I don't have the original albums, so I'm getting them all on physical format as they are getting the 5.1 releases. Hopefully we'll get another one soon (Black Sea was released last year).

I know a lot of fans are clamoring for English Settlement, which hasn't been done due to the master tapes not being found yet, but that record sounds so good that I cannot imagine it being improved.  The same applies to Black Sea, to be honest.

The original Oranges and Lemons had the same issue as Skylarking (not much bottom end, very thin-sounding), so I am anxious to also get that one and hear the improvements. 

Apple Venus in 5.1 would be pretty sweet.  River of Orchids in surround sound would be most awesome.

bump.

anyone ever heard Colin Moulding's band TC&I? I wasn't aware of it, but some of this sounds very much where XTC left off.

also Colin among some other prog-names appeared on Days Between Stations last album.

I heard tidbits of TC&I and it sounded okay, but my interest level was pretty low.  Now, if you tell me that Andy Partridge has something cooking, then I will perk up.
