    Yeah Paranoid is probably my favorite right now.

    Great stuff if you have a M/C SACD player.
    Nice post AL, I have a PS3 that plays SACD's and I think I just found my first SACD purchase. I have the gold MasterSound of Bloomfield-Kooper-Stills - Super Session but I see they have a 5.1 multi SACD I'd love to hear.

    If anyone here is a Mike Bloomfield fan then you already know how great this album is. If you aren't then you are beyond help and cannot be saved, sorry

    Is this where I'm supposed to say something clever?

    Back in the day I had quad 8 tracks. My favorites were of The Eagles. Early albums like On the Border. With instruments and vocals mixed to all four corners, you felt like you sitting in the middle of a hootenanny. That was fun!

    I have several Quad and 5.1 albums, either on SACD or DVD-A.
    What do you guys who have listened to any of these think?:

    Queen - The Game (DVD-A)
    Fleetwood Mac - Rumours (DVD-A)
    Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms (Hybrid SACD)
    Deep Purple (Hybrid SACD - original Quad mix)
    Eagles - Hotel California (Hybrid SACD - Japanese edition)
    Billy Joel - The Stranger (SACD)
    Norah Jones - Come Away With Me (Hybrid SACD)
    Eric Clapton - Slowhand (Hybrid SACD)
    Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here (Hybrid SACD) - Most everyone already has the Immersion edition in original Quad, but still wondering what anyone thinks of this less well known one
    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon (Hybrid 5.1 mix SACD)

    I have the Dire Straits SACD in stereo only ("Original Master" version put out by Audio Fidelity) but it is really, really nice.
    I have both WYWH and DSOTM on SACD and personally I love the 5.1 mixes (although others do not).
    I do agree with others that the WYWH and DSOTM QUAD mixes are unreal - I have those too (Immersion version) and have manually downmixed to stereo for easy listening via headphones/car as well. Sublime...

    My personal favourites... I have quite a lot of Quad stuff, mostly old transfers to DVD-A. It's only been the last few years since the record companies got really serious about releasing the original Quad mixes on decent multi-channel formats.

    Proper Quad (4.0)

    Arif Mardin & Richard Harris - The Prophet - 1974
    A CD4 Vinyl transfer by Bob Romano

    R-3477312-1465475078-2211.jpg

    Herbie Hancock - Thrust - 1974
    This has been released on SACD via Audio Fidelity.

    This is newer, but gobsmackingly beautiful, lovely multichannel mix, and great playing...

    Alison Krauss & Union Station - New Favourite (SACD)

    Nice selection, BW! I bought these quad upmixes of classic albums from the Kosmische Musik label recently...

    too bad I still don't have a surround system in my house...

    Fortunately, my neighbor is kind enough to let me listen to his, once in a while. Someday, maybe, I'll have my own setup...
    Will you remember the lesson of giving?

    Years ago I had a Yamaha DSP 1000 and played Floyd OBC with room settings beyond the wall and last track on side 1 filled the room and went up to the wall mounted speakers exhilarating I've only ever heard quad AHM at Mr Brain's garage psychedelic indeed

    Thanks for the heads-up on the Allison Krause. I'll look for that one.

    I have most of the AF quad releases. Great stand outs are The Doors' and Sly Stone Greatest Hits discs. Definitely get those.

    For 5.1, go for the Jeff Beck multis from Japan. Very pricey ($50 each) but real good.
