    I was thinking the reason it could sound better on vinyl is that sometimes the low end is dialed back a bit in comparison to the CD mix.

    That was probably the perfect state of mind in which to see a Magma show. I can't imagine being awake that long, but that's an appropriately epic, mood-setting prologue to weighty music.

    Wasn't it also 25 years from the release of his Flower King album? So maybe they thought it was a good marketing strategy. I mean, otherwise I don't see much of a connection to the original.

    I doubt he has any need to assert any ownership. I could be wrong, but it seems clear to me judging by events over the years that he's already the sole owner of that edifice.
