The price for the Kevin Coyne on CD or LP is quite high on Discogs (well with the P&P!), I wish the album Majory Razorblade was in Quad, hooked on it since hearing the single on the radio (late night!) and then getting a Virgin Sampler cassette with it on it.
I think mine was quite cheap ,maybe $25 can. So I can't complain. And I agree..... too bad Marjory Razorblade is not in quad .
Now the David Bedford was available in SQ ! in France and down under Australia and New Zealand.
That I found surprising ...and yet the CD has been reported to be BBC Matrix H and not SQ .
Also strange but true Columbia/Virgin Records in the U.S. released a single LP of Kevin Coyne's -In Living Black And White ? with no quad indications? But it would be SQ as it was encoded on the 2 track UK master that Columbia would have used.
We have a lot of different quad systems utilized by Virgin Records ,when you think about it.
For instance...Mike Oldfield Tubular Bells , CD-4 by Virgin/Atlantic in the U.S. , then SQ in the UK , and then UD-4 in Japan by Nippon Columbia.
Ommadawn in SQ on CBS/VIRGIN in The U.S . and then QS in the UK (and maybe SQ as well) on Virgin UK .
David Bedford - Instructions For Angel's in BBC matrix H on Virgin UK but in SQ on Virgin France also in SQ on Virgin New Zealand and Australia .
