Fantastic news! Can't wait to add to the BBD 5.1 collection. I have really enjoyed all of the sets so far and this one just may be the best yet.

I am looking forward to receiving Drastic Plastic. Thanks for mixing it in 5.1. I can’t wait to hear it. Welcome to QQ. Any chance you can tell us which project you finished and tell us about the new one you are beginning?

I wish I was in a position to say what I have been working on, and what is in the pipeline - but I cannot divulge just yet - all I can say is there are some incredible re-issues coming soon! SWTx

You sir, are a legend in my home! I've enjoyed the Be Bop releases, but Drastic Plastic is the one. My favorite Be Bop album - finally! Any advantage to buying from you direct, rather than Amazon it?

I know you can't answer, but I'll mention it anyway - if I sell my soul, perhaps Red Noise will get this treatment too? Wow, Sound on Sound is a GREAT album. And of course, there's actually one other Be Bop album - Live in the Air Age. Probably asking too much - but believe me, you can take my money if they ever become a reality.

Finally - thanks to everyone at Cherry for these releases, they're enough to make a grown man cry. I never thought Id' see anything like this. I'm so glad to have been wrong!

you know you are more than welcome here...
As it is, I know it's a bit selfish but I'd like to think that I was one little grain of sand that made Maestro Nelson start his reissues with a SURROUND Mix...please say Hi to him and Emi...
Cheers!

I know Stephen can’t comment on his recent projects and I understand and respect that. But my guess would be that one of them is UK’s first album.
