Tensions during the recording of the White Album had run high, so much so that not only did their engineer, Geoff Emerick bail temporarily, but even ...

Universal Music Group (UMG) had at first pledged its support for SACD but now they rest gently right on the middle of the fence having shipped their first batch of DVD-Audio titles. The question is what are the two other majors doing with the new formats? EMI has released about a dozen titles on DVD-Audio to date and have a limited number of new titles coming from artists like Bonnie Raitt (Nick of Time) and more Beach Boys (Surf’s Up) and as many as eight other titles to be released by March 2004.
