    Just for the record (haha...record...)

    IMO, every single BJH release (multi) has had too loud vocals. I've made comment about it somewhere I know. Seems to me, that on my Denon, it allows you (via some sort of processing I think) to lower the vocals. I don't recall it having negative impact on other instruments.

    Got my copy today too, lowered the center by 6 dB, like with XII

    Very nice surround disc.

    Yep, it does sound nice and yeah - vocals are elevated as normal. I went ahead and ripped as is, once I really crank it I'll decide if I want to do that.
    Did you listen to Suicide? Crazy huh...walking up the steps...

    I don't mean to be a dope, but what exactly does this mean? Likely more surround titles from BJH?

    And does that also mean that there's a chance for 5.1 titles of Squire and Curved Air too?

    Probably so, as long as the multitrack tapes still exist for those albums.
    At the very least, I'm sure the deluxe edition of "Once Again" will include the original Quadraphonic mix.

    Well it's already been mixed in 5.1 surround, and it has yet to be released in such a way, but given Esoteric's recent track record, I feel pretty good that we'll get it very soon.

    Oh, lets do some Be Bop Deluxe in 5.1 - that idea gets me pretty stoked, and I think Bill could be on board with it, give the buyers something new rather just another reissue.

    "Drastic Plastic" was quite likely mixed in "QUAD DISCRETE" or so it would seem as the BBC broadcast some of the tracks in their Quad matrix back in the day.

    So here's hoping.
















    FWIW They also broadcast album tracks in Quad for Tull's Minstrel and Too Old... and thanks to those respective re-issues
    we got the full albums in quad .

    When I asked if all four of these Barclay James Harvest reissues would have 5.1 surround, the band (or band representative) responded back saying "Hopefully, yes."

    Octoberon:

    Fidelity: Superb as always. Drums are huge just like on all the other releases. I like, I does.

    Surround Mix: I don't mind a loud vocal in the centre channel (my centre is +2dB) but dang, it's REALLY loud on some tracks and varies a bit within some tracks too (maybe that's why it was mixed as loud as it was?). Not a biggie for me though. Whoever is mixing these surround releases is doing an awesome job.

    The Tunes: I really like this band and hadn't even heard of them until these surround releases started coming out. Great in all respects.

    Are we gonna get individual polls for Everyone is Something or Other, Gone to Erf, Rocktoblerone and MCM-1701? Cos I'm ready to vote.
