    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.
