In these days of expanded editions, legacy editions, and anniversary editions, sometimes we get a labor of love and they get it just right. Many other times a golden opportunity is missed for a surround mix, and sometimes it's hard to understand why. Because misery loves company, I thought I would list a few major laments for these deluxe reisssues, and invite you to add yours....
Peter Gabriel--So Up is one of my most played surround titles. I can't believe he missed the boat on this reissue.
Marvin Gaye--What's Going On The vinyl, alternate mix, etc are great, but the quad mix from CD-4 vinyl days was amazing and would have made this package essential
Who--Quadrophenia only a limited selection of surround tracks... so disappointing
Paul Simon--Graceland A nice authentic surround mix is in the can somewhere and was circulated on the internet a few years ago. It really opened the sound up...where is it?
IQ--Tales from the Lush Attic A Steve Wilson remix but only in stereo?! What's the story there?
David Bowie--Alladin Sane New deluxe reissue but unlike Ziggy, no 5.1 mix! Pass!
Please chime in!
