EDICIÓN COLECCIONISTAS DEL 40 ANIVERSARIO DE AQUALUNG REMASTERIZADA POR STEVEN WILSON



El próximo octubre ya podremos adquirir la edición del 40 aniversario de Aqualung. El trabajo ha estado dirigido y supervisado por Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) y contendrá:

Vinilo, 2 CD's, DVD, Blue Ray conteniendo material inédito y material gráfico conteniendo entrevistas y fotografías del grupo.

No es la primera vez que el líder de Porcupine Tree se embarca en proyectos de este tipo, ya que colaboró también con la edición del 40 aniversario de In The Court of Crimson King y en otros trabajos de King Crimson.

Como toda edición de coleccionistas suponemos que tendrá un precio elevado, pero por ahora lo desconozco.



Os paso la opinión de Ian Anderson sobre el trabajo realizado por Steven Wilson

Ian's Comments


Well - it's finally here! The superb remixes by Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson in both stereo and 5.1 Surround. Plus the re-mastered original mixes, bonus tracks, alternative versions and takes of the classic Aqualung material from 40 years ago.


When I wrote and recorded these songs and slaved over a hot audio-mixer in Island Records' Basing Street Studios, I never thought we we would be celebrating this 40th Anniversary release, soon to be released in October. But you can't keep a good song down. Many of these are still favourites on stage today in our concerts throughout the world.


I hope you enjoy this splendid EMI release and, if there's someone out there you really love, then why not treat them to the Collector's Edition in all its glory. Or, come to think of it, if there's someone out there you really dislike, then the same might apply. Each to his own. Me - I kinda like it.....


For those of you easily confused about such things, a "remix" is not the same as a "re-master". Remixing involves going back to the original studio multi-track masters and balancing and perfecting the sound on all the individual instrumental and vocal tracks and creating from them a new stereo or 5.1 surround master.


Re-mastering is just the cleaning up and making a new copy of the original stereo master - which usually results in a clearer and more sparkling listening experience than the original, when CDs were usually just the vinyl master copied straight to the then new CD medium. These days, with digital audio, we can afford to get more dynamic range and frequency response compared to the vinyl album and (God forbid) cassette versions of old.


Many thanks to Tim Chacksfield and Steve Davis at EMI for all their hard work and initiative in making this happen. And to the enthusiastic and respectful Steven Wilson. Who has just sent me the remixes of another album to listen to, which he has been working on. But, another year, another story....


Ian Anderson, Jethro Tull

Aurelio Pérez: Cierto que es una buena oportunidad para recuperar este tipo de obras, aunque en ocasiones, el precio de estos box deluxe te hace echar para atrás.

paulamule: Sí, pero a mí ya me ha servido para ir haciendo la lista de Navidad y Reyes.
