I didnt find it locally.
Sony sent an e-mail with new releases and I preordered there.
The transaction was a little weird. Kind of hard to explain, but they sent me an e-mail (dated 3/6) saying that it got shipped out late and they were sorry it would be there late, but when I got home it was in my mailbox.
I ordered it on 3/1, it wasnt supposed to be released until 3/6 which was the day I recieved it. Cant figure out why they were apologetic about things.

There's just a handful of SACDs out that make me want to pull the trigger on a $500-$1000 disc player. If the Pink Floyd catalog were to come out that would be an easy buy then. Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall ...

Bray,

Interesting...Found and bought a copy yesterday at Short Circuit City for $9.99 ...

I also have it here at work today...I'm liking what I hear...just wish it had a bit more of his electric work on it...but the acoustic work is very fine.

Also, saw "The Wall" on DVD (I don't remember if it was the concert or the movie) at Sam's for $12.99...will have to go back and investigate further...

I've been enjoying the album for a couple of days now, thanks again for the info Bray. It's pretty good, although very mellow. It's great for a quiet night at home with the Axioms.

I listen to most CDs with in 2-Channel analog direct bypass, but this one I like with the full setup running under the Logic7 mode. It gives it great ambiance, especially for the beginning of the album.

I bought the CD at Best Buy on sale and was surprised it came with a bonus disc containing a single additional track, "Island Jam". A nice slow blues jam that I think should have made it onto the album.

I bought this yesterday and listened to it on the way home (300 mile trip). Didn’t quite make it through the whole CD as it damn near put me to sleep.

I like Floyd, but this one is just tooooo slow……….I had to pop in Dark Side of the Moon to wake me up (bought the SACD).

Agreed.
It is a bit to mellow for my taste too.
It isnt bad, just not what I was expecting.
