Joe Walsh: So What        (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
  November 20, 2015

I have this album on vinyl and CD and was interested to hear this remixed SACD. This is a bit of a quirky album to be sure with Joe exercising some orchestral talent with Pavane and Song for Emma then flipping 180 with All Night Laundry Mat Blues which does not quite fit...however...they do sound ... more
Eagles: Hotel California        (5 of 5 found this review helpful)
  June 4, 2015

I'm slowly (too slowly) building up my SACD collection and Hotel California has been on my wish list for some time. I own the vinyl and the CD but alas not the DVD-A. I borrowed a friend's SACD of this album some months back and recall that whilst it was ok, I wasn't blown away. I finally got my ... more

I've not previously owned this album but do like Bryan Ferry from his "Let's Get Together" and "In Your Mind" era. This SACD is rare and expensive. The reviews here are opinions of people I do ... more

This High Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-Ray edition does sound quite muddy on quite a few tracks. Having said that, I do not have any previous CDs, vinyl etc to compare it to. My disc has an additional bonus track (track 8 "Easy Skanking) making 16 tracks in total. If you're a Bob Marly fan, you'll no ... more

Nice post...mirrors almost exactly my point of view as's about the joy of high quality music. I'd just like to add it isn't easy obtaining the rock/pop SACDs in NZ unless I want to pay obscene shipping prices and put up with 2 months+ delivery time frames. Blu Ray Pure Audio discs, on the other hand are being arbitrarily stocked at ... more
