No one has commented on this title, so I will. I voted an 8, and I don't have a real scientific breakdown why. So, some comments:

Another Quad title 2'fer from Vocalion from a country artist that was pretty damn popular in the 70's. My folks liked him and had records all about, so I used to listen to them back in the day.

The first portion is a live set. (The Silver Fox) Others have commented on having too much Charlie talking, but after listening to the set in order, I like his chatter. It adds to the charm and adds context for the whole show. If I recall, Charlie could play the ivory, and so some of the short "jams" on piano are great and if him, show his skills. The fidelity is very good for a live show and the quad is also very good.

The second title is his studio album. (Very Special Love Songs) As fredblue has said, this may not be our favorite Rich title, but still represents his qualities as an artist. I guess we call this country. His songs mostly are driven by piano and his smooth vocals. This title sounds very nice, fidelity is good. As far as Quad from Vocalion, this one isn't as quaddy as Conniff titles, still very good IMO.

As a whole, I voted an 8. I just can't get enough of these quad titles from Vocalion.
