Everyone who is a Zappa completest like I am probably remembers the quadraphonic LPs of Apostrophe (') & Over-Night Sensation in the CD-4 format. However, the Compact Disc can only handle stereo, making four channels impossible by Red Book standards; even if your stereo is four-way, you'll only be hearing the two-channel version. Is there any plan to release the two albums in either SACD or DVD-A format so the four-channel version can be put back out again for purchase?

The LPs were released in stereo as well as quad, yes, but the new CDs are only capable of stereo. My question is if they will be re-releasing the quad versions.

Yes........but you need to find a time machine and set it back to 1974.

It seems like that might be the case ... although I think things like this and 200 Motels take seniority over audio-only copies of Zappa speaking to congress, I'm no ZFT decision maker.

I think that a four-channel DVD-A or SACD could be released. Or I could go on eBay and buy a whole bunch of quad stuff and record the old LP and sell some copies myself ...

But then you have to get those stupid little plastic speakers that sound like shit. Oh but it surrounds you with sound... NVM.
