Well, it would have to be remixed into surround as the Surround Discograhy only lists Musicmagic as the only Return to Forever album remixed into surround
RETURN TO FOREVER -
Musicmagic. Columbia PCQ-34682 (SQ), CAQ-34682 (Q8)
A Penteo upmix again. Mike Oldfield - Collaborations (1976).
I've got the Boxed 3CD Ed. a long time ago. Collected all those songs from the three CDs and mixed them to 5.1 using Penteo. Knowing this Box for so many years. It contained four LPs and Collaborations was never released as 4.0 or 5.1 (officially). May be I'm wrong.
Especially "First Excursion" is my favourite piece on this CD.
Tubular Bells was released as 4.0 SACD and crippled 5.1 dolby digital version, Hergest Ridge and Ommadawn as lossy 5.1 AC3 as well. What a shame to those fantastic and beautiful pieces of art. DTS9624 is a minimum requirement, isn't it?
Made available on 2 LP set in SQ quad , no stereo only copies, all were quad SQ.Nice! As LP (SQ, CD-4 or ???). But never as SACD, DVD or BD.
Do you have the "BOXED" 3 CD Set? I don't know if mine is from 1989 actually. Have to take a look. But anyway, only TB was released in 4.0 on SACD. What a pity that the rest wasn't... including Collaborations.Made available on 2 LP set in SQ quad , no stereo only copies, all were quad SQ.
I have the 1989 German CD Set , which says remixed in quad (This CD set is stereo) for all 3 of the first albums, Tubular Bells , Hergest Ridge , and Ommadawn .
But an a/b comparison to the quad SQ LP album proves it's still in SQ quad as it was with the original .
That's no surprise as it has to be remixed entirely to remove the SQ Matrix.
Pic of cd liner notes for Hergest Ridge , to show what I mean.
Yes I do have the 3cd Boxed set. I ordered mine back in 1990 straight from Virgin Records in G.B.Do you have the "BOXED" 3 CD Set? I don't know if mine is from 1989 actually. Have to take a look. But anyway, only TB was released in 4.0 on SACD. What a pity that the rest wasn't... including Collaborations.
