure though that your cdp/dac has a proper Pacfic Mircosonics Development PMD100 or PMD200 hdcd chip in it, otherwise it's just doing a dsp flag reco to the bring the light on and not doing what it should.
I realize there isn't much interest around here in Latin Jazz (my favorite music!;) But Cuban sax virtuoso Paquito D'Rivera embraced HDCD and released over 1/2 dz. Also, West coast bandleader and master percussionist John Santos & his Machete Ensemble released a bunch. Fantastic music for the more adventurous music-lover!
Well, I’d say it looks about 90% rock on here but there are others that are into Latin Music, If Latin includes Brazil and Argentina I am .
Also listen to Mexican music in my car often, it seems full of life even if I understand only 1 word in ten !
Latin Music been around a long time on west coast, a band I liked was led by Russ Gomex in the 60’s, a fine musician who could tackle anything .
If you want to talk Classical music, South American is crawling with great composers and musicians who like everything else in South American never make a blip on US radar unless it makes Latins look bad .
