Tales From Topographic Oceans is the fifth in a series of remixed and expanded Yes classics. The album has been remixed in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound from the original multi-track tapes by Steven Wilson, and is fully approved by Yes.
The CDs feature the new mix of the original double album, an unedited / extended version of Dance of the Dawn (side one), and 5 newly created “single” edits focussing on the song sections of the extended pieces.
A third CD exclusive to this edition features a complete alternate version of the album using live tracks and studio run throughs. Of these “High The Memory” (a studio run-through of side 2), and Ritual (live in Zurich, April 1974) are previously unreleased.
The Blu-Ray features:
– 5.1 PCM Surround Sound (24bit/96khz) and in DTS-HD MA 5.1 (24bit/96khz)
– Hi-res (24bit/96khz) 2016 stereo mix
– Original album mix in a hi-res flat transfer from an original stereo master tape source (24bit/192khz). We believe this is the earliest master of the original mix to be issued in the digital era.
– Extended Dance of the Dawn in stereo and 5.1 surround sound + 5 single edits (stereo only), all mixed from the multi-track tapes by Steven Wilson.
– Instrumental mixes
– Full alternate album featuring: sides 1 and 3 from the 2003 Rhino CD, a previously unreleased studio run-through of Side 2 and previously unreleased live version of Side 4.
– full album needle-drops of an original UK vinyl pressing and US banded promo pressing.
Original Roger Dean artwork expanded & restored with material from the Roger Dean archive & prepared with full approval of the artist.
