    Elusive Disc is running another of their Mobile Fidelity sales.
    This one includes some interesting Stereo SACD titles including artists like Allman Brothers Band, Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Chicago, Miles Davis, Love, Santana, Carly Simon, The Band and Hall and Oates.

    Worth a look if you want to fill out your MoFi SACD collection.

That includes fewer SACD Surround Sound reissues.

    When surround fans raise objections to recording methods (which tapes were used, type of mix) or express no interest in categories of albums (no live/concert recordings), that further reduces the chances that Surround Sound will be considered for a specific album reissue.

    In this era of shrinking optical disc sales and production, the best way to encourage more Surround Sound reissues is to be open to many albums vs. being more choosy.
    Snood was about to go to bed...........but Bmoura brought up this 2000 copies thing from MOFI

    Snood just bought the NEW recently released GET THE KNACK stereo SACD direct from MOFI limited to 2000......I get it in the mail and it is number 2031 WTF!!!???

    Well the disc was marked up so Snood had to contact them to get an RMA and me asked wtf is up with 2031??? No reply except concerning the return.........so me asked again........still waiting for a reply to why right above the number that says number it is number 2031 it says limited edition of 2000

    Bmoura did specify that SOME of the current crop of MoFi SACDs would have no more than 2000 pressings. It would seem to me that The Knack probably had a larger initial pressing due to its [former] popularity. In fact, thanks for reminding me to order it.

    But I did post on another thread that over a dozen or more MoFi Stereo SACD titles are showing up at vendors DeepDiscount and ImportCDs at substantial discount prices so I'm not surprised that MoFi is being cautious by not ordering what at one time were 10K SACD reissues of a given title. And if one reads between the lines, it also doesn't bode well for future MoFi Stereo SACD releases if lackluster sales portend this trend will continue....as vinyl reissues from both Analogue Productions and MoFi continue to SOAR!

    According to Music Direct, Get The Knack is limited to 2,000 copies on Hybrid Stereo SACD and 3,000 copies on the upcoming MoFi Vinyl LP edition.
    Another reminder to get the reissue titles of interest when they come out, before they disappear....

    I just want to expand a bit on The James Gang Rides Again. I took a second listen last night to this stereo only MOFI Hybrid SACD release and it is so beautiful, recorded obviously very well back in the day, the musical performance is so relaxing and good. Every once in awhile I get surprised and this is quite a joy.

    I totally agree, out of the 4 recent MOFI releases, The James Gang is the winner, with Ry Cooder's Boomer coming in second.
