FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | Time – 02:37:13 minutes | 3,04 GB | Genre: Rock
Source: DVD  | Artwork: Front cover | © Chrysalis Records  – Parlophone Records
Recorded: 1974 at Morgan Studios, London

OS ANGELES – In 1974, Jethro Tull announced plans for WarChild, a multi-faceted project that was to encompass a feature-length film, a soundtrack album, as well a new album from the band. In October of that year, Tull released a 10-song album that would climb to #2 in the U.S. and the top 15 in the U.K., but the film and accompanying soundtrack were shelved. To commemorate the 40-year anniversary of this ambitious experiment, Parlophone will revisit WarChild with several releases.

Highlights from the set include:
– Original album and bonus tracks (three previously unreleased), remixed in 5.1 surround and stereo by Steven Wilson.
– 10 orchestral pieces (nine previously unreleased) written for the film’s soundtrack, 4 of which are remixed in 5.1 surround and stereo by Steven Wilson.
– Flat transfers of the original LP mix at 96/24, and the quadrophonic version (with 2 bonus tracks) in 4.0.
– “The Third Hoorah” promo footage, and footage from a January 1974 photo session/press conference where the WarChild project was announced.
– An 80-page booklet featuring an extensive history of the project, a film script synopsis, track-by-track annotations by Ian Anderson, plus rare and unseen photographs.

Artist: Pink Floyd | Album: Wish You Were Here | Style: Art Rock, Progressive Rock | Year: 2011 [1975 original] | Quality: DVD-Audio (MLP 5.1 96kHz/24Bit, MLP 4.0 96kHz/24Bit, MLP 2.0 96kHz/24Bit) + Audio-DVD (Dolby AC3 5.1, Dolby AC3 4.0 (~448 kbps, 640 kbps), LPCM 2.0 ~1536 kbps) | Bitrate: lossless | Tracks: 5 | Size: ~5.52 Gb + 2.15 Gb | Recovery: 3% | Covers: in srchive | Release: BluRay-rip (Immersion Box – Disc 5) © Pink Floyd Music Ltd. | EMI Records Ltd. (50999 029438 9 3) + original Audio-DVD (Immersion Box – Disc 3) | Note: Not Watermarked

Pink Floyd followed the commercial breakthrough of Dark Side of the Moon with Wish You Were Here, a loose concept album about and dedicated to their founding member Syd Barrett. The record unfolds gradually, as the jazzy textures of “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” reveal its melodic motif, and in its leisurely pace, the album shows itself to be a warmer record than its predecessor. Musically, it’s arguably even more impressive, showcasing the group’s interplay and David Gilmour’s solos in particular. And while it’s short on actual songs, the long, winding soundscapes are constantly enthralling.

Neil Young – Hawks & Doves (1980/2003) [DVD Audio to FLAC 24bit/176,4kHz]

Neil Young – Hawks & Doves (1980/2003)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/176.4kHz | Time – 00:30:33 minutes | 908 MB | Genre: Rock
Source: DVD-Audio (Watermarked!)  | Front cover | © Reprise Records
Recorded: 1974–77, 1980 at Quadrafonic, Nashville; Village Recorders, LA; Indigo Recording Studio, Malibu; Triad Recording Studio, Ft. Lauderdale, FL and Gold Star Recording Studio, Hollywood, CA

Following the triumph of Rust Never Sleeps, Hawks & Doves benefited from the enormous critical goodwill Neil Young had amassed, though fans and critics nevertheless were baffled by its set of obscure acoustic and country-tinged songs. The seven-plus-minute “The Old Homestead” (copyright 1974) was interpreted by some as an allegory for Young’s relationship to CSNY, perhaps because that was the only way to make any sense of the most mysterious Young lyric since “The Last Trip to Tulsa.” In retrospect, now that it’s known Young was distracted by domestic medical concerns while working on the album, its theme of perseverance in the face of adversity, both in a personal context of family commitment (“Stayin’ Power,” “Coastline”), and in a national context of hard work and patriotism (“Union Man,” “Comin’ Apart at Every Nail,” “Hawks & Doves”) seems more apparent, as does the sense that Young may have been trying to fulfill his recording contract (even with the inclusion of trunk songs like “The Old Homestead,” the album runs less than half an hour) while devoting a bare minimum of his time and attention to the effort. The result is correspondingly slight. –William Ruhlmann
