Please be aware that some of the vinyl LPs from this series were recorded digitally in the late 1970's / early 1980's and as such may have been of only 14 bit depth PCM on ...
Thanks for shedding further light on these transfers.
Doubtful this was actually recorded in quad DSD, as it could not be edited unless converted to DxD (32bit 384 khz PCM) and back. More likely this was recorded in DxD and then ...

Better than the Analogue Productions.
Is this remaster panned hard left/right stereo, and is it dry (no reverb added)?
The Analogue Productions remaster added reverb. The original 2-track session tapes, like all of Roy DuNann's recordings of that period, were dry.
"...reverb on Contemporary's recordings was accomplished with mono EMT plate during mastering -- something Roy always advocated should be improved. But by the '80s, most mastering studios did not add reverb during mastering at all and Fantasy was no exception. So, in general, the Fantasy reissues sound dry and tinny because of the lack of reverb and the failure to realize or compensate for the fact that the high end was pre-emphasized."
