I am very thankful that we have an artist with such instinctual technological skills who brings us these fantastic high-resolution progressive rock remixes. Steven Wilson embodies the true spirit of progressive rock. His genius is our joy.
When I think about how much trust Yes, Robert Fripp of King Crimson, Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull place in his innate abilities it makes me proud to own and promote these recordings. As Jon Anderson has sung, “Your temple is the harmony, You feel the sacred ground” (from To Be Alive.)
The latest remix is Tales From Topographic Oceans the fifth in a series of expanded Yes (official) classics, released in 3CD/Blu-Ray and 2CD/2DVDA configurations. The album has been remixed in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound from the original multi-track tapes, and approved by Yes.
2 CDs feature the new mix of the original album, an unedited / extended version of Dance of the Dawn (side one), and 5 newly created “single” edits focussing on the song sections of the extended pieces. A third CD available only with the blu-ray edition features a complete alternate version of the album using live tracks and studio run throughs. Of these “High The Memory” (a studio run-through of side 2), and “Ritual” (live in Zurich, April 1974) are previously unreleased.
The Blu-Ray and DVDAs feature the original stereo mix, and the new stereo and 5.1 mixes in high resolution. The blu-ray additionally contains the extended Dance of the Dawn in stereo & 5.1 surround sound, the 5 edits, instrumental mixes, the alternate versions, and other bonus material, all in high resolution.

Thank you Steven Wilson, you bring such life and resonance to my Progressive Rock music library.
