    This is great fun to listen to, wonderful movement of sound between the speakers. And the Q4 transfer has absolutely gorgeous sound quality, well done Captain Beyond. Despite it's claimed merits as the best 1970s legacy quad system, I've heard some ropey Q4 transfers but thankfully this isn't one of them.

    Good looking out Captain Beyond, for both the transfer and the info on the Billboard Magazine article. It's really amazing to see these beauties getting a second lease on life through the love of those who rescue them from oblivion. Thank you!

    I enjoy this album as well as all of Montenegro's quadraphonic releases. I think this title may have been the 1st quad Q4 released by RCA. Hugo used the concept of psychoacoustics during production to achieve the movement of sound that we hear. A small article in the August 5th, 1972 issue of Billboard (page 54) explains some of the 'behind the scenes' methods for this particular title. Enjoy the music! Link below:

    I enjoy this album immensely. Bought three CD-4 copies trying to find one that would play, and they all had distortion in the same place. Partially my cartridge at fault, but they had traces of it even with a known good cart I borrowed. Hearing it like this is just wonderful. Exemplary quad mix, maybe too wacky for some people but I like it. Thanks.

    Do me a favour, if that's all you've got to say…. don't bother. This blog is about the music, not the bloody covers!

    The artwork shows a cover for an RCA QuadraDisc.
    It makes a lot more sense to think it's an open reel, though…

    It's actually from a Q4 reel-reel tape

    Wow! That is one lively album!
    I never knew his work beyond 'Hang 'Em High'
    and 'The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly'.
    I can't believe that much discreet sound can
    come off a vinyl record. Fun! Thanks!
