Nice! I wonder if they're gonna be truncated/new/revised versions or just the same ol' ones

(And funny for AOR Bleu to make an appearance there one day after I listened to the AOR samples for the first time in years ;) )

(Still prefer Paris Bourges, tho')

Dr_Jones - Tue Jun 19, 2018 3:46 pm

Is this going to be the best of?

And OMG:
Music for Supermarkets (demo excerpt)?

Vozdelosvientos - Tue Jun 19, 2018 5:41 pm

I'm afraid the MFS (demo excerpt) will be the 40 seconds "Diva" extract that somebody shared online some time ago...
Jote - Tue Jun 19, 2018 5:49 pm

Ah, you might be right unfortunately. If it's not part 1 I'll be seriously disappointed.

That's: 'Le Pays De Rose' (2:03) from Les Granges Brûlées (Original Soundtrack).

'The Song of the Burnt Barns' = 'La chanson des granges brûlées' (2:45).

"Le Pays de Rose" from Les Granges Brulees, unfortunately (look at E&R tracklist).

Finaero - Tue Jun 19, 2018 6:42 pm

Ah, yes. Thanks, Oxynoxe and Jote.

Well, yeah. Here's hoping for a full version of the Coachella Opening and Herbalizer (if anything). ;)

Doesn't make sense, right? How could a Deluxe have less than the normal version?

Jote - Wed Jun 20, 2018 10:53 am

People seem to be missing one crucial detail here: the medium type for regular/deluxe version is "Double-CD", while it's "CD" for the box set. I believe it's like this

1. Regular edition: 2 * DOUBLE-CD ( = 4 * CD)
2. Deluxe edition: 2 * DOUBLE-CD ( = 4 * CD)
3. Box set: 4 * CD
4. Vinyl edition: 4 * Vinyl

That might suggest that the "box set" is superior to the "deluxe edition".

shadow - Wed Jun 20, 2018 11:35 am

I'll grab the box set and the vinyl release. Always nice to have something new! Also, please, please, please let that Music for Supermarkets be the first track and not just one of the already released pieces!

Can't order yet on bol.com, here's hoping they'll hurry up. And I'm curious what the announcement will be for Friday if this is announced two days earlier...

Edit: it just sunk in... Still no studio recording of The Sun! ;_;

It's not *fully* announced yet. There's no detailed information on the editions, there's no press release, there's no audio/video teaser/trailer (and I'd be very surprised if there weren't any on the 22nd).

Here's the information I just received from Sony Music regarding the formats:

- 2 CD Jewel Case
- 2 CD Digipack (="Deluxe" at Amazon)
- 4 180 g Vinyl Gatefold + 5.1 Downloadcode

Thanks.

MCs... wow, that's interesting.

But I still think that it's an error and it's 2 * 2CD. Otherwise that track list would not be able to fit on all editions, which would make no sense...

First they bring vinyl back and now this cassette bullshit.

Rarely did musical belief in progress sound as pop-historically valuable as in 1976, when composer, performer, songwriter, sound architect and producer Jean-Michel Jarre released his debut Oxygene. Countless millions of sold units of the record laid the foundation for the unprecedented career of the Frenchman. His pioneering work then triggered a veritable cult, the fastest growing trend the music industry has ever experienced: Electronic Music. Jarre's shows broke three world records and his music always followed his internalized stance that progress is only possible if one is willing to deviate from the norm. With his Best Of PLANET JARRE, the Godfather of Electronic Music is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The 41 handpicked tracks of the album were curated by Jean-Michel Jarre himself and assigned to the four styles and emphases of his musical work. The result was a four-part album on 4 x 180g vinyl LPs, summarized in a hardcover book including download codes for some tracks in 5.1. Sound. The first part, Soundscapes, is made up of nine atmospheric ambience tracks that are clearly inspired by its classic backround and love of film music. Themes, on the other hand, includes the more melodic pieces and world-famous hits like Oxygene 4, Equinoxe 5, and Zoological Studies, which, like all titles, have been remastered. The pieces in the third part are all based on repetitive, hypnotic sequences that illustrate Jarre's role as a pioneer of techno and EDM and include a previously unpublished track Coachella Opening. Rounding out the work of Exploration & Early Work, the part that documents the beginnings of Jarre's musical creation and based on repetitive, hypnotic sequences that can be created only with electronic instruments. Planet Jarre features two brand new titles, Herbalizer and Coachella Opening, as well as rarities such as an early, unreleased demo of Music for Supermarkets, which resulted in the creation of the produced and instantly destroyed album Music For Supermarkets. For a long time, the only LP available on the album was considered to be the world's highest-grossing vinyl. Thus, there are many new and many rediscover on Planet Jarre. Tracks in 5.1. Sound integrated as a download code: 01 Circus 02 Equinoxe 2 03 Equinoxe 5 04 Exit with Edward Snowden 05 Oxygene 15 06 Oxygene 17 07 Oxygene 2 08 Stardust with Armin van Buuren 09 Switched On Leon 10 Coachella Opening 11 Souvenir De Chine 12 Zoolookologie

