    Once I upgraded my Pioneer firmware (thanks to someone at this site) I haven't had any problem playing any sacd/dvd-a discs, this one included. I'm wondering if the lack of many releases on dvd-a has something to do with quality control. I really enjoyed this album, hadn't listened to it previous to buying it.

    The disc plays great in my Samsung DVD-HD841/941/950 and Oppo DV970HD. I haven't tried my other DVD-A players, a JVC XV-FA900BK/SA612SL, and Pioneer DV-588A. I don't know if a foreign release is any different than the version I have. All WEA DVD-A discs I have ever owned have played properly as far as I can recall and I have owned a large number of them.

    I have a problem with this disc but it is only on the opening song (at around the 40 second mark or so). I have a Denon 2910 and don't have many problems with all of my other SACDs and DVDAs. I read somewhere where someone else has a problem at the same spot on that disc as I do.

    I've listened to this a few times now. Great surround mix and very good music. I especially it when the DVD-A is my first exposure to a recording and enjoy the mix and the music fresh.

    I hadn't heard much of Crosby's solo stuff and this was as good as described here.

    I have the same problem with my Pioneer DV-578A. Here's a link to other bad disc reports on the album.

    I just tested my copy with my Denon 2910 and did not encounter any problems at about 40 seconds on the opening track.

    Hope this helps.

    i have been listening to the mp3's of this release since this thread started and have not been impressed AT ALL from this album, it just seemed kinda boring sounding and bleh... For one thing, the mp3's track listing was different and was listed in a totally different way, making it even worse than it already was, and it was only in 128kbps, anyways, fast forward to today.

    I found the dvd-a/cd combo @ Amoeba and omg! It's like a brand new album! Although mp3's are great and all, they miss something that you can't get with a hi-def recording like this.

    mabye im just a snob.

    Damn, what a fine, fine disc. The music just pulls you in and the surround mix envelopes you with warm guitars and those amazing harmonies. The fidelity is downright amazing. This is one that just gets better the longer you listen to it. The mood is laid back yet belies a complexity in composition and performance. This is an utter gem. I have always been a CSN&Y and Grateful Dead fan, and have followed the individual solo careers relatively closely, but this amazing piece of Crosby's somehow slipped me by. I literally had never heard of it until its release on DVD-A. Amazing. An utter classic. 10 points.

    I wore out my vinyl copy of this David Crosby album many years ago.

    It's always been one of my favorites from the glory days of CSN&Y.

    The hi-res MC perfectly complements the material here, which almost seems to have been recorded with surround sound in mind. It's a very active mix without being gimmicky at all.

    I have to give it a 10 across the board for music, sound, and mix :

    I'm jumping on the bandwagon...

    But first I want to apologize right here, before God and everybody, to Dennis Mabry for shrugging him off once at his house when he showed me this disc. O.K., in fairness Dennis and I would try to listen to SO many discs in SO little time that we both had to shrug off SOME of the discs, but now that I've heard IICORMN I'm wishing I wouldn't have shrugged it off.

    I'd never heard this album before, and I have to agree with DMT that the stereo mix might not have impressed me. This music was made for 5.1 (or, actually, 5.0 as the case may be).

    This is a classic example of what can be achieved with a great multichannel mix. Good title in stereo, awesome in hi-rez surround!

    Paul, no apologies necessary. I'm glad you like it. You have introduced me to many artists / titles also, that I would not have considered myself. Quid pro quo.

    To (loosely) borrow a quote from Dave Matthews: "You know when you're at the barbeque and someone makes some really good chicken and you're all like, 'DAMN, THAT'S SOME GOOD CHICKEN!!!'" David Crosby's IICORMN on DVD-A is good chicken.

    Or toficken or tofurkey, if meat ain't your thing.

    I really like CSN&Y and never listened to any of the solo material other than Neil Young stuff. So far I haven't been able to get into this recording, the sonics are impressive as others have posted but can't get past song 3 or 4 before switching to another disk. I was in a acoustic listening mood the other day and as already posted in Foo Fighters(In Your Honor) thread listened to their album and like it alot. After rereading this thread will try listening to last few songs on album to see what I am missing.
    Those that are fans of this album did you like it right aways, did you have to give it a few spins before it hit the mark?

    I completely missed the album on its original release decades ago but I picked up the DVD-A right after it was released and liked it from the start. I wasn't aware that David could carry an album on his own doing the lead vocals. Give it some time if you like CSN&Y, it might grow on you.

    Got a copy of this (locally) recently.

    Interesting that this is a 5.0 mix - this has to be the best disc that I've heard thats 5.0. 10 all the way for me.

    Vocals sound amazing, guitars in all channels sound great.

    I've never been a CSN&Y fan... but this was worth it in surround.

    i know its a bona-fide classic and it does sound completely amazing but I find it all a bit bland. beautiful sounding but ultimately boring. I really don't get what all the fuss is about. I've tried to get into it.. but it just doesnt do anything for me. I'd much rather have had "Deja Vu" in 5.1.

    A "6".

    I'd Remember My Name IF I Weren't So Damn High is a good, not a great album. 10 for the mix. 6 for the music. So, it's an 8. Back in the stone age, I bought this one the first day it was out in 5.1. Jon's image appears to have a Circuit City (remember them?) price tag.
