DTS (Digital Theater Systems, Inc.) entertainment label, DTS Entertainment (DTSE,) announces a January 25 street date for The Blasters Live: Going Home, the surround record of the final show of the group's long-awaited reunion tour.
Hailing from Downey, California, The Blasters combine rockabilly, blues, country, cajun, rock'n'roll, and even jazz into a vibrant explosion of great roots music. Live: Going Home features the original line-up of American roots rock legends, including Phil Alvin, Dave Alvin, Bill Bateman, John Bazz and Gene Taylor. On that hot August night in 2003, they were also joined by special guests Billy Boy Arnold, Sonny Burgess and members of The Calvanes and the Medallions. This special mix in 5.1-channel DTS Digital Surround features favorites performed live for the last time, including "American Music," "Border Radio" and "Marie Marie."
This surround music disc was mixed by the renowned engineer Mark Linnett, who was previously responsible for the Beach Boys classic Pet Sounds surround disc, as well as stereo albums by Jimi Hendrix, Average White Band, as well as several of Dave Alvin's solo albums including the Grammy-winning Public Domain. Most recently, he was nominated for a Best Engineering Grammy for his work on Brian Wilson Presents Smile.
The Live: Going Home DVD includes extra features such as:
* Five bonus tracks
* On-screen photo gallery
"For those that love live music, this album really delivers. The surround mixes put you right there in the audience on the night, listening to a great live rock & roll band at their peak," said Jeff Skillen, Vice President, Pro Audio and Technology Evangelism at DTS.
