    Idlewild is a real hoot though...they should definitely give that engineer some more remix projects. It's funny because I think the same guy did the Peach & Fillmore SACDs, which are nowhere near as discrete. Guess he's got different philosophies about mixing studio tracks vs. live into surround.

    Never heard the quad...Kevin Reeves did the surround mix and also remastered Idlewild...he does good work...been around a long time...I think he's still at Sterling Sound....he didn't do the surround mix on Eat A Peach...

    Kevin Reeves does good work , for both Idelwild and the Velvet Underground surround album .Would love it if he would take on some more classics .

    The quad "Peach" is also quite good and was mixed by epladin fr QQ .It's a mix of live and studio tracks which epaladin (Ovie Sparks) mixed .

    a little comment on posts can be found here , specifically post #92.

    I wonder where Ovie got his nickname "Light"...hmm...let's see Ovie "Light" Sparks......maybe he can comment on that if he ever posts on here again...he's a talented guy with an impressive resume...worked with the Marshall Tucker Band and was involved with many other well known bands.... Eat A Peach was certainly a "dual" project...some songs recorded at Fillmore East and some at Criteria Recording Studios...the SACD version also mixed and mastered at different locations...

    Didn't know he also did the Velvet Underground mix...does it have the same ultra-discrete vibe as Idlewild?

    Might have to check it out then...

    The Velvet U is killer.....it is very Quaddy sounding. Old school vibe....music is amazing. In my opinion that is....I dig Lou Reed.

    I have Shaft on Stereo SACD and why they didn't utilize the [magnificent] QUAD masters and release it in multichannel is a cryin' shame! SUCH A CLASSIC!

    Shaft is a perfect quad mix... there’s something unique and discrete in every speaker at all times, and the sparcity of the instrumentation makes the mix that much clearer. I want this in hi-Rez quad!!

    oh faaaa--kkkkk... this is still one of the sexiest Quads I've yet to hear... it helps that the QS decodes so brilliantly through the Surround Master.. maybe one day I'll find the Q8 for the full on discrete-o-quadro experience.. yeah right, pigs might flyyyyyy... but until then..

    David Bowie - Heathen SACD... I can't stop listening to this... the fidelity and mix are spectacular and I love about half the songs ("Slip Away" is killer!)

    Across the fronts, the full band are placed accurately in the sound field as they were on stage.
    (Oakley's bass centered, not phantom L+R)

    Dowd's goal was not rear "discreteness" for listeners 45 years in the future.

    Here's a memory from the late Butch Trucks that puts the much-maligned Fillmore mixes in context:

    http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...story-20160311

    Trucks: If it wasn't for Tom Dowd and his genius at knowing acoustics and setting up microphones ...
    There were certain things that he did to get the sound that you just can't miss on At Fillmore East that every engineer out there would scream and holler is completely heretical.
    For one thing, Tom Dowd always told us that the most important thing about making a live album is that the most important microphones on that stage are pointed at the audience.
    He wanted all the sound on the record to feel like what it was like if you were at the Fillmore East, so he opened all of the vocal mics onstage and left them open for the whole show. Not once did he shut anything off.
    He knew that we could play well enough and that as long as we were playing our best, [the album] was not going to have to be remixed or repaired or anything else. You get all that ambience coming at you, and you don't have to add a whole lot of outboard equipment or reverb or this, that and the other.
    Cast your dancin' spell my way, I promise to go under it...

    Shostakovich/Barber - Symphony No.5 and Adagio SACD (Honeck/Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra)... Fantastic fidelity; wide soundstage mix that fills the room. I love the ending of the 4th movement... BIG tympani drums!! Adagio is the saddest piece of music ever (the theme from Platoon)... wonderful. Thanks for the recommendation, Kal

    GOS - that's perceptive. Thanks for listening! I'm certainly influenced by Jeff Lynne and ELO, but I'm not sure about Cooke actually. He really likes some Supertramp from that era. Perceptive listeners may also hear some classical references/sections in two songs.
    For him big influences are Bach, Joanna Newsom, Rasputina, Tori Amos. People often say XTC and Genesis too, but we didn't really get into them until the past 5 years or so (unfortunately).
    ELO is coming to Denver! I much prefer Lynne as a producer, but I sure do like ELO.

    I love Tori Amos - wouldn't it be fun to have her music in multi-channel? I think so.
