    I've quite a few of the Japanese Stereo SACDs and they are very good, the Free, Camel, & Fairport Convention are wonderful, and that's coming from someone who is more of a fan of 24-bit than standard resolution DSD. They do spend a lot of care making sure the audio sounds good.

    If anyone needs a good pair of bookshelf speakers, Crutchfield has a nice sale on Polk Audio TSi200 for $199 and free shipping within the US, I assume...that's a pretty darn good price for a pair of Polk speakers IMO.

    Does anyone here have a good scan of the front and back of the Rhino DVD-Audio of Chicago? (R9-73841)
    I can't seem to find a good photo for use in Foobar and I don't have a scanner to do my own scans...

    Big news from u2.com this morning!

    The band will be out on the road again this summer celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree and performing the album in full, every night. In July the tour brings them home to Croke Park in Dublin, 30 years after the original Joshua Tree Tour’s two memorable shows at the Dublin venue in June 1987.

    U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 kicks off in Vancouver on 12th May for a run of dates across North America, and includes U2’s first ever U.S. festival headline appearance at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival.

    The tour then moves to Europe with the first stop in London on 8th July, finishing up in Brussels on 1st August and taking in their hometown show in Croke Park on 22nd July.

    Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will provide support across Europe, with Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers and One Republic joining the tour through North America.

    “It seems like we have come full circle from when The Joshua Tree songs were originally writtten, with global upheaval, extreme right wing politics and some fundamental human rights at risk,” reflects The Edge. “To celebrate the album - as these songs seem so relevant and prescient of these times too - we decided to do these shows, it feels right for now. We’re looking forward to it.”

    “Recently I listened back to The Joshua Tree for the first time in nearly 30 years,” adds Bono. “It’s quite an opera. A lot of emotions which feel strangely current, love, loss, broken dreams, seeking oblivion, polarisation… all the greats... I’ve sung some of these songs a lot… but never all of them. I’m up for it, if our audience is as excited as we are… it’s gonna be a great night. Especially when we play at home. Croke Park.. it’s where the album was born, 30 years ago.”

    Tickets for U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 are on sale Monday, January 16th in Ireland, the UK and Europe and on Tuesday, January 17th in the US and Canada.

    As usual, there is an exclusive priority presale for U2.com subscribers from Wednesday, January 11th (9am) through Friday, January 13th (5pm) local times. Tickets will be general admission on the floor and reserved seating in the stands. There will be a 4 ticket limit for subscriber purchases and a 6 ticket limit commencing with public sales. In North America, all floor tickets will be paperless unless otherwise noted.

    Find all the dates below and keep an eye on our tour page for the latest ticket and package information. (Not a U2.com subscriber but interested in taking part in the presales? Subscription details here.)

    Released to universal acclaim on March 9th 1987 and featuring hit singles “With Or Without You”,“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and “Where The Streets Have No Name”, The Joshua Tree went to No. 1 in Ireland and around the world selling in excess of 25 million copies and catapulting Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr “… from heroes to superstars” (Rolling Stone).

    Time Magazine put U2 on its cover in April 1987, proclaiming them “Rock’s Hottest Ticket” in a defining year for the band that saw their arena dates roll into stadium shows to accommodate escalating demand - setting them on course to become one of the greatest live acts in the world today.

    The 12 months that followed saw the band create now-iconic moments: the traffic-stopping Grammy Award-winning music video on the roof of a Los Angeles liquor store, winning a BRIT Award and two Grammys - including Album of the Year - their first of 22 received to date, distinguishing U2 as the most awarded rock band in Grammy history; as well as a triumphant return home with the original Joshua Tree Tour for four unforgettable shows in Belfast, Dublin and Cork in the summer of 1987.

    In 1987 Hot Press called The Joshua Tree “their most influential album yet”. As for this tour? Noel Gallagher says, “It will be both a pleasure and an honour to play my part in what still remains the greatest show on earth.”

    Helllllllllllllllpppppppppppppppp!

    OK, I mean to say, help.

    I am so absolutely confused by classical music. I have a SACD disc. In big, bold print it says Antonio Vivaldi. In smaller print, it says L'Estro Armonico/Rachel Podger Brecon Baroque.

    So - as far as the Artist...who the hell is the artist? You get my drift? I want to tag the files correctly for Foobar and it simply confuses me.

