The Famley Guitar Band – Tie A Yellow Ribbon ‘Round The Old Oak Tree

23 Aug

The Famley Guitar Band -Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree CB001 front

This 1st release by “The Famley Guitar Band” is sourced from a Q8 tape. They had six titles offered on Q4 reels and Q8 cartridges. No known vinyl exists. Little information is available about them or these titles either. It is thought that Ampex, who at the time was a large tape duplicator for the major labels, was behind this act. Wishing to grab a larger piece of the quadraphonic action they assembled a house band, probably from Chicago, and recorded these instrumental hits of the period.

So kick back in the bean bag chair, turn on the lava lamp and drift away.  Captain Beyond

Captain Beyond Releases

23 Aug

Many of you know of ‘Captain Beyond’ as both the source of some Q4 releases and as the middle man in the recent few Q8 releases. He has now, bravely, decided to start releasing his own series of Q8 & Q4 quadraphonic transfers freely here. He has a collection containing some rare gems, many of which probably haven’t been seen or heard since the 70’s.

The first release will be as soon as possible, please help him by continuing to seed his releases.
