    I dunno. Happy, happy for new stuff. I have all the individual titles already in surround...so don't need those. My guess is this will be a very expensive box set. Bummer......I wish it were something I didn't already have.

    Very cool though, lots of stuff.

    at £150 for what is essentially 1 Blu Ray to much for me given that they have not included the old BSS mix on the blu Ray as well as Jakko's Mix. It would have been better if they had remixed the other albums.

    Now Carl Palmer is the only surviving member I am surprised the 5.1s are getting any release given his previous comments on remixes

    My sentiments exactly. They could at least have sweetened the deal with the original quadraphonic mix of Welcome Back My Friends ... or Pictures at an Exhibition in digital surround (instead of analog Dolby Surround). This is just another cash grab. Most of us have the individual multichannel releases, and it is not unlikely that ELP fans already have the vinyl LPs ... and let's face it, the later albums (after Works) are pretty mediocre.

    Too much of too little interest on this one...yes, would have enjoyed a 5.1 of Pictures or a clear version of the Welcome quad...

    Why is the live '73 stuff vinyl only? And what's the sound quality of the '72 show? Don't need yet more copies of the original albums, and as decent as the band was in 92/93 I don't really need more live stuff from that tour as it's pretty much all the same.

    $152 + shipping isn't that bad a price given all that's included.

    Wonder if there is any chance (doubt it very much) that the 5.1 mix of 3rd Impression has been "adjusted" at all?

    What a waste. Inferior BSS 5.1, and no quad mix of Welcome Back My Friends...

    They have the quad masters, there's NO EXCUSE for this. Why are they wasting our time with a repackaging of things we already have?


    Such a waste.....it's just a money grab release.

    This would be the perfect opportunity to correct that blunder.
    If they did, it certainly makes this release a little more worthwhile.

    I don't know what you guys are thinking, but I am grateful that they did not include some small amount of unreleased surround. This is one less big expensive box to use up my storage space and money. If there are more mixes, bring them on as stand alones. But I am hating spending $150 a shot for a single mix, although I have been known to do it.

    For me, this is a money grasp, not a money grab.

    My too sense!

    Maybe the quad mix of "Welcome Back My Friends" will be hidden somewhere on one of the Blu-Rays!

    The glaring omissions are still missing and still glaring!

    Not mentioned:
    Original stereo mixes in 24/96 HD flat transfer quality for ELP (s/t), Tarkus, Pictures, & WBMFTTSTNE
    (These are either lost? or being held back for some future release. Can only speculate why they were not included on the DVD releases of the above.)
    The lost side 2 tracks from ELP (s/t). (Again for HD stereo masters or 5.1 remixing.)
    So... was the shockingly flawed and unfinished Jakko 5.1 remix of BSS finished/fixed? (It was shockingly obvious why they pulled it from the DVDA release!)
    (My guess is no. Probably the same disaster as was released briefly in 2014.)
    The Works albums were recently released in HD. (On HD Tracks and as usual with no providence. Likely the real deal but... Someone who is more of a fan of those will have to chime in and verify that. But, no mention of that for this box.)
    No mention of a HD copy of Pictures. Good thing we were treated to a MFSL pressing of this one all those years ago!
    So the quad mix of WBMFTTSTNE is lost then? The original stereo mix too? Or one or both being withheld for something?

    Cool boxed collection and if this is truly all that is left... really?
    If you already have the original Eddy Offord mixes on 1st pressing vinyl and then the select few HD masters and (even fewer) 5.1 remixes already released, this purchase would be just for those two unreleased 72 & 73 offerings which are most likely awesome.

    I'd kind of like to hear the story of weather or not all the unreleased stuff is truly lost or being held back for some reason.
    Looks like a great collection of all the remains though.

    Sorry, I just cannot get excited about this release. A single BD~A containing previously released 5.1 remixes with NO QUAD remix of Welcome Back My Friends.....and remastering the original 11 albums on RBCD when, at the very least, a 96/24 BD~A stereo remaster of ALL 11 albums would've been more preferable.

    I will definitely pass on this one.

    If all those stereo masters have been lost, at least come to terms with that and get to work preserving what's left! HD transfers sourced from the original vinyl 1st pressings would at least be nice for a compromise. That would simply be understood and well received.

    Recycling those CD copies... So, is that when the masters were lost? When those CDs were produced some years ago now? What's the story there. Accidents happen and they suck but out with the story already and lets collect the remains and move on. Obviously the MFSL vinyl pressing of Pictures would be a fine source for HD flac files!

    If this is all really the greed driven thing still holding these back for a future release... Jeeze really?! I mean, I've seen worse. (The Pink Floyd catalog comes to mind.)

    It seems so wrong that this bands catalog is in such shambles. I mean, these were giants with god himself behind the board (going by the name Offord at the time). I suppose that's partly because of the level we have been spoiled with all these HD master releases and SW 5.1 remixes the last few years.

    Are you all sure about lost masters of the catalog albums? I can imagine that they simply like the existing mastering jobs and are going with them for now. I personally like the MFSL mastering for three of the main albums. HD is not a deal breaker when there are such hq masters out there already.

    I don't see it as the catalog being in shambles.

    Pure speculation only. Either they're waiting for later to release them or they don't have them anymore. I don't know. Now you and I can listen to our MFSL vinyl and between that and everything else the ELP collection is in better shape than most. But those are collectors items now. Vinyl systems are $5000 investments give or take to even get started. And here in 2017 they have these pretty deluxe editions of these albums with some Wilson 5.1 remixes and everything. But HD masters of the original mixes for only a couple of them. Could be screwing up too and no more than that. Seems shocking that such a screw up could happen with the major labels but there's been worse.

    Anyway this looks to be a collection of the best releases available (sans the originals mentioned) all in one spot. Seems to correspond to said previous deluxe editions being out of stock in their web store too. What a coincidence.

    As much as the price, one issue for me is physical storage of the set. Immersion and Early Years sets have made finding a place to put things very difficult. Can I just buy what I want and turf the rest, please?

    It's hard to believe that "from the manticore vaults" yelded such a pointless releases as the not-so-polished bootlegs and can't include the WBMF quad mix in the Bluray. It is not the best quad mix out there, but at least ONE decent version could be inserted, since the Q8 had duplication problems.
    Or maybe it's bette that way... so they can do a later WBMF boxset.

    Order placed...

    Don't care , but, to an ELP fan like me, the price is quite good for all the goodies it has...and having the 5.1 mixes in BLURAY- heck yes...

    As for WBMFTTSTNE, I have never been a fan of the sound of the release , and I think a Quad release would be disappointing up to a point...(hey, it'd be great if it happened!)..the performances are great , although, the one in Mar y Sol is the MOST "spirited" one I've heard so far--

    Only thing missing is video content...but , ahh, what the hell...