The above text is an auto-translation from amazon.de.

HOWEVER, different editions have slightly different descriptions, and the box-set description confirms the presence of the cassettes

"So entstand ein vierteiliges Album, das nun im ultimativen Planet Jarre Boxset auf 2CDs, zusätzlich auf 2 Kasetten"

All descriptions however indicate that there are 2 CDs only, which seems weird

All terrific suggestions. Curious if we'll ever get these in a official studio version.

Wasn't this supposed to be released on CD on one point? I don't think it'll happen without all the artists signing up for it. But I don't know the exact details, so who knows.

Made the list more readable. It's a decent selection, but I really had more hope that Jarre would remix all the albums like Mike Oldfield does (well he did the first three and a few others). But even the given lists would've been able to have more impactful tracks like: Ethnicolor, Second Rendez-Vous, Chronology 1 and of course... *sigh*

Zoolook once again being shunned in favour of Zoolookologie! :cry:

Deluxe seems to be just the regular version with different packaging. Regular = jewel case, Deluxe = Digipak

Boxset has 2 CDs and 2 cassettes, but they are probably all mistakenly listed together as 4 "discs"

Only Boxset and Vinyl editions feature the download card for 5.1 versions.

The 5.1 mixes are only as a download?! :|
Finaero - Wed Jun 20, 2018 7:22 pm

I hope we'll find out early if it's just gonna have the Dadwater versions of all the tracks (except for the new and more rare ones i.e. AOR Bleu) or if there's gonna be some revised versions (say, the current tour version of Zoolookologie etc.).

Probably gonna get the regular 2CD edition anyhow due to dadwatering. :P

The CD-only edition will not get you 5.1 downloads, unless you're not interested in them.

Jean-Michel Jarre celebrates 50 years of music with ‘Planet Jarre’

Celebrating 50 years at the forefront of the genre, the Godfather of Electronic Music, Jean-Michel Jarre, will makes a welcome return this September with the extensive double album, Planet Jarre, out on 14 September 2018 via Sony Music.

The release will bring together 41 works from his extensive catalogue (divided into four different sections), hand-picked by Jarre himself, and completely re-mastered to add a new and sparkling freshness to the sound of the package.

Jarre explains:

“Going through the body of my existing work for this project, I realized that I have four quite different styles of composition”, Jarre explains. “There is this common idea that people are focusing on shorter and shorter moments of music by zapping constantly. This is not necessarily true. We are also spending more and more time in our day-to-day life listening to playlists. Wherever we are and whatever we do. This is the reason why I decided to divide this project into four different parts, four different worlds that make up my own world…my own planet. And I hope that you will enjoy the journey.”

Comprising of four parts: Soundscapes, Themes, Sequences, Explorations & Early Works, Planet Jarre is unmistakably and utterly typically Jarre, highlighting a different creative focus of his work and bringing together familiar ambient tracks like Oxygene 1, Equinoxe 2 and Chronology 1, alongside newer pieces like the original title track of Electronica – The Heart of Noise, Stardust (co-composed by Jarre and Armin van Buuren), and the brand new Coachella Opening.

Always fascinated by the best possible sound and technology available, Jarre has mastered some tracks in 5.1 for a unique listening experience.

