Those are some of his best ones. I hope those are for the U.S. ? He hasn' been on Island in the past has he? As I recall he was on Uni. Damn, now I have to think about them for months and months on end, till _____?
I think the EJ titles are American favourties, and not necessarily the faves in the UK. Over here, I think the equivalent response might have been to: Elton John, Caribou, Don't Shoot Me ..., Blue Moves, Too Low for Zero. However, a nice selection for EJ fans. I'll certainly be picking up Captain Fantastic, possibly the Elton John album, and then waiting and hoping for Too Low, and my personal favourite, Rock of the Westies.
Ok this is great to see these titles!!! I'm excited even though I don't have SACD. If UNIVERSAL follows their lead then afterward we should see them released on DVD- AUDIO which is what i'd be looking forward to.
My definite choices are ELTON JOHN, MADMAN, TUMBLEWEED then CAPTAIN FANTASTIC!
Brian, I hate to contradict, but this was the period of some of his most flamboyant performances. I agree that things went a bit pear-shaped after that (Victim of Love, anyone?) but he made a fine comeback with Too Low For Zero.
Wonder if we'll see--and if so after how long--DVD-As of some/all of these.
I don't think so, Danny. Of course the reason for this Toby album as opposed to any of his others getting the hi rez treatment is because he's gotten hotter/bigger in the last two years or so due to the controversy and Shock'n Ya'll is his latest release, but it is discographically ironic: Toby started as a PolyGram artist (on Mercury), left that label the year after it was acquired by Universal to record for Dreamworks, which was last year acquired by Universal.
So the French own the label that released "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)."
I think this is the first Dreamworks title UMG is releasing to hi rez . . . ? I wonder if the rowdy crowd will get panned to the surrounds in "I Love This Bar."
