    So, I sent email to MD to complain, and I got an email that said, sorry for the inconvenience, please call us to place the order and we'll take care of that. Whoa...I was so excited...

    But, when I called them, they basically told me what the disclaimer says. Out of stock, doesn't count towards the free shipping. Ugh....

    It's obvious that acoustic and elusive want you to pay more right now for "bragging rights" on the new Beach Boy titles...they know some people want to be the first ones to get these titles...so they are taking advantage of that ego boost..hehe...in my case I'm not very interested in these later beach boy releases...I'm not as optimistic about the sound quality and I'm not real crazy about the content...

    MoFi SACD Santana "Abraxas". I've been waiting over two years for this one to get released. Sounds great though I STILL want a new multichannel SACD of it.

    MOFI is having a pretty nice sale on some LP's and also a bunch of mostly stereo SACD and then finally, some out of print things that have a pretty high price, but might be collector items...I dunno. Anyway, probably worth a visit. Oh yeah, and it's via Elusive Disk.

    ALL the MoFi Miles SACDs sound great. I recently spun Nefertitti and The Sorcerer. Like you're right in the room with Miles!

    In case you overlooked this one, it's a real treat: http://hraudio.net/showmusic.php?title=6356 The Dennis Hopper film for which this soundtrack was assembled and Don Johnson's performance are likewise engaging.

    Addenda: Was just perusing the Acoustic Sounds website and noted that you do have the HOT SPOT and gave it 5* which it justly deserves.

    I just received Mofi's Miles Davis "Miles in the sky"....simply breathtaking.

    Oh...and Hot Spot is special. Miles Davis with JohnLee Hooker and Taj Mahal....startling.

    It's great to see that I'm not the only one buying and loving the Mofi series of hybrid stereo sacds...

    I was spinning MoFi's Stereo SACD of Jefferson Airplane's VOLUNTEERS the other night and although it sounds wonderful, I naturally would've preferred it in 4.0. Time to fire up my QUAD Dolby b encoded Open Reel which, from memory, was much more exciting.

    Ralph - soooo. Is the SACD of Volunteers excellent? I have to decide between the 45rpm vinyl or the SACD. I assume you might say the sacd...but those 45rpm vinyls sound excellent many times.

    Gos, you can probably eventually buy the MoFi SACD from ImportCD [when they stock it] for $22 and change, probably half of the 45 rpm price....but IMO, I'd hold out for [hopefully] an eventual 4.0 SACD (either from AF or SONY Japan).

    It's a pretty dense album but isn't the best in SACD sonics (like the much later Cars debut or Heartbeat City SACDs which ARE superior).

    A GREAT album, nonetheless! At 52 minutes, it'll probably be spread over 4 sides of 2 discs........@ 45 rpm. So that's YOUR call!

    Yeah, OK. Well, I'm not surprised. To my ears, the older Airplane stuff has never had the greatest fidelity. Not sure why...but of course, I love the music and what it stands for. I have an old CD of Volunteers and I'm sure I could improve on it.

    I REALLY think a 4.0 QUAD SACD would be superior to the two channel because of the very dense original mix. Wonder how the MONO SACD of Surrealistic Pillow (and/or vinyl) will sound?

    Would still LOVE to hear Worst of the Jefferson Airplane on 4.0 SACD. Wonder if the QUAD master is in usable shape? Still remains a mystery.

    (I know it's been released. But only in a big box set that is OOP and crazy expensive)
