Discussion in 'Music Corner' started by Daniel Falaschi, May 7, 2015.
But that was long after Rock Island....
When I interviewed you back in 2002, we talked a little about surround sound. It was kind of a novel thing then. You told me you weren’t a big fan of it but, of course, since then Steven Wilson has done surround sound mixes of I believe five Tull albums and your last two solo albums. Would it be fair to say that you’ve kind of come around to surround sound? Is it something you listen to, that you find yourself enjoying?
I accept it as part of the choice that we should give to our listeners, to our fans, who we provide choice to. We give them the opportunity to download MP3 tracks as individual tracks, a whole album; 24-bit albums in digital download form. We give them CDs, DVDS. We give them stereo. We give them surround sound. In some cases, when I worked in a precursor to today’s surround sound back in the 70s, in quadraphonic, we even gave them quadraphonic mixes. In fact, some of the work that’s currently going on in terms of remastering the box sets, we’ll feature songs … the early quadraphonic work I did around the time, it’s from the Gallery and Too Old to Rock ’n’ Roll and some of the Warchild album. In fact, I think the albums that I did — I think I went back and remixed. It wasn’t something that particularly intrigued me then, other than it was a new technology, but it was a very flawed technology. At least back then, the digital encoding of the way it channels information was really poor and it sounded terrible. But the mixes on tape, on the other hand, sounded fine. It was amusing to do, but it wasn’t something that I felt I wanted to continue with because the technology wasn’t there yet.
So after all the discussion, there was quad for TOTRR..
You see? Some people know what they are talking about...
Very quiet days...will it mean soon announced?
Ian has announced it in the interview.
Thank God for this. I can breathe again.
Oui - hooray for quad.
Isn't the quad for the title song on the 25th anniversary box set? That version sounds better
A tweet from Dave Gibbbons;
I gave an interview, sent them a yellowed press clipping and posed for photos. Haven't seen the finished thing yet
No, the 25th Anniversary box has a remixed version of 'Too Old…', but this remix was completed in the early 90's.
Confirmed release date! November 27
Awesome! Thanks for letting us know, I can't wait!!!!
This is an album I'm not interested in, but that I will end buying anyway because the quality of these re-releases is extremely high.
In time for Christmas gift giving.
This is how I feel about this one as well.
I just interviewed Ian Anderson who confirmed that Wilson has begun work on Songs From the Wood.
Will that interiew be posted anywhere?
Does it mean we can already start the SFTW 40th thread?
Just did ;-)
Why not start HHorses while you're at it.
Proably next month before the show. I write occasionally for a Boston online zine called ARtsFuse, (as does GentleGiant, another poster here).
And call Jakko to mix a full concert of the Bursting Out tour to be included by the way...
Great! For sure.
