    After all, they were Stereo only, didn't sound great and are now long out of print and hard to find.
    If AF had done those two on Surround SACD the whole endeavour may have been more successful for them and for us - just how I feel and I am glad and thankful for all they did - and wish they were continuing with 5.1/Quad but at this point they appear not to be, so hopefully Sony Japan & Dutton Vocalion will continue where they left off.
    oh.. and as if by magic, word comes from the SHF that Mr.H is remastering Weather Report's "Heavy Weather".. there's been an SACD of that before, from Sony, so hopefully AF's will be an improvement, the old one's mediocre imho.

    Blue Cheer, Vincebus Erupttum, stereo DSD. I have had the original 1968 LP, listening on a fold out stereo box, then original cassette and CD. If you have never heard this before, musically, you would probably not like it. Loud, heavy music, recorded loud in 1968. The type of music my parents, yelled "turn it down". So today I did all I know how to do and listen to it loud. Nothing changed. I am sure Audio Fidelity's 2017's release is the best I ever heard, but it is what it is. I closed my eyes and listened just the same as I did when I was 12 not knowing how much music I would see, hear, and play in my life. From a audiophiles point of view who has listened to this release a thousand times, the stereo soundstage is narrow, left guitar, right bass and drums, vocals stereo center which is really nice, drums resonate very well, I am sure I never heard drums and cymbals sound that good, bass is good on some but not all tracks. Thanks AF, for doing a great job with, I am sure not an easy source to even consider a SACD.

    An update today from Audio Fidelity.
    Asia "Alpha" and Styx "Pieces of Eight" on Hybrid Stereo SACD ship next week.

    Asia and Styx - Ship Next Week - Sept 13 2017.jpg

    And a word about the upcoming Styx "Pieces of Eight" SACD from Stephen Marsh at Marsh Mastering:

    "For any Styx fans still on the fence about picking up the new Audio Fidelity 'Pieces of Eight' - I recently finished the Authoring on it and let me tell ya - Kevin Gray blasted that thing out of the park. When the low synths kick in it will literally shake the walls. Don't really think it has ever sounded better."

    By the way, ImportCD's still list it as a pre-order with a release date of October 27th.

    Thanks, I was afraid it was unavailable when I couldn't find it. I've had bad luck with pre-orders from Amazon lately. I've been using Bull Moose more often. I've never used importcds for a pre-order. Are they reliable?

    Out of complete paranoia - I ordered another copy of the Scorps from ImportCD as I had Bruford in the cart from them anyway.....
    I guess if Amazon comes through and updates their release date, I'll likely just cancel.

    For now, I guess I potentially have 2 copies coming.....
