We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort.

There's a discogs entry for this title here, and I posted pictures of the Q8 version here.

It seems like some of the ABC GRT tapes have more than one catalog number, because it appears that ABC swallowed up some smaller labels and then reissued the tapes on their own labels. Case(s) in point:

Love Story (Original Soundtrack)

Original release on Paramount Records: 7091-6002 H
Reissued version on ABC Records: 7022-6002 H

Roy Clark 'Roy Clark's Family Album'

Original release on DOT Records: C 7150-26018
Reissue on ABC Dot: 7310-26018 H

View attachment 37872

It's likely that some of the other Dot titles (Roy Clark, Donna Fargo) and Paramount (Billy Vaughn) may have similar variants, but these are the two I happened to notice.


QA-6-Y Victor Silvester Strings 'Quadraphonic Home Concert De Luxe'

This appears to be a Japan-only Pye release, and it also explains where track A4 on the UK Pye Quadraphonic Sampler (QUAB 1001) came from.
I noticed the paramount Q8's today. Love story and Billy Vaughn, I will check for others. Thanks for bringing those to my attention.

Funny the timing of things. I am working on the Asian discography today and should have something to review by next week. I appreciate the post.

Yes, we consider that a pirate recording as well as the others on discogs. The claim is made that they would pay copyright fees to the owners of the work but who knows if that ever happened. Sound Values did release some non-pirate recordings as they had some artist that were only published on there label. Check the popular list for those.
Bootlegs are unreleased recordings of a concert or studio work, pirates are copies of released work

Hello Mark, On the discography cassette list "The Git Go" cassette is under Klaus Schulze instead of Klaus Weiss.
Thanks for catching that. I also had a dual entry for both on the complete page!
I will have that corrected in a day or two.