    There are 2 discs to this paticular release. I assume Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque were people, but now I don't think so. When I put each disc in, it tells me the artist is Rachel Podger. Ok...maybe that's right. Who the heck is Antonio Vivaldi? Some old dude that wrote the original compositions? I expect that to be the case....

    No snickering....I'm clueless about classical. IN the end, I just want to know how to tag these damn discs/songs.

    Podgy is the main violinist, or the "star" like Pavarotti was or Yo-Yo Ma. Brecon Baroque is the ensemble or "band" she's playing with on that album. Vivaldi is the composer, like Bach, Mozart, Chopin, etc... Concertos are usually split in three parts.

    For your tagging, put Podgy & Brecon Baroque as the artist, Vivaldi as the composer and the album as L'Estro Armonico. For the tracks use the listing found on this page. Hope this helps.

    Simon...excellent! I would NEVER have known that. I probably should have known Vivaldi is the composer, but I guess I'm not familiar with the name. Obviously, Mozart, Bach, Chopin are all very familiar.

    Default Gimme Shelter: Theme music for ESPN College Football Championship

    It was surreal for me tonight hearing snatches of Gimme Shelter used to cut to and from commercials in the football game.

    I had just turned 16 when it came out Track 1 Side 1 on Let It Bleed.
    I recall a discussion in a high school English class where a straight, clean-cut athlete referenced it as the ultimate expression of the teenage angst we all felt in those years of the Viet Nam war, the draft and Nixon.

    To their credit, they used the actual Stones track.
    I'm sure Jagger & Richards get paid, I wonder about Merry Clayton.

    No great surprise they edited their loops, but those of us who grew up with it were all mentally filling in the gaps...
    RAAAAPE!!! MURDERRRRR!!! It's just a shot away...

    Of course, then I had to google it, and found it was rated one the top ten most over-used songs in TV and film.
    Some humorous reaction on social media...

    The college football championship is going to run too long and play Gimme Shelter a lot so it's practically a Scorsese movie...

    ESPN going with Gimme Shelter as the theme song tonight. Not the weirdest use I've heard of a protest song.

    Funny how ESPN keeps cutting away from Gimme Shelter every time the RAPE! MURDER! line is about to play

    You could put "Gimme Shelter" behind shots of someone doing their taxes and it would still pump me up.

    ESPN still looping Gimme Shelter but keep cutting off "rape, murder" Maybe they should have a different theme song for the game?

    Patton Oswalt
    Just saw Scorsese's SILENCE. Beyond beautiful. And the best use of the Stones' "Gimme Shelter" since CASINO
    I don't feel old that often until stuff like this comes up, 47 years later.
    "Ridin' in a Stutz Bearcat, Jim. [Personally, a Ford Mustang] Those were different times..."
    Cast your dancin' spell my way, I promise to go under it...

    Hunky Dory, Simon. MANY thanks for sharing. Their voices blend beautifully together and a reminder that they don't write songs [NOW] like they used to.

    Bowie's Young Americans [especially in 5.1] will always be one of my very favorite Bowie albums [what's NOT to like]?

    BTW, CHER was on the James Corden show recently and at 70 she still looks stunning and her vocal chops haven't diminished at all. Corden and Cher did an outrageous sketch of 'I've Got you Babe' together. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1T3d2RDlW8

    Music trivia moment...

    Cat Stevens wrote the song "The First Cut Is The Deepest" in 1967 and of course we all know Rod Stewart made it his own with a big hit on his 1976 album, A Night On The Town....

    On a work trip to my new companies HQ. Sitting in my hotel room listening to some mp3'd music, just listened to the Smoke Fairies first album (ethereal folk for those that haven't heard them), but wishing I'd stuck Can's "Flow Motion" on the SD card, which was recorded with artificial head system, as I might just of had a hint of surround in my ear pieces!
    177 SACD (159 Multi, 18 Stereo), 218 DVD-Audio/DTS/DD, 10 Blu-ray Audio, 14 SQ LPs, 2218 plain old stereo CDs

    Last night I spun the new AP SACD remaster of Cowboy Junkie's The Trinty Session. ALL involved did a splendid job but I can confirm that although the album was recorded ambisonically via a single calrec microphone it was not UHJ encoded (My Meridian pre/pro does have ambisonic capability).

    A stunning album and well worth revisiting.
