The Sound Of Stereo Today

The Sounds of Stereo Today CB016

I wish to offer a sampler Q8 from RCA titled strangely enough ‘The Sound of Stereo Today’ or ‘The Sounds of Stereo Today’. It seems comparing front and back covers there is some confusion. Referring to a 4 channel tape as stereo RCA appears uncertain what it is. Fish or foul. That’s OK as it is 1971 again and hearing the theme from ‘Mission Impossible’ in quad is worth the price of admission. Everything else is icing. Your mileage may vary. Enjoy  CB

    I was pleasantly surprised at how great the selections are. The flow from track to track works rather well. The mixes are really nicely done and the fidelity of the tape is pretty good. Thanks for sharing this one!

    Geat stuff, I like many of the tracks on here but my favourite is Mission Impossible. There’s some great brass playing and the whole piece is just infectious. Dig those snarling trombones, incredible low notes front left (I think there may be some saxes thickening the notes up).

    Quality wise this is a fantastic transfer, if I didn’t know it was a Q8 I wouldn’t be able to tell. The only thing that gives it away a little is the high frequency response, but I’ve heard that on CDs from early 1970s masters so even that isn’t a sure sign. Track 9 is a bit more compromised with background hiss and a bit of clipping, but it’s still a cut above many Q8s and just sounds like analogue tape not Q8 in particular.

    Many thanks Captain, this is a good one!
