But lest we forget, Duncan .... A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet [the bard himself, Billy Shakespeare]

And Ammonia Avenue is only a prelude to Alan's next much anticipated remix I ROBOT!

Ordered mine from ImportCDs also. Can't tell if it shipped or not. Their web page does leave something to be desired as far as info goes.
Going into my account: I see no tracking info so I guess it hasn't shipped yet. I wonder what the criteria is for who gets what in what order? I ordered in late Dec. 2019...

Are some of you getting the deluxe set (BD, CD, LP) and is it worth it? ImportCD is out of stock on the 5.1 BD and looks like Amazon is handling only the box set. So wondering if the box set is worth the money or just wait for more BD's to come in.

The boxset on Amazon ships from and is sold by importcds, doesn't say how many are available but does say in stock.
I am still waiting for the standalone Blu-ray from Cherry Red.

I mentioned this on "Life in Surround" on Facebook which is BTW my favorite YouTube Channel!
I played Ammonia Avenue twice yesterday evening. I've always liked this recording, but now just love it. That happens a lot of with me with various albums. It's between OK and very good but the surround experience gives a new appreciation to the artistry and craft of the recording while isolating nuances. Alan Parsons obviously is an excellent mixer. Not many if any (Steven Wilson is another) that can both engineer AND create great music.
