    I suspect mine will take a while too, coming from Burning Shed to the US...with just basic shipping/no tracking. Fine by me - been forever anyway. I guess when I get back from Chile, it will be in my mail box.

    Coming soon in 2017: "Songs from the Wood" (Jethro Tull); "Misplaced Childhood" (Marillion); "Eye in the Sky" (The Alan Parsons Project) and "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"

    On my system the vocals/center channel was to loud. I used Audacity and lowered the center channel by 6 dB on all tracks except tracks 2 and 7. Now it's perfect IMO.

    Also read (on BJH forum) that Octoberon is going to released in july

    Given what happened to Woolly I am surprised this is getting a reissue with 5.1 mix Great Album though

    O.K. BJH fans......leaving out "Once Again", which of these other three releases is the most musically consistent LP, i.e. no fodder? Most interesting or challenging?
    Since they are still available at the Shed I'll take a shot. Thanks.

    I would say Everyone is Everybody Else is the most enduring and listenable of the three, followed by Gone to Earth. However, it is also the least challenging, as its songs seem more derivative of other songs/groups of that era.

    Thanks for the reply, I'll get both while they are still available. Its been so long since I listened to them....I do recall liking "Once Again". Now if only they bring all the Fireballet discography back into production.

    Personally I think Everyone Is Everybody Else is the best one of the three, it's just a shame they couldn't mix For No One in 5.1 and didn't even try a Penteo upmix or even just add the stereo version at the end...

    The bad news is that the band (and their management) confirmed to me on Facebook that "it has proved impossible to track down the original multi-track tapes of 'Time Honoured Ghosts', so there are no plans for a deluxe edition of that at the moment. Hopefully one day "

    They went on to say that "All the other [tapes] were in the Polydor/Universal archives, but not Ghosts, possibly because it was recorded and mixed in America."

    Surround yourself with the best.

    Coming soon in 2017: "Songs from the Wood" (Jethro Tull); "Misplaced Childhood" (Marillion); "Eye in the Sky" (The Alan Parsons Project) and "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"
