This is what he tweeted a short while ago. He also tweeted the release dates of Larks Tongues in Aspic and Thick as a Brick, plus this:
"More 5.1s on the way..."

What a huge letdown. I was already imagining how good the rest of their classic catalogue could sound...

Yes Nil, it is disappointing but in our surround\remaster\remix music world it is the reality.
I like you wish it were different.

 

It ain't ignorance causes so much trouble; it's folks knowing so much that ain't so

Sorry, but we don't know that they won't still be done, just that SW won't be doing them.

Certainty and conviction are a sure sign you don't know what you're talking about! The world is not black and white, rather shades of grey!

Calling John Kellogg. I am pretty happy with the 5,1 mix he did with BSS and the Lucky Man track so it would not be a lesser product if he and Sony I guess could be persuaded to take up the job.

I still have the albums I bought from them. Led Zeppelin I, Blind Faith, Idlewild South, John BarleyCorn Must Die, etc.
I think you got like 6 albums free for joining helluva deal.
Of course, that's why I stuck my tongue out.

Once upon a time, I worked at RCoA ... as a mastering technician on their high-speed tape duping systems. We got 1/2" masters from many of the labels, duplicated them onto working masters and fed them to the banks of high speed cassette decks. And 8-tracks!

Besides I will most likely get it through Amazon like i always do and get it cheaper (as the price almost always comes down) with no shipping (...although most likely at a later date...as they are almost always deleyed) but like I said with the ELP discs I am a patient man so in the end it will be worth it to me. It's friken' TAAB in 5.1, the one I have been dreaming of in 5.1 forever!

Is anybody thinking that a lossless version will be released in the future? The cynic in me does ...

I have 'mixed' feelings about this (pun intended). Although I think he did ELP really well, I am disappointed in the quality of Tarkus. However, if the quality of ELP would be maintained, I would love to see the rest of the ELP catalog completed.

If you mean the difference in sonics, I agree, but as it was a flat transfer from the original analog tapes, it was not SW's fault.

There's good news and possibly bad news in ELP land. There will be more surround albums coming out, but Steven Wilson will not be doing the mixes. Anyone familiar with Jakko's work?




http://www.innerviews.org/inner/wilson2.html




Q: What does it take beyond money to get you interested in a remix project?

I’ve got to love the album and people involved. It’s as simple as that. I get invited to do a lot of stuff, believe me. I did two Emerson, Lake and Palmer albums, but I’ve chosen not to do any more of their records because I can’t honestly say I love them. I didn’t feel as connected to them as the King Crimson or Jethro Tull albums. So, Jakko Jakszyk will be doing the next two for ELP and he’ll do a great job.

I have a DVD-A Jakko co-produced and mixed with Robert Fripp released on the DGM Inner Knot label. It's called "A Scarcity of Miracles" Jakszyk, Fripp and Collins...A King Crimson ProjeKct. Mel Collins, Tony Levin and Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree drummer) play on the album with Fripp and Jakko does all vocals and keys, also plays guitar and appears to have written the lyrics and developed the material from initial improvisations with Fripp and Collins (sax). Recorded in 2011, I find the 5.1 mix and SQ excellent IMO, sounds very much like a Steven Wilson mix but his name is not in the credits. Credit is given to Jakszyk and Fripp for mixing and production, Simon Heyworth did the mastering and Neil Wilkes authored the DVD. Both 96/24 5.1 and 2.0 mixes in MLP lossless are on the DVD-A. Music is kind of jazzy prog with both songs and instrumental passages. It has really grown on me with repeated listening. This is all I've heard of Jakko's work, but based on the surround mix on this album, I think the next ELP albums should be in good hands.

Thanks. I might hold off on the new ELP's till I hear the reviews. There's nothing more annoying to me than a lousy surround mix, so I'll let other people be guinea pigs. biggrin.gif


Thanks for the tip on the JFC album. It looks interesting. It got a bunch of bad reviews on Amazon, but a lot people were complaining it wasn't King Crimson so they panned it. rolleyes.gif I didn't realize Jakko was in Level 42. It's quite a change going from Britpop to Fripp!

Same original tapes but different producer and engineer = different results.
