    Sweet! I'm not a huge EJ fan, but I seem to have accidentally started collecting marbles and scarves.

    Good spotting.
    I agree with you that these albums should have come out.
    Universal don't share our viewpoint, and have aggressively stopped supporting SACD, DVD-A and Blu-ray - at least in the case of Elton's classic album re releases.
    I'm blue in the face trying to get them to see the merit.
    Logic does not prevail in this instance. Elton's first set of 5.1 releases outsold every other artist, except maybe Dark Side Of The Moon.
    There is an alternative in the works, so maybe someday soon you will see all the EJ titles that I have remixed in surround re released as discs and available for download, playable and burnable with an easy codec.
    Thanks for tuning in.
    Oh, those four albums sound incredible ! - and are ready to go.
    Greg
    that's great. should we ask him if he need any sort of our support? sort of previous action for the
    lossless "Aqualung"disc.
    also never been "die hard" fan but got all SACD, except "GYBR" which i did prefered in DVD-Audio format.
    mr. Greg Penny did outstanding work on those albums in both - sonically and on surround mix.

    Hope that "alternative" will shows up as soon as possible. Too many years wasted on waiting what was already done.

    Good job, Ryan, getting to Greg Penny.

    It's strange that UMG has recently released a 5.1 DVD-A and Blu-Ray by Rush, then the 3 Rush Boxes w/DVD-A's in them, yet they won't release these 4 titles with a built in market equal to or greater than the Rush market.

    i got feeling that Neil Young is pretty much correct in his prediction about HiRes releases in 2012.
    you guys just take a look back in 2011 and how many new and re-issued prints from pop genre
    have came out in single year. albeit costly but seems sells very well. another good sign - the word
    HiRes Surround become more common in music world and more artists shows their interest to it.
    and that's all after the death of Surround format in music countless times was proclaimed by the
    industry and mass media.

    To have "Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player," "Caribou," "Rock of the Westies" and "Blue Moves" would complete most if not all the Elton John titles I would want, or at least was most interested in back in the day. I used to play the stereo records though the Quad Amp with interesting results.

    Now if they want to do more titles in surround, I'll snag those too. I'm looking forward to what this "Big" announcement is.

    Greg did a great job on the 5.1 Elton John mixes. Heard his talk on them (and was able to hear them pre-SACD release) at one of the Surround Conferences and wrote it up for High Fidelity Review.

    Lucky you. Do you have a link for that review (if there is a digital copy) ? I'd love to read it.

    Thanks. And I'll second your interest in Caribou in 5.1 SACD Surround. I'm there as well!

    A response from Acoustic Sounds/Analogue Productions regarding these EJ titles:

    Thanks for your suggestions. All great titles, to be sure. While I can't promise you any specific titles - for a number of reasons, one being that it's not always possible to secure any given title - I can say that we plan to stay aggressive and continue to bring out very high quality, big-time titles on SACD.

    Done. I'll let you know if I hear back.

    I basically thanked him for his exemplary work with the whole EJ surround series I've enjoyed since release... and told him I was holding my breath for 'Caribou'.

    Record companies, I think they operate in a different world to the rest of us. In the very early 90's, RCA issued Dolby Surround remixes of Tomita's celebrated 1970's releases. They issued five CD's in the series, which, when you stood them in your CD rack, spelled 'T-O-M-I-T' on the spine. Yes, that's right, they neglected to release the final CD (the 'A' of his name) in what you would presume was a series of six, rather than five! That last Tomita D.S. CD (presumably 1979's 'The Bermuda Triangle', if they were supposed to be in order) has never seen the light of day.

    I have really enjoyed the released ones. It killed me they didn't do Don't Shoot Me. I had no idea Penny did Blue Moves as well.
