    Stardrive was our demo album when CD-4 was new. Through 4 Altec Voice of the Theaters, we had the biggest WOW factor in town!

    Had the opportunity to hang backstage with Herb Alpert & Lani Hall at one of their concerts. Also got to hang with the guys from War. Cool memories.

    Seal II -DVD-A
    Women on top- Silverline DVD-A (another member mentioned in the "Adjusting rear channel volume" thread that Blondie's "Heart of Glass" needed some real boosting to ACTUALLY appreciate the fact that it is not an upmix- thanks-it's true, I always thought it was an upmix since the rears are about 4 dB lower than they should be...the rest of the stuff is not bad, but I get the impression that the remix engineers just slid the faders up, eq'ed a bit and hit the record/bounce button)

    Yes, dated but a good one in Quad. I find I play Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass Greatest Hits Q8 more than Whipped Cream in Quad though.

    Is this the same "Stampede" album as the one in Quad by the Doobie Brothers ?

    Whether they're Doobies, Blunts, Spliffs, Pot or Wacky Tobaccy Brothers, they all sound the same. With enough of that stuff, CD-4 becomes octophonic!!

    I'm a big Herb Alpert fan and have met him and his wife Lani. To me, Q8's are all a comedown. I own a couple hundred of them, but I often play those titles on CD or LP and synthesize. Blaspherer! I've replaced nearly all Q8's possible on SQ and CD-4. I'd rather listen that way. Those 2 Q8's never made it to Quad vinyl. Please don't tell me how good DVD-A conversions are or that Q8's sound better than 2ch 8's. They're all pretty low-fi, albeit discrete.

    I think the mixes could be better on many A&M Quad titles, especially the early Q8-only ones. Most later A&M titles, when RCA pressed them, especially the CD-4's are pretty good mixes. I was severely disappointed that no one bought the killer "You Smile, the Song Begins" album in '74. Even I didn't buy it. I got a promo with a T-shirt and mobile. It's terriffic. Since it stiffed, the Quad was scuttled, as was Coney Island. Sad. Passion Dance on DTS CD is a wonder, albeit not hi-res. I saw him on that tour and have an autographed disc. If you don't own Passion Dance, get it!!

    Agreed, Passion Dance on DTS Music Disc is very good. I remember Coney Island being slated for Quad release and then cancelled - disappointing.

    Billy Cobham- Spectrum DVD-A...gonna have to reauthor this and boost the highs and lows by at least 6 dB!!! (end of rant!)

    EDIT TWO:
    Björk- Vespertine DVD-A (definitely better than the DTS in the "Surrounded" Box....) her best CD IMO

    Sigh. It could have been so amazing. Instead it's just.... okay.
    Hey, at least we got all of those extra tracks that would have been left out!!!

    Oh, no doubting the quality of the music. And I do like the 5.1 mix... I just wish it wasn't so damn loud and distorted...
