Great album, great quad mix. 9!!!
Agreed.

Some very accessible and catchy stuff along with an excellent quad mix makes for a great listen. The courtroom track is delightfully absurd. Only flaw I find with the mix is the vocal in all four speakers - I would've preferred center front, but it's not a deal breaker. Love the way the acoustic guitar creeps up from right rear in "Must Of Got Lost". I've got a nice CD-4 copy and the transfer to digital came out quite well.

Maybe someday we'll get this and the unreleased Bloodshot quad.

This album is one of those hidden gems of the Warner Quadraphonic library. You don't hear much about it, but it's really a great quad mix. The gem of the album for the uninitiated is the hit song "Musta Got Lost". Those listening to radio back in the mid '70s will recognize this tune immediately if you don't remember it on sight. It got a lot of airplay.

Here's a look at my Q8 rip of that song. You can't really tell much from looking at wav files, but you can see that it's not a 'fake quad' mix, and there are things that jump out at you from different speakers when you listen to the mix.

This one rates high in my book, and like I said, it's almost a forgotten gem..........
