I'm retired from GM. Studied Accounting after GM, passed the CPA exam (probably Chartered Accountant to you), got an MS in Taxation. GM brought in a Holden rear wheel drive a couple years ago and called it Pontiac GTO. It failed utterly for zero styling. Now they will bring in another one and call it Pontiac G-8. A zero name if there ever was one. Apparently a big seller though there in Australia. The one with that big round tail-light under an outer plastic cover with a funny dip in the back-up light under that round tail light. How do you like that vehicle? Back on-topic- The Beatles Love album is sold as a CD OR you get the CD and the DVD-A together for ~$18 US here. Sir George Martin and/or his son did a great job of mastering it. Regarding AIX, to me it is just unbelievable that big artists don't beat a path to Mark Waldrep's door and have him record them. A lot of them will only be heard on CD's -a very inferior format if there ever was one. Thank God I have a couple of Barclay-Crocker reel to reel tapes of Joan Baez. Analog all the way. It is almost a religious experience to hear those with her one-in-a-100 billion voice. We need to hear her recorded by Waldrep, and ditto for the Stones and a lot more. What if Pavoratti had been recorded by Aix in say 2000 when DVD-A came out? Now we will have only the lousy CDs, unless somehow Waldrep could get hold of the master tapes and do a DVD-A, ala Beatles Love, of Pavoratti. Are you reading this, Mark? I swear, a movement should be started to get these tapes to Waldrep. The billion Pavoratti fans would arrange for it if they knew what Waldrep can do.
And do look into that DVD "For All Mankind" on The Criterion Collection Number 54, 79 min., Dolby Digital 5.1, 1.33:1 ratio. wwww.criterionco.com. 1989. They took film from different missions, so the Astronauts keep changing. Even threw in some footage from Gemenii and Skylab missions, which to accuracy nuts is a little jarring. Said the Gemeni footage was so good they couldn't resist. Really remarkable camera work they did on the moon, especially when camera on a mount and controlled from earth.

I didn't know there was a dvd-a version of Love. I'll have to check it out for sure! I love the Beatles and I own all of their albums.
On a side note, I also work for GM but in Australia. I haven't been with the company anywhere near as long as you though, I wasn't even born when the lunar excursion vehicle was on display in your building.
