Also, those four new albums eventually turned out to be these:

Thanks for the clarification. I was so depressed when Warner DID pull the plug on those pre~announced titles but now that they were JUST rumors makes the pain .... go away ..... somewhat!Obviously this is a tantalising list, but just for the record, it turned out this list wasn't actually an official pre-release list from Warners. I can't be bothered to dig up the post, so I'm paraphrasing from memory here, but from what I remember a German QQ member reported that this list was one that a German WMG marketing rep gave to a German hifi/music journalist before the official launch of the format in Europe, basically as a list of the stuff they hoped to do in the future, hence the handful of mistakes and unnamed 'upcoming albums' etc. So while lots of these titles did come to fruition in the fullness of time (at least during the DVD-A) era, just because something appeared on this list doesn't mean it was worked on, or even started - and I say this as someone who would love nothing more than to have DVD-A's of The Doobie Bros. Minute by Minute, Jean-Luc Ponty's Cosmic Messenger and Christopher Cross's self titled debut album (which was mixed to 16/44.1 PCM and could desperately use a hi-rez upgrade) in my hot little hands.
Depending on how it was mic'd and recorded; the live Waiting For Columbus is a top 10 wish for me. No ambient rears need apply please!
If you play it with four speakers (which I do for all stereo content), it's such a three dimensional sounding mix you can tell yourself that it is a surround mix.Depending on how it was mic'd and recorded; the live Waiting For Columbus is a top 10 wish for me. No ambient rears need apply please!
on a related tangent, the remastered CD of Lowell George's "Thanks, I'll Eat It Here" pans out nicely thru the Involve mode of the Surround Master.
