    Pop, Easy Listening or Classical?

    At any rate, ALWAYS good news.

    Well, we know it's NOT punk, hip hop nor rap so my guess would be jazz and/or pop.

    Bring them ON!

    As Adam said, the four titles in this release represent some incredibly tough quad mixes to locate, especially in Q8 form. The PPL quads were some of the last that RCA ever did, and Musicmagic is the VERY last Columbia single-inventory quad. It's tough to find a photo of the tape online, let alone a copy of the tape itself.

    Jimmy Castor's Dimension III has never been in-print digitally anywhere, no rare Japanese CDs, no streaming, no iTunes, so this release represents its debut worldwide - its also another really hard to find Q8. The LP was one of the single-inventory QuadraDiscs, and you can find it because of that, but the Q8 seems really tough to find. It's also a really fun album - Castor is no Luther Vandross as a vocalist, but there are a bunch of great songs on Dimension III, almost the dictionary definition of a hidden gem in my opinion.

    I think its also worth noting that Illuminations is the first of the Santana studio quads to be released in high-resolution, and as far as I know the first time this album has been remastered in stereo since the original Columbia CD release of the early 90's.

    I worked really hard researching and writing the liner notes for all four of these titles over the last six months, and I know equal care has gone in to the tape transfers, mastering, design and packaging of all these titles. I didn't want to say anything until these were announced, but I hope its clear that Vocalion's scope isn't nearly as narrow as some people have suggested. Michael Dutton and everyone at the label are very passionate about quad so if you want more of this kind of thing there's one way to vote, and that's with your wallet.

    One last thing I wanted to add is that I've been informed that the Return to Forever 'Musicmagic' disc is a short-run/limited edition pressing title so if you want a copy, don't delay in ordering. Obviously it's folly to suggest that something will be a collectors' item before it even happens, but given what the prices are like for some of the OOP AF titles now, it certainly wouldn't surprise me if the same happens with this one.


    I wrote a blog entry for the label with more background information the albums that make up this release for anyone interested:

    Voted with my pocketbook for the two fusion titles, and share the joy in the diversity and obscurity Dutton offers at bargain prices.

    At 6 GBP for untracked shipping charges, I further pledge:
    • Not to whine or grumble on this forum about how long it takes for them to be delivered to the Beef State.



    Mega-props to steelydave for the excellent research and writing.
    Cast your dancin' spell my way, I promise to go under it...

    I likewise ordered all four titles. Still scratching my head......D~V has, IMO, upped the ante considerably. I did purchase the AF Stereo SACD of MusicMagic and like many on this forum lamented the fact it wasn't multichannel and now the miracle workers at D~V answered our prayers. And Alice Coltrane/Santana: Illuminations......WOW!

    The Pure Prairie League two~fer is also an amazing addition. And although I'm not familiar with the Jimmy Castor Bunch....what the hell.

    Thank you, Thank you D~V. I think you've somewhat struck Gold this time.

    And thanks to Steelydave for his invaluable contribution to the cause and for keeping us informed.

    For roughly $70US, one is receiving 5 QUAD multichannel titles which comes out to $14 each incl s/h. Even MORE amazing.

    Default Re: 4 New Surround Sound SACD Albums from Dutton Vocalion (Aug 2017)

    I wanted to share a few trade ads and things that I dug up during my research for the liner notes of these albums - obviously they couldn't be included in the liner notes for copyright/licensing reasons but I thought it would be cool to include them here.

    Jimmy Castor Bunch 'Dimension III' ad from Record World 6/30/1973



    Pure Prairie League 'Two Lane Highway' ad from Rolling Stone 7/1975


    Pure Prairie League 'If The Shoe Fits' ad from Billboard 1/3/1976


    Carlos Santana & Alice Coltrane 'Illuminations' ad from NME 10/19/1974

    Original Columbia 24"x 36" promo poster:


    Return To Forever 'Musicmagic' ad from Billboard 3/26/77
