Will Achtung Baby get a HD release?


Recommended Posts

It looks like the box they are putting out has a DVD that contains dolby stuff and some pcm tracks but it doesn't say a word about anything high res in the collection. I think you can assume if they didn't put it in the 600 dollar box set it will not be released as that would be the natural place to find it first. OTOH there is a copy of NLOTH in 16/96 (and not vinyl) that is floating out there on the interwebs and seems to have a bit more dynamics than the cd version but not really night and day. You know these lads are all pissy about releasing anything in high res because they are convinced the unwashed masses will pirate their stuff. Perhaps if they released something like Achtung Baby again they'd have something to worry about! A JOKE-sort of...

I'd go as far back as Joshua Tree or Rattle and Hum!

Perhaps there's a special "Mastered for iTunes" that contains some nice DRM!

Didn't see that coming at all. Of course they didn't really stretch the envelope too much...That was in the golden era before Cds started getting REALLY loud so it might be good.

EDIT: they also have the "short" version available at a lower cost:

The sound quality is very good to my ear...YMMV!!!
