  1. Matt, I wanted to report a few stragglers. Some of the titles you’ve been mentioning already were going to go into an Overflow Notes column, but you beat me to it.
    This first one is one I’m really over the moon about. A Hoffman Forum reader who was involved in the project revealed that Real Gone Music is releasing a 2-CD set of Tower Of Power called Hipper Than Hip-Live on the Air amp; in the Studio 1974-Yesterday, Today amp; Tomorrow. It is due out November 25th. The great thing about this release is that readers were told that this actually comes from reels in the studio rather than from over the air broadcast tapes. On top of it, this is from the days when Tower Of Power just really socked it to everybody.
    Secondly, the final Dave’s Pick of 2013 for The Grateful Dead was announced at the Hoffman Forum, IMWAN and through GD e-mail. Volume 8 will be from the Fox Theatre-Atlanta, Georgia 11/30/80.
    I also have a request to readers. If anybody picks up any of the blu-ray audio discs from Europe for the Rolling Stones-Exile On Main St and for Derek amp; The Dominos-Layla, etc., could you chime in and let people know what you think of them?

    1. Hi Steve, looking forward to getting the Layla blu-ray next week. I’ll let you know what I think. So far I have about 4 sets of Layla, including an SACD and the boxed set with any number of pointless jams…
      But the original record is my favourite album ever, so will keep getting new versions.

  2. All this talk of hi-def releases makes me very happy. In particular, I am waiting for a Steven Wilson Yes – Tales! IMHO, their best record.
    This reminds me of a major injustice foisted on the hi-def/surround sound buying public, which I hope will get rectified at some stage.
    I have always been a huge fan of the first 4 Moody Blues records (days to children’s) and when Decca announced them in SACD a few years ago, so I bought them immediately, and was blown away by the surround sound, except for the Lost Chord record, which, although my copy states “5.1 Surround Sound mix manipulated from the original Quadraphonic Masters by Paschal Byrne and Mark Powell at The Audio Archiving Company, London”, there was no such surround mix! Despite numerous complaints, Decca have never done anything but remove that narrative from later records. Hopefully they will look at it at some stage :-(

    1. My SACD of “In Search of the Lost Chord” doesn’t state 5.1 anywhere, only stereo. There is no mention of SACD either. Most surround music is only 5.0 anyway since the subwoofer is rarely utilized. Regardless, all of the Moody Blues SACD’s were only quadrophonic.

  3. A list of stuff coming out this week.
