    I sent an email and will see what they say.
    BUMMER DOOD!
    Response from Nate at AS tells me that this is indeed a new mix from the tapes and not a regurgitation from the DVD-A I have even though it has the same pkg

    Okay, I've given them a few listens and they are really nice sounding recordings. Nothing Earth shattering but really nice. I'm satisfied except for the loooooooooooooong wait !!!!

    I received my copies of all 6 Doors SACD's today and listened to The Doors and Morrison Hotel.

    The review of The Doors SACD is not going to be too positive. To my ears the Original West German Pressing of this CD sounds better than the SACD. The Analogue Productions SACD sounds very tinny tone-wise, the clarity of everything sounded veiled and the soundstage is narrower and not as deep as the West German pressing of the CD. There is some distortion I noted on the drums on "The End" in a couple spots that's not there on the West German CD. I know that the "best sourced tapes" were used to master the first album and it sounds like they were not very well kept and/or good sources, IMO. I am relatively dissapointed in the audio quality of The Doors SACD. I think I'll stick with the Original West German CD.

    Next, I put on Morrison Hotel and listened. Now, this was a different story! This SACD sounded much better (compared to The Doorst SACD although the high end seems slightly exaggertated to me, but only slightly)! The soundstage was wide, deep and very 3D (take a listen to "Queen Of The Highway")! The tone was more full (although slightly lacking in mid and lower-bass and midrange to my ears) and less tinny sounding compared to The Doors SACD. I didn't note any distortion on this SACD as I did on The Doors SACD. The dynamics on this SACD are fantastic! If you crank it, you will be very pleased indeed!

    I will take another listen to the first album and give it a second shot. But, I am not expecting anything to change. I know what I heard the first time unfortunately. If you are thinking of purchasing these SACD's I DO NOT recommend the first album for the reasons above.

    I will also take a listen to the other SACD's and see what they sound like and report back with those.

    Anyone have the opportunity to compare these to the DVD-A's?
