Mike's been talking about it for quite some time, but it's finally available to order, and it will be released on January 20th, 2017!

Here's the description from the website listed above:

I have every expectation that it will be DVD-V. :rolleyes:

You're probably correct. It would be nice if down the road Oldfield saw fit to release ALL his 5.1 remixes to BD~A. Lossy just doesn't cut the mustard, IMO. With the newer UHD Blu ray format, I'm sure they'd ALL fit on one disc.

BTW, Gene, I spun the DVD~A of Tubular Bells the other day and it really sounded INCREDIBLE. Also has some videos on it (in 480p). Did you get your copy yet?
 
While awaiting my copy of this I noticed that the back cover, as seen on the pictures from Amazon UK, includes the DVD Audio logo. Mistake I wonder? We'll soon find out when copies start arriving.

Would be peculiar to make a mistake like that, I hope it's truly a DVD-Audio as I haven't ordered this one yet but certainly will if it turns out to be lossless surround.

Several sites are listing this as a CD+DVD-Audio, so that's pretty encouraging.

For CDN$19, I think I'll go ahead and pre-order this right now. If it's not DVD-Audio then Amazon will allow a return for an incorrect listing.

:banana:

DVD-Audio's seem to be more often mislabeled. Oldfield trend says it will be more like a DVD-Video type.

This is not to discount the possibility of a marketing error (ie - artwork only) but I don't have a single MO release that is mislabelled DVD-Audio though, do you? He did move from paltry 448 Kbps DD 5.1 to 1.509 Mbps dts 24/96 with Crises/5MO so maybe he's bumping it up again? He has received quite a bit of feedback on this issue and seems to interact fairly regularly with his fanbase via social media.

I'm not holding my breath or anything, but it's worth a pre-order at this piddly price. :)

No, I don't think any Oldfields have been mislabeled. Good point...so maybe there is hope. (y)
