    I recently made the mistake of spending a lot of money for a used DVD-A of this album. That was before I joined the blog. This sounds just as good, if not better.Again I am amazed at the front-to-rear separation Odee has achieved.

    I liked what your surround did for several of the tracks, especially Movin’ In and Fancy Colors. CTA and Chicago III were just all around better efforts from these guys. I saw on Al Kooper’s site that Chicago was the brass used for the Buckinghams, an old sixties group, before they got their own claim to fame. Kind of a Drag? Perhaps not…

    I liked parts of this when I could drag my attention back to it. But mainly this is far, far too long to sustain my interest in this sort of middle of the road music. The last three tracks were more engaging for some reason.

    How many LPs was this on? It feels like three.

      This was a double album, although i guess if your not into Chicago it may well seem like a triple album LOL

    Does anyone know if the Quad LP differs from the Q8 in mix or sound quality? I’ve only heard the Q8 and it’s a little muddy

      Mix wise it’s the same, as to sound quality… personally i’d prefer the SQ mix, but then i am a little biased…. LOL 😉

    Thank you! I was wondering if you were going to unload the Chicago titles as part of DS400 milestone, but I’m happy to have this now!

      It would be heavy going to put out the remainingg Chicago titles by the time we get to DS400, but the series will continue, i promise.

    I have the Rhino 5.1 DVD-A which is marvelous, but I’ve never heard the original quad. This should be interesting…

      Never understood why they bothered re-mixing II, V & X for those DVD-A relelases

        What, and frighten a bunch of people into thinking their sub and center channel speakers didn’t work lol? And, everyone’s knows 6 speakers are better than four, right? Right? 🙂

      I’m finally getting around to getting this one, if only to compare to the DVD-A which sonically blows away 45 years of muddy bad mix memories that I have of every vinyl and CD version I’ve ever heard of this great album. I shall report my findings!
