SonyBMG are set to re-release the award-winning Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds in June. The highly anticipated classic album will now be available in two formats, the original double album and a definitive 7-disc collector’s edition package which are both re-issued on double hybrid SA-CD with 5.1 surround sound and stereo re-mastered mixes.
This set sounds (looks?) amazing, featuring a completely remastered version of the musical on 2 SACD’s (luckily my DVD player can play SACD) and 5 more discs of extras (including a DVD with making of..type stuff) and a fancy booklet. I haven’t listened to War of the Worlds for a while, time to set aside a couple of hours in June!
