The keeper is a solid cover of "Train Kept A-Rollin.' The rest is pretty good as are the mixes. A '7' darn close to '8' for me.

Question!

I was getting ready to do a conversion of the SQ and I noticed (again, cause I did notice the first time but I thought it was something wrong in my system)..

There is a 3 dB drop on the right channel in the middle of "Train kept a'rollin'" that starts a couple of minutes into the song and lasts for about 3 minutes-right thru the studio to "faux live" section of the song...

I have TWO copies of the SQ and it's on BOTH...can anyone confirm if it's there in the Q8 or is it just on the SQ?

(It's as if someone pulled the fader down on the right channel bus and then back up again!!!:mad:@::mad:@:)

Don't know what to do..I'll prolly match the volume on the right side when it dips cause if I leave it lower it'll affect the decoding... or was it that way originally?..don't think so...

I don't recall myself. Hummm.

But "Get Your Wings" is one of the coolest hard rock albums ever recorded. Steven Tyler's vocals are astounding on this album. They made "Train Kept a-Rollin'" their own song. Blew even the Yardbirds out of the water. Jeff Beck even knows this fact. I love it that Beck has joined them onstage several times over the years beginning in 1976.

Yes, it is;I LOVE early (ehem..drugged out..) Aerosmith !!! Great LP... (reminds me of the first online petitions which was that Aerosmith should go back to doing droogs cause their "clean" stuff SUCKS!!!!..."Nine lives" wasn't bad...I'm also part of a VERY small minority who really digs "Rock in a hard place" )

Didn't know about the Jeff Beck story...I'll have to look up some videos online if there are any...they DID DO the ULTIMATE version of "Train..."

See if you can check out that dropout....

Kapn- Check out the movie "Blow Up" (a classic of 60's film btw....) and you can catch the Yardbirds doing it live for a bit before......something happens.
Probably on YouTube.

Been digging into a great Q8 conversion of this one for a few days now...

The Aerosmith quads are certainly exemplary, but it's worth noting that Rocks is the only one that seems to follow the rules of mixing for SQ. Toys In The Attic leaves a lot of silence coming from the rears, while this one has a lot of front-to-back instrument bleed. Some songs are certainly more discrete than others, but the rears in the majority of "Same Old Song And Dance" and "Train Kept-A-Rollin'" sound awfully like the fronts with no vocals. It's definitely real quad though as there are some discrete moments, but not the usual crazy separation most columbia mixes have. It's also worth noting that "Train" has a ton of ambience in the live section.

My favorites off this one are "Lord Of The Thighs", "Spaced", and "Seasons Of Wither" as the mixes are much more four-corner discrete. The opening of "Seasons" is particularly cool with the acoustic and electric guitar playing the same melody split front and back. "Spaced" is the one I really keep coming back to though...great song and killer mix.

I don't have the SQ disc of this one, but I imagine it's not the most accurate decode. As for the other two titles, the Toys SQ is the ultimate torture test, while Rocks decodes quite well.

All three are stellar content wise, though the Rocks quad mix is miles ahead of the other two IMO. This is still an easy 9 though.

Now, what do we have to do to get all 3 digitally released?????
