Sailing Homeward is also available on Q8.
of that I am aware :)



I had hoped the equivalent DJM LP might be QS encoded but when I ran it thru the Surround Master it gave completely different results from the Promo 45 I just posted about here so I guess its not.

ps. is the Quad 45 a rarity or not?
if it isn't, I will remove the post & pics.

great information, thank you!
I was going to start a unique thread for this Vic Lewis album because it is such an interesting Quad (to me anyway!) even the DJM LP has mention of Quadraphonic on the rear sleeve (but the word "Quadraphonic" is pasted over with some extra blue foil and the word "Stereophonic" instead..!!!!) I will upload a pic here now to show you what I mean.

I came across an article from 71? that said Crewe was going to issue 45's in quad as well . I was thinking perhaps the theme to Barberella .


Although quad I never really enjoyed this disc much, but it is unique .



Like that Shure M24H avatar . :smokin
About a year ago I bid on another Bob Crewe Quad

this is the LP in question, looking at the reverse of the sleeve, with the word 'Quadraphonic" pasted over and replaced with "Stereophonic"..;

Freddery ,

- seems as if DJM was affiliated with PYE Records . Is that association correct ? Or ?






And if so, why on earth didn't PYE or their budget label Marble Arch release any actual quad Donovan ? Beats the hell out of me ?

Buncha old farts addicted to one genre of music I'll wager.:rolleyes:

Andy Justman-Fireman's Polka


Small label out of Wisconsin that issued discs in Dynaquad (DY-4D) and I read QR tapes as well. I was looking at this lp, noticed the K.L. Recording logo and thought where oh where have I seen this ??
Then I remembered R.Scott Varner sent me some DY-4D schematic and at the bottom K.L. Recording Service was mentioned as a supporter .
So yes indeed a sleuthing for some obscure quads which turn out to be a small label releasing in DYNAQUAD ! :D
This disc is 72, but I have info from Audio Magazine that they started in 71----so at least a few discs were issued.

The song Who on the b side is not on any of my tapes. Is it on another lp. If not then I guess it would be a rare b side.

Oh yes !

And I would assume as it's PYE.......should be, could be....QS !
guess I'll have to try some 70's EJ LPs thru the Involve decoder! ;)
off the top of my head most of the DJM records I have are the red translucent type vinyl (characteristic of Pye pressings) so who knows!?

Scott Joplin from Gunther Schuller and gang on a LONDON RECORDS disc.

Cool to me anyways, to see that London Records label with.....quadraphonic. This time SQ but also London Records quad albums were issued in Japan for both CD-4 (as BBQ has shown )and RM .
At the time I was hoping like hell we'd get some....Rolling Stones , awwwww , wishful thinkin though.
