Halloween '78 is headed to DVD-A (to be released on DTS). From Joe Travers' (vaultmeister) webpage: Next up, as you may have heard, is the release of Halloween '78 on a DTS DVD-Audio disc... He goes on to say that they are shooting to have it out before this Halloween, but that's not going to happen. Joe Chiccarelli is creating the new surround mix. Over on USENET, a caller to the Pumpkin line found out that we might see a couple of DVDs first: Me: We love FZ:OZ. Him: Great! Me: What can you tell me about the next release, the DVD-A. Him: Well, the next release is going to be Baby Snakes on DVD. Me: (long pause). Really. Him: Yes, that's according to the boss, you know, Gail. Baby Snakes WILL be released before the end of the year, and then the Roxy DVD will come out early next year, then probably an audio title. Me: OK, that's great.. um, what would the audio release be? Him: I'm not at liberty to say at this point, I'm sorry. Me: OK, that's fine. So, what can you tell me about the DVD Audio release, the 1978 Halloween thing? Him: I don't know what you're talking about. There's been no announcement about that. Me: (not wanting to incriminate sources inside the organization), Well, I read this interview with Joe Chicarelli, about him mixing it for surround. Him: All I can say is there is no official information about that at this time. Me: So, you'll neither confirm nor deny. Him: I don't even know what a DVD is. (laughs). I'm trying to be optimistic that delays won't push these back over and over for the next 8 years. I'm emailing Joe Travers right now to beg for uncompressed PCM stereo tracks to be included on all releases.
