    Yup, absolutely the last one... walking on the sun if you don't buy now!

    Anyway... I just loved the album overall anyway so it coulda been 5 mono
    channels and I'd have still liked it!!
    I can't really add anything more to what has been said before so I'll
    leave it at a 9, only for the lyric thing.

    I believe this title has been offered at $100+ before and likely will be again. I can tell from mymusicfix2 feedback that people buy many items at absurd prices but I sure don't understand it.

    It is a great DVD-A and terrific deal at the give away price at Wal-Mart, Amazon.com and Music For a Song.

    Amazon.com marketsellers have it for the low price. I don't know if any will ship to the UK but I suspect the price would be prohibitive if they do. No Wal-Mart near me is carrying the cutout CD's and DVD-A titles but apparently stores in several markets in the US do carry this title.

    Jon, I don't recall if you have a Music 4 Less or Music For a Song near you, but I saw this at that music liquidator last visit. I do recall you have been to one or the other at times. Wal-Mart might be less expensive if you have one of those that carry it. I am in the heart of Wal-Mart country and have checked a bunch for the cutout titles without luck.

    Thanks Chris!

    We did have a 'Music For a Song' here in Connecticut at one of the outlet malls down by the shore, but it closed a year or so ago. They actually carried a decent selection of DVD-A's and SACDs, along with many gold MFSL & DCC cut-outs. As you know, they also had the "test market" DualDiscs in their stock for a while.

    But now they're gone gone gone. So, I'm left with WalMart.

    Music For A Song is still alive and well online. I got a sealed Nightfly DualDisc (CD/DVD-A) through them for $12 shipped, but now they're asking $60 as the title is becoming harder to find ... like everything else of course.

    As far as ROE, it's especially cheap through Amazon resellers. My closest Wal-Mart is a 30-40 min. drive and I already own a copy. Nice disc, nice package, but boy was I fooled to find out the title track was a live recording. It always sounded like a studio to me when I heard it (radio, Forrest Gump, etc.)
    Hey gang, my first acoustic demo is available for listening at SoundCloud - send me a PM and let me know what you think!

    Just got back from a local Walmart. Found a copy of Running On Empty DVDA in the bargain bin for $5. Thanks for the tip. Didn't have this title yet. Do now. Can't beat the price. If they had had a second copy, I'd have picked it up for Neil. I'll probably check a second Walmart during the weekend.
    Best regards,
    George

    My local walmart didn't have one. I checked both sections with the $5 discs. I did find a Steely Dan "Everything Must Go" CD+DVD pack (not the DVD-A) for $5 which I grabbed for a co-worker. However, there was only one of these there. I wonder if each store only got one copy of "ROE".

    Anyone see a store with more than one Running on Empty?? (More walmarts will be visited this weekend for Neil)

    Just returned from the second local Walmart. Found another copy of ROE. I also saw the Steely Dan EMG CD/DVDV. I believe each Walmart receives one copy. That's all I found at each store I visited.

    Neil, you're welcome to the second copy. PM me your mailing address and I'll send it over.

    An "8".

    For the most part, it sounds gorgeous. Particularly tracks like "The Road" are soooooo beautiful.
    The mixes for the studio and live performances fit each one brilliantly.

    I just wish it was in a snappy DVDA-sized jewel case, it's such a faff getting it out of the cardboard case!
    Plus I love those unique DVDA cases anyway. They make my favourite surround music format even more special somehow.

    That link is defunct now Jon but while looking for more info on (the late) Greg Ladanyi's 5.1 mixing work, I found another link to the same interview from 2001 with Greg Ladanyi about the process of remixing "Running On Empty" into 5.1 for DVD-A.

    http://www.mediaandmarketing.com/13W...eg_Ladanyi.htm

    an absolutely fascinating read

    so sad he was so tragically killed, he was most certainly a fan of 5.1 and doubtless would have produced more surround mixes if not for the terrible accident that cut short his life in 2009.

    In the interview Greg mentions that the master tape did not need to be baked, just re-lubed. What exactly is the process of re-lubing a tape. Is this to eliminate squeaky tape. Never heard of this process before and would like to learn more. I have some reel to reel tapes that might benefit from this procedure.

    It's probably the splicings all falling apart, so the tape snippets have to be restored with adhesive foil again. (Razor blade cuts)

    Thanks for all the links everybody. Some good reading there. Still not sure how to lube a tape though without baking. The whole baking process kind of scares me. What I would like to find is a really good lubricant to apply to my erase head since this is where the squealing comes from. It's also I suspect a tension issue as well because after bringing in an old reel to reel for repair at a Teac service center the squealing stopped.

    you're welcome

    agreed, it does sound like the tensions causing the squealing (or at least a contributing factor)

    Just voted on this after my third time through it, but didnt need more than one, really. This got a 9 from me. It is just simply good. Great classic album and a great 5.1 mix. It has been a favorite of mine for many years and am very happy to have this in hi rez surround.
