    Breakaway is stunningly good. There are some big names backing Garfunkel.

    I've never knowingly heard any of it before. One of the highlights turned out to be Waters Of March - Águas de Março by Antonio Carlos Jobim. An interesting contrast between Garfunkel's version and that by Elis (Regina) & Tom (Jobim). Both are excellent with superb surround mixes.

    Disney Girls is great too - ably helped by composer Bruce Johnston.

    I can't see anybody being disappointed with it.

    I managed to listen to Angel Clare today (uninterrupted by calls!). I don't know this album at all. So from a first listen, fidelity is good (you can tell this was well recorded in the first place, and well transferred to SACD), music is good, Art Garfunkel has a great voice, and the mix isn't bad, with a circularly panned bell at one point! steelydave's liner notes are great. All in all well worth it.
    254 SACD (219 Multi, 35 Stereo), 218 DVD-Audio/DTS/DD, 27 Blu-ray Audio (19 Multi, 8 Stereo), 14 SQ LPs, 2218 plain old stereo CDs

    I have a question:

    the mix Quad 4.0 of the song My Little Town of the album Simon's Still Crazy is exactly identical of album Garfunkel's Breakaway??

    pretty sure they are, yes.

    edit: i just checked and i made some notes on my phone before packing everything away because this was of particular interest to me since (i'm guessing thanks to the vagueries of the SQ matrix encode/decode process?) i found My Little Town on the SQ LPs of "Breakaway" & "Still Crazy.." to not totally match.. having since compared the Q8s of each album i'm sticking my neck out to say they are indeed the same.

    the placements i noticed in both versions were:
    piano, some percussion and harmonies rear left,
    drum parts incl kick and horns rear right,
    everything else up front.

    one other observation i made at the time was the sound quality was crisper on my Q8 of "Breakaway" than "Still Crazy.." but that may just be my actual carts rather than any mastering difference i dunno.
    "Surround Sound From The End of the World to Your Town"
    840 SACD (691 MCh), 353 DVD-A, 298 SQ LP,
    138 CD-4, 136 Audio-DVD, 118 DualDisc, 115 BD-A,
    114 Q8, 79 DTS CD, 34 QS LP, 29 Dolby Surround CD,

    Little known Snood factoid - throwing some knowledge on ya'lls - that was indeed the original album cover art design on Clare, but was nixed at the last moment - Snood is happy to see Vocalion maintaining the high integrity of the actual originals.

    That album cover on Breakaway always sort of freaked me out. You know....Art always looked so wholesome. lmao

    There he is, sitting at a table with butts everywhere...couple of chicks on each arm...and a glass of whisky.

    OK, might not be whisky....but my story sounds better that way.

    Art was at the same joint as Leonard. Columbia recording artists were secretly taken there and given access to all kinds of substances and fast women. This was solely so that they could all release albums with questionable covers. At least Art's album didn't feature a song titled Don't Go Home With Your Hard-On... :0

    I’m not a big Art solo fan, but I ordered the Lynn Anderson and finally got around to getting Musicmagic. My first DV order.
