Until I bought this I always skipped over the orchestrated bits. The high rez 5.1 mix makes all of this bliss.

I bought and today received the 2017 release of this record; a 50th anniversary edition. Two cd's and one dvd. The dvd contains a surround mix that I think is a huge improvement of the sacd 5.1. Also, this is the first time ever that the original 1967 mix has been presented on cd (and in surround). All earlier releases have been done from a 1972 remix, which actually leaves out a few things.
Strange, though, that the record company does a dvd-v instead of a blu-ray. Visuals are rather uninteresting photo shots and covers of original singles. Anyway, it can be found at very good prices from different European vendors.

Very Good News: They have finally found old tapes so that a surround mix of In Search of the Lost Chord can be released at last, November 2, at least in Europe. Whether it's 5.1 or 4.0 I'm not sure.
Bad news: Again it's a dvd. Audio or Video. Whatever, I thought that format was dead when it comes to HR discs.

Another fabulous re-release in mult-channel sound of an iconic recording. The lushness of the orchestration really blossoms when heard front all sides of a listening room. I loved this album as a teenager and still enjoy it after all these years. Highly recommended.

There is potential for a bit of confusion here.

The 2017 50th anniversary release of this album (Cat# 670 089-7) that some people are referencing is not a SACD and is not a reissue of the SACD version on this page. Rather it is a new CD's + DVD-V (Multi Channel) package, with a different mix.

There is not a separate page here for this 2017 issue of the title, but maybe there should be, given the multi channel component? Albeit that it is DVD-V rather than DVD-A and as the inclusion rules currently stand may not appear to directly qualify.
