Would like to find an affordable copy of Midnight Oil Capricornia. A group I liked saw them a few times.

I only have experience listening to 2 DTS-CD discs...Seventh Sojourn and Abraxas. The sonics on both were terrible. Not the thread for this, but I have to wonder if any of them sound good. And there are quite a number of Q8 rips out there that sound really nice.
Where would one find solid Q8 rips? :)

Where would you find Q8 transfers ? It was mentioned "Good Rips Out There" in this thread. Maybe I understood it incorrect. Just to be clear, I've never seen much of any Quad mixes online other than YouTube conversions, even some I've posted on my channel as well. Captain Beyoned ? Please advise.

I forgot to add that some of my DTS mixes sound terrible. One noted one is BTO's Not Fragile, played in stereo I mean because I no longer own a SS system. A lot sound pretty good too on the other hand. Sorry for not editing the above post instead of a new reply.

These albums are copyrighted material, you're not going to find links on here to places you can rip them off. That's the route this forum has chosen, and anything else would probably cause it to be shutdown in the long term.

Nobody was talking about that. Sometimes you can find them floatimg around the internet. I found a download link to Love Rollercoaster Quad that I burned to CD-R in 2011. They do exist.

I've always liked this album...I remember buying it as soon as it was released. The follow up to Band On The Run, I couldn't wait to hear it! To me it was a darker, rockier album than his earlier solo albums with a lot of great songs that I still enjoy. As for this release, I think the track order is the only frustrating element to me. I prefer an active surround mix which this version has so I'm going to give it an 8. I'm very glad this disk exists!

This DTS issue is extremely frustrating - it took a significant amount of futzing to get this sounding right. Firstly, all but three of the tracks (Medicine Jar, Listen To What The Man Said, Treat Her Gently/Lonely Old People) had their rear channels out of phase. Also all songs except for those three previously mentioned had the rears 2dB too loud (those three only needed a 1dB adjustment).

Also, the scattered tracklisting of this disc is just nuts. I spent some time putting them back into their right order with the appropriate gaps as per the stereo LP. Sounds much better now overall!

Thanks for this. I think we have a thread somewhere that lists problems like this. (I can't find it.) Would be worth adding this info to that.

the Rear channels out of phase thing on Venus & Mars is fascinating because its also a phenomenon on Jeff Beck's Blow By Blow Quad, also mixed by Geoff Emerick.. i can't help but wonder if these out of phase Rears were done that way on purpose.. 🤔
