|Linn Records now (many months after the CD release, it seems) offers 24-bit resolution downloads of William Orbit's latest album, My Oracle Lives Uptown, in FLAC and (I suppose) lossless WMA. Several standard/lower resolutions are also available.
I bought this album on CD the moment it came out because I've become a bit of a William Orbit collector the last couple of years. Now I'm hesitant to purchase these files but if they released them on SACD I'd buy them blindly. They're all stereo but I'm sure Orbit would love do a 5.1 remix. In fact I can hardly think of an artist whose soundscapes lend themselves better to multichannel.
I wrote to Linn Records and this is what they replied:
|There are no plans at the moment for either releasing 'My Oracle Lives
Uptown' on SACD or his other albums. His albums are already available
on CD through another label so I do not think this would be an option.
Many thanks for giving us your feedback though, we do appreciate it.
