    Steve,

    Be careful.

    I believe that some of the titles you listed are DVD-Video, some are CD and some are DVD-Audio.....

    These are the ones I think are DVD-VIdeo and CD:
    Devo’s The Complete Truth About De-Evolution
    Simply Red’s Greatest Video Hits
    Randy Newman’s Good Old Boys

    Chicago X and XI (expanded and remastered)

    The Dead Kennedys Live

    Grateful Dead American BeautyAlready on DVD-A, Anthem of the Sun, Aoxomoxoa, Live/Dead, The Grateful Dead and Workingman’s DeadAlready on DVD-A

    Randy Newman Faust and Good Old Boys (single disc)

    VA All Together Now

    The titles explicitly listed as DVD-Audio, will be on DVD-Audio though [​IMG]

    John, do you mean to say that the rest of the Grateful Dead box will be released on DVD-A (in addition to "Workingman's" and "Beauty")?

    Interested in Chicago II, but I was not happy with the quality of last year's remastered redbook version Rhino put out. However, this was the first and only version of II that I have ever owned, so I have no basis of comparison with any other version to ascertain the source of the questionable quality I perceive. If the problem is in the original masters, how much better can the DVD-A version get?

    FWIW, I was very happy with the remastered Chicago I album also released last year (although I was never disappointed in the previous redbook version I own).

    John, where did you hear about the Dead albums? So far I can't find any store that has them listed (other than the two already released on DVD-A) nor is there info at the Dead's or Mickey Hart's sites.

    Rich, what Box are you referring to? I've got their box set of the first 10 albums that were released a year or so ago. Are they finally releasing those remasters individually?

    So, what's the deal with The Cars disc? Will it be a DVD-Audio release? Based on John's post, I want to be sure.

    Chicago II has always sounded compressed on an version i've heard of it! Lotta ways like Santana I. However i'm primed to buy this one as it's at the higher resolution and very interested in how the 5.1 mix is!

    Apparently Justin and I have some strange sympatico thing going on, because he got my meaning exactly where very few others did.

    It is my understanding that only those titles listed as DVD-Audio in Steve's list will be DVD-Audio. All others will be either DVD-Video or Compact Disc.

    IOW, no new Grateful Dead DVD-As that I'm aware of.

    Regards,

    Well I didn't see any list of Dead stuff in Steve's list or at that link. Is there any info on these remasters someplace?

    I'm assuming the remasters are from the box set I mentioned. It should be noted that the CDs of American Beauty and Workingman Dead are very different from the DVD-Audio discs. Mickey Hart completely remixed the albums from the original tapes. He brought out certain instruments in some of the tracks that they had buried in the original mix. The new CDs will likely be the original mix, not Mickey Hart's.

    Keith,

    That's because I went back to the master list, and brought it over, which is probably adding substantially to the confusion.

    My bad folks, my bad!

    Regards,
