    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!

One of the most influential 20th-century graphic designers. Most famous for the "I ❤ NY" campaign, but also did tons of iconic music posters and album covers and, according to his New York Times obit, "was widely credited with creating the pudgy, cartoony style known as 'Yellow Submarine' art, popularized by the 1968 animated Beatles film but practiced at [Glaser's firm] Push Pin since the late 1950s." (Oh, and--denizens of the Craft Brew thread: Glaser designed the logo for Brooklyn Brewery, New York City's first successful microbrewery.)

Unsurprisingly, the cover for XTC's Oranges and Lemons was based on a 1965 design that Glaser did for New York radio station WOR:
