David Bowie - Serious Moonlight DS313f frontwithdrawn

Contains NO Video footage

Recorded in Vancouver 1983, and released on both tape and laserdisc with an SQ encoded soundtrack, this concert contains many of Bowies hits.

The laserdisc used was the second release that contained both anolgue & digital audio tracks.

 There were no more than four concerts released with SQ encoded audio, one of which i’ve already released using the CD as a source (DS131f). Another concert will be released in due course.

A new blog

I’m pleased to announce that a new blog dedicated to Blu-Ray to DVD-A releases has just been opened by the same person who runs the SACD to DVD-A blog.

If your a fan of The Who’s ‘Tommy’, you’ll find a conversion of the recent Blu-Ray release there, along with the two Pink Floyd conversions.

Sergius Golowin – Lord Krishna von Goloka

Sergius Golowin - Lord Krishna von Goloka DS311f sm

In 1973, Sergius Golowin teamed up with Klaus Schulze, Bernd Witthüser, Walter Westrupp, Jörg Mierke, Jürgen Dollase and Jerry Berkers (the latter two of Wallenstein) to record the album “Lord Krishna von Goloka”. This very experimental album featured chantings by Golowin over improvised electronic instrumentation and acoustic guitar, and is considered by many to be a classic example of cosmic krautrock.

Here is another CB release. This time a Hugo Montenegro title sourced from Q8. ‘The Best of Hugo Montenegro’ If you enjoy music from spaghetti westerns then you should like this one.
