“Mensch” was first released in 2002 and became Herbert Grönemeyer’s most successful release to date. With more than 3.1 million copies sold, it is now the best-selling album in Germany and reached platinum status even before its release due to pre-orders. Mensch” was recorded at the Mayfair Studios with his long-time producer Alex Silva in Herbert Grönemeyer’s then adopted home of London.
Herbert Grönemeyer produces his albums in the best possible recording quality. Thus “Mensch” was released in high-resolution quality on the SACD as early as 2002. The Hi-Res recordings were the basis for this studio edition with a resolution of 24Bit and 96kHz. Besides the stereo mix, a 5.1 surround mix is also included. This also served as the basis for the Dolby Atmos mastering of the album.
The playback of these sound formats is made possible by Pure Audio Blu-ray; a medium developed for music playback based on the Blu-ray Disc. Playable on any standard Blu-ray player, including corresponding game consoles with Blu-ray drives.
Also included on this Blu-ray is “Mensch – Live,” a recording of the two-day 2003 concert from the Arena AufSchalke during his “Alles Gute von gestern bis Mensch” tour at the time. Grönemeyer’s classics like “Bochum”, “Männer”, “Flugzeuge im Bauch” or “Mensch” can be heard and end in a fulminant “Currywurst”. In front of an audience of more than 65,000 people, a concert recording was made, characterised by great emotionality, even though the recording technology of the time did not yet allow the sharpness of today’s video productions. The concert recording is also available in stereo, 5.1 surround sound and for the first time in a Dolby Atmos version based on it.
Studio album and live concert are available remastered on this Blu-ray Disc.
