We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort.

  • 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....

Ooh! Great stuff! How is the Quad on this one please Ed?

I've just realised this is the only one of his studio Quad mixes I haven't actually heard, the SQ LP is a tough nut to get in good shape cheap :eek: ..

..tbh I'm not that mad about the material on this one.. so am hanging out til I can find one that won't run me nigh on £30 quid to import from the USA :yikes

I remember the mix being discrete and creative enough for what, admittedly, isn't exactly exciting material, heh. Personally, I think the LOVE STORY album had the most interesting mix of those Andy had in quad, haven't heard that one in years, though. A '6' here, would have rated higher if the material were stronger.

Now dammit Ed...you're killing me. :) My interest in Andy is strictly personal agenda. You know how it is....he's a piece of my childhood as my parents used to spin his vinyls all the time. I wasn't old enough to have my own stuff...so it holds a very special place in my memory banks. So, whether or not one likes the content is not important to me...I love the content as it brings back warm memories of a simpler time and a vivid memory of my pappy laying on the floor, with his head propped up by a silly drinking glass....singing along to the Andy LP's (and Mathis for that matter)

Ah, such memories I'd like to relive...

Same here GOS. In 1966 my Dad bought a Mercury Colony Park with a factory 8-track.
We were serenaded on many long vacation trips by Andy Williams.
Not to mention the Christmas Specials which were a staple in our house.

Although I do remember my parents watching Lawrence Welk--and Sullivan, of course, we all did that--Andy didn't register much on my radar beyond a few hits like "Can't Get Used to Losing You." I came to enjoy *some* of his work more later on, though not as great music but as fun kitsch of its kind, of which the "Love Story" single has to be some kind of summit (you couldn't pay me to watch that damned film ever again, though).

I'm sure most of the elder (yikes!) amongst us has similar 'guilty pleasure' artists and records, or stuff that our parents played while we were seeking out rock and soul (that was definitely me!)

I'll try to add more pop to the listings here, that genre keeps getting, along with country, the shortest shrift.
