I refuse to buy SACDs of albums that I already have on vinyl, cassette and CD. However, to answer your question I like "Blue Country Heart" by Jorma Kaukonen. It's very bluegrass, singer/songwriter stuff that I like. I also agree with both choices from Theo.
The CCR's are really good. Autumn Shuffle by Peder Af Uglass too.SRV's Texas Flood is to die for. Junior Well- Come On In This House is good. Lots more. Slowhand. I prefer DVD-A's though as I can rip those to my computer.
Also just got the SACD of Who's Next...phenomenal improvement. Vermonter (System | Threads | Answers | This Thread)
I have heard the SACD version of Who's Next in my system, and the Canadian CD (MCA Records, MCABD 37217) mastered by Steve Hoffman makes the SACD seem anemic by comparison. You will be wowed by the fidelity, dynamics and power on this release.
Hi Edorr, I am enjoying the Chick Corea discs right now as well. Picked it up on eBay at crazy low price. Before receiving it,I was doubting how the sound quality would be. I paid something like 8 bucks plus shipping for a double sacd and it was being shipped from China!I had very low expectations. What an amazing surprise.Wonderful sounding live recording with some terrific music.
I saw the china copy listed on ebay as well. You can also get the complete 8 (I believe) DVDs series . I have it, but I keep coming back to the SACD, becuase they picked some excellent tracks and the sound quality is so much better.
If you're into this stuff, you may also want to pick up a MCH SACD copy of Michel Camilo live at the Blue Note. It won a grammy for best latin jazz album and is excellent (recording and content).
Hi Edorr, This Chick Corea is a domestic Concord.It was shipped from China. You just never know however until you play it and listen. Purchased it only because of the price so literally had no expectations. Great find and highly recommended. Thank you for the other suggestion.
The abco Rolling Stones reissues. I grew up with the 80s cd issues and not the 60s vinyl. I bought a SACD player when these came out and heard so much more in these tracks that wasnt audible on the earlier CDs like piano and percussion parts I didnt even know existed.
