If ye search ye shall find a fairly decent DTS upmix.
post #32 of 112
I would love to see early Marillion albums released in MCH, hi-res if possible, but I'd settle for DD/DTS.
post #33 of 112
My top 5 would be:

Led Zep - 3
Alan Parsons - Tales of mystery ...
Pink Floyd - Animals
Dire Straits - Love Over Gold
Vangelis - Heaven and Hell or China
post #34 of 112
Yes, APP Tales would be terrific. Too bad Parsons doesn't own his music catalog, otherwise I suspect we'd have seen surround versions of many more of his albums already.

#3. Benefit - Jethro Tull. I would love Thick as a Brick, but this is more accessible.
#4. Are You Experienced - Barely ahead on the finish line with Electric Ladyland.
#5. Who's Next - Can't leave a list without having the Who.

Great list I would take Metallica the Black Album over No.3.

You're not a fan of the DVD-A?
post #37 of 112
1) Emerson Lake & Palmer - 1st
2) Tangerine Dream - Phaedra
3) Gentle Giant - The Power and the Glory
4) Beatles - White Album
5) Emerson Lake & Palmer - Tarkus
post #38 of 112
Yeah ELP's first album would be awesome, and also Trilogy, not a huge fan of Tarkus though. Also agree with TD's Phaedra , and most of it's early work would be a boon as well.

Any early TD up through Rubycon and Stratosphere would be great, also Logos Live.

There are old quad recordings of Atem and Alpha Centauri that don't sound bad, but could use a new remaster/remixing to 5.1.

Slipped my mind and yes I would. Sub that with ELP best of.
post #41 of 112
Another vote for Traffic, Low Spark of High Heeled Boys.

The other 4:

Beatles Abbey Road
It's a Beautiful Day
David Bowie The Man Who Sold the World (Or Aladdin Sane)
Rick Wakeman 6 Wives of Henry the Eighth.

Honorable mention: Concert for Bangladesh
post #42 of 112
Ok, I can dream right?

Jethro Tull - Minstrel in the Gallery
Todd Rundgren - A Wizard a True Star
Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Blue Oyster Cult - Secret Treaties
Hendrix - Electric Ladyland

Just a few that I would love to have in surround lossless!
post #43 of 112
I second "It's a Beautiful Day".

Another worthy mention would be "A Space in Time", by Ten Years After.
post #44 of 112
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Madonna - Like A Prayer
Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique
Duran Duran - debut S/T and Rio
post #45 of 112
1. Joe's Garage - Frank Zappa
2. Quadrophenia (the ENTIRE album) - the Who
3. The Wall - Pink Floyd
4. 2112 - Rush
5. One Hot Minute - Red Hot Chili Peppers
post #46 of 112
I would want:
1) Meddle by Pink Floyd, although Animals would certainly be welcome.
2) Graceland, by Paul Simon (not prog-rock, but would make a good MC release).
3) I think several of the albums by Renaissance would make nice MC releases.

Close to the Edge, Thick as a Brick, and the entire Quadrophenia, as have been previously discussed. I just noticed somebody mentioned Eno, I would be very into Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy...

I also think Blues for Allah, by the Grateful Dead, would be interesting. I wonder how Live Dead would sound in MC, although it probably wasn't recorded in enough tracks to make an effective MC mix.
post #47 of 112
Live Dead was a 16 track recording.

post #49 of 112
Steely Dan Aja Royal Scam

Miles Davis Bitches Brew

Aimee Mann I'm With Stupid underrated album that would sound great in surround
post #50 of 112
Here's more of my wish list:

Disraeli Gears – Cream
Surfing with the Alien – Joe Satriani
Some Friendly – Charlatans UK
Revolver – The Beatles (any Beatles would do)
Happy Trails – Quicksilver Messenger Service
Bridge of Sighs – Robin Trower
Santana III – Santana
Venus and Mars – Wings
Van Halen’s First – Van Halen

7 Boston 1st, Don't Look Back, 3rd Stage

This was just a short list off the top of my head. I'd buy Rust In Peace if it came out. Or any other Megadeth title that came out. I have Peace Sells on DVD Audio.
post #54 of 112
Just finished listening to Alan Parson's "A Valid Path" on 5.1 DTS. It was outstanding! Let's get some of his stuff ouot on SACD (or BluRay or DVD-A)

Although, I have to say, the 5.1 DTS sounded SO good, that I wonder if I have the ears to discern something even better. I am reeling.

there is a Quadraphonic transfer of the Rick Wakeman SWoHtE..

there is also a Quadraphonic transfer of Bitches Brew..

+1 for Moving Waves-Focus.

Even though most of the classic Yes albums always make these types of lists I'd like to specifically mention Going For The One. Might be my favorite Yes album but my heart always reverts back to Close To The edge.
post #57 of 112
Close To The Edge- Yes. It's staggering this isn't out in surround. I'd also vote for Tales from Topographic Oceans, but there's no way that would ever be done.
All Steely Dan. Other than Gaucho which has been done in surround a couple of times.
In a Glass House- Gentle Giant. Amazing prog album.
Jefferson Airplane- Volunteers, Crown of Creation or Surrealistic Pillow. Pick one
How about some '60 psychedelia. The United States of America or Ultimate Spinach would be great.
post #58 of 112
Several that I would like have already been mentioned: Steely Dan, Pink Floyd, and Dire Straits.

How about:
Supertramp: Crime of the Century
Supertramp: Even in the Quietest Moments
Supertramp: Breakfast in America
Alan Parsons Project: Tales of Mystery and Imagination
post #59 of 112
Another vote for Supertramp.

I agree. Especially Crime Of The Century which would be incredible in 5.1 on any format.
