    "Rock On" - David Essex: This has a "grab you by the yarbles" quad mix. It's quite remarkable when you think that it's almost 40 years old. You may not like the tune, but you have to respect the mix.

    "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" - James Taylor: Actually, anything from "Gorilla" is a quad spectacular. Listen to the rears by themselves for some very revealing sounds and vocals.

    "Black Water" - Doobie Brothers: The ultimate quad demo track. This one used to impress even the most "two eared" dudes back in the late '70s.

    Default Re: Quad "Go to" songs.

    Strawberry Fields - Stardrive/Robert Mason YOU NEED THIS RECORD!
    For the Love of Money - O'Jays bass riffs popping up all around you.
    Them Changes - Santana & Buddy Miles fantastic mix, cookin' jam
    Birds of Fire - Mahavishnu Orchestra 5 guys, 4 channels, fantastic mix. does anyone play better?
    Open Up Wide - Chase (light low end) Gimmicky, but SQD-2020 decodes it nicely I'd love to hear it on a Tate. Great on Q8, but there's even less bottom
    Miracles - Jefferson Starship my #2 all-time song. I've always hated the gain-riding when Marty sings "power." All mixes/edits have it. Never say never.
    Jump Into the Fire - Nilsson Schmilsson Harry rocks, really!
    You're So Vain - Carly Simon nice bass. cover looks best on CD-4. son of a gun
    Chicago You Get It Up and Scrapbook are hot Beginnings is the BEST song ever made. Saturday in the Park.
    Make It With You - Bread (makes ALL women my age melt)
    My Little Town - Simon & Garfunkel w/horns just like my hometown, which became a big 'burb. Nothing but the dead and dying.
    Nineteen Hundred Eighty Five - McCartney (shoulda been out on SQ - great on DTS-CD Is that cheating?) great synthesizer runs
    Broddy Bounce - Capitan y Tennille great drum solo & bark
    Touch Me - Doors w/horns stronger than dirt
    China Grove - Doobie Brothers music is the Doctor of my soul
    Hurricane - Dylan
    Dinah-Moe-Humm - Zappa she said her stereo was 4 way
    Riders on the Storm - Doors eerier in Quad, whispers are more audible than in 2ch
    Love, Devotion & Surrender Santana w/Leon Thomas & Wendy Haas from Welcome, NOT the album w/McLaughlin which is wonderful, too
    More Than a Feeling - Boston just halucinating, folks zzzzz I see my MaryAnn walking away...

    I'm curious about this. I have an Adobe Audition decoded version of this album, and the mix on "Rock On" bothers me because the delay on the vocal in the rear channels is louder than the main vocal in the fronts. Are you listening to an SQ album or the Q8?

    Definitely Harry Nilsson's "Jump Into The Fire".
    A quadraphonic sonic assault if you ever heard one!
    (Better if heard from a reel version)
    Music is the universal language.
    Someday we'll all sing together.

    Hearing that Schmilsson reel is still my quad grail. It's pretty great on the scratched CD-4 I got but well, you know, R2R! I can dream.....

    Some of mine already taken (especially "Hello, I Love You!) but I will add:

    "High and Dry" - Gordon Lightfoot. Catherine Smith in the back channels.

    "Riders on the Storm" - The Doors. The whispers.

    "Respect" - Aretha Franklin. It is just dynamite in quad!

    There really are others but that's good for now.

    Mistakes are unforgiveable and likely you'll be thrown off QQ.

    "You can dislike anytime you like but you can never un-dislike. Welcome to the Hotel QQ"

    Actually, I have no idea if I can fix that for you. A lot of the stuff with this forum software is "under the covers", and I'm not a SQL guru.
    It was a miracle that I figured out how to modify Cai's script for the HiRez poll, and that took some serious Googlin'.

    Offerings by the Carpenters was never released in Quad. lol!! The album was retitled Ticket to Ride. Only the title track was released in Quad on Singles.

    At Hotel QQ, you can check out, but you can NEVER leave. Besides, you'd need to check out 5.1, or at least 4 times.

    You all have got to listen to this one...Ive never heard anyone comment on it... and its from an RCA Quadradisc!... BW Stevenson from the Calabasas Album.."We had it all"...the track starts with acoustic guitar left rear and then vocals come in from the right rear... very discrete and simply fantastic!
