Led Zeppelin - catalog, but especially the 4th album
Who’s Next
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Steely Dan - catalog but especially Aja (I know....)
Dire Straits - catalog but especially Love Over Gold and Making Movies

And then I second some others previously suggested:
Supertramp - Crime and Breakfast
Kansas - Leftoverture
Rush - Moving Pictures SW

And then just for fun, how about:
Meat Loaf - Bat Out of Hell done right

One that we can unfortunately only dream of: Magma - Mëkanïk Dëstruktïẁ Kömmandöh

(the multitrack tapes were erased and reused after the mix was completed because the band didn’t pay for them)

Given you avatar, how about Iron Maiden’s first 5-6 albums?
That, of course, would be amazing... but I was thinking of the dense layering of guitars and vocals on Big Country, and how cool of a surround mix could be made. It's also one of my favorite albums :)

I'd echo a lot of the dreams here - Todd stuff 73-76, Cocteau Twins, K Bush...etc

A few others:
Van der Graaf Generator - H to He and Pawn Hearts especially
The Stranglers - The Raven (this is its 40th anniversary, shoulda, coulda done something for it!)
ELP - Welcome Back My Friends
The Cure - Disintegration, Pornography, Faith, Bloodflowers
Portishead

In my dreamscape, there's some Parliament/Funkadelic, Prince's 1999, the National's Sleep Well Beast, and earlier titles from The Pineapple Thief. And Dylan's Time Out of Mind. And a good Fela Kuti title.

I'll echo the wishes for Zeppelin and those atmospheric John Martyn albums, too.

All Things Must Pass - a surround mix would open up this great album that's a sonic mess at times
The Pretender - Jackson Browne (a release of the quad "Late for the Sky" would be a great alternative)
Desperado - Eagles 2nd album with an alleged quad mix in the can
Linda Ronstadt Very Best of - Some of these tunes are total classics
The Wall - of course
America - (First Album)
Aja -
Rust Never Sleeps (Studio, not live)

you know, old man shit! :)

Jon, did you see the new Linda Ronstadt documentary, "The Sound of My Voice"? It is very good - I think it will be on CNN after it finishes it's theatrical run.

For my dream items:

Crime of the Century - Supertramp
The Pretender (Browne) and "The Pretenders" (debut album)!
Lexicon of Love - ABC
High Violet - The National
Love Over Gold/Making Movies - Dire Straits, plus Knopfler's "Local Hero" soundtrack
Not sure how it would come out but "The Beach Boys Today!" would be a kick
Katy Lied - Steely
Born to Run - Bruuuuce

There’s a lot of classic soul/R&B I’d die to have in 5.1:

Any 70s Stevie Wonder, but especially Songs In The Key Of Life.
Any classic-era Prince remixed by Steven Wilson (who is one of the world’s biggest Prince fans)
Sly and the Family Stone - Stand! (some of the tracks are in quad on the Greatest Hits SACD, but *wow*, would I love an actual 5.1 mix of this — I was hoping maybe they’d do a Super Deluxe for the 50th anniversary this year, but no such luck)
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Earth, Wind & Fire - I’d settle for the Greatest Hits albums in 5.1

Other assorted stuff:

Joni Mitchell - Hejira
Jeff Buckley - Grace
Elliott Smith - XO and/or Figure Eight
