Al Kooper coming to SACD - www.alkooper.com. "UPDATE: DECEMBER 18TH, 2002 I want to thank all of you who sent in venue suggestions over the last six weeks. They were duly noted and through a connection with old pal Chuck Prophet, I finally have hooked up with human booking agents. So now it’s just a matter of time before we get to your town! Already in the works - a belated return to Japan in June for three shows in Tokyo and one in Osaka. Haven’t been since 1978 and can't wait to go CD shopping there as well! I’ve upgraded my home studio to 5.1 surround-sound mixing capability and am currently mixing SUPER SESSION and CHILD IS FATHER TO THE MAN in surround-sound for release on SONY SACD. No release date has been set and that gives me the time to do as good a job as I possibly can. The engineering on the master tapes is wonderful. Hats off to Fred Catero, Bob Berault & Roy Hallee for amazing 1967-1968 use of technology."
