ps. ALL of the tracklistings on 99% of the websites are wrong and have typos, the above is corrected as much as possible.

I feel a bit ambivalent about this boxset:

On the one hand, I'd really love to hear the Phaedra outtake stuff because, to me, this is the most important album in TD's discography.

On the other hand, though, I am not too keen on buying another re-run of albums I already have (be they re-mastered for the umpteenth time or not). I don't own a BluRay player, and I do not own a Dolby 5.1 installation either.

Not too keen on the bootleg stuff either as I know that even TD also had not-so-glorious moments on stage (in fact, when listening to the Tangerine Tree recordings, there were plenty of those moments).

I think I will wait and see...

Stephen

PS: Sequent C would always be stereo, I would have thought...

SEQUENT C' has been remixed by Steven Wilson in Stereo plus 5.1 and Stereo 96K/24 bit, all produced using the original multi-track mastertapes.

BTW the RAH concert is the first time this has been released complete - as in with the entire lengthy John Peel introduction, AND the end part from the mastertape (rather than previous versions which had to use a fan tape). Above and beyond this, this is the first time it's been heard in STEREO, and mixed by Phil Newell in 1975.

Re PHAEDRA there are 90 minutes of outtakes.

Oedipus Tyrannus (6 tracks - the complete recording) now runs 75 minutes.

The set also includes the ONLY existing real mastertape of TD at Coventry Cathedral (34 minutes) - no BOOTLEG recordings are in the set at all.

Did you know you can disable these on a per post basis ("Disable Smilies in this post")? I did that for your post, so it looks good now.
