    Welcome "Arnold Layne"! Nice set of tapes there. The Canadian Capital sampler is very rare, and one of the best sounding Q8's I've ever listened to. (The EMI PF's are not too shabby either! )

    It's a great sampler!

    Actually, "Arnold" bought that Q8 from me back in November 2002! (eBay item 921238231)

    Here's the scan I used in the eBay ad:

    Any Colour You Like is an interesting choice for a sampler. Reminds me of the juke box in the dining hall at college, it would play a random track every so many minutes, and there was a 45 of that in there. It was kind of strange to have that start out of nowhere while eating.

    Cool Sampler!! I wish more of those had come out - I think they would have HELPED Quad sales! Rather than buying multiple tapes just to get one hit song, you buy one tape with multiple hit songs. It only makes sense.
    The voices in my head come from Right Rear only!

    What's hard to understand is why split a song in a demo tape... just rearrange to fit!

    Thanks for putting it up for sale I enjoy that cart quite a bit. Though my favorite is the WYWH quad. The discrete mix is just wonderful. My tape is a bit worn out, the high frequencies are practically gone on the first program. Trying to find a better copy.

    I just counted 300 with about 15 doubles. They all get played regularly.
    Most are Canadian releases if that means anything. I'll have to get around to listing them.

    Still looking for a few more!

    No Bloody Way!! Quad Linda: Do you REALLY have a copy of Canned Heat's Future Blues? Please post a pic! After many discussions around here, we were almost ready to declare that one 'vapourware' as nobody's ever seen a copy! We must have pics! And incidentally, would you lend it out to be converted???

    Hey, I saw her first!

    Anyway, the sole Q8 I have is a purple DSOTM I recartridged back in the late seventies - early eighties when I worked at Telex and we were making decks for Ford.

    The tape jammed and cartridge broke when I tried to get it apart to fix it. So I put it in a white RCA test tape cartridge which is much better quality anyway.

    We used to play that on the quad system we set up at work using the completed electronic Ford quad deck/radio I smug....er...ah...brought back with me from Toronto with full permission of the Ford company personnel. Actually, that last part IS true. I would never have taken anything out of their factory without prior OK. That would be bad.

    Recently, when I decided to persue Q8 reproduction again, I got out the old deck and hooked it up but it wouldn't run and I smelled something getting hot. So, I took it apart assuming the deck motor had seized. It wasn't that (I should have known better - our decks NEVER malfunctioned, well, hardly ever). The deck still works fine. It's something else and I just haven't taken the time to troubleshoot it. It's kind of a compactly made little devil. Advanced for 1979.

    I guess I'll have to buy a more home stereo type player or adapt my deck from the ford radio to an external amp.

    Doug

    I'd love to see first BTO album be converted... My BTO II was done a little bit ago and
    the first two albums are my favorites.

    The first BTO is my vote for their best. Does anyone have a Japanese CD-4 of this? I never acquired a Quad of it. The CD has been OOP for years, though I own one and a 2ch LP.

    If I were to post my collection now, the Board would implode. 300+ cartridges and climbing. Even got some of the ridiculously rare (or at least, hard to find) 34xxx series albums from 1976 and 1977!
    The voices in my head come from Right Rear only!

Actually, that last part IS true. I would never have taken anything out of their factory without prior OK. That would be bad.

    Recently, when I decided to persue Q8 reproduction again, I got out the old deck and hooked it up but it wouldn't run and I smelled something getting hot. So, I took it apart assuming the deck motor had seized. It wasn't that (I should have known better - our decks NEVER malfunctioned, well, hardly ever). The deck still works fine. It's something else and I just haven't taken the time to troubleshoot it. It's kind of a compactly made little devil. Advanced for 1979.

    cool Doug, I remember this story but I couldn't remember which forum member worked at Ford, now I do

    how long did you let your radio sit on the shelf before trying it out? the 1979 Ford quad 8 track player was the black digital one correct? they only made them for one year before moving onto the silver colored radio's when the new 1980 Lincoln models got introduced

    I am surprised that you didn't actually use a ford Demo quad tape for testing purposes, I thought that intro was specifically designed for playing in the car - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq-Sh...eature=related

    anyways here's my collection

    1. Ford "A kaleidoscope of contemporary sound" DPT1-0197

    6. Pink Floyd "WYWH" (USA)
    7. Deep Purple "Stormbringer"

    8. Deep Purple "Machine Head" - note to anyone else who has this - does your cardboard case have a misspelling (Quadriphonic)- mine does- will take a pic when I get a chance


    9. Duke Ellington "New Orleans Suite"
    10. Q8 Demo "Radioshack"
    11. Q8 Demo "Panasonic"
    12. Q8 Demo "Pickwick"

    That's not a misspelling. Back in the day, no one could decide on the proper spelling of Quadraphonic and the IHF (Institute of High Fidelity) finally issued a statement that Quadriphonic was the correct term since the prefix "Quadra" is not of Greek or Latin origin and is thus, garbage - Tetraphonic would be the most correct name for four-channel sound, so it would be Monophonic, Biphonic, Triphonic, Tetraphonic, Quintaphonic, etc... Companies called thier receivers and software Quadriphonic, Quadraphonic, Quadrophonic, etc... all of which were 'correct' for the time. Long after quad was dead it was kinda decided - by general usage or osmosis, I guess - that "Quadraphonic" was the correct spelling.

    man that bums me out in away, Trying to build a Q8 collection now is seriously hard, I've got 11 Q8's and ebay is crazy. How many here are bidding on Q8's at the moment? I'd hate to be bidding against other here because some are going for crazy money.
