    Do not offer for free, offer for sale, offer for trade, or request copies or files of copyrighted material - no matter how rare or unavailable to the public they might be. We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort. Any posts of this sort will be deleted without notification.

    Please try to avoid discussions that pit one format against another. Hint for new users: make liberal use of the search facilities here at QuadraphonicQuad. Our message base is an incredibly rich resource of detailed information on virtually all topics pertaining to surround-sound. You will be surprised at what you can find with a little digging!

Maybe this was already discussed, but I just read in Elton's autobiography that John Reid had him sell off all rights to his master recordings, past and future, so he has no control over them nor gets royalties for the use of any of it (including radio). He quickly grew to regret the decision, because after Reid took a share, as well as attorneys and the tax man, the sum of compensation wasn't adequately significant.

Yeah, I suppose it also means he has no pull in getting these precious recordings out of a corporate vault. (Of all the stupid things one could do...) We're screwed.

you're someone else,
do yourself a favour
the meal ticket does the rest.."
