The Amazon review is WRONG. The Amazon review is describing the Dreyfus Music re-release of the Oxygene & Re-Oxygene boxset (that boxset has a re-release of the original Oxygene and Oxygene 7-13 with a bonus cd of remixes (which have all been previously released in one form or another).

The Oxygene 30th Anniversary releases are FRESH re-recordings of the original Oxygene album. Jean Michel has dusted down his old analogue equipment and (with the help of some friends) have created a new recording for us.

This performance was recorded using new Stereoscopic 3D film cameras. You can buy another boxset which has the audio re-recording with the 3D DVD - but this version is just the 2D DVD version.

I hope this clears things up.

I got my copy of Oxygene 3D on 3rd Dec 2007, and watched it for the first time that evening.

The live performance DVD is good, with mainly vintage analogue equipment. Synth nerds wont be disappointed to see the usual ARP2500's, Mellotrons, Eminent 310's and the odd Moog. Although I'm not sure what a Memorymoog was doing in the set up. Oxygene pre-dates the release of that particular synth by at least 4 years. (takes off anorak)

It is filmed and edited very well. Although I struggled to get the 3D effect to work, neither did my Wife. Perhaps its our TV, perhaps it takes a bit of practice. The sound quality is brilliant, totally faultless. The viewing experience is chilled and relaxed, and very quickly you get entirely absorbed into that classic Oxygene sound.

I often wonder about JMJ's performance capabilities, noticably his solo in Oxygene Part 2 seeming to go astray, and I'm always left questioning his input into such live sessions. He seems to prefer tweeking with a his EMS Synthi AKS's rather than actually playing something. That aisde, its still a pleasure to see the godfather of electronic music at work.

There is no doubt that Oxygene, when it was originally released 30 years ago, had a huge impact on the world. It rightly deserves recognition three decades later, it influenced and inspired artists and fans alike. It still sounds fresh and original today. (I'm sure the "Oxygene" sound has kept the sales of Electroharmonix Smallstone FX pedals un-naturally high for the past 30 years).

To sum up. A really good DVD to have, with a faithful live rendition, filmed and edited perfectly, with fantastic sound. More DVD extra's would of been nice though.

For fans, this is a DVD to treasure and well worth the money.

Allow me to introduce myself. I've been a Jarre fan since the Destination Docklands concerts in London, after the Revolutions album. back then, I tended to like his later works better than the early works with analogue equipment, until Oxygene 7-13 was released. That album made me rediscover his earlier work, and I started to appreciate his first few albums like Oxygene and Equinoxe more. Also, I'd like to point out that I'm by no means an audiophile, I listen to music on average equipment. Perhaps this allows you to relate to this review.

Back to the music. I ordered this new album together with the 2D dvd, as I don't want to mess with 3D-glasses and such. I received the discs at work, and listened to the cd on the trip home (which, as an extreme example of coincidence, took exactly as long as the cd, to the second).

During the first and subsequent listening sessions, I couldn't help but wonder who Jarre had in mind while making this cd. It sounds very much, and I do mean very much, like the original cd. Most instruments sound the same, some bass sounds are a little deeper, some others are not. All the little extra noises which I can't describe in words, and all the sounds like the seagull/seashore-sounds in part 6, are all there in the same places as the original. Compared to the original cd, I couldn't notice many differences. Some instruments sound a little different, of course... But not much. On the contrary, there are a few noises that I'm sure are not intended, such as a soft hissing sound that comes on and off several times during part 1, which I'm sure should not have been part of the music.

DO NOT confuse these boxsets with the Dreyfus Music re-release of 'Oxygene & Re-Oxygene' <-- they are just the original albums with a bonus cd of remixes (which have all been released previously in one form or another).

I remember when this album was first released and the impact that it had at the time. It was just such a unique sound, nobody had done anything like this.

35 years on and it still sounds great, an album that I never tire of listening to. This is an album that should be in everyones record collection.

If you do not already own this album and are unsure as to whether to buy just the CD or this package of CD/DVD then go for this one. The DVD is worth the price alone with its live concert and interviews about the album and instruments used. If you already own the CD but are not sure about this package then buy it, you will not be disappointed.

My title for this review is 'One of the Top Ten albums of all time'. Is it, yes, I firmly believe it can lay claim to that title because of impact that it had at the time and its timeless popularity. A truly great piece of music.
