Another great interview with Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera. He seems to be the only member of the band that is really championing the 5.1 surround mix: https://www.soundandvision.com/content/roxy-music’s-self-titled-‘re-makere-model’-rock-convention-gets-rich-51-upgrade

Mettler: Does the surround version of the album give you something you always wanted to hear, or something you didn’t expect? What does it mean to you?
Manzanera: To me, the 5.1 is the star of the show. Because if you’re a Roxy fan and you’ve heard these tracks for years, you now hear them in a different way. There’s so much to gain, so it’s worth it just for that.
Mettler: I totally agree — especially when you get such an adventurous song like “Ladytron” in 5.1. That’s just manna from heaven.
Manzanera: And obviously, on the original album, it had to be cut really short at the end because of the restrictions of cutting vinyl in those days. To be able to have the whole version of it now is just a delight. When Steven and I were listening back to it, we were jumping up and down, saying, “If people who have heard the original hear this, they’re just going to be thrilled with the extra added Eno stuff at the end!”
Mettler: And I’m one of them, I can tell you that! Is there one particular song in the Roxy canon you would like Steven to mix in 5.1?
Manzanera: (slight pause) Ooh. Actually, I’d say “In Every Dream Home a Heartache” [from 1973’s For Your Pleasure]. I think that would be amazing to hear in surround.

Good grief £55 … and to think I panicked myself into getting it for an arm and a leg with a pre order last December. Oh well, win some lose some. Still a fantastic box set for a very long standing fan like me, circa 1972 ( or am I just making myself feel better :unsure:) First heard them here in the UK on John Peels brilliant radio show, just blown away with their originality and musicianship. Can we have all the others, up to Flesh and Blood, in surround please!!

:unsure: I still haven't got this, and I don't know what to do! I don't dislike Roxy Music, but I'm not a massive fan of theirs, and I do dislike paying for boxsets with superfluous stuff, and I dislike even more bands that hide their surround mixes within costly boxsets (n). I am though a big fan of Steven Wilson and his mixes (y). Part of me says I have to go for it at this lower price, part of me says don't as its still £55 for one surround mix that isn't even lossless (not really interested in the book, or the demos), and part of me says, hey what's £55, that's just the cost of a nice meal, and less than most concert tickets.

I repeat :unsure: !!

Haha, I'm in exactly the same situation, it is a dilemma!

I understand how you feel and respect your objections about buying these box sets to get one disc...as many of you know I purchased this set to see if Steven Wilson could change my mind about the content....I still didn't like the content..BUT the mix and general sonics are excellent for this vintage recording...and when you consider the current state of physical discs I don't think it's hype to say that this is probably the last chance to get this album in the best possible version..

Well I went for it and it has arrived today :D. At Amazon UK's price of £55, less a £20 credit for signing up to an Amazon credit card, makes only £35 :SG. Still expensive, but much less than my FA Cup final ticket cost, which also arrived in the post today!

According to my wife at home the Roxy Music arrived in the post in a massive cardboard box, prompting her question "what have you been buying now?", to which I replied "its just a cd my dear!" :ROFLMAO:

I guess you just gotta tell her the cd format has been changed....it's no longer compact....more like ecd...enlarged compact disc .:unsure::)

For this April's Record Store Day releases, we will FINALLY get to hear Steven Wilson's stereo remix of "Roxy Music" (on vinyl):
Shame Mofi or AP has not done a AAA 2 LP 45 of this,
