    Too weird for me to enjoy. It’s a shame the Jokers moved away from the earlier Pink Floyd and Hawkwind inspired style, because I enjoyed that. There’s plenty going on in the quad mix, which Phoenix has brought out nicely.

    Expect you already know but there’s a pink floyd box set being released in November with the unreleased Echoes in quad (though unfortunately appears to be the one song only rather than the entire album it was taken from)

      Indeed, perhaps that is all there is? Perhaps we might learn more nearer the time, but the price is OTT.

      Maybe only that one song was finished properly?

      On the forum that shall not be named PF associate Andy Jackson has confirmed that Echoes was the only track mixed in quad and that the mix was not particularly good – it was done just for a press conference after all.

      They have missed another opportunity with this box – Pompeii has been included but is a new 5.1 mix rather than the original quad.

      The Pink Floyd box sets always have OTT prices. At least they’ve included what there is of Echoes in quad. As for Pompeii being remixed in 5.1, maybe they’re not aware of Pompeii rescued from the 4 track magnetic 35mm film print? (DS217 and also available elsewhere with different processing.) Or perhaps PF don’t like using unofficial sources and if they haven’t got a master they won’t use it? Different bands and record companies have different attitudes to that sort of thing.

    Loving the surround on this. For maximum pleasure, I believe, It really requires being in an altered state. 🙂

    Previewing this in stereo on Apple music right now. This should be interesting combined with the pain killers Im still taking from that neck surgery!

    I had to remind myself of how to make donations! (using UK bank account transfer, since there are no costs with that).

      Not as bad as how to do the decoding, etc LOL

        Thought I was the only one having memory issues. Returning to CB releases after the Captain’s hiatus has been a challenge. None of the varied processes I use have written instructions. The methods needed are just buried somewhere in my head and it took some doing to resurrect. Surprised I haven’t made more mistakes than usual. Just hope everyone is enjoying the music.

          I turn mine into dts wav files for easier use. There are several steps and I’ve learned, the hard way, that my memory ain’t what it used to be. It’s all written down, in case I forget again. 🙂

      LOL Im glad Im not the only one. I was sure I had messed up at first.(apologies my apostrophe key is inop)

    Also, my condolences for your loss.
