The Doobie Brothers / Quadio box

Blu-ray audio box set featuring Quad and stereo mixes

The Doobie Brothers recent ‘Quadio’ box set will soon be more widely available for fans to purchase.

The box set – which had a limited release earlier last month – features original quadraphonic mixes of 1972’s Toulouse Street (the band’s second album, which features ‘Listen to the Music’), 1973 follow-up The Captain & Me (which includes ‘Long Train Running’), What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits (1974) , and Stampede (1975).

For this collection, all four albums have been mastered using the original four-track Quad mixes. It’s important to emphasise that these are are blu-ray audio discs, so you’ll need a blu-ray player linked up to a ‘theatre’ style surround sound set-up to enjoy the 4.0 Quad mixes although for each album there is also a high res (192/24) mix as well.

The four discs come in replicas of the original vinyl record sleeves and are all packaged together in a clamshell box.

Four years ago, Rhino put out a Chicago Quadio box and now out-of-print, that goes for extraordinary amounts of money, so you have been warned!

The Doobie Brothers Quadio box gets a wider release on 6 November 2020.
