Similar to Fredblue's question, are the Mike Quatro tracks unique to quad compilation records? I haven't seen a reference to his work released in quad outside of compilations.

Supersonic Quadraphonic Sound Spectacular
Interfusion (LQ 34,950) (QMX42485)
5. Mike Quatro Jam Band: PRELUDE IN Ab CRAZY
5. Mike Quatro Jam Band:RACHMANINOFF PRELUDE
Zenith Allegro Compatible Stereo & 4 Channel Demonstration Record
Zenith 16302 F3041R
(specially produced for Zenith by Stereo Dimension Records)
4. Prelude in A flat Crazy (Classical Variations) - The Mike Quatro Jam Band
I seem to recall there was a German band similar to BS&T that had one track on a compilation not released in quad anywhere else.

It might be interesting to compile a list of tracks that only ever appeared in quad on quad compilations.

The band you're thinking about is Lighthouse, and they're Canadian, not German. Interfusion released a quad compilation album, only in Australia and New Zealand, that features their track "One Fine Morning", which does have a BS&T, Chicago-like sound and was a hit for them in the 70's. The album was encoded in EV Stereo-4, compatible with QS, and it's a great track. The American version of the album, sold through Olsen Electronics, left that track out.

OK, Tag. Your It. Our, If anyone wants to take on the compilation only listing, please proceed, it could be interesting.

I am not familiar with the artist in question so I cannot help with identifying if the compilation is the only release but will certainly do some investigating.

Thanks for that suggestion - I enjoyed listening to that track, and a search of this thread showed they had one other, Hats Off (To The Stranger) that was also on quad samplers. Definite similarity to BS&T. I wouldn't mind stumbling across a good rip of those.

However, the band I was thinking about turns out to be Round House (so fairly close) and the track came from their Down To Earth album - I can't recall the actual track but the comp is already on Mark's site. On reflection a bit more Chicago than BS&T. Seems they may have been Swiss rather than German.

Thanks krkier. This is one I missed. I appreciate the pictures and alerting us to it's existence!
I am aware of QSP 910 & 920, SO THIS WAS A SURPRISE.

Onkyo 8Track 4 Channel Demo Tape (4TC-05)

(Presumably this was a Japan-only release that came with Onkyo Q8 equipment.)

This is the tracklist, hopefully I've transcribed the Japanese kanji correctly. English translations in brackets beside. Some of the material on here (Circle Game, Theme from Z) seems to be the same as the Onkyo 7" QS sampler TX4-1703, but this is the first discrete version of any of this that I've come across.

Side 1
  • ナレーション ("Narration")
  • マッシュ ("Mash")
  • ュー ("Ue")

Side 2
  • サークルゲーム ("Circle Game")
  • Zのテーマ ("Z's Theme")
  • テオレマ ("Teorema")

レインボー・ストリングス (The Rainbow Strings)

Great timing as I have been repairing the links from the anthology/sampler page to the new QQ forum and did not have a a link for the photo you attached of EVOLUTION-4-Channel Music Sampler. 16503 (Q8) .

Thanks

I have 2 Lighthouse tracks in quad EV-4 , FWIW .

The tracks are : "One Fine Morning " and "Hats Off To The Stranger " both from different (vinyl) Evolution Stereo Sound Dimension Quadraphonic Samplers .
So the track "Take It Slow " would be a THIRD quad song from Lighthouse .

SONY QUADRADIAL STEREO DEMONSTRATION CARTRIDGE (CD-901)

39166391673916839169

Side 1:
  1. Ebb Tide
  2. Maltese Melody
  3. Bitter Sweet Samba
Side 2:
  1. Atakama II
  2. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me

Another rarity from @bigbillquad 's Japanese Q8 haul from last year, this may be the only Q8 (sampler or otherwise) that CBS/Sony Japan ever issued. Interesting that they use the term 'quadradial stereo' instead of quadraphonic, and also interesting that the tape bears a 1971 copyright date, which means it definitely came out before any of CBS's US quad product.

The only performer credit on the tape is 'Sing Yasuko Ooki' - I did some googling and there was a singer called Yasuko Oki (in Japanese: 大木康子) who was signed to CBS/Sony Japan from the late 60s through the 70s and released many albums and singles (although surprisingly, none in quad) for the label, so I'm guessing it's probably her.
