This just in: The Djabe website is offering a TEMPORARY 21% discount on their entire selection of DVD~A and DVD~V discs to celebrate their anniversary. Here is the link (provided by poster haikubass): http://djabe.hu/en/product-category/dvd/dvd-audio/

These are incredible sounding discs and the band is an extraordinary amalgam of jazz and funk....always melodic and very HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I have never seen these prices SO low so I would recommend you take advantage of this sale....especially since the Euro exchange rate is so agreeable for non~European customers.

Thanks! Which particular albums would you recommend to someone new to the Djabe catalog?

Which titles are available in surround format?

Thanks,

Steve

Highly recommended: http://djabe.hu/en/js_albums/witchi-tai-to-2014-edition/ as well as Sheafs Are Dancing and Slices Of Life. ALL DVD~Audio discs are MLP DVD~A 5.1 If you click onto the various discs they will bring you to a link further describing the various track selections, musicians involved and the resolution of each disc if you follow the >> symbol.

The DVDs are standard resolution discs [480p] and some of the audio discs are DTS 5.1 with MLP Stereo Tracks. Do check out each disc before ordering. But they ARE very pricey on the various Amazon websites so this is a golden opportunity to order at these TEMPORARY sale prices.

Today I received in perfect condition from Hungary 6 Djabe MLP DVD~A 5.1 discs. The 6th disc was a free GIFT from the group entitled 'Ly~0~Lay ALL Loya.' Am currently playing the fantastic 'Witchi Tai To.'

I'm still thrilled that for under $57, DELIVERED, I received a total of SIX MLP 5.1 titles all in Super Audio Jewel Cases.

And make no mistake, these are quality, exceptionally well recorded/mastered, highly discrete DVD~As from a band who should be more widely known.:banana:

FYI

You can even buy Djabe stereo R2R master tapes: http://djabe.hu/en/album_category/reel-to-reel/?events=next :worthy

It would be funny if they produced and released quad reels, too :cool:
Wow......what a revelation! If only my Revox A77 which has the capacity for NAB hubbed reels did 15 ips. It only plays back at 3 3/4 and 7 1/2 but does have dolby b encoding. That price is incredible [62 Euros]: http://djabe.hu/en/uzlet/new-dimensions-update-live-2-savos-mesterszalag/

I have managed to play all SIX newly acquired Djabe DVD~As this week and can enthusiastically report they're all quite brilliant. The sonics and mastering are beyond reproach. Wish these guys were more widely known. It's not often a group's body of work is this eclectic. Each and every album is diverse and covers so many musical ranges.

And if their surround mixes were more discrete then that would be the nirvana for me :mad:@: .
