The sound engineer David Perreau, posted on Facebook a photo in studio (Bougival?), Informing the remastering of the album Zoolook ....

The Jarre had said that their new album and their remastered back catalog would be released by Sony Music, is now expected.

You got a link to the account? Can't seem to find it...

I'd like to kindly ask him not to screw up these remasters like the entire previous bunch of albums were messed up pieces of garbage, and that's not counting his latest Jarre related fuck up called Singles and Rarities...

Very promising notice. :)
Mr shadow stresses a very important point. The devil is in the details. Quality! Not quantity. :wink:

I haven't friended him, so I can't see much of his posts.

I hope that's why Jarre asked how the fans liked the mastering of E&R…

There is some hope for this not to occur a re-release but bonuses… #Dream :hypocrit:

Oh, I seem to have missed the whole "Jarre's back at Sony" thing. Well, remember what happened the last time... >.<

Still, here's hoping there will be something better to wait for than what happened with the new 2013 Vangelis remasters. Still not expecting anything truly groundbreaking, but eh, time will tell.

Oh please don't tell me those are bad, I've been planning on getting them all for Christmas! The 2006 remastering of Chariots of Fire and the 2007 (and '13) remastering of Blade Runner are amazing! Didn't think Vangelis would let a bad mastering through when he'd be involved! :(

worse, he pulled a George Lucas, altering the original content. Elsew.com has a review

Reading it right now:

I don't neccesary mind the changes that much (there's always the vinyl records which are mastered excellent), it is a bit of a downer that the original masters haven't just been re-released in higher quality (I think I have a general idea of what it will sound like now due to his modern work). But oh well, I was almost afraid that the Loudness War had taken over, so it's not that bad I guess...

Edit: Direct and Page of Life are completely uneffected minus some volume correction and equalization? Well good, those were the two I wanted the most anyway! :P

I've registered to "Yakuda" as suggested in the interview, we'll see what goes ahead…

So he's the one responsible for remastering the 2011 Rarities release?

Um.

Posted:     [ !!! ]

Yes and that put a big dark grim over my current expectations of his upcoming fucku... Ehmm... I mean remasters...

At least someone else - except Jarre - also mentioned the new album.
It has more credibility. Quoting the Spanish forum...

These screens promise much hope, still approaching this with extreme caution...

Just crossing fingers they aren't dist-roying those old goodies once more. :?

Fingers crossed, indeed. I must say that if these new remasters won't contain anything interesting in them... well, that just might be the last straw for me. It's been 10-11 years when I first thought how neat it would be to have some old JMJ gigs on DVD but.. well, you all know what has happened in all this time.

I've been listening to the Cities in Concert version of Rendez-Vous 2 a lot lately and ... that really contains some of the best mixing in any JMJ work so far - the track sounds truly amazing and very orchestral in that album.

Aside from the fake extra audience noises, of course.

I really hope that there will be something new or at least interesting to gain from these remasters, but... :\

...but we just can not even hope ; JM seems to be too old to anything.

I think the Cities cd is poorly mixed (along with Hong Kong Live) I found the Cities In Concert CD's tempo had been sloooowed down compared to En Concert Houston/Lyon, the overall mix sounds muddy, rendezvous 4 is has been mullered, some of the "extended tracks" are actually remixes and not what was played in concert.

Nah.. think I'll stick to the my radio broadcast of the Lyon show!

No contest there, that one's a genuine gem.

(Even with the intrusive radio jingle at the beginning of Equinoxe 7 and RV4 <.<)

They where so intrusive, I knocked up my own version of the "Cities in Concert CD". Using recording from the Houston & Lyon radio broadcasts, mixing it together with extracts taken from the official videos, gave the sound quality a bit of enhancing too. Chose to use Houston's Equinoxe 7 rather than Lyon (you can hear Christine Durand, Soprano, towards the end) and Rendezvous 4 just kicks ass. Where the radio broadcast jingles cut-up the intro of the tracks, i mixed the intro's from video, then blend in the radio broadcast. Still listen to now.

Yes, but only the first three live and studio albums are mentionned, I wonder why… :?
