This summer, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release three programs as Standard Definition Blu-rays: SCORPIONS' Moment Of Glory, ROLLING STONES' Stones in Exile and PINK FLOYD's Classic Albums – The Making Of Dark Side Of The Moon. Originally released on standard definition DVDs, these films are upscaled versions of the original material, with uncompressed stereo and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound.
The Scorpions' Moment Of Glory, will be released July 30. Originally released in 2001, captures the Scorpions backed by the world famous Berliner Philharmoniker Orchestra. The Blu-ray includes not only this 2000 concert, which was part of Berlin’s millennium celebrations, but bonus band interviews and director’s cuts of 'Hurricane 2000', 'Moment Of Glory' and 'Here In My Heart'.
The second two releases, from the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd, will be released August 27. Stones In Exile, originally released in 2010, chronicles the incredible story behind the Stones’ monumental Exile On Main Street album. Recounted in the band’s own words, this film explores the spring of 1971, when the Stones fled the UK as tax exiles, settled into Keith Richards’ French villa Nellcôte in Villefranche-sur-Mer, and proceeded to create this double-album masterpiece. The Blu-ray includes extensive bonus footage, interviews with all band members (as well as some well-known Exile fans) and a featurette of Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts visiting Olympic Studio and Jagger’s Stargroves country house, where most of the early work on the album was done.
Classic Albums – The Making Of Dark Side Of The Moon was originally released in 2003, and traces the creation of Pink Floyd’s iconic 1973 album. Interviews with band members (Roger Waters, Richard Wright, David Gilmour, and Nick Mason), engineer Alan Parsons, the late designer Storm Thorgerson, and others involved unveil the creative process behind this magnum opus which, 40 years after its release, is still one of the best selling albums in history. Bonus features include 40 minutes of additional footage not seen in the original 50-minute television version.
