5.0 out of 5 stars confused, 3 Jan. 2014
By 
This review is from: Getz / Gilberto (Audio CD)
This edition of the famous Getz/Gilberto album is being confused with other editions, so most of the reviews listed are only partially relevant.
This review relates to the K2HD edition, released in 2009, and is definitely not SACD format, as some reviewers have stated.

Amazon UK & US list an SACD edition produced by Analogue Productions, which was released in 2012. So when you see reviews written in 1998 supposedly reviewing the Analogue Productions SACD edition, as well as this K2HD edition, confusion is inevitable. I just wish that Amazon exercised a little more care over such matters.

I have the original vinyl album and find that the K2HD edition compares very favourably. I have not yet heard the SACD edition and would be interested to know how it compares to the K2HD version.

Thanks for the advice...Wish I had read it before ordering the item!

Still confused though... went to Discogs site, (who are usually quite reliable) to find out more info. Looked for a 1999 CD release (from Amazon Product details listed below) and I find a listing for an unofficial Russian release! Checked all CD releases with similar art work and similar track listing.

Don't need the SACD edition, don't have a SACD player. Just a good quality Stereo Recording (Original Recording Remastered) with the two bonus tracks a good informative booklet, Original Artwork...and preferably in a Jewelcase not a dreaded Digipak! and at a bargain price!

Have to agree, Amazon don't make it easy, with their ambiguous, incomplete and sometimes just plain wrong information... made worse by mixing customer reviews of CD, LP, AC, MP3 formats (and all the various album, versions, editions, releases etc).

Anyway, 'something' going to arrive soon, it... may even be the famous Getz/Gilberto album!
