Tears For Fears-Songs From The Big Chair 5.1

Steven Wilson is doing a 5.1 of this '80's classic. It's hard to tell if the 5.1 is only on the deluxe box but Amazon UK has a great pre order price on this.


http://modern-vinyl.com/2014/09/23/s...eissued-again/

Tears for Fears’ biggest-selling album, Songs from the Big Chair, will be released in its most spectacular format on November 4, 2014, via Universal Music Enterprises. The album, which spawned classic songs like “Everybody Wants To Rule the World,” “Mother’s Talk,” “Shout” and “Head over Heels,” will be available in five formats, including a six-disc deluxe edition box set featuring previously unreleased material and in a first for a pop album, a 5.1 surround sound mix by Steven Wilson.

Do you know if the pre order is up yet for the BD stand alone at Amazon Homer? I'd like to get this ordered before I come to my senses and realize how much I've been blowing on 5.1 BDs lately...

Hmmm. Although this is tempting, I'm going for the SD box. Only $24 more for a six disc set at the pre-order price.

Awesome!

And though I am a multi-decade fan of Yes, the Moody Blues and several other prog rock bands, it's nice to see a NON-prog rock album released in surround form. I love well-done pop music and think it's another genre that can be enjoyable to listen to in multichannel form.

Some better info. The Deluxe box will contain a DVD-A, but not a BD. The DVD's will be region free. Bull Moose is taking pre-orders on the BD but as of now, Amazon isn't.

From superdeluxeedition.com:

http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/n....ng/#more-32065

Universal team up with SuperDeluxeEdition.com to create stunning 6-disc super deluxe editon box set.

Roland Orzabal: (speaking to Paul Sinclair in 2014)

“We had let go of any Tears For Fears ideology, because it all came out in The Hurting. We were getting older, we had a bit of money, so life wasn’t that bad [laughs]. I mean, I bought my first house at 21. There wasn’t the ‘difficult second album syndrome’. It was an easy second album syndrome. You know, instead of being so het up by ‘the message’ we started to relax.”

Universal Music will reissue Tears For Fears‘ second album Songs From The Big Chair in November as a six-disc super deluxe edition box set that, amongst all the bonus material, delivers every commercially issued b-side and remix of the era, previously unreleased radio sessions and early mixesand a high-resolution 5.1 surround sound mix courtesy or highly respected remixer and engineer Steven Wilson.

As with last year’s The Hurting reissue, Universal brought SuperDeluxeEdition editor Paul Sinclair on board to assist with the reissue project. He has not only had access to the archives to help with the track selection, but has also interviewed the key players from the era, including band members Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, producer Chris Hughes and A&R man Dave Bates. The result of this work is an extensive “In their own words” track-by-track guide to Songs From The Big Chair within the 32-page booklet. Additionally, Paul has written a guide to every bonus trackwithin the box set, so as well as knowing what has been included, fans will understand why each extra track has been included.

Disc one within the box set contains the remastered album and includes all the original Songs B-sides. In fact, the first 14 tracks deliberately replicate the original running order of the limited edition UK cassette version of Songs From The Big Chair that added six bonus songs to the eight-track album.

The second CD – Edited Songs From The Big Chair – largely contains various single versions/edits released around the world, including the U.S. Remix (actually a re-recording) of Mothers Talk (a song that was both the first and last single from the album), and I Believe (A Soulful Re-recording). Previously unissued on any audio format – but included on this disc – is the ‘Video Version’ of the American remix of Mothers Talk which contains a unique intro, as well as a promo-only ‘Radio Version’ of Head Over Heels that has never been commercially released. Charity single Everybody Wants To Run The World finally makes it onto a Tears For Fears deluxe edition (along with the semi-instrumental B-side ‘Running Version’ of the same song) and stunning album closer Listen is included with a clean intro so it can be enjoyed without the normal cross-fade. A Curt and Roland interview with short audio clips (originally included on the UK seven-inch double-pack ofEverybody Wants To Rule The World) completes disc two.

Remixed Songs From The Big Chair is an appropriate title for the third CD which is packed full of twelve-inch remixes. The UK extended versions ofThe Way You Are (a non-album single), Mothers Talk and Shout are all included (having all been omitted from the 2005 deluxe edition) along with the ‘Acappella’ Mix of Shout and the instrumental version of Everybody Wants To Rule The World – both previously unreleased on CD. The alternate US Remix of Mothers Talk which (apparently inadvertently) appeared on the 2005 deluxe in place of the standard US Remix is also repeated here.

A fourth and final CD contains 14 tracks that have never been commercially available. Unreleased Songs From The Big Chair treats listeners to 1984 BBC radio sessions, the three tracks included on the Canadian promo-only Live At Massey Hall twelve-inch, along with three further tracks fromMassey Hall (Shout, Mothers Talk and The Working Hour) newly mixed from the multi-track tapes. For the first time the band have authorised lifting the lid on some of their work-in-progress. To that end, early mixes of Mothers Talk, The Way You Are, Broken and Shout are included on disc four along with an unheard, rejected seven-inch edit of Everybody Wants To Rule The World.

A fifth disc is a DVD that contains a brand new 2014 5.1 surround sound mix of Songs From The Big Chair created by Steven Wilson and personally approved by Roland Orzabal. A new 2014 stereo mix is also included. Both mixes are flat transfers with no additional mastering EQ or compression applied. Paul Sinclair encouraged Universal to issue this as
a DVD-A (DVD Audio) to allow fans with the appropriate hardware (DVD-A compatible DVD player) to enjoy a lossless hi-res surround version of Songs From The Big Chair. The disc remains fully compatible with standard DVD players which will still be able to deliver the surround mix in Dolby 5.1 and DTS. A hi-res stereo mix can be enjoyed by all. This DVD is region free.

A standalone Pure Audio blu-ray audio is also being released that includes the 5.1 and stereo mixes in hi-res as well as the original album mix.

Some great info and an interview with SW concerning the work he did on the remix. It also straightens out the misinformation (or is it?) on the legendary reversed channels on some reissues.

SDE Editor Paul Sinclair worked on the forthcoming reissue of Tears For Fears’ Songs From The Big Chair. In this feature he exclusively lifts the lid of some of the behind-the-scenes work that went into remastering the album and talks to Steven Wilson about the remixing process…

BTW, Amazon is finally taking pre-orders on the HFPA.

Here's hoping that SW will start working on some more pop masterpieces that are in dire need of a surround sound release.
