ELP's new record company Razor & Tie will be re-releasing the back-catalogue later this year.

The first two albums (s/t and Tarkus) have been remixed in 5.1 by Steven Wilson.

I guess some of you may be aware of this already -- it's been "known" for a few weeks now, since Steven Wilson hinted about it on another forum (see post #25 in linked thread).

Fripp has also mentioned it in his diary:
Quote Steven is the Numero Uno in-demand go-to Sonic Re-Vibrator of albums from the so-called Progressive Period. One of Stevenís recent jobs has been remixing the first two ELP albums. After several visits that fell through, Greg arrived to check-out the re-mixes. Steven was surprised to learn how much of my guitar playing I had learnt from Greg himself.


Not really interested in 5.1 myself (and I already have the best sounding cd masterings of classic ELP), but I thought some of you guys might like a heads-up.

I am so glad I didn't bother with the last round of remasters.  Doesn't mean I'll jump on the train for those editions as I am pretty much broke.

If Steven Wilson's got his fingerprints on it, I'll be sure to pick up Tarkus.  I still haven't gotten it on CD - love the sound of my vinyl copy - but he did such a great job with Aqualung, I don't think I can resist this one.

Hi Capt Fongsby, Smile

Thanks for this wonderful news!  I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A very important thing that is overlooked in a project like this is not the 5.1 mix(which I find to be a  game changer) is that in fact most CD releases were never taken from a low gen master when they were made. For the 5.1 mixes, the actual multi-track tape is used, but not before it is digitally ripped and then meticulously cleaned track by track.  Then being remixed to 5.1 or an additional 2.0 mix.  The result is far superior to any existing 2.0 mix, for sure. And the new 2.0 mix is far better then any existing CD release.

I have the Brain Salad Surgery DVD-Audio 5.1 and it is impossible to describe.  It is like being in the control room with ELP & Eddie Offord on the faders.

Thanks again Capt Fongsby for this great news!   LOL Big smile Tongue Smile

By the way it looks like the records are:

"Tarkus" and "Pictures at an Exhibition"

Great news!! Weird though as I always got the impression that Wilson wasn't a big fan of ELP.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Great! My Tarkus is damaged and I still have to get the debut on CD. I might get BSS too because Shout Factory! didn't really do a good job (my opinion) on remastering that one.

There have been a load of bad remsasterings of Brain Salad Surgery. My favourite album as well. The DVD audio is not very good either sadly.
 
As someone suggested ,Wilson was never an ELP fan although its probably a myth that he was ever a prog fan. He does like Pink Floyd but I think the symphonic thing was never his cup of team. I can't imagine anything stranger than him being the preferred choice to remaster PAAE. Shows just how highly respected he is now and justifiably so imo.

Yeah that was impressive. I'd say Steven is a huge Prog fan or he just knows everything.LOL

^ Cool (He always seem to downplay any great love of the genre in interviews I've heard when he's talked about his influences.) I guess he knows more about the genre than I know about SW.Tongue

I think Steven Wilson, as a professional musician, doesn't want to come across as a fan-boy.

This is not meant to be sarcastic but I would check your equipment or your hearing. Or I would just assume you have poor judgement.

[/QUOTE]

Anyone who thinks any ELP remasters sound better than the original releases of the albums on cd's in the 80's are spliting hairs here-the LP's always sounded better. As far as any ELP remasters are concerned, the ONLY releases that have a noticeable sound quality improvement were the MFSL cd's or MFSL LP releases. I guess this is the wrong forum for anyone who knows sound quality.