Planet Jarre is available for pre-order from 22 June on CD, Vinyl and Digital platforms.

My guess: Equinoxe 7 may be the "Jarre a la Concorde" single version and Rendez-Vous the one from the Houston single. Oxygene 1 (live) may be from the "Live in Your Living Room" DVD or (who knows?) from Beijing'81 / Houston'86... if it's really live and not a mistake. Oxygene 8 is too long to be the album version... perhaps a remix or a live one.

Mere speculation, of course...

Vozdelosvientos - Thu Jun 21, 2018 10:00 pm

One more thing...

The tracks in 5.1 are not the same of the album tracklist. There will be availlable only as a digital download and the list is:

Circus
Equinoxe 2
Equinoxe 5
Exit
Oxygene 15
Oxygene 17
Oxygene 2
Stardust
Switched on Leon
Coachella Opening
Souvenir of China
Zoolookologie.

That list was in amazon.de description of the box set yesterday but now it's removed.

All the preorders of the will receive inmediately the track "Hypnose" as a digital download. In fact it's available right now in amazon.jp.

The best explanation would be what he said in a recent interview - he likes the idea of creating songs that are just for live shows. We're lucky to get Herbalizer and Coachella Opening.

That's a realistic explanation, but I'll always hope for a studio recording. Or at least an official live release... but that's another problem :D

Yeah, 22.90 € (the cheapest I could pre-order the standard CD edition for right now) is a bit too much for just Coachella Opening and Herbalizer.

(Still assuming that the other tracks will be edits of the Dadwater remasters, along with new Dadwater remasters of AOR Blue et al)

(And that the MFS Demo will be Diva or Rendez-Vous 5 or something)

ChoccyUK - Fri Jun 22, 2018 5:11 pm

Yes shame about Webspinner.

The vinyl "book" word is a bit miss leading. No book with it I assume.

The cheapest seller is jpc.de still. The box set is 62 euros (including shipping costs)

Jean-Michel Jarre celebrates 50th anniversary

Source: http://radioinfinity.ch/j...iges-jubilaeum/

Jote - Mon Jun 25, 2018 6:34 pm

Some new information from SME, thanks to Lee Sainsbury

Box set - limited to 4000 copies globally, numbered

Vinyl edition - limited to 3500 copies (more might be possibly pressed depending on how the initial batch goes)

Final designs of all editions coming this Wednesday

No "live" versions (i.e. even Herbalizer and Coachella Opening are studio versions)

No tracks were lifted from existing Sony masters; all material was prepared by JMJ and his team, some had to be obviously reedited to fit the compilation, also this can possibly indicate that some tracks are reworked (quote: "Some of the tracks had to be altered to make them fit the product. Different versions were used on some of the tracks also. ")

shadow - Tue Jun 26, 2018 3:30 pm

Why make it limited? I understand printing it endlessly isn't a real possibility, but oply 3500/4000 worldwide? Yeah I hate that stuff...

Also I still can't order it in The Netherlands either.

This would've been nice, were it not that all remasters in the past two decades have been largely straight up garbage...

Edit: Seems Sounds have it up now. €55 for the boxset and €25 for both the normal and deluxe edition. They do not have the vinyl up.

Some information from Sony Music on this: Boxset and vinyl edition will indeed be limited.
Both contain a download code or card for 12 Songs in 5.1 PLUS the full Album as HQ WAV-file download. "We are Vinyl" is simply the provider who handles this for Sony.
Also I was told that Jean Michel has "freshly retouched" some of the tracks (which mainly means he has shortened them. It's still not clear if the music will sound any different).

Thanks for the inside scoops, Jote and Oxygene.

... still not convinced enough to spend 22 euros (at least) for Coachella Opening + Herbalizer only, though. ;) Here's hoping for more samples soon.

Jote - Wed Jun 27, 2018 9:17 am

Lee has also confirmed that the WAV download will be available with the Box-set edition (not just vinyl edition). Whether this is a blatant CD master (likely), a vinyl master (yes please) or "depends on edition" (doubt it) remains to be seen. Heard.

The Digipack booklet is 24 pages, jewelcase - 12 pages.

