This is a quad disc, but I'm a simple guy and I can only comment on the stereo side of things.

This sounds pretty good. Very analogue sounding and not at all compressed - good sound staging to boot.

My only grumble sound wise is that the very top end vocal sounds are a little bit smudged at times. Though this is not unknown from tapes of this era.

My other grumble though relates to the twofer presentation. In this instance we have one good album (All American Boy) and one so so one (spring fever). Not really a bonus to have the dead wood along for the ride. You can get around it by programming in the tracks you want to hear, but in this case the tracks on All American Boy segue into each other so it don't work quite so well as a work around in this instance.

All American Boy is my third Vocalion purchase. Love the bass on Rock n Roll Hoochie Koo in the quad version, cannot have too much bass on this number. Also want to give Vocalion props for the write ups in the "liner notes" extensive back story and history in all of my purchases to date.
