    I'm glad about the Yes reissues, but if you can afford it, the remastered mini-sleeve Japanese HDCD's (phew - all in one breath) are pretty good. And if you have a HDCD decoder you will find them very impresive. By the way, the reissue campaign will continue and include in early 2002 "90125" "Big Generator" and the comp "Yesterdays". I have already put in my order!

    Rhino should also reissue the movie of The Last Waltz on DVD.
    It's been out of print on VHS for quite awhile now.

    According to this article in Rolling Stone, Robbie Robertson and Martin Scorcese are working on a new DVD of the film with extra material.

    John Buchanan I'm just a headphone kinda guy.

    I know I keep harping on about this, but in the Japanese HDCD series of Yes albums, avoid Fragile and Close to the Edge at all costs - they are way inferior to the regular US remasters. Yessongs, TFTO and Relayer are excellent. I don't know about any others...... forum opinions?

    I wish we could get Bill Inglot on the forum to discuss his approach to remastering. I have many Rhino reissue Cd's from the late 1980's and early 1990's and the results are extremely variable. For example, the Nazz albums--the first sounds great, the second sounds like it was mastered from vinyl, and the third has "guide vocal" versions from Todd Rundgren where the album vocals were done by Stewkey. Sometimes he reissues in mono, sometimes in stereo, you never know.At least engineers like Larry Walsh, Herb Powers, Tom Coyne, and last but not least, Steve Hoffman have an identifiable standard where you can expect a certain sound or result.

    I think Bill Inglot would not be receptive to a forum where people asked him about his work. He would have to answer a lot of questions with "...because it sounded good on my car radio" and "...because we didn't have enough time to find the master" and "...it sounded good to me on my ipod."
