Same here on both counts.Same here.
Oh, well. Order now placed with the good ol' Shed.
It's Burning Shed delivering unearthly good customer service.I ordered this box on Monday from Burning Shed and it arrived here in Atlanta this morning! What type of postal sorcery is this?!
Anyway, it looks fab. However, I have to wait until tomorrow to sample the new 5.1 content.
RT, tweeked your quote a bit.So, to sum up, if you want the 5.1 surround mixes of "Beat" and "Three of a Perfect Pair" in their highest resolution, the box set is the ONLY way to go!
As a final parting shot, I was asked if I would consider making a surround sound remix of "Absent Lovers". 'Definitely not', I replied, remembering the months that Robert and I spent mixing the original. But then I recalled that we had muted the audience tracks during the mixes. What they offered in ambience, we had lost in clarity. Perhaps I could just sneak them into the rear speakers. Less 'surround sound', more 'big stereo'. Surprisingly transformative.
ah you "Beat" me to it..This is a cool new video with David Singleton walking us through the massive headaches he endured trying to put this 80s box set together.
I think we will all have a greater appreciation for what the box contains and how good everything looks and sounds after watching this video.
Pretty sure that the live in Japan videos are in widescreen on the Blu-Ray and 4:3 on the DVD (but I would have to dig the discs out again to know for sure.)The live in Japan videos aren't in widescreen they're in 4:3[on the box it says widescreen format.......must be a misprint].
