Warner Brothers has announced (without a date) that it is planning to release Madonna's "Music" and a untitled "greatest hits" collection (though I believe it is likely to be "The Immaculate Collection," it could very well be a new package conceived strictly for the DVD-A format) on the DVD-A format later this year. I knew this was inevitable, but really would've preferred "Ray of Light" instead. Also, it is rumored that her 1983 debut album is being remastered for DVD-A for its 20th anniversary next year - redbook CD remasters of her first three studio albums have already been released. Warner is also planning on releasing Paul Simon's "Graceland" and a few dozen other major albums later in the year from R.E.M and The Talking Heads. All I can say is that it is about time. Now, if Warner can only get some of Prince's early works out on the format, then we might really start to see things take off, as software has been sorely lacking on this hi-rez format.
