The above classic gold SQ Columbia Quadraphonic label is from a
rare 1975 Columbia sampler that included tracks from other labels using the SQ System


 

At the beginning of the 1970's, Columbia Records was one of the top record companies in the US, with an impressive
roster of recording stars and a great history that included artists like (early) Frank Sinatra, Mitch Miller, Ray Conniff, Miles Davis, and
through the efforts of executive Clive Davis had burst into the Rock and Pop era by signing starts like Simon & Garfunkel, Donovan,
Bob Dylan, Blood Sweat and Tears, Chicago and others.

Columbia was also a pioneer in the field of the actual recording of artists, being one of the oldest
record companies in the world. As the '70s began, a new technology was developing that would present audio sound
through 4 Channels and 4 speakers and Columbia, with it's CBS Technology Center in Stamford, CT, was right
on top of this new quadraphonic craze. In fact, they developed their own system,  "SQ" (Stereo-Quadraphonic), that
encoded a 4 channel audio signal into a "normal" stereo signal, and in 1972 began selling these Quadraphonic albums
which could also be played on a normal "Stereo" turntable and system without special cartridges or turntables. 

Below you will find a table containing all of the Columbia US SQ LP releases, including those on
subsidiary labels such as Epic, and their classical brand, Masterworks. They are listed in "pressing
number" order, and I've included the dates in which they were released, as well as the approximate
date that they were deleted and sent to the cut-outs.

The SQ albums of 1976 and 1977 that were not "single-inventory" (they were not released in stereo, only
compatible quad) are the rarest of the group, as they were pressed in very limited numbers. The early titles with the wide
gold borders are quite common, as Columbia pressed them in great numbers to get their product the
highest visibility.


Not all Columbia (and subsidiary label) quadraphonic labels have the large gold border around the album front graphics. Throughout
the '70s, the style changed and eventually the bold proclamation of SQ QUADRAPHONIC was relegated to a little
blurb on the back of the album jacket, sometimes being so small that only the quad fan would ever notice it.

These are a few examples of some different type of quadraphonic labeling of Columbia (and group) albums


 

THE NUMBERS QUESTION
What's the difference between pressing number CQ 30994 and PCQ 30994?

ANSWER: ONE DOLLAR!

Most, if not all, of the original Gold Bordered releases listed below, as well as those without borders,
released from 1972-1974 did not have the "P" price code prefix printed on the jackets. In 1974, when Columbia increased
the list price on their LP product, the CQ, EQ, and ZQ prefixes for single LPs became
PCQ, PEQ, and PZQ respectively. To reflect this price increase on the older stock that had yet to ship,
and to save the cost of reprinting jacket graphics, stickers with the new catalog number were printed and affixed to the jackets
(see graphic above). The labels remained with the original catalog number. Consequently, some collectors
will have a specific LP with a CQ number, while another will have the PCQ number.
The only difference being the price that was originally charged for the record.
