Went on a music buying spree recently, and was excited to get some SACD's (hadn't bought any in 5-6 years as I thought the format was dead) and try out a BluRay Audio only disc for the first time.

Allman Brothers at Fillmore East - live recordings were made for 5.1 and this really shines. Stormy Monday sounds incredible and has two things you rarely get in a Blues song - great musicianship and great recording quality.

Allman Bros - Eat a Peach - Little Martha may be the finest acoustic guitar recording I have heard.

John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman - this is way better than the regular CD I have. Hartman's voice is amazing.

Miles Davis - Relaxin' - early Miles that still sounds amazing in mono.

John Coltrane - A Love Supreme - very solid, but not as big a step up from CD.

Bob Marley - Legend - This BluRay Audio disc is certainly better than the CD, but is poorly mixed with low dynamic range and does not take advantage of the incredible potential of BluRay.

Oh and about 50 other CD's of mostly Jazz, with a little 80's and some new releases.

Any details? Curious minds want to know.

Still in the insurance industry but moving from the carrier side to the brokerage side. Staying in Austin and not as much travel. Overall a great opportunity - I'm very blessed in so many ways, not the least of which is an AMAZING and supportive wife!

I'll fill in more details next time we chat - hopefully when you and P come to Texas!
