For Elliot - Toy Matinee 5.1

Hi Elliot -

You old pal Bruce Maddocks turned me on to your surround mix of "Toy Matinee" (the late Kevin Gilbert + Patrick Leonard, for you folks who aren't familiar with this record). I think it's the best example I've ever heard of using surround mixing creatively without seriously messing with the original mixer's vision (Bill Bottrell as I recall). Do you approach all your surround mixes this way, or do you sometimes ignore the original stereo mix and just do what sounds right to you in the new context?
