Steven’s new stereo / 5.1 surround sound remixes of both Yes “Close to the Edge”, and XTC “Nonsuch” are now in stock and shipping from Headphone Dust.
Both come in a choice of Blu-Ray / CD or DVDA / CD editions, each containing new stereo and 5.1 mixes, and the original stereo mix, all flat transfers with no additional mastering. The blu-ray editions also contain additional bonus material such as instrumental mixes, and on the XTC release demo / video material.
These releases are the first in a series of artist approved deluxe definitive editions covering both of these band’s classic albums – each release requires a tremendous amount of work, not just on the audio, but also on compiling the bonus material, artwork and other archive material, so they will be released gradually with the next in each series planned for Spring 2014.
Also released last month was Steven’s stereo / 5.1 remix of Jethro Tull’s “Benefit” from 1970.
