    A re-mixed 5.1 version of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway is due out in September to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the original release. I'm pretty excited about this. Not sure if it's SACD or DVD-A but I think it's SACD.

    The band's current engineer/producer, who worked on this (and the 'Trick of the Tail' surround disc, and the 5.1 mixes for the video anthology), has said to expect DVD-A in North America (Genesis is on WEA here).

    Here are some quotes from the engineer that I accumulated a few months ago:

    Great news, though at first I thought that 'early Genesis' meant something from the Jonathan King era.

    I am definitely showing my age.

    I hope they are remxing the stereo tracks for better sound & not because they want to "fix" or "modernise" it. I wish they had remixed the stereo track of Yes' Fragile dvd-audio because soundwise it sounded barely better than the CD version. And compared to the remixed surround track it was no comparison: the 96/24 stereo track sounded dull, lacked bass and overall sounded like a record that had been played too many times with a worn stylus.

    I am NOT saying I want a remix to include artificially boosted highs/bass, just that it be mixed/mastered with the quality of today's home playback equipment in mind.

    I wonder what they could do with Seconds Out. I'd love to have a 5.1 remix of that. I'm still waiting to see if the old film Genesis: I Know What I Like will ever see the light of day on DVD. Right now it's just a pipe dream.
