The mix is one that would not please everyone but I take it as it is and I find the gold cart slightly better sounding that the black one. I doubt it'll happen but a Dutton/Vocalion two-fer of Bobby's Quads would be superb.

If you have a good 8-track player, (I have 4 CR80D-SS decks) a fine quad receiver,(HK 900+) and four Cerwin Vega 15" thump ass speakers you don't need anything else. Well, maybe a couple hundred Q8's! Yep, got those too. No speaker settings. Put the joystick in the sweet spot and you're there.

It would be a hoot, and the "quad" is not that great, and there's only one song on the album worth a crap, but getting a DV SACD of "The Archies" would be rather absurd - and cool. Totally unrealistic after the 30 or so quad guys here would buy it, Mike would be stuck with a stack of discs no one wanted.

I'd be one of those 30! (Somewhere in a landfill in the upper Midwest rots the remains of my cereal box record that included "Sugar, Sugar"...)



By the way: Wikipedia says that "[m]usicians on Archies' records included guitarists Hugh McCracken and Dave Appell, bassists Chuck Rainey and Joey Macho, keyboard player Ron Frangipane, and drummers Buddy Saltzman and Gary Chester."

These are all EXCELLENT titles for DV or Rhino or Sony to rerelease on some disc format. :D
I suggested some titles to DV. Of course it depends on what sources they can find and titles were based on the tapes I like to listen to. Think I asked for the Steely Dan's, the Jim Croce's, and Joe Walsh. I've been listening to quad and now 5.1 for almost 50 years total. The digital stuff is cool but the analog stuff sends shivers up my back. My 48 year old son and his friends go from speaker to speaker saying; "Did you hear this drum or that guitar riff?" Really fun to watch. They go crazy over " Hocus Pocus"!