In addition:

Quote:
freshly retouched versions of:

“Oxygene 2″ [5:26 vs. 7:46]
“Oxygene 8” [5:25 vs. 3:54]
“Oxygene 20 [5:31 vs. 7:59]
“Equinoxe 4” [5:32 vs. 7:04]
“Equinoxe 7” [3:36 vs. 7:48]
“Ethnicolor” [3:31 vs. 11:49]
“Last Rendez-vous” [4:09 vs. 6:03]
“Revolutions” [3:24 vs. 4:55]
“Waiting For Costeau” [3:01 vs. 46:45]
“Chronology 1” [3:54 vs. 11:01]
“Bells” [2:06 vs. 3:53]


Whether these are just length edits to fit the album remains to be seen. We can be pretty much certain that Oxygene 8 is more than just length edit, as it was actually made longer (the only one from this list though).

My speculations:

* Chrono 1 is its "second part"
* Equinoxe 4 is not the recent tour version given the track length (tour version is shorter)
* Oxygene 20 does not include the organ intro and "Oxygene VI sous la pluie"
* Revolutions does not include the intro
* Equinoxe 7 is the tour version
* Ethnicolor - Images-like edit

And I guess that's that - no new Zoolookologie.

Yeah, a lot of missed opportunities in here.

Especially compared to the (sole remaining original member of) Kraftwerk, who basically remade their back catalogue, toured it for a few years and finally released the remakes last year. And it was pretty good, too. In fact, even Vangelis' Delectus box (even if it was quite lacking in the rarities derpartment) was done with care and actual production qualities.

Instead, JMJ gets the "Album Classics" with typos and missing tracks on the back cover, the Oxygene Trilogy "whipped-up-in-3-minutes" box with the scratchy records etc. :P

The physical set may have been high quality, the actual remasters were for half of them a mess. Audio drops in multiple records, terrible added reverb, tracks were cut short and more. And this was throughout the entire package. I could've forgiven one disc, perhaps two, but this set really wasn't great at all.

The cassettes are there as a gimmick. Just like all those vinyls sold today.

Gimmick/nostalgia/retro/souvenir - it's fitting, it's a "50th anniversary box".

"5.1 mixes on DVDs" are not a proper substitute to achieve this effect (and justify the price).

Oh! I remember the elsew.com review being rather positive for the boxset. Oh well.

Also, only now did I notice that the MFS Demo is on the "experimental" disc, so maybe there's a chance that instead of being a Diva demo, it's actually Part 2 (or the one right before the whatever-part-of-MFS-was-reused-in-Diva).

(Still would prefer Part 1, but eh)

Ah, yes.

And yes, it's also a shame that the PlanetJarre compilation album isn't accompanied by a "best of the concerts" type thing that could, at the very least, have one track per concert (not necessarily from every concert), preferably rare or newly edited ones (say, Rendez-Vous 4 from PLD or Oxygene 7 from the 1997 tour or the Vizitors overture or something). But yeah, even that would have been an actual surprise. :P

And we are apparently getting the second one, unfortunately (Shazaming various parts of MfS revealed this). Not sure why, it's an odd decision, as the first one (Overture) is *THE* MfS that the majority recognize and love. Maybe JMJ's keeping the first one for another occasion. Maybe when he retires at least.

A DVD's cost is literally pennies however. Sure mastering comes to it, but if they already have the 5.1 mixes, that takes the biggest part of the cost already out of it. And the cassettes are worthless in the year 2018 unlike vinyl. One is actually back in full force for various reasons, the other is not. I get the nostalgia for it, but the lack of a DVD and instead the compact cassettes that no one will actually use. It's just feels like a terrible waste of money. But whatever...

Seems like they already updated the Shazam database for this release if this is the case. I had hope for the Overture, I bloody love that tune!

Just tried it myself, I can confirm it's the opening of the second track that's recognized:

Hi,

Taking a look on the tracklist in qobuz, I've found something interesting:

The track "Rendez-Vous II (part 4)" appears as copyrighted in 1987 (other tracks from "Rendez-Vous" album are dated in 1986). ¿the Houston single version, perhaps?

"Revolutions" is dated in 1988. ¿the original flute version instead the orchestral one from 1990?

