Favorite SACDs?

Recommended Posts

I realized the other day my new Sony UBP-X700 can play SACDs.  Nice!  Anyone have any favorites they recommend?

Black and White Night. Roy Orbison’s PBS dinner club concert. Well done and accurately recorded from the start. It has and requires no enhancements.

Thanks everyone!  Of the bands listed, I really like Steely Dan, Pink Floyd, The Allman Brothers and Dire Straits so I think I'll start with those!

I was typing the following when you just replied, above...

 

Many of the above are ones that I own and that I'd also recommend. 

 

In Jazz, the three Yellowjackets multichannel SACDs are superb: Time Squared, Altered State, Lifecycle. Also the Xiomara "La Voz" (the voice) disc is outstanding by Chesky.  Jimmy Cobb/Roy Hargrove Jazz in the key of Blue is good, also by Chesky.  Any of the Norah Jones first three albums are very good.  They get pretty loud after that point.  Rebecca Pidgeon's "The Raven" (multichannel) is also very good by Chesky.

 

There is one Police (Every Breath You Take - The Classics) that's a multichannel SACD that's good that I acquired recently for a reasonable price at Discogs.

 

In soundtracks, "A Beautiful Mind" soundtrack is really good (multichannel SACD). In new Bluegrass, the Nickel Creek "This Side" multichannel SACD is very good. 

 

In folk/rock, James Taylor's Hourglass (multichannel) is outstanding. 

 

In classical/Christmas music that's also audiophile reference standard, Cantate Domino by Oscar's Motet Choir was a standard at RMAF a few years ago (stereo SACD). 

 

Roughly 90-95% of the best SACDs that I own and that comprise the SACD catalog are classical.  I'll list a few of the best:

 

Bach Goldberg Variations (Jory Vinikour) - multichannel--two discs

Frederic Chopin - Artur Pizarro (Linn) - multichannel

Frederic Chopin: Etudes - Ingrid Fliter - multichannel

Handel Concerti Grossi Opus 6 - The Avison Ensemble (Linn) - multichannel

Mannheim String Symphonies Vols. 1 and 2, Chamber Orchestra of the New Dutch Academy - multichannel

Mendelssohn Violin Concerto, Symphony #3 - Scottish Chamber Orchestra (Linn) multichannel

The Messiah, Dublin Version 1742 - Dunedin Consort dir. John Butt (Linn) - multichannel

Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A, KV 622, Clarinet Quintet KV 581 - Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Marriner - multichannel

Russian Violin Concertos - Russian National Orchestra, Julia Fisher - multichannel

...
