    With the Last Waltz, I hope they go back to the original performances instead of the overdubbed/rerecorded stuff done for original album...

    Hmm, does that include Head Games and Double Vision? Are the Warner/Atlantic issues all that bad? I'd go with Rhino as a last alternative after all, Foreigner is bassy music...

    I am pretty excited about the 4 cd set for The Waltz. I just hope they do a good job. Any release date given?

    I also noticed that 3 more Elvis Costello remastered cds will be released on February 19 by Rhino. These include: Blood and Chocolate, This Year's Model and Brutal Youth. Overall I like what they have done so far with the first batch and look forward to these as well...just more cds that I have to REBUY AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN........

    Sometime late last year, when "The Last Waltz" was supposed to be shown on VH1 with some interviews/commentary by Scorsese and Robertson, they had a webpage up where the two discussed plans for a DVD release. I forgot the details on that one, but they also mentioned how they planned to reissue the soundtrack.

    Among the things they mentioned was remixing the soundtrack on CD. According to Robertson, he was heavily involved with the original mixing of the documentary, while the mixing for the album release was done mostly by others not in the Band. He said he was always pleased with the mix in the film, but disappointed with the mix on the album.

    By the way, since when did WEA get control of the first two albums by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers? Does MCA still own "Damn the Torpedoes" through "Into the Great Wide Open" (I'm guessing they do since they reissued three of them last year).

    One of the 2 or 3 Rhino's I bought was Foreigner's Jukebox Heroes Anthology. Its one of the most shrill and unlistenable CD's in my collection.

    That Little Feat LP is one of my all time favorites. The band was definately at it's zenith during that tour. The MOFI LPs are great but the Warner CD sucks. Very compressed and dull, it's also missing a couple of tracks to squeeze it onto one disc. I'm happy to see it getting remastered. I'd always hoped that Steve might get that project. Oh well, let's hope Rhino does the job right. ;)

    The Rhino site also lists the Last Waltz as DVD-Audio!

    I have to agree with Drew on this one as 99% of Rhino cds that I own are quite shrill sounding.

    I hope that whoever purchases The Band: The Last Waltz will post their listening results here as that would be an awesome set providing it doesn't come with that patented shrill sound.

    Foreigner 4 I'm sort of questionable about due to the fact that the Atlantic Gold sounds pretty darn good compared to the standard release. The standard releases have that smiley eq. problem, BIG TIME!

    Until I hear different, the Foreigner remasters will do fine, as they have some BASS, especially "Head Games".

    The problem is... Warner have "bought" Rhino... so they do all remaster for Warner! That doesn't sound good for me, but it's like a lottery when I hear about upcoming remasters from Rhino! Sometimes they really sound good (Ray Charles, Randy Newman)... and sometimes they really sound terrible (Yardbirds).

    So I don't expect a wonder from Bill Inglot and Dan Hersch. The Little Feat boxset is an improvement over the first CD pressing, but not so amating good like if Steve have had his fingers on the tapes!

    And if you see the release schedule from Rhino... that's like rush hour in the mastering room! They don't have the time like others - they must earn $$$

    For those of you who don't like DigiPrep, they don't do all of Rhino's discs (though they do an overwhelming majority of them). The Ray Charles career box set was mostly done by Doug Sax.

    That seems disengenous of Robertson to say. The soundtrack album was heavily overdubbed and rerecorded, and he definitely was involved in that. It wasn't someone else redoing his guitar parts without his knowledge. Levon Helm commented that the only part of the Last Waltz album that was actually recorded live was his drumming and Muddy Waters' vocal, because he refused to participate in the overdubbing.

    Hmmm, I bought the Jukebox cover hits set and it's sonics rhyme with a word that sounds like trucks; sheeeeesh, why can't Rhino not master for boomboxes or clock radios???? Bright peaky midrange makes me not wanna listen to that disc - my speakers are especially good through the mids and when a disc gets a boost through that sensitive to the ears zone it makes me cringe. Too bad Steve can't make a trip through the Warner vaults and do some work. I doubt he could crank out the product like cans of commodity meat like Warner's seems to require... :rolleyes:

    The DVD-Audio of Foreigner "4" is pretty impressive.

    The most Rhino 5.1 remasters were not remastered by Rhino, but from Steve Hall at Future Disc Systems... also the upcoming DVD-A's from The Band's Last Waltz.

    I found the Rhino remasters on the bright side as well. Maybe the engineers should be under obligation to go see a live acoustic performance once a week so they can remember what real instruments sound like, and that they are made of brass and wood, not aluminum foil and sheet metal.

    I also have best of Ronnie Montrose that came out on Rhino last year. Way too bright, brittle, and abrasive.

    I have some Emerson Lake and Palmer remasters on Rhino that aren't as bright, but they aren't remastered by Bill Inglot like the Foreigner Anthology and the above mentioned disc.

    I was thinking about buying the DEVO-Pioneers Who Got Scalped Anthology, but I can't seem to find out over on cdnow.com if it was remastered by Inglot or not.

    The track notes to the CD at Rhino's website have the now-familiar "Sound produced by Bill Inglot" notation. They don't say who did the mastering but I'd be suprised if it wasn't Dan Hirsch and DigiPrep.

    I was just over at YesWorld.com which is just about as close to an official Yes web page as there is, and it says that Rhino is going to be releasing a new box set with a bunch of complete classic Yes albums in it some time this year.

    I'm a big progressive rock fan, so right now I think I'm going to cry.