It was, there's enough evidence of that. But chances are that all tracks were recorded seperately (with a different mix) before being finalised for the final master. Chances are that it's that recording, but we'll know for sure in a few months.

According to SME there are no live versions on the compilation. Could be simply a mistake. Track time is 2:18 - consistent with the studio version.

Jote - Sun Jul 01, 2018 8:59 pm

One more thing peculiar about that "Rendez-Vous II (part 4)" track. It is also listed as "Rendez-Vous II (Laser Harp)". And the length seems to confirm that it is indeed the laser harp part, but then it is named incorrectly, as this part is actually part 3.
Finaero - Sun Jul 01, 2018 9:21 pm

I never liked those official "Ethnicolor I Part 2" or "Rendez-Vous II Part 3" divisions... but I guess they were still better than some of the bootleg tracklistings - for example there was one of PLD where the ping pong ball sounds from the beginning of Souvenir of China were marked as "Magnetic Fields 1" (thanks to the CiC album tracklisting) and the intro to Magnetic Fields 2 (with the Laurie Anderson vocals in the VHS version) marked as "Diva" etc.

Anyhow, as soon as some samples of those "retouched" tracks become available, thus letting me know if they're remakes or just "the old tracks except with some new VCS 3 effects put in", I'll probably pre-order the regular CD edition (cheapest seems to go for ~23 € 'round here). Can't say the promotion for this set has even been that extant yet.

Well, the first major f***up that for some reason CANNOT be ever corrected was back in 1982 with the infamous "Magnetic Fields I" on CiC.

Finaero - Fri Jul 06, 2018 10:35 am

Oh yeah. On my personal vinyl rip of CiC I didn't separate it as its own track, and I've substituted it with the actual "for-a-brief-moment the official China Concerts 2008 DVD" version of the track for my MP3 version of CiC (which is otherwise comprised of the 1991 CD versions).

(Come to think of it, if JMJ/Sony really wanted to make things interesting they could just do the same thing and put the VHS version of MF1 on the album instead. But it will never happen.)

Also, kind of a shame that the next "Planet Jarre" track uploaded on YouTube was the same-ol' version of Souvenir of China - was hoping for one of the "retouched tracks". :\

A shame that the 2008 near-official version of Rendez-Vous Houston never got as far as the CiC one (AFAIK there were no shipped copies), who knows what kind of an alternate version it could have been.

At any rate, here's hoping for the next #PlanetJarre teaser to be one of the "retouched" tracks.

I.e. "with a fadeout to fit the desired shorter length"?

Compared to the 1982 version
- it's shorter (verse repetitions are missing and parts of the chorus, but they were traded for the full solo, so... who cares)
- it has an additional crash cymbal here and there
- one of the bass leads is missing (during the solo part)
- there seems to be an additional "pluck" sequence, very quiet and similar to the MF2 single version

So great to finally have a studio version of the full solo from 1982.

And yeah, it's odd that it was not on that "freshly retouched" list. That gives us two options, either

1. the list was just missing this one track (MF2) and is otherwise complete

or

2. the list was just a summary of tracks that had their length altered compared to the album version (note that this new MF2 length is more or less the same as the 1981 MF album version) and there are lots of other gems on that compilation

This'd be cool (even though SoC was just the same ol' 1982 version), considering that the reported length of Zoolookologie on this album is 3:42 (or 3:43) which just happens to be (just about) the length of its Coachella version.

... and sadly, the length of the 1984 (85?) remix version, so I guess the first scenario might be more likely after all. ;)

shadow - Fri Jul 20, 2018 2:57 pm

Oeh, that Magnetic Fields 2 version! This makes me very happy! Curious if some of the other tracks are also a different mix than we thought.

Remastering is still garbage, but at least not nearly as bass heavy as the 2011 remasters. So that's some good news regarding the sound quality. Doubting if I should take the chance with the vinyl release for better audio levels or not.

Thanks for the links, I'll finally pre-order this one (the cheapest 2CD jewelcase edition).

