    Do not offer for free, offer for sale, offer for trade, or request copies or files of copyrighted material - no matter how rare or unavailable to the public they might be. We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. 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. Any posts of this sort will be deleted without notification.

    Please try to avoid discussions that pit one format against another. Hint for new users: make liberal use of the search facilities here at QuadraphonicQuad. Our message base is an incredibly rich resource of detailed information on virtually all topics pertaining to surround-sound. You will be surprised at what you can find with a little digging!

Nat's younger brother, and a stylish singer in his own right. Made some especially fine albums for Fantasy in the 90s, Telarc in the aughts (including several recorded in DSD and at least one released on stereo SACD), and HighNote in the past decade. Also one reissue on our beloved Vocalion, though not a quad.

I have many of his Telarc albums and I've always enjoyed his laid back singing. His Christmas album is also really swell. He will be missed. R.I.P. Good Sir.
