    Probably because it's a LONG out of print SACD and commands a premium. Some of the long out of print 24k Gold discs command $90+.

    This is a great album: http://www.mofi.com/product_p/udsacd2140.htm

    The last cut, Arabia, is stunning!

    Well I have a good Bud Buzz on now and catching up on recent MOFI Hybrid SACD releases, all are fucking great, Bill Withers Greatest Hits, Billy Joel, The Stranger, 52nd St., Santana I and Abraxas and Santana III, Carly Simons Anticipation and the other one where she looks fine, forget the album name. I love MOFI, I know they are stereo only but they are so good at what they do, better, way better, than AF's stereo releases. I got burned out on Chicago's, very awesome box set and definitive I may add. If you are into new music Bruce Hornsby's Rehab Reunion is fantastic. No piano all Dulcimer. I got the USB 24/96 stick of Clapton's new I Still Do, stereo awesome only also. I have to admit that Beach Boys BD release at same time as Quadio was not smart, like movies in the theater you have to time your release for competition. I also got my final Monster Music Ray Charles, love it. Did I tell you I found a Tesla DVD-A live for $38.00 cant wait. My machine is stellar now after two years of working on it.

    Will it have better sound or some other advantage over the MC version?

    Had you purchased the Audio Fidelity Gold CD from a few years back?

    No I don't have that one BUT I certainly respect those Hoffman mastered Gold CD's(looks around for a comment from fredblue)as I have some of them and they are excellent...I doubt this would be much of an upgrade..I'm not one of those people that thinks that a SACD is automatically better than a CD...depends on who works on it...

    Ok folks...not sure what to buy next...let me make a few suggestions...Music Direct is STILL offering 15% off..PROMO CODE SUPER15...and free shipping at the $49 price point...I can give a big thumbs up to these discs that I recently purchased

    TIME OUT-HERE
    Carly Simon-Hotcakes HERE
    THE CARS-Heartbeat City HERE
    Bill Withers-Greatest Hits HERE

    So here is how this works...pick 2 of these I listed at $25.49 each with the promo code SUPER15 and your order comes to $50.98 and you get free shipping...buy all 4 and it's $101.97...you can't go wrong with any of these titles...they sound excellent..

    If you like that one Clint, be sure to grab this one too. A great combination of laid back performances and a very "into it" audience. So much so that they ask for the first track to be played again a mere seconds after the bands finishes playing. Amazing energy in the room. Love it.

    The album features songs that do not show up on his studio albums. World Keeps Going Around is one of my favourites of his and the band simply nails it.

    Yeah, I tried it with recent beach boys. Took 20%off, but because they are not in stock, shipping is not free: I hate that rule!
