Moving Pictures 30th anniversary deluxe edition blu-ray release

Tue, May 3, 2011@11:37AM | comments

The Moving Pictures 5.1 surround sound 30th anniversary deluxe edition was officially released back on April 5th. However, while the CD+DVD version was made available via multiple retailers, the CD+Blu-ray was only sold exclusively through Best Buy until just today; other retailers such as Amazon.com now have the blu-ray edition available as well. You can order your copy of the CD+BD at Amazon at this link (here for the CD+DVD). In addition to the 5.1 remix, the deluxe edition contains 3 bonus music videos from the Le Studio sessions, an extensive gallery with previously unreleased photos from the original recording sessions, new liner notes by music journalist David Fricke and 30th anniversary artwork by original album designer Hugh Syme. You can check out the liner notes at this link and all the images here. After its release last month Moving Pictures re-entered the Billboard 200 after over 30 years at #137 for the week of April 9th before dropping off the charts for the following week of April 16th. It then was back on the charts for the week of April 23rd at #51, at #100 for the week of April 30th, and is currently sitting at #125 for the week of May 7th. Reviews of the remix have been very positive so far; Big Picture, Big Sound gave it their highest rating of 4 stars: Outstanding, and Blu-ray.com gave it 4.5 out of 5 (thanks Mr. K). In both of these reviews the only negative things they had to say were regards to the extras - particularly the quality of the bonus videos.
