We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort.

Didn't realize that the 4 Channel Surround Sound mix for "Clair" by Percy Faith was remixed by Jim Hobson - the engineer who worked on the Surround Sound mixes for the Mystic Moods.

This one gets an "8" from me.
