Please post your thoughts and comments on this 1979 CD-4 release from RCA, which was the final CD-4 record sold by RCA USA. These albums were actually Japanese stock (R4C-2069) which were stickered with the US catalog number CPD1-3412 and sold through a very narrow distribution system. These are very rare. Presumably they were imported to cash in on the popularity of the song "Bolero" which was used in the Blake Edwards film '10' which was a hit at the time.

If anyone has better scans or pictures, please feel free to add them to this thread.

Fortunately, Dutton-Vocalion released this quadraphonic treasure as one of their multichannel SACD's in 2019, 40 years after the Quadradisc's release!

My copy must be original Japanese stock, because it does not have that Quadradisc sticker.
