Moving Pictures 5.1 surround sound remix available for pre-order

Sun, Feb 20, 2011@4:51PM | comments removed/disabled

UPDATE - 2/20@8:51PM: As a few of you have pointed out, it doesn't look like you can actually pre-order yet through Amazon US, but you can sign up to be notified when it's available. What's odd is that you can pre-order it through Amazon Canada (CD+DVD, CD+BD) and Amazon UK (CD+DVD, CD+BD) although it's listed as an import in both cases.

We learned last week via MusicTap that the 5.1 surround sound remix of Moving Pictures will be released on April 5th and it is now available for pre-order as a 2-disc set via Amazon in a CD plus DVD format or CD plus Blu-ray format. The CD looks to contain the stereo mix while the DVD/Blu-ray contains the Audiophile 5.1 Surround and Stereo mix. As an added bonus the DVD/Blu-ray also contains 5.1 mixes of the music videos for Tom Sawyer, Limelight and Vital Signs. You can pre-order the CD+DVD at this link and the CD+Blu-ray at this link. Alex Lifeson had first mentioned that Rush would be releasing a 5.1 surround sound remix of Moving Pictures in a Planet Rock interview a few weeks ago and elaborated on it in his VH1 Classic Rock Nights interview the following week saying how pleased he was with the results. Rush engineer Richard Chycki gave some more insight into the remix in a recent blog post on his website. Moving Pictures celebrated its 30th anniversary since its release on February 12, 1981 last Saturday. Thanks to Gisabun for the heads up.
