    Yeah, but many here want multi-channel. So, that's the reason for not ordering that one. At least, that's my excuse....

    You can always pretend it's surround by waving that magic wand of yours, Gen[ie].

    Besides, it's a first from the GRP Label which was quite the audiophile label back in the day. Valentin IS immensely talented.

    Hope D~V releases some Diane Schuur on Stereo SACD...also from the GRP label as well as some Dave Grusin.....His West Side Story DVD, produced by Phil Ramone [ DTS 5.1 but really sounds awesome] would be a great surround candidate. https://www.amazon.com/Dave-Grusin-P...=UTF8&qid=&sr=

    On the Cecil Holmes Quad mixes, I requested those on Surround SACD from Dutton Vocalion.
    So that was a definite order here.

    The guy behind that one was actually Tony Camilo, the producer of the Gladys Knight & the Pips hits on Buddah, with a host of studio musicians.
    So while the album was a tribute to Cecil Holmes, record exec. There is definitely musical talent at work here.
    I am very familiar with the Cecil Holmes title - perhaps curated by Cecil but performed by a group of talented studio cats. The playing is first rate, the arrangements are by the numbers. I'm sure the quad mix is stellar - just not a big fan of "sound-a-like" arrangements. Sort of like a realistic android - there's something off

    Eh...sort of related...

    So - Vocalion's website. If I log in, there is a box you can check that says "Remember me on this computer". Of course, I check it...but every single time I visit the site, I have to remember my password and log in.

    Ugh....no other site does that. Anyone know why the feature they offer doesn't work?

    My understanding is that the 3 new SACDs should begin shipping later in the month.

    Looking forward to it!

    The 3 SACDs scheduled for release in October are due in from the SACD replication line on October 18th.
    So I think we will see the shipments starting shortly after that date.

    Everything is still on track for an October 2017 release by Dutton Vocalion.

    haha - awesome! I placed a bigger order, along with the 2 new multi-channel titles. Seems they were waiting to make a single shipment...which is fine by me. So, I should have the 2 new ones along with about 4 older ones I didn't have.

    They've arrived!!!!!

    And they are SUPERB!!!!!!!!

    The Cecil Holmes disc is remarkable. I had no expectations, never having heard of them. Quadraphonic mix is incredible, the arrangements are gripping, the sound is fabulous, the music is top notch. I just sat there grinning, tapping my foot, just gobsmacked. It's incredible. An 11.

    The Deodato is wonderful too. Again, magnificent quadraphonic mix, superb arrangements, superb sound, superb music. And the way that that electric guitar bursts out of the rear left speaker in Baubles, Bangles and Beads is a joy to the ears. Another 11.

    I just pray that people buy these discs in high numbers. Let's hope that Vocalion keep them coming for many years to come.

    Based on the quality and price of the last few releases, I have decided to buy these whether I am familiar with the title or not. I have yet to be disappointed. Just great stuff all around. I cannot wait for the latest shipment!

    Default Re: 3 New SACDs from Dutton Vocalion (October 2017)

    Clint will laugh at my post cause of my impatient nature sometimes. But.....I paid extra for faster shipping and tracking number. Unless they haven't shipped mine yet (I've had my order in place since day 1), I've not received any notification and when I log into my account, there is no information about shipping or tracking.

    I paid an additional $20.97 for this shipping/tracking. What a complete waste if they don't follow through. Steely - do you have any insight to this shipping?

    I know it's not ideal especially if you're used to the automated way amazon and the other big boys do things, but if you want to get your tracking number you'll need to email Vocalion's shipping department and ask for it.

    Mike is aware of the grumbling about the lack of dispatch notifications, and it is something they want to address (no pun intended) but it just hasn't happened yet. The label has a very small staff and if they had to hire additional manpower to provide the kind of shipping service Amazon does, it would literally double the price they have to charge. I've suggested to them that they get someone to write some software that will automate the process of sending out shipping notice emails (along with tracking info from the shipping log) but again it's the kind of project that takes time and money. D-V's main focus is getting shipments out the door, so if people in the UK are receiving them (where shipping usually only takes 2 or 3 days), you can be pretty much assured that your discs are on their way. But again, don't be afraid to shoot them an email, all the people at the label are kind and friendly and want to help.

    The other upside of the tracking service you paid for is that (at least from my experience) it's much quicker. The non-tracked shipments I've had have taken in the neighbourhood of 30 days, whereas the the couple of tracked ones were something like 10 or 12 days. So hopefully you should have the discs in your hands faster as a result.
