SACD's to stay away from

For some reason this post I created last week was pulled from AG. I don't know why as nothing I was aware of broke the rules. we go again.

What SACD's have you purchased that have been a major disappointment? For the most part I am a fan of the format but there have been those discs that didn't live up to my expectations. For example:

Boston - Boston
Journey - Greatest hits
Hollywood G.Hits - Eric Kunzel (telarc)
Some pipe organ music on telarc(can't think of the title)
Deep Purple - Machine Head
Thanks. I haven't given up, in fact, I really love SACD. I like it much better than the DVD-A format, and have bought a ton of the SACD discs, mostly jazz and classical, and I have been extremely happy. Some discs just seem to be done better than others. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road on SACD is a revalation, as is the great mix of Dark Side of the Moon.

But some orchestral works and great vocal recording really have not been any better than the red books that I have heard, and they still don't sound as good as vinyl. But, it's getting there.
I agree on the Journey Greatest Hits and would also Suggest you stay way from TRAIN Calling all Angels. Horrible sounding SACD disc...

I found the Norah Jones about the same as the CD. That said, it still sounds pretty good. I just remembered another one I have that's no better than the CD. Santana - Abraxus
First, I disagree with Macdadtexas about DVD-A. My experience, all Classical BTW, is the opposite--ie DVD-As generally sound better than SACDs...BUT...both CAN sound fabulous!

Here are some I've bought and put quickly in my SELL stack:
1. Williams--Close Encounters...Kind, soundtrack; Classics HDAD 2005. This is a 192/24 and 96/24 2-channel DVD-A. I love this music but forgot how bad--multi-mono-miked and compartmented--the original recording was.
2. Shostakovich Sym. #7, 'Leningrad'; Gergiev cond. Kirov and Rotterdam orchestras; Philips SACD # 470 623-2. Again, too compartmented. Doesn't sound like a real orchestra playing in a real concert hall.
3. Mahler Sym #3; Chailly cond. Royal Concertgebouw, Philips SACD #470 652-2. Boring performance. I like my Mahler played more strongly than Chailly's.
4. Stravinsky 'Firebird' and more; Dorati cond. London SO; Mercury SACD # 470 643-2. This is a 3-channel conversion of an original 3-channel recording. Unfortunately for me, it's from Mercury's 'fierce' period, when their Living Presence recordings were done with the microfones too close to the orchestra. It sounds very hard and strident. PROBABLY it's a very accurate representation of exactly what's on the analog tapes.
