A poster over on SH.tv just said this:
To which I replied:Just found out at Steve's Facebook page what he's been working on...Audio Fidelity's stereo/4.0 quad SACD of America's "Homecoming"(1972), the "Ventura Highway" album...don't have a release date yet, but this should be a GREAT one!!!:goodie::wave:
And the original poster came back with:That'll most likely be the 5.1 mix done by Elliott Scheiner about 10 years ago for the DVD-A rather than 4.0 quad, unless they've managed to dig up an unreleased quad master. Hearts and Holiday were released in quad, but Homecoming wasn't.
The good news either way is that Scheiner's 5.1 mix is one of his very best, in my opinion, and I hope that more people get to hear it.
So it looks like we may possibly be getting Homecoming by America with an unreleased quad mix on the multichannel layer. It's a great album, and if the info above is true it's a pretty cool release if you ask me - I think they could have easily reissued the 5.1 mix but instead they've dug up a previously unreleased quad master for us. More of this, please!According to Steve's Facebook post about this, there WAS a quad reel of this album produced back in the day that was never released...and will be included in this SACD...
