To me, this cartridge was one of the biggest let-downs when I was first getting into Quad. Love B,S&T and the Greatest Hits album is just a natch for Quad. However, whomever decided to mix this one either had no idea what they were doing OR were simply following the edicts of SQ-mixing to the letter. Sometimes, I wonder if the SQ-master accidentally (or maybe even purposefully) was used for the Q8. The mixes are laid out eerily similar to some of the mixes found on the Mike Robin reels, but on this Q8, it's like they decided to blend all channels by 25% to avoid any silent channels. But by doing that, they completely ruined the four-corner discreteness. This is simply one of the least discrete Columbia Q8 titles. I wouldn't say avoid, but I would say don't expect much. :rolleyes:
