Rhino has a Blu-ray featuring  Eagles on the calendar for issue on February 19.  The set is called Farewell Tour:  Live From Melbourne.


This was brought to my attention from longtime reader, Bill B, concerning an upcoming SACD of Amused To Death, a Roger Waters‘ solo work:

“A week ago, on Monday, 14 January, we brought you the news that Analogue Productions, who were responsible for the superb SACD of Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here, will be issuing a double LP and SACD of Roger Waters’ 1992 epic Amused to Death, first released on vinyl in 1992 in a very limited double LP edition.

Analogue Productions have sent out a mailer about it, but have also been in touch with us. They told us that “it will be done in the highest quality possible with a team of Doug Sax and James Guthrie and using the original analog master tapes with vinyl pressed at Quality Record Pressings”. One of the things uppermost in most minds is when we might see the releases. “We do not have an exact release date. At this point, six to 12 months from now is a good guess, though we’re hoping it will be closer to six months”. For the time being, they have gone for a provisional release date of 15 October, 2013.

The mailer notes that the double LP will be on 200-gram vinyl, and that the SACD will be a stereo hybrid (so, will play on non-SACD capable standard CD players). The Q Sound virtual surround sound will be preserved in its 3D glory for these new editions of what we consider one of Roger’s best works. As soon as we have more information on this eagerly anticipated release we will let you know.”

Thanks, Bill!

One thought on “TAPSheet: Release News – 01/24/2013 (US Report)”
  1. OK, if they are going back into the studio to fuss with Amused to Death, why don’t they just take a little extra time and do a really nice surround mix. I’ll tell you that it would be greatly appreciated by some fans of the album (myself included).

    I’ve said before that ‘Amused’ is probably the best album ever made for a surround stage, even specifically designed and engineered in an early form of cd-surround, and this might generate some interest back into the high end audio – maybe even a blu-ray surround release to see if it might fly with Waters/Floyd (Jeff Beck) fans.

    Anyhow, that’s just my two cents – if someone could pass it on to Mr. Guthrie before he gets to work, that would be appreciated.
