Abbey Road 1/2 speed mastered vinyl

Steve has tweeted that, later this year, GTP and Tin Drum will be released on Abbey Road half-speed mastered vinyl. Tracks are the same as the orginals. There is a good explanation of the process in the link below.

He was also asked whether there might be blu-ray / 5.1 remixes, but responded that Virgin hadn't looked after the multitrack masters and that they'd been destroyed, so there's no going back to source to do that.

David and Steve have posted on twitter about pre-orders for these being available.

David's link is here:

I also found them available on the excellent Norman Records in the UK:

As Steve has tweeted, these two re-releases are currently the number 2 and 3 selling records on the UK vinyl chart!
