Hello SACD listeners!

I have been buying SACDs from Amazon for years but recently all the new titles just aren't listed anymore.

Only this one made it and it's unavailable right now:

I Robot - Alan Parsons Project

All other titles I'm interested in are just not listed at all, example:

  • Otis Redding - Otis Redding Sings Soul
  • Jimi Hendrix - Machine Gun
  • Jimi Hendrix - People, Hell and Angels
  • Dire Straits - Making Movies
  • Dire Straits - Communique
  • Dire Straits - Dire Straits

I can find them on less popular resellers' websites but... they don't ship to Singapore :-/

Did Amazon give up on SACDs?

Julien

In the end I solved the problem by moving all my SACD business to elusivedisc.com.

Not only do they have a bigger SACD inventory, they're also less expensive than Amazon.

Ex:

The Alan Parsons Project - I Robot Amazon = US$41.53 (it's constantly going up)
The Alan Parsons Project - I Robot Elusive Disc = US$29.99 and they usually have 15% or 20% discount codes

They also stock all the other SACD publishers.

Even Amazon Japan isn't listing recent SACD releases. And now ECM got in exclusive agreement called TOWER RECORDS/UNIVERSAL ECM SA-CD SELECTION to remaster/release some of its 70's catalog in Japan only through Tower/Yahoo:

    Release in September
  • Keith Jarrett - Standard Trio Vol.2
  • Chick Corea -Trio Music
  • Pat Metheny - Off Lamp

    Release in December
  • Gary Peacock - Tales of Another
  • Richie Beirach - Hubris
  • Steve Kuhn - Trans

Sure do. After ordering, Elusive's Angela Clymer from the order department has been very helpful to split shipments and apply discounts.

So far, no issue. Good packing as well!
