With the GRT tapes, I've found that the bulk of them have the left side swapped.

Best of Mountain is the only one so far I've found that has cross-channels mixed up.

Double jackpot for the first Atlantic entry!
Aretha Franklin, live at fillmore west (yellow cart): swapped FrontRight and RearLeft PLUS RearRight phase inverted. All for the whole tape.
No wonder it sounded like crap when i was playing it on the deck...

Carpenters, Close to you (USA edition)*
both swaps FR/RL

*Canadian and UK release are ok.

For Focus Live Q8 H 7147-7408, I agree the left side is swapped.
Without the swap, initial announcer is right front and left rear, crowd is right rear and left front.
So I swapped left front and left rear and now mix sounds correct.

Another Atlantic Q8 that I believe is swapped is Mongo Santamaria Live at Montreux.
Swapped right front and left rear, now sounds right to me. ATL L 1593Q

Hi. All

Have today played ….. "Ahmab Jamal Heat Wave Q8 GRT. C 7035-777" ….. there is only 3 instruments playing piano bass & drums, it sounded unbalanced piano was back right bleeding into front left so I swapped left & right backs and it sounded balanced and I really enjoyed this Jazz number....
