As previously reported, “Essentials & Rarities” will be for sale (actually only under reservation) as digital download from some Music Stores in Internet… but this will include only the “Rarities” volume..
Some French Stores will also offer the “Studio Master” version of the album. According our info coming from DISQUES DEYFUS, those Studio Masters consists in 24bit Wav files which gives us the complete feel of the original CD. It should also be noted that the tracks included in “Essentials &Rarities” comes directly from the original Master tapes and were mastered by PATRICK PELAMOURGUES in HD.
But “Rarities” will not be the only the first album released in Studio Master quality… “Equinoxe” and “Oxygene” versions are also expected very soon in this format.
Qobuz.com is the only french website at the moment with a Studio Master option of “Rarities”, but other french websites are going to join this elected club in the next weeks.
FAIRLIGHT JARRE would like to thank BENJAMIN GUYOT, from DISQUES DREYFUS, for his kindness and support
