  • Or, the forum for the old vinyl and quad 8's and reels. It's far from complete--there are many hundreds of non-classical titles yet to post--but a few hundred are here with more to come; I pretty much add 'em when I'm in the mood, or one of you good folks PM me with a request to add something. The best way to use this forum is to go to the bottom of the page and look for something alphabetically by title. The last name of an artist is first where applicable, as in Simon, Paul. The Guess Who are listed as Guess Who, The, to facilitate finding them easily. Soundtracks, Original Cast, and Various Artists are listed as such first, then the album title. A few classical titles are here, with Classical as a header (or will be if I ever weed them in). The idea is to be able to alphabetize and then click, page by page, an A-Z (forward or backward) of what it up at the moment. To do this effectively, remember to click 'Beginning' in the left box, 'Thread title' to its right, so that all titles will list. No titles are ever removed, and all are accessible, and nothing (to date) has been lost in the ether. Just as vinyl lasts a lot longer than its creators could have imagined, so has this board, so far. We're small but we ain't goin' anywhere! FWIW, most of these mixes are long out of print, and only available digitally through like-minded audiophiles--some easy to find, some tough, some perhaps impossible at this time due to rarity or someone just hasn't gotten around to making a transfer from the original sources. That's too bad, but the record companies in the new millennium have no interest in reissuing these even as DTS titles. The exceptions are the QS albums, which if you have the equipment, should decode on CD as they did on vinyl, since for most only a QS master was made. Some SQ titles do exist on CD as well, but not a lot, and less of those were SQ only. As for CD-4 discrete, some titles have made their way onto DVD-Audio, DVD or SACD formats and some OOP DTS titles, but the majority are still commercially unavailable, alas. Only vintage albums are spotlighted here, although there is nothing wrong with discussing the alternate 5.1 or quad mixes that have come along since the 1971-76 'golden age' of quadraphonic sound which, thanks to the three major competing formats (CD-4, SQ, QS), inferior decoding equipment, and consumer confusion and misunderstanding and major label incompetence, rendered the format all but dead by the end of '76. Anyone curious about what quad titles from this time frame exist should click here for Mark Anderson's discography listings. Final note: If there is a title you want to see here that I haven't gotten to as yet, shoot me a PM and I'll see what I can do. There are still many hundreds left to go, and we're here to stay....

Same here, a '7'. It's a decent quad entry, but Turrentine's best work, IMO, was for Blue Note, and even that was erratic at times. Moving to CTI and Creed Taylor gave him a higher profile, but with a few exceptions, CTI jazz wasn't exactly challenging in the '70s, to be kind. This album is fair enough for background music, but that's not quite what most of us want out of jazz, is it?

The quad edition of this is clearly marked on the cover and the catalog ID. But the label on the stereo version seems to indicate an SQ master was used, and it actually decodes fairly well. Did they just slap a different cover & label on the same pressing?

a short but sweet wee sweetie (clocks in at a little over 30 mins of music) with a solid if unspectacular RVG Quad mix. not my absolute favourite Turrentine in Quad (that's 1974's Pieces Of Dreams, on Fantasy, with yummy arrangements by Gene Page). this might make a cool DV 2-fer teamed up with another CTI goody (maybe the unreleased CTI Quad of Joe Farrell's Penny Arcade?). meantime in its vintage Quad form, its an "8" that carries its weight 👍

have you not heard this one afore, Mister Pupster? 🤔
Yes I have, thank you very much... and hey it's Turrentine ... Mr. T to be truly tuned in.
However, I've only heard a conversion, now that I have a compatible rig for these types, I'll have my own go at it and then be fully qualified, bona fide and illustriously sanctified in Quad glory so as to render a vote.

Just a shame that there's only three votes here on this one though 😖
