Take a look!
Here's a bit from the piece......
While I am all for Beatles on hi-rez, it seems a stretch to assume that Beatles are the band in question here. There is no direct quote from Elliott referenced, for instance.
Perhaps we should wait for official word from the label or one of the band members.
The Toshiba-EMI 'Abbey Road' disc in Japan was the first official Beatles CD.
Well the name of the above article is........ Elliot Scheiner, Re-Mixing for 5.1 and... Klaatu?
Well the Klaatu does it for me. Anyone who was a big Beatles fan back in the seventies remembers the speculation about a band named Klaatu being the re-united Beatles.
Beatles on DVD-A, sounds good to me. This is the group most people are waiting for, and will be a guaranteed big big seller. I am thinking it would make sense to do on a Hybrid DVD-A since the Beatles have not had any recent remasters.
Forget the Stones, forget Floyd, the Beatles are where it is at when it comes to selling a new format. I see Sony trying to get millions together, to throw the Beatles way possibly to no avail.
I guess Ringo or McCartney don't like DSD
If it were the Beatles, my guess that it would be Sgt. Pepper. I would not however assume it was. I believe Sony owns the rights to half the catalog and the cash strapped Michael Jackson the other half. I would think to release anything some type of permission might be required. Rumor has it that is what is holding up Warner putting out some DVD-As as they can't get the required permission to do 5.1. I also understand (could be wrong) that Silverline has 5.1 only for some type of similar reason. If it was a definite for either hi-rez format, I would expect a press release within a reasonable period of time (e.g. 2 mos.), otherwise I would lean towards this being nothing more than fiction. Sony has already announced Dylan's catalog for as far off as the 3rd qtr. EMI announced Pet Sounds months in advance. Perhaps it is one of the albums on Al Kooper's list: http://www.alkooper.com/hot100.html which also includes many other possibilities. Whatever it is, hopefully it will be a worthwhile hi-rez effort.
