THE BEST OF THE DOORS is the 2nd most common of Quadradiscs, behind, obviously, ALOHA FROM HAWAII VIA SATELLITE. Unlike that one, however, it's not Elvis, there are plenty around and not on eBay for obscene sums, and clean pressings are easy to find. ED
Speaking of this, the latter Aloha pressings are quite excellent! I was lucky enough to get a sealed copy for $10 on ebay. What a steal
So I was enticed when I found out they put out a 5.1 DVD Video of the concert. I figured, "oh boy, that cool mix of American Trilogy with no issues" Dissapointment! Whoever mixed that DVD obviously never listened to the Quad LP to find out placement of insturments and that Elvis entourage. Flutes and guitars in the wrong place, The Jordinaires in fron istead of that cool over your right shoulder effect, what the hell?? Thats why I am very leary of DVD-A 5.1 and SACD 5.1. They apparently have no reference and do what they want in mixing despite in the Elvis case, A video to reference where things were...
