New 5.1 goodness

The other night the One Big Loud Guy came by with disc five of the Beatles Anthology. The documentary has a few segments where a full song is allowed to play with some video for you to watch. The video is either footage of the band recording, playing live or doing Beatle things if no live footage or studio footage is available. The music tracks are remixed in 5.1. You have never heard I am the Walrus until you have heard it in 5.1 goodness. It's like hearing the song for the first time again.

What I don't understand is why the Beatles catalogue has not been released on DVD audio. I'd buy that shit. If Don Henley's End of Innocence can be given 5.1 treatment why not then the Beatles? How about some Hendrix? Some Tom Waits? Shit, anything except the dang Eagles.

By the way I did get a chance to listen to the Flaming Lips 5.1 mix of Yoshimi and it was incredible.
