Rush "Sectors" Box Sets Coming November 21st
The reissuing of Rush's back catalog of music during their Universal/Mercury Records days is nothing new. However Rush will now receive an interesting "Box Set" treatment. According to the Universal Music Group, three distinct Rush "Sector" Box sets will be released this November 21st. Within each "Sector" box set, one album will receive a 5.1 surround sound treatment.
From the Universal Music Group's Distribution Infosheet:
"On November 21st, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) celebrates the legacy of Canadian rock trio Rush with the release of three separate six-disc box sets which together spans their entire historic Mercury Records recording career. Each 'Sector' contains five of their 15 Mercury albums in chronological order, all transferred to high resolution 96kHz/24-bit and digitally remastered for optimal quality. In addition, each volume includes and exclusive booklet packed with unpublished photos, original album lyrics and credits, and features one album from each set specially remixed on DVD in high resolution 96kHz/24-bit, 5.1 surround sound and stereo, compatible with both DVD-Audio players and DVD-Video players.

Thanks to Eric from Power Windows for passing along the news.
The packing aside, which I'm sure will be cool, I'm really looking forward to A Farewell to Kings in 5.1!ReplyDelete
SBN and Signals in 5.1 will be nice, too -- but the atmosphere of AFTK is so well suited to the 5.1 treatment. Can't wait!
I have been waiting for this ones so long, finally a wish came trur, looking forward for the first 2ReplyDelete
Why not all in 5.1? That would be worth buying them all again...ReplyDelete
Not really sure what the point to only one album per set being in 5.1. But then, I don't really believe in remixing 2 channels into 5.1, either. I wasn't impressed with the multichannel mix of "Moving Pictures". I'd be far more interested in each album being remastered in 2 channel 192kHz/24-bit on Blu-ray or in FLAC.ReplyDelete
