You are spot on...now this presents a unique situation...looks like all 4 of the new releases will be available at acoustic sounds on the same day...the 30th HERE
Not to worry. AF says only The Doors and Joe Cocker SACDs on 6/30. Your credit card is safe until July.... :)

It gets better - the CD-4 Channel Discrete and QuadraDisc logos are visible on the cover of the Best of the Doors Multichannel SACD from Audio Fidelity! :)

There must have been a fellow QQer behind the scene :sun .
Not only that, but this was the actual album graphic for over 15 years. All LPs were quadradiscs (other than the record club issue), so the quadradisc logo and markings are in keeping with AF's QC in making the graphics match the LPs of their original releases.

And check out the Booklet!!! :)

How is your review coming? :)
I like 'em both. Joe Cocker and The Doors. Interestingly, the stereo version of Light My Fire sounds fine on this one, unlike the same song on that Legends SACD that I disposed of.

For those of you charting the delivery of such things:
Amazon sent me the text stating that my copy is my home mailbox in Long Island.
Will likely not listen to it tonight since I feel the need to pay some respect to Chris Squire by giving some YES a spin.

He leaves this world with an absolute amazing legacy of bass works no other bassist can match, so his contributions to YES' S albums will live on perhaps as an historic progressive rock LEGEND.

Since this was originally a "Quad only" release, the quad labels ARE the original labels for the album. That's not the case with other albums that had quad mixes released after the stereo LP.
