  • Or, the forum for the old vinyl and quad 8's and reels. It's far from complete--there are many hundreds of non-classical titles yet to post--but a few hundred are here with more to come; I pretty much add 'em when I'm in the mood, or one of you good folks PM me with a request to add something. The best way to use this forum is to go to the bottom of the page and look for something alphabetically by title. The last name of an artist is first where applicable, as in Simon, Paul. The Guess Who are listed as Guess Who, The, to facilitate finding them easily. Soundtracks, Original Cast, and Various Artists are listed as such first, then the album title. A few classical titles are here, with Classical as a header (or will be if I ever weed them in). The idea is to be able to alphabetize and then click, page by page, an A-Z (forward or backward) of what it up at the moment. To do this effectively, remember to click 'Beginning' in the left box, 'Thread title' to its right, so that all titles will list. No titles are ever removed, and all are accessible, and nothing (to date) has been lost in the ether. Just as vinyl lasts a lot longer than its creators could have imagined, so has this board, so far. We're small but we ain't goin' anywhere! FWIW, most of these mixes are long out of print, and only available digitally through like-minded audiophiles--some easy to find, some tough, some perhaps impossible at this time due to rarity or someone just hasn't gotten around to making a transfer from the original sources. That's too bad, but the record companies in the new millennium have no interest in reissuing these even as DTS titles. The exceptions are the QS albums, which if you have the equipment, should decode on CD as they did on vinyl, since for most only a QS master was made. Some SQ titles do exist on CD as well, but not a lot, and less of those were SQ only. As for CD-4 discrete, some titles have made their way onto DVD-Audio, DVD or SACD formats and some OOP DTS titles, but the majority are still commercially unavailable, alas. Only vintage albums are spotlighted here, although there is nothing wrong with discussing the alternate 5.1 or quad mixes that have come along since the 1971-76 'golden age' of quadraphonic sound which, thanks to the three major competing formats (CD-4, SQ, QS), inferior decoding equipment, and consumer confusion and misunderstanding and major label incompetence, rendered the format all but dead by the end of '76. Anyone curious about what quad titles from this time frame exist should click here for Mark Anderson's discography listings. Final note: If there is a title you want to see here that I haven't gotten to as yet, shoot me a PM and I'll see what I can do. There are still many hundreds left to go, and we're here to stay....

10. I wasn't expecting much when I picked this up as a new release. It's a WOW!! One of my fave SQ's. Fantastic music, virtually all instrumental, and a superb quad mix. I prefer the SACD 5.1 for it's discreteness and advanced res. I've owned this on SQ, 1/2 speed LP, CD and SACD 5.1. You're a fool if you don't own this.

One of Beck's best and the mix more than matches his inspiration (some of WIRED is equal in quality, some ain't). A '9.' Good that this came out on SACD, a pity others did not.

10. I've been a huge fan of this album since it was new but never acquired or heard it in quad until recently. The imaging of the guitar tracks gives this a whole new dimension.
Why did I wait so long to get it in quad?

Wired is cool! Love Jan hammer band. saw JB once live and I was deeply disappointed as then there were no stage effects, he showed himself to be a great studio artist, but the Hammer band who opened and played with him, was much better.

I'm pleased to report that I saw JB live on 10/30/13 in Milwaukee. He was spectacular. Brian Wilson was also on the bill. If you get a chance to see JB, don't miss him.
I saw him after the release of BxB, and it was-1976? After seeing the video done in London, I see the effects issue has long been resolved in live performance. When I saw him, The hammer band had me mesmerized, I was really enjoying them, then JB came out and burst my bubble. Perhaps it was a bad night also.

It's mentioned on another forum that this Blow by Blow is 5.1 rather than the quad mix.

crikey.. they've actually gone back to the multi's and remixed it into 5.1? curious as to how that'd pan out, JB in centre? JB across all three fronts? JB still in rear L/R with the rhythm sec'n across front?

bit of a shame it's the "same old, same old".. though don't get me wrong, I love BxB and the Quad is showcase stuff.. and if this is in a new surround remix I may even get it.. but "Wired" could do with a remix or even just the old Quad reissuing.. and I'd rather see that instead.

There's this discussion over at sa-cd.net..

http://www.sa-cd.net/showthread/112384//y?page=first

(some plonker fred blathering on about how Wired in Hi-Rez Quad would be preferable to BxB all over again..!)

..then someone wades in with an Engrish tlansration of blurb from a seller's site.. which mentions 5.1.. but it's not clear to me as to what the hell all that means, as I talk a different form of gibberish! :D

Would be nice to have an official WIRED--or any Epic Beck, for that matter beyond BLOW BY BLOW--but if there's a remix coming, I'm in.

It's multi-board. So if you get bored with it you can put up a fence with the materials.

I second a remix of "Wired" over "BBB". I don't think they'd reissue the "Wired"quad mix though. That mix is a little strange in places.
