Hello everyone !
I'm new here and I would like to ask a little question, and hoping it will be heard by Peter himself, but I doubt . But hey, who knows ?
I would like to know why there is no more SACD release of Peter Gabriel's discs ?
Even the ones which were released are now out of print and reaching astronomic prices on the second hand market ! (Just look to the prices of "2" or "3" !)
These incredible prices prove that there is HIGH demand for these SACD titles !
All of the SACDs released were truly superb, especially Up ! The sound quality is FAR superior to normal CDs ! So why the SACD project is totally forgotten ? This format is VERY far from being dead like many people pretend ! In fact, it's alive and well ! The problem is that there is no more release other than Classical Music, so we can't prove to the Recording Companies that we are want to buy SACD !
People always say that there are no more european press plant but there is still one in Austria which is running full time ! You can just contact the Super Audio Center (www.superaudiocenter.com) and you will have all the informations needed to produce SACD !
So please, give us more SACD of Peter Gabriel !
Thank you very very much !

I have to agree SACD or Blu-ray audio would be great. I only have shaking the tree and I love the sound difference over cd. Please give us Hi res music again :-]

I also agree. I was very disappointed when I searched for the SACDs at the WOMAD shop. Are there any plans to release PGs CDs in BD-Audio or SACD again?

Surely there's a lot of demand out there given the prices that people are paying.
It's the same with the few Bowie ones that were released. They're impossible to get at reasonable prices.
Maybe they're looking at Blu-ray releases?

There may be a certain demand for these releases by collectors and completists, but in general, the interest for rock releases in the SACD format died off fairly quickly, and it costs too much to support a specialty format with little demand.
