From the recent announcement about Steven Wilson's 60GB sound library Ghostwriter, comes these clues:

1. The Ghostwriter credits:

Wilson has become known for his 5.1 surround sound mixes, starting with his own projects, but more recently for remixing the catalogues of King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Roxy Music, XTC, and Yes, among others. His surround sound mixes have been Grammy nominated on four occasions, and he has twice won “Album of the Year” at the Surround Music Awards.

2. "This guy is remixing our debut LP in 5.1 surround sound, so I was listening to The Bob and I was laughing. It's pure prog. The whole of that first album sounds so weird. It's such a mish-mash of stuff. Roxy just wouldn't get signed today."

3. Circle back to the QQ guessing game and I think we know now what we didn't then:

I think that deserves a dancing banana, even if it's just a definitely maybe!

This is only about the first album being prepped. While I would love to have most of the albums, I suspect SW is only interested in the early more experimental material and maybe just this one.

I'd be damn thrilled to get any of the first 5 Roxy Music albums in surround!
An immersive Mother Of Pearl... Mmmmmm!

Avalon is already superb!

If I could have only one, it would be their debut.

You may have missed the part about the record label merger slowing things down. This is not even official as yet. Stay tuned.

Is this dead or alive?
It's never been alive in the since that it was never officially announced for release.
We only found out about it by connecting the clues together.

I don't think that it will ever be 100% dead simply because Universal (who now own Virgin/EMI) could always release it as an HFPA (or even a CD/DVD-A or CD/DVD-V release) but I would not expect it anytime soon at all.
