I can't vote on this Q8 because i don't have a copy to listen to, but i did buy it from ebay years ago, and sold it right back on ebay. I preferred the stereo cd to this. The quad mix was not good at all. Music is goog though.

My review as posted on CBQW....

I already love this record so I know the material. The quad is very good on some songs and not so good on others. The problem tracks suffer from way too much reverb just like many other A&M Q8 releases but it’s not bad enough to hate it. I voted 8.

Did this album ever appear in any other Quad format apart from Q8?

- its my favourite Humble Pie record (I think my vinyl LP is probably worn out!), when I bought it on CD years ago I had to get is as an import from the USA, and I missed out on the Japanese stereo SACD as well.

Duncan, Humble Pie's Smokin' is currently available as a Stereo SACD from Analogue Productions, if you're interested and it sounds fantastic: http://store.acousticsounds.com/d/65077/Humble_Pie-Smokin-Hybrid_Stereo_SACD

If you read the reviews posted on Acoustic Sounds website, one reviewer very favorably compares the AP SACD to the Japanese SHM~SACD.
