Robert Reed and Friends - Sanctuary Live at Newbury

Sanctuary Live at Newbury is the latest release from Robert Reed & Friends presented on Blu-ray and CD. Although the concert was shot in 4K, it is presented on region-free Blu-ray in HD with a 5.1 DTS surround mix. Fans purchasing directly from his store will receive a Robert Reed signed postcard while supplies last.

Robert Reed comments “I’m really excited to finally be releasing a Blu-ray concert. I’m really proud of all the DVDs that I’ve released over the years, but the clarity of Blu-ray takes the visual experience to a whole new level. I’m fortunate to have an amazing group of talented people at my disposal, both musically and cinematographically, and they all came together perfectly at the Arlington Arts Centre last May to ensure a fabulous product was captured for prosperity. I tried to choose a perfect balance from not just the Sanctuary and Ringmaster albums but also from some of the previously released EPs like Willow’s Song and Doctor Who, the latter of which was a lot of fun with the theatrics of both Les Penning and Tom Newman.”

For those not familiar with Robert Reed, he is the leader of the progressive rock band Magenta and has released a series of immersive albums called Sanctuary that pay homage to Mike Oldfield. Reed has also been a member of several other groups and his latest double album Ringmaster continues to elevate his creative and compositional skills.

High resolution immersionists have continued to be thrilled with his enveloping mixes, and with so many elements as part of each tune, the spatial separation lends itself very well to the surround sound format.

Scheduled for release May 3, 2024.
