Jeff seeings how the 4 cd WILL BE LIMITED and WILL BE ONLY available via the Official site and that of Rhino,is there any chance,a POSSIBILITY of the extras/outtakes on the disc being in 5.1 Digital Audio?It was a bit of a let down for me not seeing any REAL LAW outtakes on the Perception Set.It would be real great for those of us TRUE FANS (who will be picking this up) to have the outtakes available in 5.1.I am know audiophile like yourself and others here.But,rather then a 2 channel mix,would be nice.I can then put this LAW disc in w/ my other Perception discs (that i have in my dvd player).
I was reading an interview w/ John and he talked about some of the "studio chatter",that i assume is in the release.He was mentioning we'll be hearing the decision about adding rain effects to ROTS.And also hearing certain songs done in different tempos.So,i'm holding out hope that the early takes of LAW and ROTS that were apparently recorded w/ Paul will make the cut.These are afterall standouts from this album (well,the longer songs).And of course,if you guys could put on what you have in the way of Paris Blues and maybe a few of the early demos from Robby's 4trk recordings.I have read there are a few Lover Her Madly early demos that were recorded at RK's place back in the day (besides just HH).
I am really looking forward to the Deluxe Limited Set Jeff as many are.Please keep us informed on the pre-order availability.
We did not mix these in 5.1 - sorry! I think the 5.1 ship has sailed, as far as consumer acceptance/desire goes. Sadly. I, for one, love 5.1 - as you do, too. BUT - that makes 2 copies sold! (Well, only one, really - I get mine free)
Seriously, though, the demand out there for 5.1 is about nonexistent, so we cannot justify the cost of mixing, not to mention a separate DVD disc that would be required to hold the 5.1 mixes (and would also increase the cost of the package by 10-20 dollars) for EVERY SINGLE purchaser. Just doesn't add up - for us, or for the fans.
We don't have Paris Blues right now (but hope to locate it) - sorry!
Robby does not have any of the 4 track sessions - nor does anyone else in our camp.
