I have just heard the rumour that the DVD-A release has been delayed till January thanks to problems with the authoring - anyone else heard this?

Here's the goss from my "source" !!
--------------------------
It was reported at:

http://www.musictap.net/

Look in the Bumps section on the right of the web page and there's a mention of it being bumped to Jan 13. Click on it to get more detail.

Of course, it could be possible that they author the DVD-A separately for UK / US releases but I'd be surprised if thats the case.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Also, in the archives section of MusicTap it reports:

"Mike Oldfield's expected DVD-Audio of Tubular Bells 2003 will be delayed a tad as it is continuing its authoring process. The disc is now expected on January 13. "

MusicTap generally gets all its stuff from the main source and is pretty reliable.

And what is an authoring process ?

For someone who doesn't even have a DVD player (and less a DVD A player), and won't buy the TB2003 DVD-A. But who is just interested.

The process by which they encode the material onto the disc (as far as I know!;)

I don't have DVD-A either but will be buying the disc for its TB demos which I can at least hear in stereo!

And it takes them months to choose how they will encode in a standardised format ? Weird... :O

My trusty Pioneer CD deck (bought in 1994) is starting to look a little rusty. LOL *sigh* Dunno if I want to jump ship on it just yet...not until more stuff is released in this new format. This is another tantalizing reason, though.

Can I perhaps upgrade my ears as well so I can hear all them extra 48khz? ;)

The new official date being given by Warner via Noble PR is November 24th. I'm sure they'll find a way to drag it out until January, though  :/

As the Noble PR site is stating 1st Dec as the release date, is there any sign of it or is the January date the more acurate?

I won't give up my CD's so easily. Just as I haven't given up my vinyl yet.

Just struck me there, with TB2003 not being released until this year, doesn't that kind of screw up the title?
For me the big attraction of the re-recording was always going to be the 5.1 surround mix, which is now going to be released closer to the 31st anniversary than the 30th!

Mind you, could we have expected anything else from old Mikey boy? :)

Maybe they could delay it until January 2005 (I'm sure Warner wouldn't find that very hard) and call it Tubular Bells 2005.1...

I've seen a new date of January 11th quoted (on totaldvd.net). We'll soon see if that's accurate or not...

Hello to everybody, in Spain it's being sold.

Look at the following site for example:www.elcorteingles.es


Best Regards from Spain.
