1973-09-13
Golders Green Hippodrome
London, UK

Lineage: 3-source merge "Royalties at the Hippodrome" FLAC > WAV 32-bit > Adobe Audition 3.0 (with slightly modified SQ-script originally from http://www.quadraphonicquad.com/) > WAV 16-bit > FLAC level 8

This is a quadraphonic version of this concert, SQ decoded using Pittrek's 3-source merge
called "Royalties at the Hippodrome". The files in this share is divided into two folders;
"front" and "rear". In the folder called "front" you'll find 14 stereo flac files which
contains the front channels, and in the folder called "rear", the files are stereo flac
files containing the rear channels. Convert this to your preferred surround format.
I hope you'll enjoy this share, and all thanks to the persons involved in making the
original files available, including pittrek.

regards
teddi2002

Sorry, but it seems to me that this is not properly decoded surround. To be honest, I haven't had much time to go into detail while hearing your share, but  It shouldn't sound like this at all! (believe me, I have owned an ol' quad system for most of my youth).

Maybe the decoding matrix is not right or the SQ-encoded information was damaged during the remastering process by Stark (I got the name right this time, Pittrek!) - or not even present in the source he worked on. Definetely, something is wrong with that one. Please, check the rear channels of Father To Son at 3:24, when the edit in the traditional source begins, and you will hear a quite an abrupt sound field change.

If that's the case, then maybe someone could start with this version -

First of all many thanks to everybody involved in this project! Hopefully somebody, sometimes will share a proper version of this concert. 

By the way: Has somebody listened to the "Hernansnow" vocal reconstruction? Two songs (Ogre Battle & Son And Daughter snippet) can be downloaded in mp3 format from is site (links below)

I won't say that this sounds great, and to be honest I don't like the sound, but at least he has brought the vocal much more in front....

No offence, but I don't even want to listen to anything Hernan Snow does.  All he does is leak out lossy copies of his work and adds a pretty cover.  Until he actually converses with the community to do things for the greater good, I refuse to take him seriously.

Wow, Freddie is VERY loud on that version of Ogre Battle!! As is John. And Brian is very quiet! I suggest a matrix using both versions :)

I would love to hear a final result but: "Convert this to your preferred surround format." stops me. Could you please help me?

Did anyone turn this decode into anything playable? Seperate front and rear stereo FLACs aren't much use. There are only really two things I can think of which are playable: i) a 4.0 FLAC (my Oppo 95 BD player plays 5.1 flacs OK) or ii) a DVD-Audio 4.0 encode. Unless either of these is produced I can't see the point.

Did anyone ever do this ie. SQ decode before Stark's remastering?

Nope. He used an inferior source as well, as it was many years ago before better copies came out.

Who used an inferior source? Pittrek for the 3 source compilation? Everywhere I can find on QZ it is the Pittrek 3 source compilation using the Stark remaster that is referred to, and that is the one in the Pittrek Best of the Best collection. It is also the one the first post claimed to use for the SQ decode.

The reason I opened this can of worms again is I'm quite keen on surround music.

As a newcomer I'm finding it very difficult to know which is the preferred copy of things. All sorts of new versions pop up all the time and it is difficult to keep track when wading through years of history on QZ. And the various file sharing site download links are broken so often I rarely bother to try using them, persevering with the torrents seems to work better.

I meant that about Stark's remaster. It was done many years ago, and better versions have emerged since.

Indeed, sometimes it's hard to figure out which is the best version, as it can come down to taste in the end. It's best to give them all a spin and make your choice.

Plenty to pick from:
