I am back in the states after finishing a project in Abu Dhabi and have some time on my hands to update the discography's.

I am requesting any updates you would like to have added to the Popular Quad Discography including corrections.

If the title is new please include the following

1. Artist
2. Title of album
3. Record label
4. Catalog number
5. Quadraphonic format (QS, SQ, CD4, UMX)
6. Format - LP (vinyl), Q8 (Quad 8-track), QR (quad reel to reel)
since catalog numbers change w/format
7. Add a D in front of the tape format code listed above if Dolby
was used on the tape.
8. Country of origin (U.S., U.K, etc.) since catalog
numbers change with country of origin

I will create separate threads for the classical and other discography's for updates.

This is both an addition and an update. Currently for Sergio Mendes, it says:

* Mais que nada. Epic CBS SONY ECPB-268-SM, 7" 45rpm E.P. (SQ)
[Japan]
{Live recording in Japan from the-Carnival Live Album, Epic CBS SONY
record ECPB-268-SM}

To be complete and consistent, there should be three entries:

* Carnival. Epic ECPN-20-SM (SQ) [Japan]
* Carnival. Epic ECPD-10-SM (SQ) [Japan] 7" 33 RPM EP
{Mais Que Nada; Constant Rain; Fool on the Hill; Going Out of My Head}
* Mais Que Nada b/w Fool on the Hill. Epic ECPB-268-SM (SQ) [Japan] 7" 45rpm single (SQ)

Pictures of each of these are attached for verification.

Yes it does exist. Your info is all correct. No digital camera though so I can't take a photo.

not sure should i mention this, but all to you to decide:

Bill Black's Greatest Hits Volume 2
Hi Records (The Memphis Sound Serie)

London XSHL 32078
SQ
LP Canada

there's no mark about quadraphonic mix but i'm 100% positive it has matrixed mix.
was decoded beautifully with perfect separation of the groups into front and rear.

Beck, Bogart & Appice-Live. Epic ECPJ5/6 [2 LP] (SQ) [Japan]
*I have this as a single LP version, probably condensed from the 2-LP version. Epic 25-3P-57 (Japan)


LOUISE BELLSON
*typo, should be "Louis"


GOERGE BENSON -
*typo, should be "George"


BEYOND THE REEF -
Blue Hawaiians With Strings. JVC CD4B-5024 (CD4) [Japan]
*I believe this is listed backwards, i.e. "Beyond the Reef" by Blue Hawaiians With Strings. I can also add this pressing: Vicor International VI-1007 (Philippines)


Brass Voices -
Brass Voices Swing The Big Band Theme Songs. Longines Symphonette SYS-5881 (QS)
{The title above was released only in quad, no stereo version known}


Carmets, The - Moog Electric Sounds. Victor CD4B-5045 (CD-4)(Japan)
*new


JACK DE MELLO HAWAIIAN ALL STARS -
Hawaiian Sound In CD4. JVC CD4W-7032E (CD4) [Japan]
*add Vicor International VI-2033 (Philippines)


The Film Studio Orchestra - The World of Michael Legrand. JVC CD4W-7008E (CD4) [Japan]
*new


MILT JACKSON -
The Impulse Years. Impulse ASH-9282 (QS) [2 LP]
(*new. Three tracks are specifically identified as being quad, all 3 from "Just the Way It Had to Be". The other tracks are not quad.)


GLENN MILLER & ORCHESTRA -
A String of Pearls. JVC CD4W-7023E (CD4) [Japan]
*add Vicor International VI-2038 (Philippines), entitled "Glenn Miller in CD-4, Vol. 1" (references Japanese # so it is the same disc)


WALLENSTIEN SYMPHONIC ROCK ORCHESTRA - Stories, Songs & Symphonies.
*typo, should be "Wallenstein"


(*and for my favorite bizarre quad discovery...)
Jackie Welch - Jackie Welch. Telvi Records LP1001 (SQ? QS?) labeled "stereo/quad". (U.S. pressing?) This is a Tom Jones style singer on Carnival's first cruise ship, the TSS Mardi Gras. All but two of the songs are in Hebrew, I guess. It's pretty terrible. I did not get much QS action out of it and don't have a good SQ decoder.

None of these are likely to be quad per se, but since they are labeled with the QS logo it seems like they should be included in the discography in some way. Y'know, they're sort of like the 1970s version of Silverline DVD-As! (In Silverline's defense, at least SOME of those are surround!)

I grab these when they are really cheap so here are a few, mostly popular music:

Boys Choir of Vienna with Justin Kramer's Symphonic Carillon, Vienna State Opera Orch.(Etti Cond.) - Voices & Bells of Christmas. Olympic OL-8130 (labeled QS)

Pearl Bailey and Louis Bellson - Pearl Bailey and Louis Bellson. Everest FS-284 (labeled QS). Recorded 1955, probably not quad!

Earl "Fatha" Hines - The Essential Earl "Fatha" Hines. Olympic OL-8130 (labeled QS). Recorded live in 1957, probably not quad!

George Lewis - Jazz Funeral in New Orleans. Olympic OL-7117 (labeled QS). Recorded in 1953, probably not quad!

Scott Joplin - Excerpts from Treemonisha. Richard Zimmerman, Piano. Olympic OL-8139 (labeled QS). This one COULD actually be quad, recording could be recent enough. Haven't listened to it.

I think that somewhere I have another Olympic LP that doesn't have the QS logo, but says it's compatible for 2-channel or 4-channel equipment.

That's it Mark, I'm out of additions!

Thanks Mark for the info. I have been including the Olympic and Everest titles with the notation {The title above is from a mono recording re-channeled for quad} to alert folks who find them with the QS logo. I added {The title above MIGHT BE quad instead of from a mono recording re-channeled
for quad like most if not all other Olympic recordings, Status has not yet been determined} to the scott joplin title.

I assume the "Boys Choir of Vienna" should be in the classical discography?

"A Tribute to Led Zeppelin" definitely exists, in stereo and quad. Hilariously bad. I am cranking the Q8 as I type.

Where should I email some photos?

What an interesting album. I've got a couple of those Capitol specials, but it would be great to get a rip of this for the blog!

The "QD" designation albums are QS, although some of the earlier albums were EV. Project 3 used "SQ" or "CD-4" in the place of the "QD" on records in those respective systems.
