'Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night' is definitely my favorite Caravan album. Probably their most guitar heavy one. Dig up the quad mix!
I second that!!!!
I'll chime and say I think this is a great disc, even with just a DD track. I didn't know the album or the band and enjoy the music a lot. The mix is spectacular and the sound quality is as good as my 50 year old, been to way too many concerts, ears could expect. I would rate it in a poll, but don't think I see one available. Anyway, I'd recommend to anyone who appreciates early prog rock and wants to hear a great surround mix.
Is there a poll? I finally got around to listening to this. I wish it was not Dolby only, but I really like the music and surround mix. I would give it a 9 on those two merits alone, but perhaps knock it down to an 8 for sound quality. It is easily my favorite Dolby Disc, and I plan to play it again soon. Now I might have to spend more money and explore some other Canterbury style bands. Darn you Brits!
I could not find a poll for this release. Anyway, I found this disc last night in my collection that was unheard. I loaded the disc and looked for dts only to find Dolby. I was really shocked how good this disc sounded and the SW mix is really good. I am not a fan of Dolby, but this disc will get repeated plays now that I found it :>) I will give this a 9, -1 for Doldy. Hi-Res or dts would earn a 10.

It is a good mix and does sound good. Thanks again sw!
Here's another title I found out about through this great forum and recently purchased a sealed copy on ebay for under $20 including shipping. The music is very good! Thanks QuadraphonicQuad.
I've been burned (almost to phobic levels) by the 'Deluxe Edition' multichannel mixes. If I see the 'Deluxe Edition' slipcase piccie on an advert now, I swear I shudder a bit. Paranoid quad was a shambles. I forced myself through 12 mins of Hergest Ridge. I won't ever play it again. Following on from this I didn't even open Ommadawn ( but thanks to OD I can be in Ommadawn heaven ). Will someone please tell me if this Dullby Digital only (by the look of it) is worth me spending my hard earned cash ? There doesn't seem to be a poll....
Oh yeh, the last Dullby Digital only multichannel disc I tried to listen to was Snakes And Ladders. Oops Snakes And Arrows. Was thinking of the fantastic Mr. Rafferty. There aren't any words in my vocabulary to describe how disgracefully awful that was.

IMHO, Caravan is worth your cash, I've traded my copy with a fellow QQer (Madrid, I'm looking your way) myself. But would I be much happier with the lossless version? Yessiree!

Edit: I don't have it and I don't know for sure as I can't find it by snooping myself.. but I've heard about this (from a usually reliable source) next time I see them, I'll ask them about it again.

Ty haikubass & rusinurbe for the speedy answers. I did a sort-by-title but it's got a bloomin' 'NEW:' prefix which threw me off. Does the 'NEW:' get removed when it's 'Not so NEW:' ? Anyway, just going to read the thread and I can feel my trigger finger is itchy. Might be the .... oh, that's another story :-) It's now added to my wants list.
