Glee - 'Encore'! Fox Prepares a Blu-ray Disc with 30+ Hit Music Numbers from Season 1 Episodes
Now you can go right to your favorite musical scenes, all on a single disc!

Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to Gleek Out! This full-length disc features a set list of Season One's most sensational musical numbers - back to back so the party never has to end! All your favorites are here, including Queen's "Somebody To Love", Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" and Madonna's "Express Yourself!"

Last week Billboard magazine reported that the King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis, had been dethroned: the Cast of Glee has now charted more singles on the Billboard "Hot 100" list than the man who made Memphis his home. It's probably no surprise, since the CD releases for Glee have been just as prolific as the home videos. And today we've learned there will be a new home video to add to the list..but one that's more music-focused!

In an early announcement to retailers, Fox Home Entertainment has revealed that on April 12th they will release "Glee - Encore", a collection of 34 musical numbers extracted from Season 1 episodes. At this time, Fox has only informed retailers about this title for high-def Blu-ray Disc format; no DVD version was mentioned. It will cost $29.99 SRP in the USA, and CA$32.99 SRP in Canada.

UPDATE: Fox Home Entertainment has informed us that this title WILL also be available on the standard DVD format, with the same content. It will street on the same date of April 12th, at a cost of $26.98 SRP in the USA, and CA$37.98 SRP in Canada. Package art for the DVD version can be found at the bottom. The studio's marketing for Glee - Encore is positioning the title as "the perfect party companion", pointing out that this release brings you the first season's "most sensational musical numbers - back to back so the party never has to end!"

Audio/video specs weren't passed along to us, but they are expected to be the same as they were on the BD release of Glee - The Complete 1st Season, which was 1080p widescreen video, and English - 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio.
