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.

(Johnny Nash - I Can See Clearly Now) It's just some of the overdubs off to the sides. Try playing it through a QS decoder.
He's not kidding. Lead Vocals are in a three-part harmony, mixed Left-Center-Right. If you filter out the center channel, you can clearly hear each part in hard pan. Drum, Bass, Piano are all in the phantom center. The conga does wander around a bit. Mostly it's in the left channel, but does wander into the center by the second verse. Not sure what goes on with the synth parts but I would bet those are what take up a fair share of the multitrack. But it really does seem that other than the vocal parts and the synth parts, pretty much everything else is up the middle.

It's a funny stereo mix for sure. Not sure it's a fold-down of a Quad mix though. If it was, it was a very unadventurous Quad mix.
