Protect Preserve Enhance - 200 Motels
I hope the ZFT can get heir hands on the original masters or produce some related project from
existing vault material. As I have stated in recent topics the overall sonics on all released formats is very thin.
I trust that modern HD Digital resolution enables engineers to carefully dissect HD Audio Nuendo Masters
that had been transferred from any given original analogue masters with the finest
engineering production tools for enhancement of original source limitations.

As with any project that FZ applied his engineering and production skills it is important to keep the artists intent.
While each track of the source can be enhanced with modern digital tools sets this does not definitively require
extreme deviation from the composers directives and documented work. I'd like to see DZ engineer the mothers material
and the ZFT possibly get some modern classical engineering guru for the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra material.

I agree, 200 Motels has some serious audio issues, which I always assumed had to do with the material being essentially owned by (is it United Artists? I can't remember) and not FZ. I would love to see the film and album remastered.

agreed. i'd like the album to have the complete groupie opera and more songs intended to be in the movie. too bad they recorded over all the extra footage, so there's no way deleted or extended scenes can be added to the dvd...

maybe if they released it along with The True Story of 200 Motels.

I know JPF. But that can be fixed no? I mean this is the 21st century and everything. I'd be willin', and i'm sure there are many more of us out there, to pay good dough for this piece of nostalgia for the old folks.

No need to add mega bonuses....just get the EM to play the original score..... :mrgreen:

No problem....right??
