Well, I didn't rate this yet because I bought the regular stereo LP since there is no quad LP version. However, if you like Ragtime (is there anybody who doesn't?) and recognize Joplin as the master, you need to have this. They are all original orchestral arrangements (in addition to the two solo piano versions), from the early 1900's, of Joplin's piano rags.

First-rate production and sound.

It's interesting that one of the reviews on Amazon claims they play "The Entertainer" too fast, not "correctly" Like Marvin Hamlisch for "The Sting". However, I believe it was Hamlisch who slowed it down and it undoubtedly was played faster, originally. Not super fast but faster.

This is on Angel records and I DO have the second album, "More Scott Joplin Rags" on Golden Crest records and it IS quadraphonic- SQ. Equally delightful.
