It is a great time to be a prog rock fan, again. For the past couple of years we have seen the launch of series in re-releasing the best stuff of prog rock bands of the 70s. These are not mere regurgitations of the same stuff on CD again but Definitive or Deluxe editions of classic (prog) rock albums. They are remixed from the original multi-track studio tapes and include outtakes or alternate versions of songs. It all started with the 40th anniversary King Crimson cd/dvd-a sets, which are amazing both in contents and sound. All include high resolution surround mixes of the albums and bonus tracks. Then, there are the ELP remix sets (self titled album and Tarkus so far but Brain Salad Surgery and Trilogy are soon to be out). We have the wonderful Jethro Tull Collector’s Editions of Aqualung, Thick as a Brick and the latest one: Benefit. A Passion’s Play is next. And last but not least the Yes catalog is getting the same treatment: the first remix set is Close to the Edge in both cd/dvd-a and cd/blu-ray versions. The genius behind all of these stereo and surround remixes is Steven Wilson - songwriter, musician, producer and prog rock fan.
