    I’m a bit late getting this one but I’m pleasantly surprised how good it is. The music is pretty decent and the fidelity really nice. As for the tracks themselves, it’s always nice to hear different takes of some of these war horses. Thanks again for another superb transfer Cap!

    There were lifts with speakers in all four corners of the roof for playing this in quad?! It’d be cool if there were. You have to ensure you faced the correct way, probably facing the lift door.

    I don’t think hum is a Q8 artefact, there’s nothing in the way Q8 works which is going to cause hum. Hiss, wow and flutter, restricted frequency range yes, but not hum.

    Thanks Owen glad you liked it. I enjoyed Apache, Sleep Walk and mostly the entire title. Do find it strange to now enjoy what 40 years ago was deemed elevator muzak. The Exotic Guitars did have one other quad release and several stereo LP’s. I too wish the hum and hiss were absent but accept the limitations of the Q8 format and hope everyone understands as well. Enjoy!

    I like this. Classical Gas and the James Bond theme are great, and the Shadows number is fun too. Some good old fashioned mains hum audible between tracks but that’s probably on the master tape (Q8 for all its faults can’t be blamed for that).

    (So what happened to CB002?) Good to see another Captain Beyond release.

      The answer to this question has been realized via the February 7th release of CB002 Carly Simon – Carly Simon. As always thank you for your interest & comments.
