I'll check it out tomorrow and report backI have had this on my list for ages. And I am going to order it from Amazon UK if: someone can confirm that the listing that says PAL is not going to throw my player into a hissy. I have PAL players but that are not high end, just cheap Chinese players for the old move I come across in PAL. They are not great DVD-A players.
Does this disc play in NTSC players? I wonder why this quad mix as reissued here in the 35th set gets do little mention? I know it's not their best album but...
Is there a US source for this that is not too expensive?
(edit) Sorry if this question was not posted in correct area. I did a search and thought I would post here rather than start another thread elsewhere. Then I had second thoughts. Oh well.
Warners in the US was providing the quad tapes to EMI for issue in the UK. and Warners got to decide what to hand over, and decided this resolution would be fine for them. They could have done a quad-block as it's been called.a "9". fidelity could be better but the mix is fun!
So happy to have Coverdale-era (i.e. funky!) Deep Purple in surround.
The only way it could have been improved, possibly, were if it had been in higher res, although maybe the state of the quad tapes didn't warrant that. Oh and an alternative new 5.1 mix from the multitracks, along the lines of Machine Head, would have got an "11" from me!
