Discogs has several described as multichannel Dolby surround CD. Anyone heard these?
I remember liking one of his 80's releases.
The 3 Andrea's CD's I have seen that list dolby surround were issued in only one country which makes me suspicious. Check the Dolby surround discography

Nope, none that I know of....
OTOH, most of them decode great in faux surround; DPLII, DTS X Neural...

Bruford's Feels Good To Me & One Of A Kind are the latest DVD Music with Dolby Surround discs in my collection and I'm enjoying both of them. I think the 5.1 & stereo remixes (while very different from the original mixes) give both albums a "warmer" sound than they've ever had.

Tomita “The Planets”.

This is the first title that I have run through my new Fosgate Model Four that sounds truly discrete. Yes, other titles have a lot of stuff moving around and there is a definite “Surround” effect going on, but if you isolate the back channels you can hear that what you are getting is just a blend from the fronts and maybe the odd instrument or two moving to the back(s). With this one the backs are truly discrete with very little if any bleed from other channels.

These RCA / Victor Dolby Surround CD's seem to sneak by. I was totally unaware of them until a month or two ago when I was alerted to the Mancini ones. Now I know what to watch for with regards to spine art. But, I didn't know about these Tomita's too! Another batch of discs to watch out for now ;).
