How about The Youngbloods' Get Together & Best Of The Youngbloods as a two-fer? The Best Of album in particular has some really nice mixes. Their big hit "Get Together" is actually mixed differently on each release (the Best Of version is much more discrete).
YES........PRETTY PLEASE YES . Would even love a Stereo SACD remaster of the Youngblood's RIDE THE WIND!

This would be an EXCELLENT D-V two-fer. What a great suggestion. Good job!

@sjcorne mentioned in the Charlie Rich Behind Closed Doors poll about how good the Columbia quads are. I would love to get The Best of Mountain. Mountain was a heavy/grungy sounding band; and that grungy sound is really clear on the quad. You can hear all of the instruments very clearly which is not how the music comes across in stereo. The improvement is readily noticeable even on the SQ vinyl. I don't know if Climbing and Nantucket Sleighride were ever done as quads. That would make a nice two-fer. But if not, then The Best of Mountain would be great even as a one-fer like the Garfunkel quads.

I am surprised that D-V has not issued some of the British artists quads such as David Essex;
Mott the Hoople; Argent; and maybe contact Ray O'Sullivan (Gilbert) directly for his two albums
- And hopefully the unreleased Rod Stewart's; Leo Sayer; and the New Seekers (Elektra USA but
Polydor in the UK).... Thoughts anyone...???

Hopefully MJD is just getting his feet wet in all of this, with many years ahead for getting to various titles. After all there are probably road blocks of various types between age/condition, availability and usage/ownership rights of the material. Also, if he's doing the all the heavy lifting of mastering all these titles, there's only so many hours in the day - the man's not a machine:)

How about "Hair" ?
I wonder how hard it would be to get claws into multitracks for something like.... The Rocky Horror Picture Show and release the soundtrack in a vintage sounding 4.0 Quad mix? All those 24-track tapes were baked, transferred and digitized a few years ago now.

I have the QUAD Open Reel of HAIR which I haven't played for [literally] decades and IMO, it would be a slam dunk D~V QUAD SACD release!

And perhaps someone could assemble the Rocky Horror Picture Show's 24 tracks and release them as well although I do anticipate a UHD4K Native Remaster down the road .... perhaps with ATMOS!
Is a 4K Remaster with ATMOS in OUR FUTURE?

Donny Hathaway - Extension Of A Man Quad Mix 1973 & Don Sebesky - Giant Box Quad Mix 1973
would be great new
Dutton Vocalion Multichannel SACD's

I believe Donny Hathaway is on the Atlantic/Warner label so probably not......but would LOVE Don Sebesky's GIANT BOX from CTI! And how 'bout George Benson's stunning WHITE RABBIT from CTI in SACD Stereo [no QUAD mix exists]?

Eric Records has been using a system called ''Digitally Extracted Stereo'' - Could a similar system be used to 'repair' the Dawns GH; Tommy James GH; etc???

BTW - Rock Around the Clock and Jailhouse Rock sound pretty good in DES.....

Didn't we hear recently from other members that the 5.1 and 7.1 mixes on the 2014 35th Anniversary Blu-Ray were very discrete? If so, then those are likely new mixes made from those baked-and-digitized multis, yeah?
