Another treasure - Listen to it all but start with LAZY , Pictures, SMOKE, SPACE TRUCKIN'//// my friend and I were blown away. Great sound, great mix, lyrics, photos, 24/96, the whole smash this needs to be re-evaluated like the
Rhino 2001 ELP BSS DVD-A. Re-Vote! It is infuriating to see some snoozers above theses discs.

In my quest to catch-up as a latecomer to the surround scene, I acquired this a few years ago -- and what a revelation! Having laughed at some of my peers in my teens about the lyrics (and face it, the lyrics to SMOKE are pretty stupid :cautious: ), I was pleasantly surprised what a fun listen this was in surround :phones.

I've done a little homework. Let's see if I can get this right:
2002 - two different M/C mixes were released.
EMI put out a SACD containing the original 1972 quad. mix.
Rhino put out a DVD A with a 5.1 mix.
2011 - Warner Japan put out a SACD version of the 2002 Rhino 5.1 mix.
2012 - EMI put out box set containing a DVD (lossy)
version of the original quad. mix.
Teacher please grade my homework!

EMI SACD of the quad mix...it's Tops!
Agreed, this SACD is the best mix and mastering. Careful there are two MCH SACD’s with different mixes. You want this one as referenced by John.

For reference:

I'm glad you brought this up. Never knew about a DVD A. Also didn't know there were different mixes.
Thanks

You were expecting Shakespeare, maybe?

Smoke on the Water
Deep Purple, Ian Gillan
We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
They burned down the gambling house
It died with an awful sound
Funky Claude was running in and out
Pulling kids out the ground
When it all was over
We had to find another place
But Swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
We ended up at the Grand Hotel
It was empty cold and bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Making our music there
With a few red lights and a few old beds
We make a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this
I know we'll never forget
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky

Definitely not Shakespeare...but it does rock!
