    Anyone think there is any chance of The Dukes of Stratosphear being mixed into 5.1? I like the Dukes far more than XTC itself

    The Dukes in Surround would be mind blowing

    If that did happen, it would not happen until after all of the main XTC albums were mixed and released and in 5.1 surround, and at the rate they are going of 1 album per year, they are not going to finish until 2024...

    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"

    Not so sure - if there's issues with finding tapes and the Dukes ones are available, maybe they'll go for it....and it'd be awesome. So much in that stuff for a 5.1 mix to be very adventurous, keeping with the psychedelic aura of the records...maybe not Flaming Lips extreme but I bet Steven would love to let loose a little and some fun with that stuff.

    Well I don't even know about the status of the Dukes' tapes. They could very well be missing too right now, but hopefully after the 5th surround sound series release this Fall, they will either find another full set of tapes from the '80s era, or they will just have Steven Wilson remix "Apple Venus" or "Wasp Star".
    Either way, there's still lots of great albums from their catalogue to get through!

    If I remember rightly Andy ahs said that some of the Dukes stuff was recorded live in the mix which was gong to make a 5.1 difficult as some re-recording would have to take place

    I would love them to get the 5.1 treatment and I am sure there is someone who could 'demix' the live elements.

    Now that we know that "Black Sea" is the next Surround Sound Series title, time for a little speculation concerning extra tracks and whether or not they will be remixed!

    There's three bonus tracks on the current CD edition: "Smokeless Zone", "Don't Lose Your Temper", and "The Somnambulist".
    There's also a song called "Take This Town" that was recorded during the "Black Sea" sessions for the film "Times Square". It later appeared on the "Rag & Bone Buffet" CD.
    Then we have alternate single versions of album tracks like "Respectable Street" (with different lyrics) and "Towers of London", so I'm very curious to know how many of these tracks have also been remixed for this edition!

    Also it would be cool if they manage to include this documentary on the Blu-Ray as well!

    Very happy that it's Black Sea! This and Big Express were the two I was most hoping for.

    All likely candidates for this edition! And that BBC documentary is great, I hope they add it. Of course there's also the music videos for "Respectable Street", "Towers of London" and "Generals & Majors". The other thing that I'd like to see here would be some live material. XTC was still touring at the time and they were a great live band. Some live audio (or video if they have it) would be great.

    Fabulous!! Black Sea was my introduction to XTC back in '81. It made a huge impact on me and remains my personal fave (along with English Settlement).

    If the other XTC Surround Sound Series releases are any indication, I would not expect any live audio or video material to be included.
    I would expect to see demos & rehearsal audio, along with the promotional videos too.

    I made the mistake of buying Nonsuch, and I won't make the same mistake with any more XTC releases.
    I tried to sell it, but eventually gave up and traded it in for next to nothing. As D.T. would say ... "Sad".

    I listen to Drums and Wires ten times more than I listen to Nonsuch. Glad I have both however.

    Couldn't be happier with this.

    My first WAG was Black Sea or English Settlement.
    Perpendicular nailed it right off.
    I say he should get a free copy!
    My next prediction is that the usual suspects on SHF will bitch, bitch, bitch about BD only again.

    Now, when?

    Sept\Oct?

    I am VERY happy it is Black Sea. That and English Settlement are 2 of my favorites. I will continue to buy all the releases, but this one just made my day. Please let us have the ability to buy ALL of the XTC releases. Listening to the cd as I type.

    I would have been happy with any of the older albums but good to know what it is now.
    Black Sea is a great album and will sound even better in glorious 5.1.

    I am so sorry that album does not speak to you. Tastes cannot be argued, but Nonsuch is a near desert-island disc for me.

    I feel the same way about some of the Rush/Marillion/Dream Theater catalog. People are passionate about it, I wish that it hit me the right way, but it doesn't. My loss.

    As long as the tapes are there, the other albums will happen, but given their pace so far, it will take a while for all of them to come out.


    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"
