Dark Side on DVD Audio?!!! Christmas comes on 3/3/03 in more ways than one for me, Pink Floyd on DVD Audio and that's our first baby's due date!
Hmmmm - wonder if they'll issue the original Quad mix of Dark Side on this DVD-A. That might convince me to dip my toe into the DVD-A waters. Apparently the band invested quite a bit of effort into this mix back in '73.
A spankin' new 5.1 mix done by no-name engineers would be of considerably less interest.
there is officially no satisfying anybody.
Thanks Steve M. Since I've already turned my wife into a Floyd fan, it's almost time to work on the next generation!
Steve, thanks for the news. I hope Dark Side of The Moon really does come to DVD-Audio. Let's keep our collective fingers crossed.
Something to really look forward to on DVD-A - One of the best selling albums in history, and one that could definitely benefit from a multi-channel hi-res release. Now all we now need are Warner's long overdue/promised releases from Madonna, Paul Simon, Prince, the Talking Heads, etc, and to eventually have Capital hopefully release some of The Beatles catalog on DVD-A, then the format may then begin to gain some serious public notoriety.
Take a listen to Neil Young's Harvest, although it only managed a paltry Quadruple platinum in sales.
The surround mix takes a little bit of getting used to, but the stereo mix (direct from the analog stereo master) is the bees knees
I drool as I type this!!
It's about time.
I think I can hear that bass-line in "Echoes'' already.
Super Geeked at both the Pompeii DVD and the DVD-A for Dark Side. The DVD had been rumored but it sure sounds a whole lot better as something official.
BTW, yeah that Harvest DVD-A is very sweet. I noticed that even the interviews have some surround work done which I thought really gave them the ambiance of standing right there with the camera. The whole layout/design of the Harvest DVD-A is what I want out of one. Plus the more tangible paper style mini-album type case. That DVD-A feels like the Harvest "experience".
Also, there was some Queen album on DVD-A and this thing by the Eagles that I heard was good. Maybe this DVD-A thing is going to take off.
I know it's been slim pickens on both sides, but this Floyd news couple with the 4-5 nice releases this month bode well. And for SACD the Stones thing is certainly a shot in the arm. Once reasonably priced dual players hit, I think both formats will be able to stick around...and I consider that a good thing.
Finally, after rumors that it would never come out because of the "master tapes" being lost, LIVE AT POMPEII IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I can throw that old VHS copy away
And, what's even better is that in the same month, a DVD-AUDIO version of Dark Side is coming out!!!!! Looks like I'll have to buy a new DVD player with SACD and DVD-A options! What's even better is that March is my birthday, so it looks like I'll rediscover PF again.
This has made my day 10x more better
Someone pointed out on Audio Asylum that if DSOTM still belongs to EMI, we will likely see both DVDA and SACD like did with Deep Purple recently.
Dark Side is one of my favorite albums.
