Super deluxe CD set is now available to pre order on Amazone UK. Just ordered mine. They're listing it at £64.99 but if the price drops they charge you the lower price.

Isn't it weird that the dvd show ends with Head? I know that's how the show went down but that's weird he chose to close with Head.

Like I've said:

We're all here for ridiculous comments.

yeah, i was hoping for that one neutral

the only changes i would make to this set is to ditch most of the single edits and other stuff
on disc 2 and just put more alternate versions of album tracks (extended/alternate mix/etc)
and a couple more era tracks on there (like "u should b mine", "fox trap", "boom boom" etc).

beyond that i'm glad we're getting a decent amount of material, which bodes quite well for
the future reissues. yay.



on this set ....IBitch ....one is 4:14 and other is 4:39 ......? whats the difference???

They really should have done a 25$ deluxe CD set like PR deluxe, with the album remasterized + CD3+CD4+ the dvd.
Keep the radio edit CD and the live CD for the super deluxe edition.
.
Also the 4 LP version is ridiculously filled with 2LP of radio edits...
.
They miss the chance to attract a broader audience than just the casual fan.

If the dvd is not remasterized, I can't see the 5cd+1 dvd cost more than 40 dollars.
More than 50$ would be insane

It is insane yes, but WB knows full well that fans are willing to pay an arm and a leg for these kind of sets, hell, people on here even claimed to pay insane amounts of money if a superdeluxe boxset would be released asap. so who can blame them for asking what fans tell them they will are willing to pay?

Dude, what are you even talking about? There isn't a first DVD release of this. This is by definition the first master of this video. Also, "remasterized" isn't a word.

Something in that article makes no sense to me, but maybe I have misunderstood something?


From the article :

With Bernie Grundman remastering at 192/24 bit and cutting lacquers we can expect good sound but as long as the tapes were there why not just cut the original from the goddamned tapes instead of from files? Was there a problem with the original master tape of 1999 that required cutting from digital files?
Read more at https://www.analogplanet....yQQHusB.99


Surely the 192/24 digital master was created from the original master tapes, then the digital files had the remastering work done and then the vinyl lacquers were created from that? I don't see much of a problem with this myself.

If the lacquere was created straight from the original tapes, wouldn't that just be exactly what we have already and more of a re-pressing than a remaster? Even if Bernie only had digital masters to work on becasue the tapes were no good, wouldn't those masters have been digitised from the tapes in the first instance?

AFAIK a digital master is already a master of its own, i.e. someone already applied filters etc. (unless it was a flat master). So Bernie has potentially "inferior" sources to work with.

.

Also, every master is different, even if you use the same source. Read http://www.realhd-audio.com/?p=1612 .

Thanks, the article was interesting. So it seems now the question is just, did Bernie produce the 192k master from the original tapes, or is did he work from somebidy else's digital master?

I don't really have a preference one way or another so long as we get a good remaster.

Most likely the Amazon UK page for the Super Deluxe Vinyl set is going to be https://www.amazon.co.uk/...07XPRD4S4/ , but right now there isn't much there.

.

I'm basing it on the ASIN (= the part after the "/dp/" in the URL), which is often the same accross all Amazon stores.

.

Case in point, there are the Amazon USA links for all the versions, where I've simply taken the Amazon UK links and replaced amazon.co.uk with amazon.com:

I wonder if this will sell better than Originals?

Also wonder how sales will compare to PR deluxe? Should give an indication for how large/small the market is for these type of releases.
