Forums » Live » No SACD release of From Genesis to revelation?

I´ve heard that Genesis first album will not be re-released by EMI along with all the rest of the early ones on SACD and DVD-audio this spring. Someone with power, please act, if you can do something about this. It has been released so many times by so many, so why miss out on the big one?

Sorry, it should have been posted under "Discography" but I guess I did something wrong. First time, y know. How to move it, I don´t know.

Perhaps because it was only recorded on 4 track or something and it would be like trying to make a silk purse from a sow's ear?

Good point! .
But I don´t really care. Release it with the awful sound it is, or as good as it gets but at least with the same type of cover so the re-release is complete. Am I stubborn. or what? Sow´s ear sounds in a way really interesting if left a sow´s ear but in a flashy package. False marketing. Hear the awful sound of this SACD with as bad sound as it has always been. Plays on normal CD-players. Hybrid SACD.
But the audio on the first release was actually even mono.

Glad you did not wished, that they make a 5.1-Surround-MIX out of the Monosource!

Wouldn´t that (5.1) be like standing in the middle of a room with the actual amplifiers and instruments without remix, if you have good fantasy and have had a few drinks and you simply closes your eyes? Positive thinking on a negative topic in a audio fanatic world.
Maybe I should wish for that after all. :-]

They don't have the rights to that album. Jonathon King owns it, and he actually just released a remastered version a couple years ago.
