Editor's note: Much ado has been made of how terrible the transfer is of Santana's "Abraxas" to multi-channel. Who's responsible.....David Frangioni.What's he doing now? Apparently; he's running a string of installation outfits outfitting the stars and super rich with home theaters and home studios. I wonder if he uses his own copy of "Abraxas" to calibrate his installations....lol...?!
