  1. Thanks very much, this sounds great! It gives us a fresh listening perspective on a significant breakthrough album from a music legend.

    Great sound quality here, and interesting use of quad channels. There’s at least as much lead vocals in the rears as there is fronts, but it works because there are instruments in the fronts and some reverb on the lead vocals. I can hear a tiny bit of channel cross talk in the last track, but considering the track is just John Denver reading a poem with no instruments at all it is very revealing so this is no criticism of the transfer but a comment on the nature of Q8. It’s always going to be a problem with the format, usually masked by the music.

    Great stuff Captain!

    Absolutely adore this release. Soundscape is fantastic. Was shocked, actually, considering how muddy the Harry Nilsson one was, both from a Q8.

      Based on other Q8 releases I’ve got, I think the quality of the tapes varies a great deal. Whether it’s just the tapes or also how much effort they put into mastering them I don’t know. I’ve got some transfers so good you’d swear they’re not Q8, and others that are quite muddy, hissy and high frequency restrited.
