Is Sony abandoning the SACD format? Remember those 15 Bob Dylan albums that Sony released as Hybrid SACDs in digipaks a couple of years ago? Then for some mysterious reason they released these as remastered CDs in jewel cases, when there was no need to as the SACDs had the remastered CD layer on already. Well for anyone else who is waiting for the second wave of Dylan SACDs, don't hold your breath. "Bob Dylan" (the first album) and "The Times They Are A Changin'" have just been reissued, but straight on to remastered CDs with no SACD release. Is this a sign of the oft rumoured abandoning of the format by Sony? Just a thought - before abandoning a new format, wouldn't it be an idea to promote it properly first?
