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.

Is the mix any good...quad mix, that is. ☺
Fortunately I have the Deram tape to compare. I do not have my equip hooked up to a computer or any equip that would be able to use software to evaluate. The VU meters showed slight differences in the tapes. But both have good 4 channel separation .

In 1974 ABC Records bought the Dot label and renamed it 'ABC Dot' - so all the Roy Clark and Donna Fargo Q8s that originally came out on Dot were reissued on the ABC Dot label with an updated catalog number - it looks like you sort of got the Roy Clark ones, but the Donna Fargo ones are missing:

ROY CLARK -
Come Live with Me. Dot 7310-26010H & C7310-26010 (Q8)
Superpicker. Dot 7310-26008H & C7150-26008 (Q8)
The Best Of. Dot C7310-25986 & 7310-25986H (Q8)
The Family Album. Dot C7150-26018 & 7310-26018 H (Q8)

The C 7150-xxxxx tapes were first, then the 7150-xxxxx H tapes (both on the Dot label), and then finally the 7310-xxxxx H tapes, on the ABC Dot label. I'm more than happy to be proven wrong, but I don't think there are any C 7310 tapes. I believe Superpickers, Best Of and Family Album had 7150 C and H variants, and Come Live With Me was H only.


DONNA FARGO -
All About a Feeling. Dot 7310-26019H (Q8)
My Second Album. Dot 7310-26006H (Q8)
The Happiest Girl in the Whole U.S.A. Dot 7310-26000H (Q8)

Same with these three, the original issues were C 7150-xxxxx, then 7150-xxxxx H on the Dot label, and then the ones you have above, 7310-xxxxx H on the ABC Dot label.