I'm not sure, but I think that Last Rendez-Vous has a new saxophone part in it. Or it's a different mix of the AERO version.

shadow - Fri Jul 20, 2018 7:53 pm

What's actually the difference between the normal edition and the special edition? They're both two disc and seem to feature the exact same content. So surely I'm missing some info.

Those Electronica remixes of the older tracks are quite nice. I think only Oxygene 8 was played in Amsterdam two years ago, so it's nice to hear the others also in good quality.

Finaero - Fri Jul 20, 2018 8:43 pm

AFAIK, the CDs are the same, but the jewel case edition has a 12-page booklet and the digipak edition has a 24-page one.

It's no new, it was played 'live' back in (I believe) 2006, the Live Printemps de Bourges 2002

Likely because he wants to maintain the status of MFS: "one unique copy ever". That's why we're not likely to see anything else. That's why I'm disappointed we got the second track instead of the first one.

Finaero - Tue Jul 24, 2018 7:05 am

Then again, even though it's an "open secret" that even if the MFS masterplates et al were destroyed (live at the auction, even), other copies and audio survives (Diva, Rendez-Vous 5 pt. 2, this new MFS Demo sounds just about identical to the one on the album and "Ethnicolor II" clearly uses some of the MFS "supermarket recordings")....

.... there's still a semi-chance that of all the tracks that might have been fully destroyed at the auction, the first one was it. ;P

Imho track 1 and 2 are the most unique ones on MfS. The rest sounds (more or less) like demo parts to following albums Zoolook and Rendez-Vous.
MfS was basically a gesture against the CD marketing. Well nowadays there are other formats, so... :wink:

MFS was a gesture against the recording industry in general - the way they were marketing music “like toothpaste, washing machines and fridges”. As CD’s we’re in their infancy then, IMO I’d say the format was irrelevant then, though certainly not now. I would pay a high premium to have this album in high quality. It is an extraordinary, adventurous and diverse album with a nod to the past and an eye to the future.

Jean-Michel Jarre: "We were dreamers"

He celebrated his 70th birthday at the end of August and will soon release a new album dedicated to artificial intelligence. But for the first time, the French pioneer of electronic music celebrates half a century of his unique work on the compilation "Planet Jarre - 50 Years of Music".

When we call Jean-Michel Jarre, he is in his hotel room in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. An unusual place? For everyone else, for Jarre, the journey is routine. "As a special ambassador for UNESCO, I am specifically involved in a foundation for the education of youth," he explains. And he is impressed. "The entire country is currently changing at a fast pace. I think that's wonderful. This reminds me of the leaps in development of Tokyo in the 1980s or Shanghai at the beginning of this millennium. Everything moves at a mega-speed into the 21st century.

Via SAT.1 Regional

Being a musician for 50 years in business is anything but ordinary. And even if it is a composer of purely instrumental, electronic sounds, it is all the more remarkable. The Frenchman Jean-Michel Jarre celebrates his 50th anniversary in business this year with a retrospective called "Planet Jarre". On Wednesday evening he personally presented these with a specially designed show in the Sternensaal of the Planetarium Hamburg.

Finaero - Fri Sep 14, 2018 6:28 am

Quick first impressions: The Spotify version also has the Electronica Tour version of RV4, so that's good.

(Man, it really makes me wish the Houston-Lyon/PLD style solo was still around)


A shame that aside from the retouched tracks, the untouched ones just have cheap fade-ins and fade-outs going on in them.

So yeah, still hoping that the simplest CD edition will also have the retouched tracks (instead of RV4 being the standard album version and whatnot), since that's really enough for me for this one. :p

(Well, for me it's really worth for the new version Zoolookologie - considering it's one of my favorite JMJ tracks and this one's a far better version than the 2004 one... possibly overall even beyond the PLD version ;) )

RemarkableRadio - Fri Sep 14, 2018 7:32 am

I listened to the whole album this morning.
I have to say that I fail to see the point of the mish-mash of tracks that are sometimes faded out half way. I also don't really get the point of these 4 collections.
Besides some different versions (I prefer the original Zoolookologie a hundred times over this version), there is not much news.
Except for the 2-3 tracks, we have all of them already either on the original album or on one of the many compilations that are pushed down our throats. Why not release new tracks on an EP or just as separate singles and stop re-releasing the same tracks over and over again.

