I ended up playing the disc all evening! I have the unmastered version of Cafe Blue (based on your original post when it came out) and don't have the MFSL version to compare, however may not be missing anything based on your comment.

Would be great to have them all reissued as they are fantastic recordings!

There are some Silverline disc's however that are pretty good. Motorhead: Ace Of Spades and their collection of Inside the Music series for example.

There are other discs like Blues Traveler: Truth Be Told where the surround mix is somewhat tame (helped by channel level adjustments and AtMOS DSU's) but the stereo side of things is really good as compared to it's CD counterpart.

But yea you're right, the vast majority of the Silverline product is pretty terrible. I think the worst surround disc I own is Sileverlines release of Dokken's Erase the Slate. And that's saying a lot because I got quite a few stinkers in the collection.

I've got a Richard Thompson album on DualDisc, The Old Kit Bag, which isn't bad, but nothing special, as far as fidelity and the surround mix go. The worst surround disc I own is that African Herbsman, no two-channel mix, horrible surround mix, and sounds like a third generation cassette dub. I think the only other Silverline DVD-A I have is a Jane Monheit album which again has no two-channel mix, a horrible surround mix, and less fidelity than the CD.
I may have painted with too broad a brush, but I would check carefully to make sure whatever your buying is one of the good ones because most of what I've heard from them was clearly produced by people who did not care at all about the quality of their product.

No. Acoustic Sounds has some from the Seattle Symphony and audite has multichannel downloads for its own products. There may be some other audiophile labels that do as well.

Yes, I agree. Many great multichannel mixes out there that can be hard to access. Not sure why it would be such a challenge to put them up for download, but I guess it is. Linn never put any of their multichannel mixes up for download, that I'm aware of, even though they have their own download service, and they seem to have stopped producing them since they've stopped releasing SACDs.
One has to presume that eventually the multichannel mixes from the majors will be available for download, just will we live long enough to see it. Also, you can be fairly sure that whenever they do the price structure will be so obnoxious at first that people will still be scrabbling around for the old discs.

It's odd how much of a niche thing that it is in the age of surround sound. But I guess with the advent of streaming and ear buds those that care about sound fidelity are in the small minority.

Meant to say that it has been reported that Universal (if memory serves) has remixed a bunch of tracks in Dolby Atmos. Wasn't clear if those were whole albums or how and when they would be made available.

Multi-channel makes little difference to people who don't actually sit down and listen to music, and very, very few do.
As for quality, it has always been the case. When I was a teenager I knew people whose music collections consisted of songs recorded off the radio, about a decade ago I was surprised to discover there were people (I would suspect many, many people) whose music collection consists of YouTube playlists. I was visiting a friend a few days ago I've known for decades, music has always been a big part of his life, he's introduced me tons of great stuff, but he's pretty much satisfied with YouTube, mp3s of any quality, etc. Really the only reason he was getting vinyl, cassettes, CDs was because that was the only way it was available, and again this is a real music lover. I would suspect most people are indifferent to whether music is in mono, two-channel, or multi-channel, even those that can tell the difference.
In addition, for surround, having to have all those speakers, and have them set-up correctly has always been a problem. There was the notion that multi-channel home theatre set-ups would lead to a solid presence for multi-channel music, but that hasn't proved to be the case. But, they haven't gone away, which is something. You might have to get the Collector's Edition to get it, but at least they perceive some sort of market there (and, I'm sure there is creator push there, some musicians want their music available that way).
I'm hopeful that soundbars and the novelty of Atmos might, at least, lead to a little bump in availability in the not so distant future. Streaming delivery may also be helpful in it persisting, the cost of admission for the media is a not insignificant issue. Even someone who might appreciate surround and have the equipment to make use of it might balk at paying $40 more for something than the two-channel (and, I'm talking for regular releases here, not Collector's Editions).

A lot of good points there. I have been a music lover all my life, man I thought everyone recorded music off the radio lol. Those were the days.

But really I do get it. I'm just now at a place in life where I can invest a modest amount of money into an audio setup. But I am happier with low quality music than nothing.

Think we're pretty much on the same page on all that. Definitely recorded stuff off the radio, back in the day. Not so much the top 40 stuff, but was lucky enough to have access to what was not yet called "Alternative" music late at night. Often put a tape in as I went to bed so I could listen to at least some of what I would miss while sleeping. Mostly that got recorded over but had a couple tapes of stuff that caught my attention and got saved, and added to tape-to-tape. Definitely not high fidelity, but highly enjoyable.

Nice, I got this one a few months ago and really like it. I'm pretty fond of most quad mixes, which I find to be more consistent (and consistently good) than modern 5.1 mixes, and this one is the same. I need to listen to it again soon.

Count me as another quadra-phile and have been one for lo these past 40+ years!

Most of my quad hardware is SANSUI -- all of it still functional, all of it still eminently capable of pleasingly 'de-coding' out-of-phase/ambient 2-channel recording content -- but now 'n' then I'll fire up a KENWOOD quad amp or an Electro-Voice decoder just for comparison purposes.

When the 'Audio Fidelity' label began releasing the original 4.0 quad mixes on SACD I was ecstatic!

Among the many they released that way, which I own, the standing favorites are:

LaBelle "Nightbirds"
Loggins & Messina "Full Sail"
Guess Who "The Best of the Guess Who"
Bread "The Best of Bread"
Various Artists [Dylan, Santana, Nilsson et al] "The Collection"

Agreed: 5.1 mixes are often compelling listening BUT...
Those who experienced (and remember) the DISCRETE quad original releases, on tape or CD-4, often find 5.1 somehow...lacking.

Hard to explain, really, but case-in-point:

After spending a minor fortune acquiring the complete Moody Blues SACD catalog, re-mastered in 5.1, I found more than a few cuts that disappointed me.
Not that they were in any way 'bad' just nowhere near as DRAMATIC as remembered.
(Yeah, that even included from the relatively lo-fi 8-track quad tapes.)

And on the vinyl/optical DISC fronts...

My SACD 5.1 Pink Floyd "Dark Side Of The Moon" *IS* marvelous.
But the virgin vinyl SQ-encoded British pressing I owned was far more dramatic.
As was the price it commanded when I finally parted with it.

LOL...Already Dead. I have some of that darker music in my regular rotation

I got the SACD-MCH (Geffen Records)...looking forward to giving it some spins!

Nice, I have the blu-ray version. Is this one of the rare surround albums that was released on all three major formats (SACD, DVD, blu-ray)?

I agree it's a nice 5.1 mix, but I can't listen to it for too long or I'll fall asleep.
