I touched on these prices in another thread about multi-channel SACDs and DVD-A, wishing that I'd bought everything that I had in my hands in the shop at one time or another.

Like: the Eagles Hotel California DVD-A, Steely Dan's Two Against Nature, Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, and the granddaddy of 'em all, Led Zeppelin's How The West Was Won which is perhaps the most ironic as it's a high-res disc for a band known, at least in part, for its feedback and distortion.

OTOH, I did come out ahead with: Beck's Sea Change, Steely Dan's Everything Must Go, Robert Cray's Time Will Tell, Porcupine Tree's In Absentia and to a lesser degree, Donald Fagen's Morph the Cat. Surprisingly, Fagen's The Nightfly and Kamakiriad seem to have increased nicely as well.

The big winner so far though has been Porcupine Tree's Deadwing.

For $400, I want Porcupine Tree LIVE, and I want them to take me out to dinner after------after they spring clean my basement.

That's ridiculous. BTW, you sure you wanna covet those late Steely Dan's?

I won't say that they get the most spins around here, that's for sure.

So if you want that much from Porcupine Tree, I'm afraid to ask what you'll want from Roxy Music for buying the Avalon SACD. Yes, I have that one too, and I'm thinking that a bunch of these need to go into a safety deposit box.

A dozen sacd's at that price would equal a nice pair of Revels for me. Or a downpayment on a car! Like a 25% dwnpymt!

No, I don't think you're acquisitively insane. You should see my tool accessories. We're all willing to spend stoopit amounts of $$ on things we're hot for. Just because they're different dumb things from mine, doesn't mean I don't understand, you crazy person.

You're assuming that I paid high prices for those! Lest we forget, I'm a family man (read: cheap ba$tard). Never paid more than $30 for any of 'em.

Well that's too bad. I had a look for some good (well, to me, and hopefully to you too) cheaper SACDs on Amazon Canada. For your consideration, I own each of:

Dire Straits: Brothers In Arms
Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon

There are plenty of others of course. The only thing that I'd say is be very careful when buying SACDs. Most, at least in my experience looking at pop/rock, are only stereo recordings, not 5.1 multi-channel, as those mentioned above are. For example, I seem to recall that a number of Elton John's SACDs were stereo only, though I can't find proof of that quickly on Amazon.

Find the SACD multi-channel music that you like - it's worth the search!
