Regarding the albums that get a 5.1 mix, interesting what they are. Obviously, we get Camel's killer first few...

Camel 1973
Mirage 1974
Snow Goose 1975
Moonmadness 1976

Then we skip Rain Dances 1977, Breathless 1978, I Can See Your House From Here 1979

Yet, we get Nude from 1981 in surround.

Regardless of the strategy/reasons....getting those first 4 is what I care about. I haven't heard any of the later stuff from Camel. :)
