When SACD arrived I really thought it would be the format of choice for HiFi fans. However, the internet and downloads changed the way many people started to consume music and the SACD format never really took off.
This is such a shame as there are some albums like Avalon by Roxy Music for example which sound just incredible in 5.1 on SACD. The other thing is that multi-channel music was tried once before back in the 1970s as Quadraphonic and many of these QUAD mixes were unique and very different for the stereo mixes. So I was very pleased recently when I discovered Dutton Vocalion Records who specialise in reissuing Quad Mixes on SACD.
In this video, I look at the following SACDs from Dutton Vocalion Records.
Rick Derringer: All American Boy / Spring Fever
Mott The Hoople: Mott / The Hoople / All The Young Dudes
Bachman Turner Overdrive: Bachman Turner Overdrive / 2nd Album
Deodato : Prelude / 2
