Brilliant, Entertaining Double Album of Great Song Hits with Quadraphonic Mixes!!!

- 09/11/2018

French Composer Michel Legrand is an evergreen genius of musical composition for film, jazz, and recordings.

This album of 20 hit tunes from multiple origins illustrates, brilliantly, his inventive arrangements and a few of his compositions.

In Surround SACD, the mix bounces playfully around the room. The Dutton remastering sounds magnificent! This was once an SQ Quadraphonic Lp, but now sound resplendent in this SACD incarnation.

Please, give us much more...


The preservation of Quadraphonic mixings.

- 03/03/2017

I had 20 Songs Of The Century in a double album Lp issued in my country by Bell Records, I thinks represented by Columbia in this country.

The 1970\'s was a time which quadraphonic was pushed to the unprepared consumer. In due course it flopped badly.

However, we have today an excellent opportunity to get acquainted and possibly enjoy quadraphonic mixings.

I had no idea that this SACD release came from such a mixing, until I began to listen to it and afterwards read he information on the back cover.

I suspect that this mixing is contrary to what many people believe should be the correct front sound stage.

As far as I am concerned I understand that the preservation of the original mixing surpasses all other aspects of the recording process.

And in this particular instance sound quality is primarily outstanding, truly gorgeous.

I was very pleased with the quadraphonic sound of this released regardless of the usually creative arrangements of the composer Michel Legrand.

Highly recommended for and music and quad fans.
