That'll do nicely, I hope the packaging isnt CDs forced into card slips though, please give us nice plastic inlays so the CDs don't get scratched each time they are taken out.

Very, very happy to see some rehearsal versions and a full live gig too.

Most record companies are trying to minimise the amount of plastic in their physical releases for obvious reasons - my own label being an example whereby we don't use plastic cases, trays, plastic wraps and source recycled elements for the packaging & distribution.

So far, it's not completely possible to avoid plastic in the case of the record or CD itself but jewel trays & cases are slowly becoming less common and, overall, I think that is for the better.

I absolutely hate when discs are shoved into cuts made in card/books.

My ideal for the best of both worlds would be like the Moments in eden set where there was a spindel the CD(s) could be put on so the disc wasn't directly touching the card, nice and easy to remove the disc without scratching it up.

Personally don't need a 5.1 mix, since I don't have the equipment. But no complaints here. Of course, video of a full gig would have been nice, but as it doesn't seem to exist, not much to do about it.
A treat, really. smile

Ordered the CD boxset from Amazon, very much looking forward to those extras.

Shame for me that the CD version omits the Vienna US edit version as thats a vinyl exclusive track. Also a shame for me again that Townsend aren't offering an exclusive art print on the CD box set as I would have bought from them otherwise (its exclusive to the vinyl boxset).

I will get the CD set of course. Now, as a vinyl guy I am tempted by the 4 LP set as well, but my wallet is crying already. I will definitely get the 2 LP set though.
My only small gripe is that I would have wanted the Wilson remix on vinyl also. Oh well, maybe for RSD 2021.... wink smile

When Steven Wilson remixed/remastered "Nonsuch" by XTC, numerous cross fades were removed and the songs were all separate tracks. I am wondering if this is going to be the case with his mix of "Vienna".

Really looking forward to this, especially the live set.

It's been bugging me so I thought I'd correct the DVD listing earlier in this thread: the Finnish website in their obvious desperation to break the terms of pre-announcement agreements didn't include all the info on the disc. For the purists amongst us every track is available in uncompressed 24/96 PCM. Which is nice.


Disc 6 [DVD]
01. Astradyne (5.1 Surround Mix) - 24bit/96khz PCM/DTS 96/24 5.1/DOLBY AC3 5.1
02. New Europeans (5.1 Surround Mix) - 24bit/96khz PCM/DTS 96/24 5.1/DOLBY AC3 5.1

I'm going for the CD/DVD boxset and have to say this looks a fantastic package and seems very good value too, especially when you compare to similar offerings from the Beatles, Paul McCartney, etc.

Chrysalis are doing a great job with the Ultravox catalogue (not to detract from the excellent work EMI did in collaboration with Extreme Voice) and I'm particularly excited to see the recent announcement on the EV newsletter that the label have started remastering the band's promo videos. I've long thought that the videos would have the potential to look better if newly transferred and edited from the original 16mm camera negatives (in a simlar way to how TV shows such as the Sweeney and The Professionals have been assembled for Bluray release).

Oh and fingers crossed for a deluxe 40th Anniversary of Rage In Eden in 2021, that really would be something!

videos remastered would be cool.

rage in eden is my least favorite album out of the classics, so pass on that.
would love quartet and lament though.

They've remastered the Vienna live at St Albans video, looks really good. Wonder if they have anything else from that gig in the vaults? A whole show remastered would be amazing!

The only other track on film from the concert is Sleepwalk: both these tracks were released with the Very Best Of DVD in 2008 but these are new, restored from the original film, edits with new soundtracks from the St Albans disc(s) included in the 40th Anniversary edition.

The rest of the gig sounds superb too with highlights for me being Western Promise, Quiet Men & Kings Lead Hat.

Wonder whether they filmed the whole show though? It would seem a bit strange to send a crew down to the show and only film two songs? Here's hoping the rest exists somewhere.

Well I guess it's possible but if they did and if they kept it then god knows where it is.
