New stereo and 5.1 mixes by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree)

24/96 flat transfer of the original master

Includes the infamous "Chateau Disaster" recordings

Like its predecessor, Thick as a Brick, A Passion Play, released in 1973, is a concept album with a single song (which was split into two parts on the original vinyl LP release). The theme of the concept is the spiritual journey of one man in the afterlife.

A Passion Play: An Extended Performance, has been given a new stereo mix by Steven Wilson, as well as being mixed for 5.1 surround sound. Not only that, the earlier abandoned sessions that the band recorded in  Chateau d’Herouville in France, get the same treatment – new stereo mixes and 5.1 surround mixes!

The 2CD+2DVD set offers the stereo mixes in hi-res (on the DVDs) while the surround sound options include DTS and Dolby 5.1. A new 2LP vinyl version with the new stereo mix is also being released.

Reviewer: Donald Scarinci
Steve Wilson's 5.1 Surround Sound remix of this Jethro Tull classic is a masterpiece that will now find the praise that it has always deserved. This album has never been appreciated for its genius, but the amazing sound of this remix will make a new generation of fans consider this album as the timeless work of art that it is.
