I have Dark Side & Wish on Blu-ray with 5.1 & Quad.
I think everybody has Dark Side and WYWH on Blu-ray :)

The point was that Pink Floyd could release a box set of only surround mixes, including previously released stuff, and get people to pony up just to get produced, but officially unreleased albums in surround. Meddle, Obscured by Clouds, Animals, and likely the Wall have been produced but not released due to the continued bickering between Waters and Gilmour.

Mine would have to be the Ian Hunter Rant Quadrilogy Which encompasses Rant (2001), Shrunken Heads (2007), Man Overboard (2009) and When I'm President (2012) . All co-produced by Andy York, John Mellencamp's lead guitar player along with Ian Hunter


The Rant tracks to be standouts would be "Ripoff", "Morons", and "Dead Man Walking (Eastender's)".

"Shrunken Heads" the title track would be outstanding as would be Hunter's arguably best track ever, "When the World was Round" along with the rocker titled "I Am What I Hated When I Was Young" (He's 81 now)

"Man Overboard" is a keeper as is "Flowers" and "Arms and Legs". all from Man Overboard.

From "When I'm President" and the band also now known as Ian Hunter and The Rant Band is the Brilliant "Ta Shunka Witco (Crazy Horse), "Fatally Flawed", and the insta-classic titled "Life".

I have added one video from each of these CD's because he is not too well known. He was previously the Lead singer in Mott The Hoople for 5 years. He has been with the Rant Band for 18 years now, the musicians have formerly played with and continue to Play with Paul McCartney and Wings, John Cale, Joe Jackson, Mott The Hoople, John Mellencamp, Carole King, Patti Smith, Garland Jeffreys, Gary U.S. Bonds, Joe Cocker, Elton John, and Chuck Berry, etc.

Ian has just 2 songs available in 24 bit--No Albums in HD. One is the title track from the All American Alien Boy CD is on the Jaco Pastoreus movie soundtrack and the other is from the DVD single of "When The World Was Round". Yeah he released a DVD Single!

I'm probably the only person in the world who is NOT a Springsteen fan. Maybe it's because I grew up in NJ and went to college close to Asbury Park in the very late 70s and Bruce was the s#*t there. Everyone went to the Stone Pony because Bruce might show up. Ugh. I could deal with a few of his pop songs, like Dancing in the Dark, (mainly because his fans didn't like that song - felt he was a disco sell out with it. Lol,) but most of his stuff made me tune out. There was a move to make Born to Run the NJ state song. I said, "go for it." NJ deserves it. (Rant over, sorry.)
You and me both. Never liked anything by the Boss.

For one shining moment there was the Mott The Hoople singer, Ian Hunter - the David Bowie lead guitarist - Mick Ronson - and Bruce Springsteen's E Street band minus Bruce and Miami Steve Van Zant in the Power Station making the wonderfully titled "Your Never Alone With A Schizophrenic". The anthemic "Cleveland Rocks appears here

We should have a poll so it's easier to see the full list of these excellent suggestions.

For me I would like a Steven Wilson full surround remix / remaster / cleanup of:
  • Electric Light Orchestra (ALL)
  • David Sylvian (and Japan) (ALL)
  • Talk Talk (ALL - incl Mark Hollis)
  • Peter Gabriel (ALL)
  • Cocteau Twins (ALL)
  • Clannad (ALL)
  • Alphaville (Forever Young and Aternoons in Utopia)
  • A-Ha (Minor Earth / Major Sky)
  • The Church (Gold Afternoon Fix)
  • Nik Kershaw (ALL)
  • Toto (ALL)
  • Rush (the remaining ones)
  • Styx (ALL) --> The Mission 5.1 is excellent
There's tons of others, especially progressive rock. Don't even get me started.

Given that Peter Gabriel himself has expressed enjoyment for surround audio, I'm surprised he has only one proper studio album released in 5.1. The "Play" music videos do have some nice 5.1 mixes as well, but that's it. There's a 5.1 mix of So that was made for the 30th anniversary, but it was ostensibly not included in the box set because "Play" had recently been released. He has multiple live shows in 5.1, but I prefer the studio stuff and hope something can happen with it.

Don't forget "UP" 5.1 SACD

First I've heard of this. Source?
Although he doesn't specifically say all of So was mixed for 5.1, here is an "open letter" from Peter Gabriel explaining why the So tracks that were mixed in 5.1 for "Play" were not included in the So boxed set: Peter Gabriel responds to ‘open letter’ about the “So” Deluxe Box Set | superdeluxeedition
There was also a forum post I'm trying to track down with a short comment from an engineer that heard the whole thing. Given that Play is only missing 3 tracks from So, it's very plausible the whole of So was mixed in 5.1. I can also somewhat understand PG's decision at the time, as 2 of missing tracks are IMHO the weakest tracks (That Voice Again, Excellent Birds). I think We Do What We're told could have been a great surround mix.

Wait what? I thought Play was a live album?
We Do What We're Told and Excellent Birds are probably my favorite tracks on So. Not a favorite album at all though. Surround mixes might alter that opinion though!
I thought Passion was kind of a return to form but then he went back to MTV music again after that. I lost track afterwards.
