I'm not focused on either one - I've accepted that we're going to get what Michael Dutton wants to give us, and it will be a mix of things I've always wanted and things I have no interest in. Frankly, getting anything at all from the original master tapes is a gift. Running a record label is a passion project these days, not a road to riches, and that means releases will follow the passions of whoever is doing the reissues.
The key fact to me is that more is coming.
While I’m not a fan of a lot of this stuff, I simply see it more as archival preservation at this point.
This may be the last chance to get so many of these old quad mixes properly transferred to a hi-res format (or any format, really) before they are lost forever. Almost certainly our last opportunity to acquire them in a physical format.
I’ve wondered if Mr Dutton doesn’t feel somewhat the same. That even if he’s not making much money on some of this stuff, that SOMEBODY needs to be doing this.
