They look real - and the one I have in stereo is certainly a different mix than it's dts counterpart - I bought them off ebay quite a while back - I did end up with more than a few upmixed CDs marked dts surround - which - for surround effect - are kind-a meaningless in breaking them down, then encoding them (I've tried - and they come out a complete mess)!
This year will be 36+ hours of material either originally released in matrix quad, or extracted from a discrete source, and encoded using the Involve circuit board. I'll try to publish a complete playlist before air-time.

You are showing several there that have never been released in any form of surround:
James Taylor, 170 songs & carols, Jethro Tull, The children of Christmas, The magic of Christmas, Wonderful sounds of Christmas, Magnavox (marked as SQ, but when played nothing comes from the rears).
There are a few I question, but am not sure about:
Boney M, Trijntie Oosterhels, Super Euro.

weeding out the upmixes as I go - the James Taylor was a mistake - it's only one Taylor Christmas quad (that is one track) - mixed from multi-tracks - same with Mariah Carey - All I want for Christmas is you - again - from multi-tracks. The Magnavox and Admiral SQ samplers - they are what they are. The wonderful sounds of Christmas is a hi-rez, that turned out to be just that.
I can't always track down the original source, so I rely on how well they sound - and how well they do (or do not) decode once I'm done with them. - it's a process. Thanks for responding - and keeping me honest :)
