Ovation Quadraphonic Sampler

Ovation Quadraphonic Sampler DS246f front

Instead of doing what most labels would do, use the mixes from released albums, they remixed tracks in an attempt to overcome the limitations of the EV-4 decoder. This makes the tracks on this album very different from those on their respective albums, especially the ‘Rich Mountain Tower’ track.

More importantly, the tracks on this album should not be taken as representative as on those albums.

Artists include: Dick Schory, Hollins & Starr, Paul Horn, Joe Morello, Rich Mountain Tower, Don Tweedy, Ron Steele, Laura, Bobby Christian.

Release: DS246f

Source: EV-4 LP

Process: EV-4/II

    More like modern surround sampler albums, this includes a few tracks with racing cars, jet aircraft and sound effects whizzing between all the speakers.

    I have to say when listening to the Rich Montain Tower track I was simply enjoying it and I didn’t notice the different mix at all despite listening to that album only last weekend. It just goes to show you really have to listen carefully to identify different mixes.

      ‘HJ’ will be after ‘H’ as they are totally different

    Thanks for another freebie! Am I right that this is the debut of your EV-4/II process?

      This is the second of a batch of four EV-4 encoded albums released using the new EV-4/II process
