Sibelius- Finlandia and Tone Poems-Cond. Herbert Von Karajan Quadraphonic DTS-CD
Posted By : empanadilla | Date : 02 Dec 2021 11:53:21 | Comments : 0

SIBELIUS "Finlandia" (Tone Poems): Berliner Philharmoniker cond. Herbert Von Karajan (1976)
DTS CD (cue + wav) | Channels: 4.0 | 44100Hz | 4 x 100 MB + 78 MB | Covers included
Genre: Classical | Source: SQ encoded CD | Label: EMI

Most of these EMI recordings from the 1970's were released ONLY as SQ encoded LPs and CD, since their compatibility made them totally enjoyable in Stereo.
The Von Karajan sessions were legendary because the Maestro himself used to assist and produce these Quadraphonic mixdowns-he was VERY MUCH into Multichannel.

Mahavishnu Orchestra-Between Nothingness and Eternity QUADRAPHONIC MIX DVD-A only + DTS CD (1973)
DVD-A Only ISO + DTS CD (Image + Front & Back Covers) | 96/24 4.0 LPCM | DTS: 44.1/16
ISO 13 x 190,7 MB + 119 MB | DTS CD: 2 x 200MB + 127 KB
Genre: Jazz Fusion | Label: Columbia CQ-32766 | Source: SQ LP

Between Nothingness and Eternity is the first live album and last with the original line-up, released in 1973. It was recorded live at the Schaefer Music Festival, held in Central Park, New York on Aug 17 and 18, 1973. It features the material from the then unreleased album which surfaced in 1999, as "The Lost Trident Sessions".
For being a NYC audience they behaved quite well, not being very noisy or rowdy. The Music here is Mahavishnu at its best.

This is the best sounding transfer from a Quadraphonic tape (Q8) that I have EVER HEARD!
This AudioSpectrum is really something.... AND , it can stand shoulder to shoulder with ANY commercial release...especially since labels are forgetting Hi Resolution Multichannel Audio!

ENJOY THIS "ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH" ON QUADRAPHONIC!!!

Excellent effort by Legendary Group!
(from wik*)The World is a Ghetto is an album released by the band War late in year 1972. In 2003, the album was ranked number 449 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
The album was also made available in a 4-channel surround sound (quadraphonic) mix in the 8-track tape format (United Artists UA-DA178-H)[1]. The quad mix has not been released legally in a digital format.(end wik*quote)

Guaranteed Fun from the Great AudioSpectrum!
Herbie Hancock "Sextant" Quad SQ LP to DTS CD 4.0

Herbie Hancock-"Sextant"(1972)
DTS CD (cue + wav) | Channels: 4.0 | 44100Hz | 2x 200 MB
Genre: Jazz/Avant-Garde | Label:Columbia CQ-32212 | Source: SQ LP | RS.com

Now , this is a welcome surprise. Before listening to this LP, I had no idea Mr. Hancock was creating this kind of music back then. This is Avant-Garde with some jazz thrown in-VERY left field when compared to his 80's stuff. This LP was a very bad pressing so it took many weeks of de-clicking restoration, done by hand of course (SQ LP rear channel info waveforms are helical and therefore , the algorithms of the declicking programs are not programmed for these kind of signals), so please enjoy.
Also, as in all of my conversions , Noise reduction was NOT used.

Genre: Rock | Label:Columbia PCQ-34165 | Source: SQ LP | RS.com

Their best Quad mix from the 70s, featuring circling galloping horses, some out of tune background singing and plenty of illegal substance in your face guitar solos, which , unfortunately has taught us that those were the real Aerosmith, not the post "Permanent Vacation" group-We love ya Steven!...Enjoy!

(btw, a Hi Res version is coming soon - k'n k)

Welcome to the Underrated Genius of Thomas Dolby.

"Aliens ate my Buick" is a classic. Some people didn't buy this thinking that it was a soundtrack for a movie! This is where all of his efforts came together and he batted a Grand Slam. Worthy mention is Terry Jackson (RIP), an awesome bass player who made the group sound incredible.

Welcome to the Underrated Genius of Thomas Dolby.

The 2nd CD sounds as if it was released with the Record Company rushing him to release it. It's very hectic and way more serious than the 1st one. Still good , but something is missing...

Ollie Hallsall is a guitar genius. ALthough a multi instrumentalist, his fluid guitar work , which plays "saxophone solos" instead of your clichéd guitar licks will blow you away. In this one Ollie, the Pisces that he was, plays mostly piano...
But the solo in the 1st Punk song ever "Loud Green Song", is worth the price...

In this one , they let their hair down. It shows them more like they REALLY were onstage: a bunch of "Looners"

Welcome to the Underrated Genius of Thomas Dolby.

This 4th CD finds Mr. Dolby in a very sombre mood because of the loss of his great bass player (anyway, what the hell was Terry doin' touring with...Reba McIntire???? Didn't he know that Country Music is the music that leads to most suicides? We miss him, though). It is still a very interesting CD and also has the collaboration of another departed artist; Ofra Haza. Not quite being dead , but more or less zombie, there's also a solo from Eddie Van Halen.

Welcome to the Underrated Genius of Thomas Dolby.

This 1st CD is a lot of fun. He is basically trying to find a "style" and goes from the ultra famous "She blinded me with science" to the dark "One of our Submarines".
