    Yes, good find, and I'll be preordering these too! Everyone is Everygody Else is kind of their statement piece, I think, even if portions were sort of derivative of music of their contemporaries. By Gone to Earth, they were starting to wane, IMHO.

    I'm also curious to see who done the work on these releases. Not one of my top bands but I enjoy them enough to buy these two for a decent price.

    The other 64K dollar question is will these be DVD-A/V or just DVD-V?
    Because it's Esoteric, things could go either way for these releases.
    I'm REALLY hoping for DVD-A/V just cause we need more and more releases to help keep the format going!

    Coming soon in 2017: "Eye in the Sky" (The Alan Parsons Project), "Black Sea" (XTC) and more from Gentle Giant!

    I understand the 24/96 FLAC download is also SQ encoded.

    A dream comes true. I saw BJH in Hamburg in several concerts LIVE. They were absolut fantastic. And now- in 5.1. I think, they will bring most of their Albums in Surround Sound in the next future.
    Thank you ESOTERIC. Thank you so much.

    It's very promising to see "Cherry Red"/Esoteric" continue in the surround release business.

    It bodes well for me and likely many others as the label specializes in PROG ROCK CLASSICS, many of which are in demand for a SURROUND or QUAD remaster.


    Hopefully we will see many more of their artists 5.1 or quad reissues in the coming months.


    KEEP 'EM COMING ESOTERIC.

    Gone to Earth in 5.1? Things just keep getting better. This was an album I listened to constantly back in '77. A definite BJH favorite. The debut I'm not that familiar with, but I'll remedy that between now and June. Hopefully, Time Honoured Ghosts is also in the pipeline. Thanks for the heads up, Fletch.

    I have no idea why I was unaware of this band until Once Again was released in multichannel. Perhaps they did not receive enough publicity in the US. I listened to Gone to Earth yesterday on YouTube. Very impressive album and definitely a must buy for me in 5.1. If not MLP, I hope it is at least DTS.

    I think it will definitely have the latter. The former is currently a tossup, but at least we know that Esoteric are certainly not against the release of DVD-A/V discs as evidenced by the recent Anthony Phillips releases, so like I always say, Hope Springs Eternal!

    One little detail that's not been brought to our attention so far is this (for "Everyone is Everybody Else"):

    This edition includes two CDs and a DVD, and features a re-master of the original album mix, along with stunning 2016 stereo and 5.1 surround mixes of the album (with the exception of For No One - omitted due to the multi-track master tapes having long since vanished)
    But then there's this:
    The set also includes new stereo and 5.1 Surround sound mixes of a different version of Child of the Universe, recorded in February 1975 for an American single release.
    (Just thought I would point all of this out since it hasn't been said yet.)

    Surround yourself with the best.

    Coming soon in 2017: "Eye in the Sky" (The Alan Parsons Project), "Black Sea" (XTC) and more from Gentle Giant!

    I'm friends with Mark Powell on Facebook. You will see his name on several reissues of classic albums (mostly progressive and many containing surround sound.)
    Here's a recent Facebook post from him this morning concerning the Barclay James Harvest reissues:
    Listening to the final authored 5.1 mixes of Everyone is Everybody Else by Barclay James Harvest. They sound fabulous. Hats off to Craig, Paschal and the authoring maestro Ray Shulman for such a wonderful job. Very proud of this as it was a difficult one to nail due to state of the multi tracks but a great team effort. Out in June on Esoteric followed by Gone to Earth, Octoberon & XII in July and August.
    So that's the good news. "Octoberon" and "XII" will follow after "Everyone is Everybody Else" and "Gone to Earth".
    The bad news? Ray Shulman's name was brought up, so you know what that means, right? DVD-Video.
    Oh well, you win some, and you lose some, but anyway, that's the latest round-up!

    Surround yourself with the best.

    Ray Schulman might just do bluray as was done for the two Gentle Giant's Octupus and Power and the Glory.fwiw I like the authoring they do.

    "Everybody is Everyone Else" and "Gone to Earth" are already confirmed as DVD releases, and the same will probably be true for the eventual releases of "Octoberon" and "XII".
    Not only does Ray Shulman have absolutely no say in deciding the formats for these releases, but Esoteric are not likely to ever support Blu-Ray as the authoring and manufacturing costs are probably too high for a small, independent label like them.
    They could have commissioned Neil Wilkes to author DVD-A/V releases like he's already doing for the Anthony Phillips reissue series (also on Esoteric), but alas, we'll just have to live with lossy surround audio yet again. It's not a great trend, but it's better than not getting any surround releases at all, that's for sure!

    Surround yourself with the best.

    Coming soon in 2017: "Eye in the Sky" (The Alan Parsons Project), "Black Sea" (XTC) and more from Gentle Giant!
    Already released: "Songs from the Wood" (Jethro Tull); "Misplaced Childhood" (Marillion); and "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"
