"As already told before, not all the tapes were preserved well enough to be used for remastering. This also was a disappointment for us because we were planning to release more items.
Second reason is that we canít decide on our own which recordings will be remastered. We only received permission and tapes from Deutsche Grammophon for several recordings, not the full repertoire. So unfortunately there is nothing more we can release.
I hope you understand the situation. Sorry to make you and probably more customers disappointed. On the other hand we should all be grateful that we were able to re-release 20 pieces of these valuable recordings from the past!"
I'M SO DISAPPOINTED!

A little bit better news! I sent message to Pentatone and they answered:

"The latest news is a little bit better: we requested the licence for appr 15 new items at Deutsche Grammophon. The bad news is that we still have no idea when and if we will get these licences. We are totally depending on their approval and canít make any predictions about the outcome.

That is why we for now only can say, please check our release planning regularly. As soon as we have the green light, the planning will be adjusted".

Thanks for your sleuthing, this is a useful post. While I'm sad, I'm happy with what we got. Anything else will be a bonus.

Either way, they really need to approach Sony and Warner now.

SONY and EMI (ANGEL to be exact), now owned by Warners released a combined few hundred SQ vinyl recordings in the early and late 70's and hopefully, Pentatone will attempt to license some of these wonderful recordings for SACD QUAD release.

And many of those EMI quads were great quality recordings in stereo, imagine they must be really great in quad.
