Howard was a monster player, especially in the L.A. session scene, see his many works here:

I also studied some of his guitar lessons in the late 70's and 80's from the excellent "Jazz Improvisation" column in the Guitar Player magazine. Thrilled to finally hear this one in Quad.

Double album, very interesting four-corner mixes on some songs.

I'm assuming this is EV-4 so I played it in RM, great sound quality.

Manuel Gottsching Ash Ra Tempel 6 Inventions For Electric Guitar

Good music for meditation, passive surround mix.

Meyer Kupferman Concerto For Cello, Tape And Orchestra

Abstract percussion, it reminds me of the background music for There Will Be Blood, good mix.

Various French Songs (Nimbus)

This was listed as DBX-QS encoded, ended up with the non-DBX version which is still QS, lots of dynamic range good ambiance.

Opened it, was still perfect. Great mix, strange abstract content, sounds like Japanese music at times.

Steely Dan Can't Buy A Thrill

I had holding off buying this album for a long time because it seemed like I couldn't find one without liquid damage, then I realized it was part of the cover art! True story.

Just ordered a at440mlb expecting it within the next few days, also the test record for my kenwood. I recently lost a nut because I had a screw loose and I just cant find it anywhere (cartridge is hanging by just one screw). I am not expecting optimal CD-4 performance from the old pl12d, and I dont have any CD-4 records yet, but at least I will be able to play them without damaging them until I get a better TT. I am very eager to test the demodulator on my kenwood not sure if it was ever used at all, hopefully it still works

Any particular model TT you're considering?

Many people made the same mistake with Muscle of Love.

I used to have a Kenwood 9940 like yours. The only reciever I've ever owned. The CD-4 demodulator was stable & not too picky about set up. I was using an AT-12 and then a Pickering CD-4 cart back then. I also have an AT-440 mlb on my present AT TT and when it was new I tried with both my Clarion & JVC demodulators. It worked fine. So I hope it turns out well for you too.

I like Harvey Mandel. I just wish he had mixed Christo Redentor in quad. I had a (record;)) dealer give me a copy years ago telling me that I need to know it. Don't most (record;)) dealers give free samples to get ya hooked?
Here's the LP I got back in the day that introduced me to Mandel.
This version of Cristo Redentor is great sounding, but not the same as Mandel.

Love that album. Have you heard The Snake by Harvey Mandel. When I played it a few months ago it sure sounded to me like the second song on side 2 , Ode to the Owl, had some kind of encoding. The whole album sounded good through the SM but when this song came on I suddenly started hearing things from the rear that I did not hear on the rest.

Ode to the Owl.....Alan "the Owl" Wilson, co-founder and Soul of Canned Heat, the best Delta Blues band ever...always a great listen and lesson in Delta Blues..I know cause I moved to New Orleans and I understood why...

I just bought (used off Discogs) the SQ album of LaBelle, Phoenix. Typically, I wouldn't buy an album that didn't produce any hits. (I'm very much a "pop" guy.) But at only a few bucks more added to my order of other stuff, I couldn't resist. In any case, listening to it today, the quad mix is pretty amazing! SQ rarely impresses me. But this album is terrific. FYI. I'm using a Sansui QRX-7001 to decode.
