  • Or, the forum for the old vinyl and quad 8's and reels. It's far from complete--there are many hundreds of non-classical titles yet to post--but a few hundred are here with more to come; I pretty much add 'em when I'm in the mood, or one of you good folks PM me with a request to add something. The best way to use this forum is to go to the bottom of the page and look for something alphabetically by title. The last name of an artist is first where applicable, as in Simon, Paul. The Guess Who are listed as Guess Who, The, to facilitate finding them easily. Soundtracks, Original Cast, and Various Artists are listed as such first, then the album title. A few classical titles are here, with Classical as a header (or will be if I ever weed them in). The idea is to be able to alphabetize and then click, page by page, an A-Z (forward or backward) of what it up at the moment. To do this effectively, remember to click 'Beginning' in the left box, 'Thread title' to its right, so that all titles will list. No titles are ever removed, and all are accessible, and nothing (to date) has been lost in the ether. Just as vinyl lasts a lot longer than its creators could have imagined, so has this board, so far. We're small but we ain't goin' anywhere! FWIW, most of these mixes are long out of print, and only available digitally through like-minded audiophiles--some easy to find, some tough, some perhaps impossible at this time due to rarity or someone just hasn't gotten around to making a transfer from the original sources. That's too bad, but the record companies in the new millennium have no interest in reissuing these even as DTS titles. The exceptions are the QS albums, which if you have the equipment, should decode on CD as they did on vinyl, since for most only a QS master was made. Some SQ titles do exist on CD as well, but not a lot, and less of those were SQ only. As for CD-4 discrete, some titles have made their way onto DVD-Audio, DVD or SACD formats and some OOP DTS titles, but the majority are still commercially unavailable, alas. Only vintage albums are spotlighted here, although there is nothing wrong with discussing the alternate 5.1 or quad mixes that have come along since the 1971-76 'golden age' of quadraphonic sound which, thanks to the three major competing formats (CD-4, SQ, QS), inferior decoding equipment, and consumer confusion and misunderstanding and major label incompetence, rendered the format all but dead by the end of '76. Anyone curious about what quad titles from this time frame exist should click here for Mark Anderson's discography listings. Final note: If there is a title you want to see here that I haven't gotten to as yet, shoot me a PM and I'll see what I can do. There are still many hundreds left to go, and we're here to stay....

several of these are among my all-time favourite Quads!

afaik there are also unreleased Quad mixes of Johnny Winter's Self-titled album and Edgar Winter's White Trash Ft Jerry LaCroix album.

ps. don't forget Edgar's Jasmine Nightdreams was also released in Quad (available on DTS CD) the last three instrumental tracks on that are absolutely mind blowing surround sound imho!
Sharp abservation, with Jasmine Nightdreams that is three more quad masters to include. Most EW and many JW fans were also Rick Derrenger fans as well. So a big quad box with high Rez stereo on BD or SACD is not far fetched. We need Warner / Rhino to get that Doobies set released and that will finally show other labels what the fuss is all about.

all 3 great Quads!

Shock Treatment & TOCOAN mixed by the same engineer iirc (Don Young) one of CBS' main men and my joint favourite Quad remix engineer along with Larry Keyes.. TOCOAN THE Classic Quad its crazy its never been reissued in the years since 1st release, hopefully that will be rectified someday and it'll see a rerelease in discrete MCh fresh from the Quad master.

from past experience with the SQ records of those three, Shock Treatment is kinda bright and bass shy, TOCOAN is a bit grungey and midrange-y.. Spring Fever shouldn't need too much playing around with, the SQ LP sounds great and since i've recently been able to compare Spring Fever Q8 with the SQ, the SQ decodes v.well.. isolating the rears in "Rock" is a hoot with all the synths and effects going on back there.

we don't know the remix engineer of Spring Fever Quad as the SQ gives no credit but i'm guessing based on a pic QQ member steelydave posted here one time circa '75 with Rick Derringer and Larry Keyes at the controls of CBS' Quad mixing console it was Larry assisting the artist himself which would be pretty cool.!

"livin' in new york cityyyyy.. i've got the country in my bones.. i've got those skyscraper blues.. think i've been here way too long" :banana:

To think that AF avoided looking at or considering this title due to the previous SACD release over ten years ago. I think AF made a mistake on staying away from (a few) potentially very hot titles due to a previous SACD or DVD-A issued. Then they do just that for Breezin' and BS&T. If those two can get out on SACD after a previously issued hi-res disc, then this EWG album is a no-brainer.

Let's hope beyond hope that D/V can step up to the plate here and bat an instant home run in the Rock genre. I'll buy two copies no problem.

well I gave my ol' Q8 another listen after too long and it sounded better than it had any right to (and better than my SQ LP! get yer head around that!).. i'm so glad we can now revisit the QQ Polls and amend our old votes because that's what i'm going to do right now, this gem goes up from a "nearly there 9" to a "perfect 10". :love:

I do love this one to death, but unfortunately it's another one of those great old quad mixes that I just can't seem to find a good-sounding copy of. My Q8 seems oversaturated in comparison to other tapes (and it has some annoying dropouts), while the SQ LP has this odd midrangey sound. I prefer the Q8, but compared to the sound I've gotten out of other carts it's a little disappointing.

The mix and music are absolutely phenomenal! I'm still holding out for an SACD...
