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.

this is the mark that marks CBS quadraphonic discs. Quadrifonic sound is the result of the most up-to-date research of the CBS electronic laboratories. The masterpieces of classical music and the greatest hits of light music on CBS quadrifonic discs.

As to whether it helps to decide if the single is quad, I doubt it...
