I searched here and elsewhere and could find no comprehensive list of titles released by Sony Japan (and sublabels) in their 7" mini-LP format. Of special interest, of course, are releases in the series with included multichannel mixes, so I've decided to start a list here. Future announcements/releases may be added to this thread. Moderators: please help me by editing this first post to keep the list up-to-date. Here are the releases known to exist:

Billy Joel:
Beck, Bogert & Appice:
Carole King:
Herbie Hancock:
  • Headhunters (4.0 vintage mix)
Jeff Beck:
Miles Davis:
Santana:
  • Lotus Complete (4.0 vintage mix plus new mixes for bonus tracks)
  • Santana (4.0 vintage mix).
  • Abraxas (4.0 vintage mix)

Has anyone heard one of these remaster’s that sound bad? I now have 5 of them and they all just sound great! Man I love these

I thought Jeff Beck's Wired release was the original 4.0 release and not a derived 5.1. Am I wrong?
It's the 4.0 mix, but they created a fake center by summing all four channels to mono and lowering that about 10 dB relative to the other channels. I would guess the LFE channel is that same mono summation run through a low-pass filter. It seems they've stopped doing this as the last few quad titles in the series (Bitches Brew, Live-Evil, Santana) are authored in 5.0 with an empty center.