Now, that new Equinoxe album that is coming out, THAT is exciting.
This, not so much.

Jote - Fri Sep 14, 2018 2:59 pm

Quick report on the downloads provided with vinyl/deluxe boxes: the download is a 3.3GB zip file. Contains 48kHz/24bit WAVs of the album (sadly they appear to be as loud as the CD) and 5.1 tracks in MP4 (Dolby Digital Plus) format. I'm yet to see how elaborate is the 5.1 mix. Oxygene 15, Oxygene 17, Circus, Switch on Leon seem to be (music-wise) the regular versions.
Finaero - Fri Sep 14, 2018 3:04 pm

Actually got my copy of the CD today (first time in years - possibly ever - when I've pre-ordered something and actually received it on the release date).

I've got to say, cutting down Oxygene 20 could have left space for some other track in its place (well, technically cutting down Oxygene 1 would do the same, but... no, just no ;) )... and yeah, Last Rendez-Vous is the AERO version (with the saxophone solo still sounding weird due to the AERO "5.1" effects).

So... who wants to make an excursion to JMJ's archives to find a proper quality version of Music for Supermarkets Overture? ;)

Interesting that the Supermarkets demo is copyright 2018 according the CD booklet, and not 1983. Does that mean it is actually a new recording, or perhaps, from an UPCOMING new 2018 recording? Are we going to get another surprise album release, much like 'Radiofonie' appeared after the surprise of Oxygene 3 ?

Well, I can dream can't I?

Also - on a separate note - I notice that Oxygene 7-13 has been re-released on CD - with the original artwork. I thought it was called Oxygene 2 now, and had new (in my opinion, better) artwork to match Oxygene and Oxygene 3 ?

Dr_Jones - Sun Sep 16, 2018 2:20 pm

Aor Bleu is also credited as 2018. I don't think it has any significance.

Somewhat odd though, for someone new to Jarre browsing the albums - Oxygene, Oxygene 3 and Oxygene 7-13. They might wonder what happened to the rest of the albums - Oxygene 2, and Oxygenes 4 to 6.

Oxygene 1, 2 and 3 makes far more sense - and, as I recall, was Jarre's original intended titles.

Finaero - Sun Sep 16, 2018 9:24 pm

Making sense is not a part of Jarre's current contract with Sony. ;)

For example, the moment we thought Sony had done something right (not messing up any part of the covers for the Sept 2018 re-releases), Adam was the first to notice that no, quality control at Sony just isn't a part of the deal.

(Sadly!)

Velodynamic - Sun Sep 16, 2018 11:35 pm

I think the mistake was made already back in 1997. I've always thought of Oxygene 7-13 as a pretty silly title of a sequel album. They maybe thought that the book of Oxygene was closed by then. But now with the idea of an Oxygene trilogy the whole mess is a fact.
Not to mention the "New Master Recording" :wink:

Jote - Mon Sep 17, 2018 12:15 pm

It should've been permanently renamed. To avoid confusion with "Oxygene part 2" it would be called "Oxygene vol. 2" (the original name of "Oxygene 7-13" in 1996 was "Oxygene 2" but that was supposedly changed in order to avoid said confusion). "Oxygene 3" album would be then called "Oxygene vol. 3". Simple as that. But we digress.

And the back cover will have useful info such as "(c)1784 Jean-Michel Vanwerk"

Herr Dunkel - Mon Sep 17, 2018 7:10 pm

I remember a TV show back in 1997 when JMJ explained the title (instead of the more obvious Oxygène 2). Beside indicating the opening and ending tracks, numbers 7 and 13 have opposite "meanings", 7 being positive (good luck) and 13 being negative (bad luck). Of course it depends on your cultural background and whether you are superstitious, but you get the idea. Jarre thought it was funny to juxtapose those two "opposite" numbers.

Listening to the 5.1 tracks now. I've downsized the files to a working DVD which I can play in my 5.1 set.
Switched on Leon works very well in 5.1.
Equinoxe 2 too. Coachella Opening sounds very wide, has that circling sequencer, that goes around during the song. The effects in Zoolookologie comes from every direction, quite funny.
Equinoxe 5 is weird, but that might be my setup.

