    Looks like MoFi isn't getting any of my money in 2012....very disappointing selection.

    Hey, I'll throw Billy some love... The Stranger and 52nd Street could both be worth upgrading.

    Might also consider some Davis, but already got my fill of Dylan SACD on the cheap thru BMG awhile back...
    More later,

    For the record (sorry about the pun....NOT!), Songs In The Attic, The Nylon Curtain, and Glass Houses have never appeared on SACD before.

    I have the audio fidelity gold cd of 52nd street. It was a big improvement over the original cd.

    The 2012 list is a bit of yawn for me

    Rick,

    Please note that the MoFi SACD version of "The Stranger" is stereo only, whereas Sony's SACD version had a multi-channel mix as well.

    How is it that blur can have their entire album collection released on 180gm vinyl??

    Led Zeppelin?
    Pink Floyd?
    Aerosmith?

    I can go on and on even AC/DC has most of their catalog released on vinyl. I just don't get it!!

    Who the hell gets to pick what to release on 180gm vinyl or SACD? I think they should be fired IMHO!!

    I've yet to pull the trigger on this. Amazon has it in stock now and I'll likely order it from them this week. Many of MoFi's SACDs that I own are stereo only, and that's just fine by me as I am a 2 channel setup only guy these days, and will probably remain that way for the rest of my life...

    Was the mofi version of The Stranger any good? One of the reasons why I ask is I love the music on it but, the LP or cd's I have gotten of them in the past were always thin sounding.

    Just a heads up, overnight the price of The Stranger has dropped to $24.84 on Amazon. I haven't decided whether I'm going to order it just yet or not as I just placed an order with them last night...

    Thanks Danny. I'll be getting the "Round About Midnight" AND "Learning To Crawl". Great news!

    Just received e-mail from Music Direct....

    http://www.musicdirect.com/p-82538-p...brid-sacd.aspx

    Patricia Barber’s origins are commonly associated with 1994’s Caf? Blue and the follow-up, 1998’s Modern Cool. Both quickly established the singer/pianist as an immediate audiophile favorite whose rare combination of astute instrumental performance, daring originality, poet enterprise, intrepid vocals, and sculpted production announced her as an artist that both takes immense care in her music as well as in her sound. While largely unknown to many, 1992’s diverse A Distortion of Love signaled the beginning of Barber’s unfettered creativity.

    Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered, limited-edition hybrid SACD of the Chicagoan’s sophomore album features the similar wowing detail and perspective-altering clarity offered on the reissue label’s celebrated versions of Mythologies, The Cole Porter Mix, and the now out-of-print and extremely sought-after Caf? Blue, Modern Cool, Companion, and Nightclub.

    Such is the attention brought to Barber’s tastefully reverb-assisted singing, the quartet’s stripped-down arrangements, the grand piano’s resonance, the background finger snaps, and the astounding transparency of every note and breath uttered in the studio. Smoothness, balance, and neutrality abound. Through and through, this is an audiophile delight.

    While national acclaim wouldn’t come to Barber until the mid-90s, it wasn’t because she didn’t provide notice of her monumental talent and MacArthur Grant-worthy inventiveness. On A Distortion of Love, her individuality manifests on a surprisingly eerie rendition of the standard “Summertime” and subsequent “Subway Station No. 5,” a lengthy piece adorned with atmospheric nervousness, tonal shifts, and contrapuntal movements that ultimately lead into a swinging theme.

    Barber, guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel, bassist Marc Johnson, and percussionist Adam Nussbaum achieve like-minded heights on an improvised and clever read of the Temptations’ “My Girl.” Here, and again especially on the aptly titled “You Stepped Out of a Dream,” Barber’s textured vocals seemingly float on a jet-black plain, emanating as if her lips and mouth are just feet away, the slap of the acoustic bass and patter of the drums responding in kind to her expressiveness. Whether you’re familiar with this album, a longtime Barber fan, or just coming to her for the first time, Mobile Fidelity’s digital edition of this record will please even the sternest critics of vocal jazz.
