Well the result of a brief play around is there in prev. post in 5.1 Flac form.. what do you think?
Ralph.. that is a million dollar can of worms question.. why, why, why do some people love it and some people hate this Marmite mix? Who knows!? I don't!
I guess.. some people love an artist or album so much they're prepared to overlook flaws in a surround mix?
Some people may not have their surround systems properly setup so it sounds fine to them on their rig?
Some people may not be as critical wrt things like surround soundfield as others?
Some people are silly billies?
Some people they hurt one another, they love to see hurt in the other one's eyes.. well I'm not like that at all..
Nobody will be putting it out again corrected, even if they do put it out again (and again) just like Pet Sounds et al., no matter what, the official line will be there's nothing wrong with the mix, even if there really is/was (imho).. to some (not all) in this biz it's just a job and really they give less of a shit than we do. (Unpopular opinion among some I imagine.. but there you go.) also, maybe some of those jobs might still be on the line (even after all this time) if a big deal were made of it..? Ah I dunno, I've got work to do (got so much work, yeah, yeah...)
I fully realize this is a HARVEST poll but for comparison put on ANY AF QUAD SACD and you will be treated to absolutely superb sonics with placement of instruments and a quality of sound which will put the abomination I call HARVEST to rest.
Putting HARVEST 'together again' like good ole Humptey may be a labor of love but unlike a LOT of the reissue and smaller companies today who righted the wrongs of initial surround pressings, AFAIK this was a rather 'important' and much anticipated DVD~A mainstream release and RHINO/WARNER and yes, N. Young, should have recalled it immediately and reissued an OFFICIAL corrected pressing.
Com'on, RHINO/WARNER.........we'd love HARVEST (CORRECTED) and AFTER THE GOLD RUSH (presumably remixed for 5.1) on BD~A in 5.1..........and we want it N O W!
