Update: I have gotten confirmation that the Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart DVD should be identical to the existing releases with the exception that Blue Velvet will be getting a brand new 5.1 re-mix for 2008 which will be done by David. I’m surprised as the previous one sounded pretty good but maybe they found additional elements for this one. Industrial Symphony will be remastered for this set and will remain exclusive for this release along with the Mystery DVD which still remains a mystery. According to Absurda, only David knows what is on the Mystery DVD and he isn’t spilling the beans. The box set will be distributed by Ryko, so expect it at most stores and online retailers. I have to say that the most interesting aspect of this release is Absurda’s ability to secure titles outside of Lynch’s current ownership. I can only hope this means that at some point, a Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me deluxe set could be a reality. One can only hope… Stay tuned.
