    Just saw on the Yes site that Fragile is coming to DVD-A in October.

    "A DVD-A version of Fragile is scheduled to be released by Rhino on October
    15. It will also include "America", a Yes "Timeline" of the band's history through
    Fragile, and an on-screen photo gallery from the collection of Roger and
    Martyn Dean."

    Can't wait!!

    It'll be neat to see "mountains come out of the sky and stand there" while listening to Anderson sing the same.

    Hopefully they won't make a mess of this classic! I.O.W. no vocals coming from the surrounds, I'm used to seeing the vocalist/s in front of me.[​IMG]

    I agree with Frank on the proper use of surrounds.

    I am excited about this one.

    Actually, Frank, I wouldn't mind having vocals from the surrounds during We Have Heaven. There are 5 or so vocal parts on that track. They could do some interesting things with it.

    Looking forward to seeing them tonight. I've never seen Wakeman w/yes, so I'm excited. The only drag is that it's at an outdoor venue and it's been very hot and humid in St. Louis. It will be worth it to see the classic line-up.[​IMG]

    Grrr. I just purchased the remastered redbook version a couple of months back. OTOH, I haven't purchased a DVD-A player yet.

    Are Tacet's DVD-A surround mixes considered "gimmicky?" They are quite experimental and varied, often treating all the speakers the same.

    I'd be very dissapointed if this surround mix wasn't extremely aggressive. The instrumental arrangement of Yes really allows for a serious spread of audio around the room.

    I have "Nitty Gritty Surround" and "Patrice Rushen Piano, Bass & Drums" and both of these disc are incredible examples of what DVD-A is all about. The surround tracks are awesome. I can't understand people that knock multi channel music but then look for the best imaging out of 2 speakers. Why not use all 4,5, or 6 speakers ( or whatever your system consists of)? The argument that at a live show you don't have speakers behind you is valid - if your in the audience. But what if you were to be lucky enough to sit on stage, in the middle of the band, with amps behind and to the sides and the monitors in front.

    Man I can think of countless shows that I would have paid big bucks to be sitting right there on stage, in the middle of the band. I think AIX comes very close to reproducing that experience. I'd like to see some bigger acts get with Dr. Waldrep and make some beautiful music together.

    I've spoken to Mark Waldrep a few times on the phone and said the same thing. My most recent idea was to get the band Chicago in for a session and Mark thought it was a cool idea too. Ah, but it's a lot easier said than done.
    Nitty Gritty surround is the subject of an upcoming review I'll have up on the HTF homepage in the coming weeks.
