    Funny but the rarer ones appear to be Stereo only!

    Talk Talk (both)
    Peter Gabriel
    Cyndi Lauper
    The Bangles
    Gloria Estefan (stereo & Stereo/MC actually)

    Why they command such high prices and are so hard to get is beyond me.
    Although the 2 that come to mind is of course, The Scorpions and Aerosmith's Rocks but Rocks is stereo only supposedly.

    Another irony there is that the high priced, "rare" SACDs aren't ones that would be on my best Surround Sound mix or
    best SACD sound list !

    Believe it or not, the 200 Gram Classics Vinyl series of Peter Gabriel sounds better than the SACDs do.

    I have a couple of the Peter Gabriel SACDs, I find the early ones very disappointing. I prefer my original vinyl of PG3 - "Melt" to the SACD!!

    US isn't bad though and UP (5.1 of course) is awesome.....

    I can't believe the price these demand.....

    so much upset that PG didn't made all his reissues on SACD as a surround. particularly
    in the light of "Up" 5.1 turned out to be great in both, sonically and surround.
    somewhere i read that he purchased equipment for his studio to work in DSD.
    what a waste of money. would be much better if he could spend this investment
    onto surround remixes, particularly that there isn't too big back catalogue.

    I wish the labels and particularly PG milked the PG cow again with releasing surround remixes

    Isn't it odd that he went to great lengths to make sure the early Genesis stuff
    was done properly in surround yet his own early stuff is stereo!
    I'd love to hear the early discs done in 5.1, especially PG2 & 3.

    It must have been 20 years ago when Peter Gabriel came out with a computer program that enabled you to mix his latest album any way you liked. I don't know if it was even in stereo, and the bitrate must have been small, but it seems likely someone could isolate tracks and synch them into multitracks later.

    Billy Joel has a Umixit promo disc which allows you to mix 4 songs yourself on your PC.
    They are:
    1- Keeping the Faith
    2- Movin' Out
    3- Big Shot
    4- Only the Good Die Young

    He's savin' all his money for a multitrack, you oughta know by now!

    Don't want to hijack this thread but just to make sure: you guys are aware of Gabriel's 5.1 dts Greatest Hits collection, right?

    indeed this one is pretty good but still, all 3 audio streams lossy. particularly stereo and 5.1 as a DD - just a death for the ears.
    there few tracks from "UP" album. never compared but i guess the surround mix is the same as on SACD.

    b.t.w. on FB page he acknowledged that now they are remixing PG live in Athens from 1987 in HD and 5.1
    probably would be DVD-Video and BD-Video

    Yes, I have the MCH version.
    It is also out as a stereo only version as well but neither are hybrid.
    Never understood why they did a few of them like that...
    Stereo only and then a stereo / MCH edition.
    There is a Meat Loaf - Bat Out Of Hell, also I think Herbie Hancock's Headhunters is like that.
    And if you get the Japan version of Headhunters, It's Stereo/MCH/Hybrid but
    the Japanese version of Billy Joel's The Stranger is Stereo only.
    You have to be very careful when picking them up off eBay or Amazon as
    most sellers won't specify which one it is.

    Yes, I have the MC. The stereo version predates the MC. When the stereo was released, MC SACD players/discs weren't available.

    SACD 2ch predates MC by 3 years-ish. Several titles appeared in 2ch first. Miles' Kind of Blue was another.

    I found a new copy on the shelf in a Seattle record store about a year ago.
    Had no idea it was that rare, though I guess most SACDs fall into that category these days.

    Thanks for your reply, i was aware of the two versions. Is the multi channel any good, read a couple of mixed reviews ? I really love the album, but don't want to pay an inflated price, ( although, i know that impossible not to ! ) if it's not very good ?

    Estefan in surround is great! A very active mix. Worth owning.

    I have to agree!
    They did a nice job on it, and the music just hops!
    I don't remember what I paid for mine... $14.99 at Best Buy a while back.
    I tried to get a friend a copy off e-bay and it went for over $100.00 and it was stereo only!! Yikes!

    Does it seem very strange to anyone else that there are currently at least five Sarah Brightman SACDs on Ebay ??
