Also, it would be very cool to try and "fill in some gaps" so to speak, for those titles where I cannot locate remix engineer info on the actual SQ LP sleeves..

I would dearly love to know who did the Quad mixes on..


Jeff Beck - Blow By Blow,
Jeff Beck - Wired,
Neil Diamond - Serenade,
Earth Wind & Fire - That's The Way Of The World,
Art Garfunkel - Breakaway,
Herbie Hancock - Thrust,
Isley Brothers - 3 + 3,
Isley Brothers - Live It Up,
Isley Brothers - Harvest For The World,
The Manhattans - Feels So Good,
Dave Mason - S/T,
The Miracles - Love Crazy,
O'Jays - Family Reunion,
Santana - Amigos,
Santana - Festival,
Paul Simon - There Goes Rhymin' Simon,
Paul Simon - Still Crazy After All These Years,
Phoebe Snow - Second Childhood,
Return To Forever - Musicmagic,
Tower Of Power - Ain't Nothin' Stoppin' Us Now,
Andy Williams - Andy,
Edgar Winter Group & Rick Derringer,
Johnny Winter - John Dawson III..

I have my hunches on some of them,
Santana - Amigos & Santana - Festival = Fred Catero,
as they are in a similar 'style' to his Herbie Hancock "Secrets" Quad,
for which he received remix engineer credit... but they are uncredited on the sleeves of my Israeli-pressed SQ LPs, can anybody here please help?

Paul Simon's "There Goes Rhymin' Simon" Quad credits Phil Ramone as the Quad Sound & Supervisor but no actual engineer credit.. does anybody here know who is the most likely candidate out of Keyes/Young/Halee, etc..?

Here are my additions after trawling google/discogs...if you're going to add these to the initial post, any chance you could rearrange the names in last name alphabetical order so they're easier to go through in future?


Dick Bogert
Minnie Riperton - Perfect Angel


Fred Catero
Herbie Hancock - Headhunters (supervised by David Rubinson & Hancock)


Larry Keyes
Company - A Musical Comedy (Original Cast Recording)
Funny Girl - Original Soundtrack
Peter Matz - Quadraphonic Spectacular
Santana - Santana (1st Album)
Morton Subotnick - Sidewinder


Carmine Rubino
Barbra Streisand - Funny Lady OST


Wayne Tarnowski (not Jarnowski)
Chicago Transit Authority
Chicago - III
Chicago - V
Chicago - VII
Chicago - VIII
Chicago - IX
Chicago - X


Don Young
Annie - Original Soundtrack
Chicago - II
Bob Dylan - Desire
Earth Wind & Fire - Head To The Sky (Supervised by Harold J. Kleiner)
Billy Joel - Turnstiles (discogs claims 'uncredited quadraphonic remix engineer')



Don Puluse was also one of the original the engineers on some of the early Chicago albums (II, III and Carnegie Hall) before they moved to Caribou Ranch and Wayne Tarnowski (who I think was basically a junior/assistant at Columbia NYC) took over all of their engineering up until they parted company with their producer/manager James William Guercio after Chicago XI in late 1977/early 1978.

Thank you Dave that's wonderful! This was inspired by you so it is fitting that you should be filling in so many gaps!

When you say names in alphabetical order do you mean the Remix engineers' names?

Yeah, alphabetical by engineer's last name - that way if we're adding any more it will be easy to scan the list to see if it's already there.

henrybush_stax_quad.jpg

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong here, but I'm pretty sure all the Stax quad releases used the stereo jackets with a sticker put on top denoting SQ and the modified matrix number. If that's the case, this picture would be the closest we have as to information about who was responsible for them. It's also no surprise how good the Stax quad mixes are given that they were apparently done at the Columbia studios with the Columbia guys overseeing them. I think this is all the Stax quad mixes:

Isaac Hayes - Joy (1973)
Isaac Hayes - Live At The Sahara Tahoe (1973)
Isaac Hayes - Shaft (1971)
Isaac Hayes - Tough Guys (1974)
Isaac Hayes - Truck Turner (1974)

Staple Singers - Be What You Are (1973)

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here,
The discogs entry for the Immersion box set of this has the following credits:

Mixed By [4.0 Quad Mix (1975)] – Brian Humphries
Mixed By [4.0 Quad Mix (1975), Assistant] – Peter James


The discogs entry for Weather Report's 'Mysterious Traveller' has Ron Malo credited as the engineer for the stereo version, and Ron Malo, Tim Geelan for the quad version so it seems most likely that Tim Geelan did the quad mix. The credits for 'Tale Spinnin' only list Bruce Botnick as the engineer in both the stereo and quad entries - it's not definitive but given he did that EW&F quad mix around the same time, it wouldn't be surprising if he did the quad mix of Tale Spinnin' given he did the stereo one. I think he's active in the Pono community forums so it may be possible to ask him about this.

Do any of those EMI albums that have had the quad mixes released on CD+DVD sets have quad remix credits in the booklets? Thinking of titles like Electric Light Orchestra, Ten Years After, Barclay James Harvest, and even the two Gentle Giant albums, Interview and Free Hand.

Great thread Adam. It really appeals to the music geek in me! I have to read album notes to find out who wrote the music, played, where it was recorded, who engineered, produced and mixed them.

Do any of those EMI albums that have had the quad mixes released on CD+DVD sets have quad remix credits in the booklets? Thinking of titles like Electric Light Orchestra, Ten Years After, Barclay James Harvest, and even the two Gentle Giant albums, Interview and Free Hand.
Thanks! I've added the WYWH info.

Good thinking! :upthumb I've added the info for Quad engineers on GG's In'terview & Free Hand, BJH/Once Again, Tubular Bells and Deep Purple's Stormbringer. The ELO Quad DVD, Ten Years After Quad DVD and Deep Purple/Machine Head Quad SACD don't list the Quad engineers unfortunately.

Great thread Adam. It really appeals to the music geek in me! I have to read album notes to find out who wrote the music, played, where it was recorded, who engineered, produced and mixed them.
Thanks Duncan but steelydave must take the credit it was the kernel of his idea that got me "reelin in the engineers".. :D

Edit: So.. seeing as I mentioned reelin in the engineers (and stowin away the quads).. here is a poser.. does anybody know who remixed those three Steely Dan albums into Quad?

It would be good if Audio Fidelity could release them :)
Tell me about it! Fantasy also owns the CCR catalog which was released on SACD by Analogue Productions but in Stereo only. I truly wonder if AP would go through the trouble of issuing Quad mixes. I hope AF gets to pull that rabbit out of the hat. I'd buy every one of them.

Regrettably only Gold was released in quad. I have not heard if quad mixes for any full albums exist and Mr. Hoffman isn't doing new mixes from multis, only cleaning up existing 4.0 mixes. That said, I would buy all the albums in 4.0 or at least Gold if it came out. Anything modern has to be better than my 8 track.
