There a very popular thread on the latest LP pickups.
I thought I would start one for CD's, SACD's.
I just picked up two amazing SACD titles.
Donovan..Stoyteller.. A Steve Hoffman remaster.
All I can say is ..amazing. The acoustic guitar and voicals sound so real.
It sounds like Donovan is in my music room.
The other title is the SHM SACD of The Rolling Stones..Sticky Fingers.
Expensive but...it is, in my opinion, the best sounding CD / vinyl release of this title.
Glen



But, but, but why would anyone want Donovan in their music room? :shock: :roll: 8) :?

That's great!! I was thinking of pulling the trigger on that set. One thing though, isn't there a lot of versions of the same songs? Just from different nights?
I find the original Allman Brothers Fillmore CD's were kind of muddy sounding. Is that improved?

For the most part they are repeating the sets but the differences in the lead breaks are really interesting.
I don't think they played the songs the same way twice.
The unreleased version of You Don't Love Me from Disc One is mind blowing good.

T'was half price day at the Goodwill today so picked up some CD's (the horror, the horror :lol: ) as there was no decent vinyl and generally hasn't been for a long time.

So for $1.50 each picked up:

The Commitments (Soundtrack)
Pearl Jam Ten
The B52's Cosmic Thing
Bill Frisell The Intercontinentals
Marcus Roberts Alone With Three Giants

Had lost this thread for some reason ....

This past weekend's sidewalk sale finds:

Still shrink wrapped Madonna's Immaculate Collection and Music CDs
Bryan Adams Waking up the Neighborhood (My copy of the CD went MIA during my move but I still had the case)
Black Eyed Peas Monkey Business .... just because the jacket looked cool
Will Smith Wild Wild West EP
And finally, one I have been looking for ever since it came out in 97, Jean-Jacques Goldman En Passant

$6 for the lot

Thanks Albert. The new stuff from Japan was a bit more than $6.00 tho'..... :oops:

For what I paid for those five CDs' I could have feasted at the thrift stores for years. But then again I doubt that I would have found any of those versions at a thrift store. Highly unlikely but not impossible I guess.
