I've picked up a bunch of new music lately.

Join BMG and you get 12 cd's for the price of one, then you can quit the club. They also have some SACD's available!

Anyway...

Bob Dylan "Oh Mercy" Hybrid SACD - LOVE IT!
Sting "Ten Summoners Tales" - LOVE IT!
Tony Bennett & K.D. Lang "It's a Wonderful World" - Pretty nice
Count Basie/Oscar Peterson "Satch & Josh" - AMAZING (and only $1.99 at BMG!)

Don't even tell me this is the first time you've heard Ten Summoner's Tales... Does the term "mushroom" mean anything to you?

Sorry, but yeah...I've never owned that cd before.

Just listened to "Slowhand" 5.1 mixed SACD. Holy Shnikes! I honestly only really liked four of the nine tracks, but the sound quality and mix are astounding. Wowie, wow, wow, wow. I wish all 5.1 discs sounded that good. Sitting there with my eyes closed it sounded like the band was right there in the room with me. Especially the drums. CRYSTAL clear. Definately worth picking up.

I used to have a Mobile Fidelity LP copy of Slowhand... it was one of my favorite albums many years ago. I had wondered how the mix on the SACD was.... thanks!
