About

From QuadraphonicQuad:

In 1996, when Mobile Fidelity founder Brad Miller re-energized the surround sound music scene with DTS and the Millennium decoder, one of the first quad titles he went back and resurrected was Band On the Run. First released in a standard sized jewel case, the new technology DTS CD allowed people with modern surround systems to hear the quad mixes that had until then been “lost” in the dead format wasteland of consumer electronics. Once the DVD-Audio format entered the marketplace, the DTS CD was repackaged in the larger jewel case – however it was NEVER released as a true DVD-Audio disc. All of the larger case discs were still DTS CDs.

In it’s initial release, purchasers found out right off the bat that something was wrong with the music when they discovered the first three guitar notes of the intro to the title song were missing from the CD. Some thought their decoders were slow to activate. Word spread around the internet and it was confirmed that the first three notes were indeed missing from the CD.

In a most amazing turn of events, it was discovered that almost 7 years later, the missing notes were restored and a new disc was pressed and released. These are the yellow discs. One thing to note, however, is that you can be assured that if you find a Band on the Run in the smaller jewel case, you will get the purple uncorrected CD. However, should you find a sealed copy in the larger jewel case, there is no way to tell if you’ll end up with the original purple CD, or the corrected yellow CD.
