Ok, UW finally sold out

Seriously though, good for them but I think I'm not the only one who finds a "silent" Underworld concert rather preposterous.

Re: Barbara Barbara Pushing The Limits..
hmm... on that website - they state:

“And if you buy the high-resolution download from Bowers & Wilkins you receive an exclusive extra track"

But they don't actually list what the extra track is... or if you have to buy the 24 bit version, or their Apple Lossless version...

...or am I just dense?

Re: Barbara Barbara Pushing The Limits..
Is this an actual hi-res master or just their music being sold through B&W website in a lossless format?

Also I thought underworld sold out when they started making music for ads...

Re: Barbara Barbara Pushing The Limits..
thanks for the word of warning guys.

still hoping for Twenty Three Blue to turn up on some release... other than the Japanese import, or that expensive super deluxe edition...

There is a 24/96 version that is available through a number of sources, B&W being one of them. It's also on a few Japan retailers, and here:

https://tracks.technics.com/GB/releases/5299419

Also, I believe the vinyl version of the album comes with a download card, from which you can select the 24-bit version for download.

well to be fair, making music for ads was part of Underworld from the beginning, since they were basically part of Tomato, an ad agency (but also a creative outlet for non-commercial work by various artists). Being part of that actually was one of the reasons they could continue to make the music they wanted as Underworld, because it gave them a financial security they otherwise would have had to get from a big label.
So I think that's different from playing commissioned gigs that are really just marketing events for corporations as opposed to an artistic endeavour for people who love the music.

You believe correctly. I purchased the vinyl from Amazon and was surprised when a nice little card slipped out with a link to download the 24 or 16 bit flac from B&W.

This version did NOT include Twenty Three Blue though...

I will have to say this much when it comes to 24 bit - I have listened to Barbara Barbara now in iTunes Plus, Apple Lossless 16 bit and Apple Lossless 24 bit. I don't have expensive speakers, just some Bose desktop speakers and also some Bose over ear headphones. I only notice minimal difference between the iTunes Plus and 16 bit lossless, but when I listened to the 24 bit lossless I was blown away at the detail. Unfortunately I can only play 24 bit from my computer with my current setup and devices, but it's totally worth it if you can spare the extra quid for it.

They did release Dubno in 24 bit. Sounds amazing too. Just wish they would have released STITI in 24 bit. It's still by far my favourite UW release.
