“More of this kind, please!”

- 12/13/2016

The “Super Audio Compact Disc” (SA-CD) released on the Vocalion label exceeds my expectations! All tracks were taken from the original tapes, licensed by Sony. The channel separation is superb. I heard voices and instruments, especially in the rear channels, I had never heard before. I did have both albums on multi-channel CDs (DTS format), but they featured 4.0 sound only like the original releases. Besides, for “Love Will Keep Us Together” the source of my DTS disc was a Quad LP, because a Quad 8-track cartridge was never released. This super audio CD has 5.1 sound, which also makes your subwoofer of your home theatre system work. Excellent! And so are the liner notes by Tony Clayden, which give evidence of profound research on Ray and his career. Don’t complain about missing liner notes from the original album releases, because there weren’t any. The price is moderate. The disc can be played on all conventional CD players, and also features the stereo versions of both albums in fine quality. I hope the sales will be strong enough to encourage Vocalion to release more of Ray’s Quadraphonic albums, such as “The Happy Sound” and “TV Themes”.

Thank you so much for releasing these quadraphonic albums on SACD and doing a very good job on it. Ray Conniff released most of his 70\'s albums on quadraphonic. Please release more titles. I would like to recommend the following title pairings: Harmony/The Way We Were, Send In The Clowns/TV Themes, Love Story/Godfather, Alone Again/I Can See Clearly Now.

As stated in a previous review, I remember listening to these albums as stereo (didn\'t have a Quad set-up back then). Now hearing them as they were intended to be heard, it is incredible. You are placed in the middle of the chorus and orchestra. The sound literally surrounds you. This SACD format gives you the original 4-channels of the Quadraphonic recordings. I hope there will be more. Conniff\'s 70\'s album, I believe, all had Quad pressings. Something to look forward to.
