What a revelation! I was never a great Elton John fan even though I quite liked some of his songs but after listening to this SACD version of Honky chateau, I am a convert. This was a good SACD album to try as I have the standard CD version of it and the SACD version leaves it for dead, IMO. There ... more

I would imagine that if they remastered the Beatles collection for SACD, so that it could be played on a normal CD player as well, that the collection would be the biggest selling SACD's ever. Really, the original release of the Beatles collection was mediocre at best and if they remastered them I believe that they would sell very well. I love the ... more
