Whitesnake - The Purple Tour Live

Headbangers!  In case you missed it, Whitesnake has released CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray combination sets of The Purple Tour Live.  They've also released it as a double LP.  This was a fun one to work on, as we were unexpectedly brought on to the team at the last minute to help push it over the finish line.  Producer/Engineer Mike "Mac" McIntyre is an absolute gem to work with, and the record itself just rocks (as it should). 

It is available at Amazon Music.

Hotel California Emerges Again on 5.1 Blu-ray

2017 concluded with yet another spectacular reissue in the form of Hotel California in 5.1 Blu-ray.  While previously released as a DVD-Audio in 2001 (and for sale on eBay for $139 today - WTH?), this new 40th anniversary edition is available as a 2-CD + Blu-ray set, and includes previously unreleased live recordings (CD-side only).

After 40 years, this record - and especially Elliot Scheiner's exceptional surround remix - is worth another listen.
