While we wait for release news, I thought I'd mention this. I recently bought Curepedia, an encyclopaedia by Simon Price of everything related to The Cure. When I opened it at random I found this under D:
Dutton, Michael
Michael Dutton is a sound engineer who began his career at Morgan Studios in the late 1970s. Three Imaginary Boys by The Cure was only his fourth job, having cut his teeth providing 'tapes and tea' for The Enid on Aerie Faerie Nonsense in 1977. He also engineered 'Boys Don't Cry', Seventeen Seconds and Faith, as well as Associates' The Affectionate Punch and The Passions' Michael & Miranda - basically, anything that came through Morgan on Fiction Records and involved Chris Parry or Mike Hedges. Not long after his final sessions with The Cure, Dutton switched his attention to an entirely different genre and became an acclaimed sound engineer in the world of classical music, working with the likes of Michael Nyman and the Balanescu Quartet and overseeing new recordings of the works of Elgar, Delius, Vaughan Williams, Prokofiev and Stravinsky. He also reissues vintage classical and jazz recordings on his labels Dutton Epoch, Vocalion and Dutton.
(Perhaps he can renew his association with Robert Smith and convince him to release some surround. And I'm sure there are some reading this who are thinking the same about The Enid!)
Very excited about what DV has in store for us next. The fact that they have previously gotten some Capitol and other Universal controlled titles is really good reason for optimism. And there are other un-reissued Sony titles which are rather hot musically and perfectly fit into what DV is about so far as styles and genres.

Seems like two years since some rock like Ted Nugent came out, but I have the attention span of a goldfish, so I don't really know how long it's been. Seems like forever.

My top favorites from DV have been:

Return to Forever - Musicmagic
Weather Report - Tail Spinnin'
Earth Wind & Fire - That's The Way of the World
Mott The Hoople - The Hoople
Guess Who - Best of The Guess Who Vol. 2
Art Garfunkel - Breakaway
O'Jays - Ship Ahoy

with special mention of (teenage faves):

Rick Derringer - All American Boy
Ted Nugent - Free-For-All

So I can think of a few titles that complement these above titles so nicely, and fit into what DV often releases. But I've already posted my top few wish list titles. So now it's stand by with credit card in hand, and stay positive.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to stumble over to the DV site now and start getting my order together, or my shopping basket loaded with a couple things I still need. Then when the new stuff appears I can just drop it or them into the cart and mash that buy button.