That's not quite correct - because the copyright protection is in most countries granted automatically 50 or 70 years (after the author's death) from publication: https://en.Wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries%27_copyright_lengths .

'Music for Supermarkets' was published in 1983 and the corresponding demo now in 2018.

In the last 5 years there were some short (few days/weeks) releases (iTunes, YouTube, Streaming) of yet unpublished early 1960's recordings from The Beatles or The Rolling Stones to secure only the copyright (otherwise the recording would pass into the public domain).

It also depends on the record deal. Some deals done allowed for the master tapes to revert to the artists ownership after 35 years - assuming the artist is on a different label by then.

That worked rather well.

Thanks, I'll try it later in the day! Also, did they really still not fix the random click in First Rendez-Vous at around 2:12? It's been present since the original release...

For anyone interested in the DR values, here you go for the CD and download. Neither of these include the 5.1 mixes, I need to convert those seperately in order to be able to rate them since Foobar 2000 doesn't play ball with the video files unlike normally. I'm most interested if the vinyl is better. Because I want, no, I NEED, that Zoolookologie remix in good fidelity!

Anyone managed to get those 5.1 files converted to FLAC? No matter what I try, the files just will not convert properly for whatever reason.

Somewhere I suspect Coachella Opening was called different, probably something starting with an S.

CD-text tells the title Coachella Valley.

Maybe this will lead to new Equinoxe "album rips" where Equinoxe 4 fades out, moving onto the storm effects of EQ5, segueing to Chronologie 1, which would then continue to Equinoxe 6 as per usual. :P

I understood one or two hours ago Lee Sainsbury will get in touch with the Jarre team to fix this.

Exactly!

Alas, it seems that they fixed the mistake already. ;)

(Took long enough from them, but that's Sonymarketing for you)

Seriously how the hell does Sony keep messing this up continuously? Ever since they started releasing it, there has not been a new (re)release without a problem.
Oxygene - Mon Oct 15, 2018 10:39 am

Maybe it's not Sony to blame...
shadow - Mon Oct 15, 2018 2:50 pm

Well someone has to be responsible, and I doubt Jarre is the one who's fine with all the issues.

THIS TUESDAY, NOSTALGIE CELEBRATES 50 YEARS OF MUSIC WITH JEAN-MICHEL JARRE

Already half a century that the artist hypnotizes the electronic scene

When in 1976 Jean-Michel Jarre, composer, artist, author, sound landscape and French producer, launched his iconic progressive album "Oxygene", he opened a new chapter in the history of music.

On September 14, Jean-Michel Jarre, a pioneer of electronic music, released "Planet Jarre", an album celebrating his 50-year career.

On this occasion, Nostalgie devotes a special show on Tuesday, November 6 between 12h and 13h.

"Planet Jarre" brings together 41 tracks , including two new titles.

The vinyl and the ultimate box come with a download card to enter the world of Jean-Michel Jarre in a 5.1 format.

Always in search of the best possible sound and fascinated by technology, Jean-Michel Jarre mastered some songs in a 5.1 format for a unique listening experience.

Do not miss his visit to Nostalgie this Tuesday between 12h and 13h!

Do you really have to buy the box set or vinyl edition to get access to the wav 5.1 files?
Is there any way around this? :?

Sent Pm i got the 5.1 files

shadow - Mon Nov 26, 2018 8:28 am

Officially, yes it's the only option. Unofficially, well...
Velodynamic - Wed Nov 28, 2018 4:08 am

Ok, so Switch On Leon and the new version of Zoolookologie are really awesome in 5.1 and the rest are more or less pointless. :P
In comparison Aero and Oxygene 5.1 from 2007 were much cooler, not to mention i.e. M. Oldfield's 5.1 mixes. :)

shadow - Wed Nov 28, 2018 5:23 pm

Jarre promising all future releases being in 5.1 and stopping after Teo and Tea stings. Oxygene 3 and Equinoxe Infinity would've been awesome. I do understand why Electronica wasn't in surround sound, but it would've still been great if he retroactively did so like with Planet Jarrem, but a bunch more tracks.
