    For what it's worth the timings of APB are SQ - 12.52, Q8 - 13,06, EY - 11.39.

    That may be true of the extremely rare quad mix that was recently unearthed, but the 35mm 4-track magnetic prints with the standard LCRS layout sounded fantastic.

    It is kind of odd that the quad mix seems a bit less in your face than the LCRS.

    I think it's possible that it was mixed in quad in 1970.

    Abbey Road had an eight track mixing studio in 1970, how many tracks would you require to have a quad mixing facility ?

    The band "Floyd", were very much more experimental with "QUAD" than say The Beatles might have been. Afterall they were presenting their live concerts in quadraphonic and had been since 1967.

    Both my quad lps state 1970, and although it could be an error, I would have to go with what the current liner notes in the new "box set" tell us. It's conceivable that it was 1970 in my opinion.

    The Q8 you refer to is the "bastardized" Q8 that Capitol U.S. utilized from the SQ master tapes they were sent by Harvest/EMI. The tape says 74 and could be the correct date but those masters were a "Huge missed opportunity" by Capitol U.S. to issue SQ encoded discs ! By 74 Capitol U.S. had made the decision to format quad in Q8 only.
    The UK Q8 , of what I've seen does not have a date. (I could be mistaken).

    FWIW, my Q8 of Atom Heart Mother says 1070 on the back of the slip of paper that came with the tape with a circled P before the date. I suppose the P is for patent but patent for what.
