    Santana - Abraxas - 2 channel SACD

    2 Points:

    For everyone that got on the Santana bandwagon after the rave reviews of Supernatural with all of the "star" duos back in 1999....Unless you've gone back and listened to the early albums between 69 and 76...You haven't heard Santana. IMO nothing done lately compares to the Latin, Rock, Jazz, Blues combination that was Santana's sound in the early days.

    And for everyone that says SACD is not worth the effort or the $....You don't know what you're missing!

    Obviously, I REALLY enjoyed this CD tonight!

    I couldn't agree more. While the recent stuff is pretty dang good, the classic stuff is phenomenal in comparison.

    Isn't a chamber orchestra a bit small to be tackling the 5th?

    Robert was decent, but I have a problem watching 60 year-old rockers...

    Now up Led Zep "Remasters" on headphones...

    Sarah McLachlan - Afterglow

    "Her voice soothes the soul." I borrowed this line from someone else...but after listening to the album it seems appropriate.

    I bought this one for the sole purpose of giving the multi-channel format another shot. I already have all the other Police albums on SACD single layer. Woody hit the nail squarely on the head. I'm done with MC.

    Ah, you're right! I didn't understand it was a "real time" kind of thing. So, right now all that I'm listening to are the clicking of the keyboard keys, the little fan to the right of my monitor, other folks voices, in the background. Only Micah has a decent sound system where he works, his "inner sanctum".
    The Roy Buchanan record is pretty cool, it comes in a burlap bag, with the title stenciled in red and black paint. His label was BIOYA which stood for Blow It Out Your ****. Nobody thought the record was legit, they thought it was some bootleg lp. It took me several years to get this one.
