Kind of fan of Faye Wong :love: Universal Music Hong Kong has released zillions of SACD box sets (with 6 to 13 or more discs) for several asian artists. Very expensive although.
I just have listened two discs and they sound sooo good :dance

Back in the day, HK Universal Music actually did single-inventory hybrid SACD releases. At least it is still releasing newly recorded albums on SACD.

Faye Wong also recorded for Hong Kong Sony Music, but for whatever reasons, HK Sony is not releasing any SACDs at all. HK Sony Music, and I would add HK Warner Music as well, is sitting on a gold mine and they're not doing anything. SACDs are selling despite the chaos on streets; the above Faye Wong SACD boxset set is one of the top 5 selling releases on the HK music charts.

Happy New Year to you and everyone at QQ.

I'm very familiar with the music on the Trane and PPM.

I bought Trane on CD w/grey sleeve & bonus tracks of a/b sides of single My Favorite Things, and as part of the Heavyweight Champion CD box.

PPM In the Wind I have on CD.

Both the performances and fidelity of the RBCD's are pretty good for 60 year old recordings. Of course, I hope the SACD's will be an improvement in fidelity over the RBCD's.

Looking forward to spinning them both today LOUD.

I've not heard of an SACD of Still Crazy. If so, I'm in. So far, I've popped for a Q8, SQ, CBS CD & expanded CD in Paul Simon WB Collection. IMHO, his best album.

Music Direct has neither a showroom nor a store. They have a few pieces of gear set up and no SACD's/LP's to browse through. They had some racks of close out Gold CD's & some of their MoFi stuff at their old location.
