Have a request for all my forum friends,

Can you guys pick your top 20 QUAD SACDs from the Dutton-Vocalion Pop/Rock '70s Quad Reissue list? (81 discs so far)

I want to expand my musical horizons and for sure this is the right place for that.

Thank you


I just noticed one page before you posted this:


I Just did a total count of the disc that I have,

From a total of 76 on that list

got 51 + 5 ordered = 56

Not bad

Regards,

You already have at least 56 discs on the list? o_O

I invite you to list your 20 favorite and 10 least favorite that you bought.

For its astronomically superlative quad mix alone, you definitely require Herbie Hancock - Sextant in your collection. It’s trippin’, dude!

Patience there, Grasshopper. There's always a calm before a storm. I recall there were some pretty longhair releases before they slammed us with The Guess Who, Argent, The Raiders, etc. They certainly seem to be selling well for a dead format with no market or demand! :ROFLMAO:

I'm hoping the next batch will be more up my alley, too. Wracking my brain trying to think what they'll be? Even if we get some southern-flavoured country music, I'd be in for that, too.

I really would like:

Earth, Wind & Fire - Spirit/That's the Way of the World

Anyone know of a U.S.A. retailer that ships locally? I don’t really want to wait over a month to receive it from the UK with fear of it being lost.

Let's do a 3fer of Quad discs for the one and only......Americas answer to the Stones.....Aerosmith - Wings, Toys & Rocks!!! I'd die and be willing to do to hell for them.....!!!

PS: A songbird from Japan whispered in my ear not too long ago that maybe just maybe Sony Japan just might have in the works 7" Quad SACD packages coming out in the near future....just don't quote me on it ok :)
