    Just the imaging alone in MC is better than most I've heard. Waste of materials in stereo.

    Yes, LizardKing, it was the 2003. The original Tubal Ligation is an SACD. Yes, I listen to CTA often. Too bad it's lossy. Although they've done better albums, this is a strong one. Beginnings is my fave song ever. Wish they released Chicago X on DVD-A. When it was new, I played the Q8 in my car constantly. I need to bring those Knopfler DVD-A's tomorrow. I've had them for years and have never heard them. As Eric Bibb sings, "I ended up with too much stuff."

    Only the beginning of what I want to feel forever...

    I prefer the Quad Tubular Bells, as well. My car fi will only play that as a CD, not SACD. So, I pulled out the 2003.

    If You Leave Me Now sounds great in Quad, although the only track I like less on Chicago X is Hope for Love. You Get It Up, Scrapbook and Mama Mama are more my style. If You Leave Me hit #1.

    OK, here's my DVD-A playlist for another 80 degree day with the top down tomorrow:

    Shangri-La & Sailing to Philly - The Sultan of Swing
    Going Home - Eric Clapton
    Songs for Beginners - Graham Nash
    If I Wasn't so Stoned, I Could Remember - David Crosby
    Halloween - Francis Vincent Zappa
    The Nightfly - Donald Fagen

    With jazz and conversation, from the foot of Mt. Belzoni.

    Sunday Jazz:

    "In Modern Times" Spyro Gyra [SACD]

    Very convincing surround mix, even if the music is a bit on the easy-listening side.

    "Seven Steps To Heaven" Miles Davis [SACD] {AP 3-channel mix}

    Leaves me gagging.... such brilliance and restraint. To think that this was made almost 50 years ago makes it even more stunning.

    Alison Krauss & Union Station Live - SACD
    Zappa - DTS DVD - home brew containing upmixes of Imaginary Diseases (FZ Big Band live/Grand Wazoo era) and my all time fave Roxy & Elsewhere - plus a straight extraction of Quadiophiliac.

    - sorry Quad Linda, no convertible or DVD A - just the poor man's open sunroof and SACD car player. Still letting my freak flag fly though

    What's you opinion on this one QL? I liked what I'd heard before of this in stereo. Is the surround version worth seeking out? Pity there is no surround version of Benefit as that is my favourite

    It's worth owning. Stand Up is my favorite Tull. Benefit is damn good, too. They need to re-do Benefit, since it's fidelity never was great. It was my first Tull. I'd love to see Living in the Past re-done, but it's bits and pieces, so gathering the masters would be a chore in itself. I'll stick by the MoFi 2 Gold CD as being the best Living. Carnegie uses all three front channels. Good bonus tracks, too. BBC stuff and singles. Disc 2 is the 2ch Carnegie. Great performance, decent surround sound, good (not great) fidelity, nice separation. Get it.

    Thanks Linda. Pretty much what I wanted to hear. Benefit (named my first band after that one) has always been my favourite closely followed by Living in the Past and Songs from the Wood. I agree with your assessment of the sound quality as well. A bit of remixing is warranted too I think to remove some of early 70s excesses found therein or in the very least tone them down a little. I find the feedback in "Time for Everything" almost jarring now. Just a reduction in the amplitude of the feedback would be welcome

    Living in the Past is my second favorite Tull, closely behind Stand Up. The live tracks, including the added ones on the MoFi 2 CD version, have always left me cold. Live Tull in person is Fantastic, though their live recordings tend not to move me. Benefit would be my third favorite. Obviously, I love the early (second?) period best. BTW: if you dig Ian's flute work, be sure to check out Rahsaan Roland Kirk, who authored "Serenade to a Cuckoo." Kirk is an obsession of mine. He also guested on Joni Mitchell's "For Free." He was able to play multiple woodwinds simultaneously, utilizing a circular breathing method. Kirk clearly influenced Ian.

    I recently read some of recording engineer John Burns' comments on the sound of Aqualung, which were included in the 40th Anniversary box's book. Referring to Aqualung: "Ian wanted everything dry. ... After Benefit, which was quite 'swimmy' (reverberant) he wanted the backing track to be dead and dry as a dodo. There was a certain amount of echo on the vocals and guitar (on Aqualung.)"

    Benefit begins with "With You There," which is as bouncy as a racquetball court. Yet, it is engaging, and in my estimation, it works. The best sounding Benefit is the UK import LP, which I sadly traded in when I acquired the CD. It has "Alive and Well and Living In," instead of "Teacher," which is included on the US version. Even that pressing leaves much to be desired sonically. I sense that Benefit is mostly forgotten by those other than hard core Tull fans. Still, in my mind, it is THE prime candidate for remastering. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

    Sorry to have taken the discussion off topic.

I find the feedback in "Time for Everything" almost jarring now. Just a reduction in the amplitude of the feedback would be welcome
