Moving Pictures 30th anniversary deluxe edition release

Mon, Apr 4, 2011@1:53PM | comments removed/disabled

The Moving Pictures 5.1 surround sound 30th anniversary deluxe edition is officially released tomorrow and has already begun shipping from several retailers (some folks have even received their copies already). The CD+DVD version will be available via multiple retailers but the CD+Blu-ray is only being sold exclusively through Best Buy for the first 30 days; other retailers will have the Blu-ray version on May 3rd. In celebration of the release, Sound & Vision editor-in-chief Mike Mettler (who has already had great things to say about the remix) has put together an article titled Rush: The Fountain of Surround where he chronicles Rush's decade-long journey toward embracing the 5.1 format by compiling bits of interviews he's done with the band over the past several years. It's a very interesting read and you can check it out at this link.

As I'd mentioned over the weekend, pre-orders of the release have astonishingly already propelled Moving Pictures back into the Billboard 200 after 30 years; it's currently sitting at #137 for the week of April 9th. They even still list its peak position at #3 (this occurred back in 1981) and that it's been on the charts for 69 weeks. You can get more details regarding the Moving Pictures deluxe edition in this post and order your copy at Amazon (CD+DVD, CD+Blu-ray). In celebration of the release, John at Cygnus-X1.net is holding a contest to give away five copies of the CD/DVD version. The first winner was selected this past Friday, April 1st (congrats Mike Markiewicz of Riverview, Michigan!). John will be giving 4 more away; one each Friday for the next 4 weeks. To enter just go to this link. There's also a 30-second trailer for the release which you can watch below or at this location.
