Iguana – The Winds Of Alamar

29 May

Iguana - The Winds Of Alamar DS262f front

The group Iguana (Don Falk & Arthur Bod) from Maryland self produced their debut album titled “The Winds of Alamar” which was released on Quadratrak Records in 1975. Recorded at Quadraphonic Sound Studio in Nashville using the Sansui QS encoding system the effort revealed a six track record. In 1976 the United Artist label picked up the record adding two songs, dropping the quadraphonic effect and producing new art for the cover. Really bad cover art I might add. The stereo version is the common release with the quad record being somewhat hard to find. Their style is comparable to progressive rock fussed with west coast but I welcome your comments as well. Hope you enjoy. “Captain Beyond”

For those who know the original release of the album well, i have moved the decoded  QS  Channel Identification from the start to the end.
