there were UK SQ LPs of "Band On The Run" and "Venus & Mars"??? 🤯😱🤩
Yikes. I haven't heard of that either. It's conceivable that it could have been done, as Lennon's Imagine got both the discrete tape and matrix LP treatment and Band on the Run was also an Apple release. But I'm unaware of that actually having taken place with either McCartney/Wings albums.

The Mandingo albums, one of which I have, were released in Canada, but not the US. "Band" and "Venus" were released in SQ in the UK, but only on Q8 here. "Band"' sounds like real quad, but "Venus" sounds a bit odd.

No Paul McCartney albums were released on quad vinyl by EMI .

I have their pop/rock listing , and the only post BEATLE was John Lennon-Imagine released on SQ vinyl . EMI was a big backer of SQ vinyl but mostly Pink Floyd and the Harvest Label artists.( 8 all told.)
And of course after pop/rock dual inventory they went Single Inventory with primarily Classical.

EMI's 'Studio Two' had several SQ albums and the single inventory were on the 'Angel' and 'HMV' labels.

Hi. All

Thought I`ll drop this info here.

Just sold on eBay PINK FLOYD DARK SIDE OF THE MOON LP the RM version = QS.
I have this version but with out the OBI. In my opinion this QS version sounds better than the SQ version more separation to my ears, but I did not buy my copy at this price which sold for $490.00 US
So what`s your opinion.........

The obi is worth almost 5 times as much as the actual record :)

After the end of DBX discs in the 1980's, was there ever an attempt to revive the format?

With so many new music and reissue vinyl records being produced today, there could potentially be a market for DBX Discs. A stand-alone decoder could be made to add into a system just like originally. But, that being said, the market of people who might actually spring for modern DBX Discs and decoders would be niche.
Shortly after I started buying things on eBay (many years ago), I ended up purchasing a DBX decoder (DBX II,124) and a few DBX encoded LP's. The LP's were on the "Nautilus" label. Remember Nautilus, they competed with MFSL in the audiophile market? Anyway of the albums that I have I also have the regular Nautilus pressings as well. While I haven't played a DBX disc in a long while as I recall the biggest difference between them was the lack of groove noise between tracks. I recall that when they first came out people that were used to setting their volume control based on the groove noise at the start of the record were in for a big shock when the music started, blasting their speakers!

At some point I thought of recording the DBX album to digital/CD and then playing it through the DBX decoder. That was not a such great idea as it resulted in a disc compatible only with the DBX decoder. I also tried an experiment making a digital recording using the DBX encoder, reasoning that I could get an extra 40 dB of dynamic range on top of the already ridiculously high 120dB. Well what I didn't count on was the noise induced by the DBX encoder/decoder itself. Results were far worse with it in, the process tends to colour the sound as well. Anyway DBX for records came and went rather quickly, made obsolete by the development of the CD.

All those audiophile LP's being of very popular material have since been re-released in high resolution digital formats making the vinyl copies rather obsolete. I still love the album covers though, you just don't get that with any digital format. Today If I were to make a digital copy of the vinyl I would most likely use the normal (non DBX) pressing applying noise reduction in software if needed to avoid the noise and distortion of the DBX unit itself.

Interesting, this looks to be a straight reissue of GW-7062Q (which is also in your collection, you posted pictures here) and has the same matrix numbers on the labels, CQL-51/CQL-52. It's a previously unknown release (paging @Mark Anderson ) so I've added it to my Crown discography page:
