Discussion: Grover Washington Jr.: Winelight

As of this writing, SA-CD.net has this listed as unreleased. This has been released and I just listened to it. It is a very excellent release. I can only speak to the stereo SACD layer because that is all I am set up to listen to. I did compare it to the long OOP DVD-A and to these ears it sounds the same. There has never been a problem with the DVD-A but the George Benson Breezin' SACD recently released by Audio Fidelity was superior in my opinion, so I thought the same would be the case with Winelight. Given that the multi-channel layers on both of these (SACD and DVD-A) are from the same source, I highly suspect that they are going to sound the same too. If you do not have the DVD-A and have any interest in Grover's Winelight, get this immediately. If you have the DVD-A, I see no reason to get the SACD. I wish I had known this prior to ordering but sometimes you win and sometimes you don't. I hope this has been helpful to some. I do understand releasing this since the DVD-A has long been OOP but I wish that some other titles are released and not the same ones over and over again. I did not purchase the latest Blood Sweat and Tears Audio Fidelity SACD. I already have the Columbia SACD and the MOFI SACD of this title and though the MOFI was better than the Columbia, I do not think I need 3 SACDs of the same title. There are plenty of great albums that have not had an SACD release, go with those please, if anyone is listening.

The Benson DVD~A 5.1 was an absolute mess and I concur that the remastered AF SACD is superior. Will pass on the Winelight SACD as I have the DVD~A which is superb.

Can't wait to see what AF has up their sleeves in the coming months. The upcoming Earth, Wind and Fire (Open Your Eyes) should be a real treat and if the AF 5.1 SACD of America's Homecoming is anything like the DVD~A 5.1.....a NO brainer purchase.

Would really love to see "The Worst of The Jefferson Airplane" based on the 4.0 Quad master be released at some point as there is NO Jefferson Airplane on SACD (nor DVD~A.....just Quad Open Reel).

I'd rather see Jefferson Starship "Red Octopus" ; but I'd certainly get "The Worst of The Jefferson Airplane" . I'd like a stereo SACD of "Surrealistic Airplane"

BTW: Looking forward to Winelight.
