I thought they had sold out and been deleted long ago, with sellers on Amazon asking up to $90 each for some titles but, on analysing stock holdings around the world, we discovered that Greece had a stash of each title. It’s not big quantities so we are initially making them exclusively available through the 4AD store.
These SACD copies were mastered by the audiophile Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (who have issued vinyl on two titles) and manufactured in Japan, in paper sleeves. Though SACD is a niche, high resolution digital format and needs a separate player, the discs are hybrid so they also have a ‘layer’ that plays on regular CD players.
