    Quincy Jones was hitting his commercial peak as a producer at this time. I’m sure the master tapes for his work 1979 – 85 must be prized possessions of the record companies, and 5.1 must be a realistic possibility for many of his albums. I’d quite like to here The Dude in 5.1.

    I would love to see Audio Fidelity reissue this on SACD. I wonder if a multi-channel mix was ever done?
