    It Had To Be You: The Great American Songbook - Rod Stewart (DVD Audio).

    Finally came up (on ebay.de) cheaply enough to justify getting (£13).
    I love Rod but not this schlock, though I'll give it a chance to see if I can stomach it in surround sound..!!

    Amen to that brother! He used to be a rock and roller. Sigh.

    My latest additions are the first four Black Sabbath albums on 2-channel SHM SACD.
    I haven't played them all yet, but so far I like what I have heard.

    Excellent choices. I recently obtained the first one. I still need some more. Need a better job. Working on that.

    One of the MFSL Dylan SACDs is out now. I'm waiting for the usual Labor Day sale to buy it and other stuff.

    4 SACDs from MFSL in the post today...

    Billy Joel:

    The Stranger
    52nd Street
    Glass Houses
    The Nylon Curtain

    Stereo only, of course, but "Nylon" sounds amazing, for starters. Hope to get to the others tomorrow.

    I have the two Sony SACDs for multichannel but was hearing such great things about these stereo versions I thought it was worth a punt.

    Could you please A/B you Columbia and Mofi copies of the Stranger and 52nd and post your findings here?

    According to the SH forum the AF gold CD of 52nd Street sounds better than either SACD [insert laugh track here].

    That's weird, last time I was reading over there, people were saying the AF 52nd Street sounded weird and wrong.



    Will definitely do a shoot out of the SACD stereo layers of 52nd and Stranger when I get a moment!

    I've owned an LP, 1/2 speed LP, Japan CD, remastered CD, deluxe box, 2CD and SACD 5.1 of Stranger. My hunch is that the Columbia SACD sounds best and the MoFi SACD is the same, or very close in 2ch. I've owned all the same pressings on 52nd st, except there wasn't a 2CD or deluxe box. I'd also expect the Mofi & Columbia SACD's to sound identical in 2ch.

    I've owned an LP, Japan LP, Japan CD and remastered CD of Nylon Curtain & Glass Houses. I would expect the SACD's, which I have yet to pick up, to be the best.

    Does the Gold disc of 52nd st sound better than the SACD's? It's possible, but I highly doubt it. It is probably EQ'd differently.

    I ordered the Dylan SACD (Freewheelin') today along with Black Sabbath Vol. 4 from Acoustic Sounds (free UPS ground shipping). I've never opened my Sony Freewheelin' SACD. It's one of the stereo ones.

    I was going to wait until the Labor Day sale but the Sabbath title has sold out from other USA websites so wanted to get my order in.

    I've already got the MFSL Glass Houses, but not Nylon Curtain. I think I'll wait for Innocent Man to become available and get both then. I have the Sony Innocent Man but I think MFSL will improve on it.

    I'm sticking with the Sony SACD for Stranger and 52nd Street.

    do you know who mastered the AF 52nd Street? I'd be amazed if it did sound better than the SACDs, the Sony one I have is terrific!

    I have both of the AF Billy Joel gold discs and I don't think either one sounds particularly good.
