James Guthrie interview Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Monday, 10 March 2003

Italian fanzine Hey You will be publishing an exclusive interview by our friend Chris Diemoz (author of the recent Italian book mentioned elsewhere on these pages) with James Guthrie, who answered 11 questions about Pink Floyd and the making of the new edition of Dark Side. Here's an extract for you:

Chris: Had you some fears in "putting your hands" on such a masterpiece?
James Guthrie: "Daunting" is a word that comes to mind! I think this is probably one of the most difficult 5.1 mixes. Not from a musical point of view, because the record really lends itself to 3-dimensional treatment. But from the point of view that everyone knows the original mix so well. It is indelibly printed on our minds. We've had 30 years to live with it, and some people don't want that image to be altered. Knowing that you are about to start work on something controversial can be unsettling..."

The rest will be in the next issue of Hey You fanzine.
