This is the only reference to this new release I have found. It does not appear on Challenge Records' own website.

Er, no it hasn't, if, as I did, you search for new releases and also under Al Ayre Espanol. However, I see it is listed if you select "click here for all releases" under "Challenge Classics" on the Catalogue page. Thanks.

A pity it, like so many other recent SACD releases, is not listed on SACD.net - unless I am mistaken again!

By the way, isn't it frustrating that only one Ars Antiqua Austria recording on Challenge is SACD? The lovely Fux disc especially would have been even lovelier with the clarity of SACD. The sole SACD disc is the latest one, however, so perhaps we shall see the group's further recordings appearing on SACD. It would be nice if more labels adopted a Channel-Classics-like consistency of all new releases being on SACD.

New titles posted on this forum don't get added to the database.

New titles submitted using the Submit facility (above) do.

The rules for submitting new release information on the Submit facility are so restrictive that it is difficult to do so without first buying the disc, which means it will already be out for some time before it is listed on SACD.net.

Sadly, this means SACD.net is no longer my first port of call to find out about new and upcoming releases.

1. The label can submit full details prior to release. It's not difficult. It's also FREE exposure.

2. The label can submit the disc to a site reviewer prior to release and have the reviewer add the details on their behalf, plus contribute a review to encourage (or not) interest.

3. As a catch-all, individuals purchasing an already released disc can submit the details. Also not difficult. There are minimum requirements for having a disc listed here (like does the disc contain multichannel content, not mentioned in most posts here) which the submission process specifically prompts for.

Presumably if the disc is of sufficient worth/interest it will satisfy at least one of the above.

I mentioned in a an earlier post that MDT (and also Amazon UK) list 20 -24 August releases and a few September ones, the majority of which are not listed here. The labels involved seem to be ARS, Aeolus, Challenge, Arts, Harmonia Mundi, LSO live, Col Legno and even Channel. The number involved seems to point to the fact that many, many companies do not see the importance of SA-CD.net and that the current method of listing is not adequate to maintain the site's relevance as a source of news and info on software releases. As far as trying to encourage companies to submit I can only suggest that we members email or write to defaulting companies to point out the error of their ways. However I am also of the opinion that it is the responsibility of the site to meet its own requirements when trying to be the prime source of information on available catalogue and support the format to the hilt.

I feel like we're all starting to beat a dead horse here.

Zeus has made his listing policy clear, and he seems to have no objections to people using this thread for posting upcoming releases we all spot on other websites.

Why don't we all just leave it at that?

Counting Crows - August And Everything After

http://store.acousticsounds.com/d/84557/Counting_Crows-August_And_Everything_After-Hybrid_SACD

Great news, soundboy. Counting Crows is a surprisingly talented group and that AP is releasing this album is a cause for rejoicing. Adam Durwitz, the CC's lead singer is a force to reckon with.

Keep them coming, AP.

pacwin noted this release above ... exciting ... coming out tomorrow (1 August 2012):

* Sviatoslav Richter
* Bach Well Tempered Clavier --- 4 SACDs

Recorded in 1970-3 in Schloß Klesheim in Salzburg on a Bosendorfer ... tuned about a half-semi tone higher than normal pitch(!), if I recall correctly (though I have heard someone conjecture that maybe they sped up the tapes!?)

This is easily my favourite recording of the Well Tempered Clavier ... better than Glenn Gould .. and one of my all-time favourite CDs. Delighted to see it transferred by Sony from analogue to SACD ... hopefully as a direct DSD transfer.

It is available at HMV Japan, CDbanq.com, cdjapan.co.jp and Amazon Japan, ... for about US$105 for the 4 SACD set. Just search on 'Richter SACD' at each site, and it will pop up.
