Produced by Creed Taylor in 1969 shortly before he broke away from A&M and established CTI as an independent entity, Walking in Space was released in quad only on 8-track tape in 1973 in the US, Canada and UK.

i've never heard this one in Quad, is it as good a Surround mix as the other 3 Quincy Jones Quads?

I didn't know there was a quad mix of this album. I have the CD and the music itself is great, kind of fusion-y and tuneful. Title song and Killer Joe are especially good IMO. Does very well with both quad synth & modern upmixers. So I would expect a discrete quad version to be very creative (y)

Too bad it's only on Q8 which I've never had even in a car! Wish there was an SQ/QS/CD4 LP; I'd seek it out in a heartbeat. I have the quad LP of Body Heat and IMHO Walking in Space is better music, for me anyway ;)
