Now in a first for both band and 4AD, Doolittle is being released as a Pure Audio Blu-Ray which contains both the album in high definition (96 kHz / 24 bit) 5.1 surround sound - having been remixed by audio specialist Kevin Vanbergen (FX) from the original analogue multi-tracks - and a HD transfer of the original stereo mix by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab. The results are a revelation, separating out elements from the recordings that are buried in the stereo mix and adding space, depth and a clarity to the performances without diluting their energy and impact.
About Pure Audio Blu-ray:
The Pure Audio Blu-ray combines the Blu-ray format’s vast storage capacity and the bandwidth necessary for high resolution (up to 192 kHz/24Bit) in surround and stereo sound with the easy and straight-forward handling of a CD. They can be played on any Blu-ray player and can be operated either with or without a screen: by on-screen menu navigation or by screen-less navigation like an ordinary CD.
