Not sure if Rhino could gain access but apparently they’re mostly in the can already - waiting to be released!
ALL the Elton John titles are now controlled by Universal Music Group and Thriller [SONY label] is supposedly going to be released this year in Dolby Atmos on blu ray [hopefully it'll be the short Thriller video and an album remix but not certain].

Allman Brothers - Melissa
America - Sister Golden Hair
Aretha Franklin - Chain of Fools
Arlo Guthrie - Lovesick Blues
Arteha Franklin - Respect

Let's not forget The Blues Brothers soundtrack! That was listed as "coming soon".I wonder if Warner/Rhino actually kept logs of what WAS actually remixed into 4.0/5.1 and NEVER released like Joni Mitchell's Blue, Ladies of the Canyon, Neil Young's After The Gold Rush, James Taylor's Sweet Baby James, CSNY: Deja Vu, The Cars: Heartbeat City, Frank Sinatra's September of My Years, Madonna's Greatest Hits, etc, etc.
Perhaps Foraging Rhino [Steve] could shed some light as speculation has been circulating for years of classic titles that have surround mixes and have never been commercially released in any format?
And why artists won't consent to release these treasures via stand alone BD~As remains a mystery as these unreleased remixes are not making $$$$ by languishing in the vaults and could be a further source of revenue for both them and Rhino/Warner!
As we're [sadly] nearing the end of physical disc replication and analogue tape is hardly an 'archival medium' better to get these releases out than to risk losing them forever!

True about the licensing, and but QUADIO series is based on the old quad releases, not the newer DVD-A's, released or unreleased. At any rate, it doesn't really matter because it ain't happening, unless you make a disc yourself for yourself from your old WEA Quad stuff.
As far as you know, Jon, were those 'announced' DVD~As ever ACTUALLY remixed into 5.1? It does seem strange that they would announce them without actually having done the remixing as they were listed as COMING SOON.
I don't think a lot of them were finished. We know that "Graceland" was, and I asked Graham Nash about "Deja Vu", and he said basically "It's on my list and when I get some time I am going to do it" - yeah, right. Guess not. If you can't find an article in a mag somewhere about an engineer working on the mix in question, I would have to say it does not exist.
One exception is Jackson Browne, "The Naked Ride Home". I believe that was finished and ready to go but the album did not sell as a CD and WB probably figured it was not worth the costs involved to press up and market a DVD-A of the title, or maybe they did and they all went into the landfill!
Maybe Steve could confirm, but he might not be able to speak about this.

But doesn't an Elliot Scheiner 5.1 mix of the Cars debut album exist, as well?
LS: Are there any classic recordings that you want the opportunity to mix in surround?
Scheiner: Well, I'm doing the whole Steely Dan catalog — that'll be fun - and the Cars' first record…
