You might want to give this one a try as well, 10538 Overture alone is worth the price last time I looked:Wonderfully weird and ambitious stuff as the Move morph into ELO. Great vintage quad mix (dig them sliding, scraping cellos filling up the rears!). A 10, yes indeed.
Is this a part of a series which I failed to keep track of? Maybe Srormbringer and Barclay James Harvest are two of the others. If so, which are the five other titles?This is one of the best of the EMI eight quad rock discs released, and had eluded me for decades.This is an amazing mix in quad and it is worthy of a "10" for my vote.
This EMI quad was only available in SQ LP in South America I believe, and Q8 in the UK.I twice purchased this disc back in the 70's only to find a stereo copy in a quad sleeve.
So this disc is a true QUAD COLLECTOR'S MUST OWN!!
If you like chamber rock music you'll love this disc.Very creative use of strings.
Favourite track...."Nellie Takes Her Bow", good use of quad in the mix.
Now if only more ELO quad was released, I'd be most happy.Maybe it's time for the whole ELO catalog to recieve "surround treatment".??
Is this essentially an ebay purchase? Where can one find a copy??I just got this disc. WOW , I love it. The mix is fantastic, and the music is really good too. I have been putting off buying this for quite a while, because I was afraid I wouldn't like the music. Really glad I finally got it. SUPER. I vote 10.

You're killing me! Thanks my good man....I just purchased a copy.

Obviously these are not all a part of the same series. The SACDs certainly not.View attachment 22528

I don't think anyone said they were a series as such, fizzywiggs41 said;Obviously these are not all a part of the same series. The SACDs certainly not.
But the Deep Purple Machine Head w/ quad DVD-V, is that the UK quad mix (which I have read is preferred)?
