I have two of them:

Bacillus Selection - German Rock Scene BAC 2024
Mama Rock & The Sons Of Rock 'N Roll - German Rock Scene Part 2 BAC 2025

The latter has the pictures of the covers, with some quad.

-Kristian

Yeah, it's that latter one I'm thinking I saw.

This is a "shrunk down " cover from an Evolution/4 Quad newsletter that I made for a cassette which demo'd my favourite SQ tracks on one side and QS the other.

PINK FLOYD LIVE QUAD94, ad pic.

Maybe one day they'll see their way to finally release some of the QUAD CONCERTS, this one from 94 is likely one of the last years they played live in quad.
So very disapointed I was with the Immersion live sets -Excellent live material, but--
-sans quad.:(

Ovation Records advertisement on their new "Sector 4 " QS releases as it appeared in Sansui's 4 ch Scene .

This is from their April 77 issue .
Although Ovation Records still believed in the Quad recodings , most other labels were burying the format entirely .
The consensus in the quad recording industry was souring big time for anything that was quad labelled hence the Sector 4 indications.

A better look at the article .

RE: SANTANA ABRAXIS in quad


I kept this little article "letter to the Editor" fr High Fidelity mag mainly because I totally agree with the writer's enquiry. They (Columbia Records ) utilized some different takes/tracks from the multi's to mix the quad LP .
And to an extent the change was somewhat inferior. I know the original album did not contain the (scream)during the guitar solo in Singing Winds And Crying Beasts/Black Magic Women and the first song has different guitar solo.


The writer unfortunately does not get his question addressed.

Don't know if anyone else had a good peak at the inside cover from the booklet that comes with KING CRIMSON-BEAT.

Odyssey Recording Studio pic of tape reel box's label has two little indicative boxes to check off . The first one states "Quad"

and next to it next box ---can be checked off for : "QUAD ENCODED, TAPE". Kinda Cool I think, makes me wonder if and how

many were actually encoded for or discrete mixed for QUADRAPHONIC ???(and this is from 1982, yet !!)

Can't really see this with my camera shots but if you got the disc---take a look see.

Well of course now it's got this quad sleuth wondering.:music(y)

Additionally it's unique to note that "Odyssey Recording " not only had Quad mix facilities, but also had the capabilities to QUAD ENCODE discrete masters for matrix quad LPS (and possibly cd's)..:D:upthumb

This looked like an interesting CD, Psych Folk Funk in QS, so I just ordered a 2nd hand one via Discogs from the USA, thanks. :cool:
I agree.

I think it's kinda cool this Ovation CD contains all the original QS QUAD markings .(y)
