In May, we announced the return of the Mobile Fidelity label and their release of three Stereo SACDs by jazz vocalist Patricia Barber. (See our previous story on Mobile Fidelity’s return.)
Since that time, the Mobile Fidelity SACD releases of Cafe Blue (Mobile Fidelity SACD 2002), Modern Cool (Mobile Fidelity SACD 2003) and Nightclub (Mobile Fidelity SACD 2004) have been very popular with audiophiles and SACD fans alike who welcomed the return of the Mobile Fidelity label with open arms.
Today we have more good news. Mobile Fidelity has announced that they plan to release two more SACDs.
The upcoming releases are Hot Buttered Soul by Isaac Hayes (Mobile Fidelity SACD 2005) and Sonny Rollins Plus 4 (Mobile Fidelity SACD 2006). As with the first three Mobile Fidelity releases, both albums will be Hybrid Layer SACDs, playable on both CD and SACD players. The Isaac Hayes album will be a Hybrid Stereo SACD, while the Sonny Rollins disc will be a Hybrid Mono SACD.
The Elusive Disc and Music Direct web sites are now taking preorders for these two upcoming Mobile Fidelity SACD releases.
The folks at Mobile Fidelity tell us that additional releases and a full release schedule are coming in the near future. We’ll watch for more details and bring them to you at that time.
