If only I had a good wage at the time.
I had to buy most of my Quad LP`s & Tape from the US. which cost me a fortune.....(n)

BBQ,

Is that the last catalogue from S.C. ? Or was there one more, maybe a little wider and blue cover, I think.

No matter can u put up page #3 ? If possible.?

The bottom one is a shot of the inside of the Sound Concepts catalog. I wore out my copiess back in the '70s. Marked them all up, wrote all over them. They were GREAT!!

Funny how back then I used to look at the reel to reel prerecorded tapes and think that they were too expensive! LOL
They were what, $3 more than the LP or Q8. Damn, times change I guess.

$10 was a lot to a military guy back in 1974/5.

What I was looking for was the listing of "Jeff Beck with Jan Hammer Live", could've sworn it was in the last book.But.......??

Also not sure if they had the Lou Rawls listing or maybe it was in Scwann's monthly.



Thanks, BBQ !

your a charm, you know. :music. Tossed mine out btw, around 98,99. (Yes well of course). The first one I had was in 75/76 and it had a smear blue, green, yellow cover I think and boy did I ever stock up on Quad discs with that one.Lots of good stuff available then.


fizzling and fussing

I tried Duncan's Jeff Beck with Jan Jammer Live LP thru the Surround Master in SQ mode and it did bugger all sadly.. but my WLP of Unmistakably Lou is quite nice when run thru SQ.. its different to what the CD does in SQ.. no idea what that's all about but there you go, the catalogue number and dead wax info is the same as the U.S Stereo so maybe just a happy coincidence.. love that album, what a voice he had :eek:

You've got a "very astute quad sleuthing " attitude, Freddie .Although the discs I was enquiring about are not listed, Sound Concepts also provided "inserts" sometimes with a catalogue and sometimes via mail .
These were updates since catalogue was published.

Also just because it wasn't listed didn't necessarily mean it was not available as they only show you what they had "presently" in stock.
Those last couple of catalogues do show a dwindling supply of titles, as opposed to the ever increasing supply of their firsts.
They also carried some great discs from Europe at one time. Like most of their titles usually popular selling titles for the most part. Got my CD-4 of Passport-Handmade from them, they also had the two Nektar discs, and I wished they could have got many more. Most especially would of liked the popular European/North American artists released only in Japan, but even they had difficulty with that big wish.


You don't have any of their "inserts" do you, BBQ ?

Sorry I have some inserts but nothing that would help, I think some may have gotten lost being loose in the cabos

Hi. rustyandi

I most likely started about 1976 there abouts, I was really dabbling in Quad just did not have the money to fulfill my wants at that time.
I`m sort of making up for it now....
