John Gorka is one of my favorite artists.   His songs and his voice are memorable, meaningful and introspective.   His career spans over 30 years since his early days playing in college through 10 albums for Red House Records and Windham Hill.   He even had a number of country hits and some music videos on CMT.   But I don't think of his music as country … more folk.   I've collected almost all of his recordings after being hooked by “Land of the Bottom Line” on a recommendation of my sister.   But the sound of his recordings don't do justice to the magic of his resonant voice and his sincere approach to songs.   Shot In HD This HD Audio and Video Collectors Edition bring this artist and a few of his musician friends into your personal space to perform a private concert for you.

This project has 2 double sided discs, a 14 package booklet and deluxe packaging.   The first disc is a DVD-Video disc with 14 gigabytes of audio and video.   One side “the interactive side” contains a variety of audio/video media including: complete session videos, music video, interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, rehearsals, comprehensive explanation of the DVD format [including DVD-Audio, DVD-Video and DVD-ROM], digital encoding methodologies [AC-3, DTS, PCM and MLP], instructions on how to setup your 5.1 channel surround system, test tones/channel IDs checks and demonstrations comparing stereo mixes to 5.1 mixes and the other side “the linear PBS style side” contains a 2-hour combination of songs, intros etc.   The second disc is a “DualDisc” that has a DVD-Audio side and a CD side.   You can play the music at the ultimate fidelity level in surround or play the CD in your car or portable device.   Everything you want to know about John Gorka is here … enjoy!
