    Good ones there!

    How is Tribute to a Lady in Stereo SACD? It wasn't issued on SACD in the U.S. but I hear it has just been reissued on SACD in the U.K.
    May have to get that one this time!

    I've only listened to Tribute a couple times. The fidelity is good for its' age. Perhaps I need to listen to it more, although I've owned this title for nearly 10 years. With as rabid as my buying habits are, it's difficult to give anything heavy rotation. Although I have most of Sam's output, I would prefer to listen to Lady Day perform this material.

    Regarding the Laura Nyro SACD, it is superb. If you like her at all, YOU NEED IT! Musically, I prefer Eli, New York Tendaberry, Christmas & Beads of Sweat (w/Duane Allman & Felix Caviliere), Smile and Mother's Spiritual. I had the pleasure of seeing her twice at Chicago's Vic. A true genius.

    This one brings back memories - the debut album by America. Although I don't remember it sounding this good when it originally was released!
    Another fine remastering job by Steve Hoffman on the Audio Fidelity label.

    When the word gets out about this SACD, I think Audio Fidelity will have another hit on their hands. It features several classics by Peter, Paul & Mary
    (500 Miles, Where Have All the Flowers Gone, Lemon Tree and If I Had a Hammer).

    The stereo separation, detail and quality of the mastering by Steve Hoffman from a quality tape is very much in evidence here.
    My favorite track is the hit "Lemon Tree" but there are several others that fare very well on SACD - worth many future listens !

    An excellent collection of hits by The Who. Pinball Wizard, My Generation, Squeeze Box, You Better You Bet, Who Are You. They are all here, in many cases in Stereo.
    A must have for fans of the band !

    A classic by Jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery. Includes arrangements by Don Sebesky and an all star band (Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Grady Tate) and orchestration. Produced by Creed Taylor of CTI fame.
    Recommended on Stereo SHM-SACD!

    Jimmy Smith's "The Cat" - this one features his amazing Jazzy Organ playing plus arrangements and music by famed composer Lalo Shafrin.
    An unbeatable combination - Not to be missed. Easily one of the best SHM-SACDs released by Universal Japan.

    It's out of print. But there are a few copies still floating around out there on eBay and Amazon.

    For those of you who don't have it, too bad it's out of print. My favorite Who album easily.
