Babe Ruth – Babe Ruth

21 Dec

Babe Ruth - Babe Ruth CB034 front

This is Babe Ruth’s 4th LP and was only offer in quad format on a Capitol Q8 cartridge. In 1975 the Captain must have been living under a barnacle at the time as this band slipped under his radar. I found this a very enjoyable listen with good use of surround mixing techniques. Stadium anthem material ‘Somebody’s Nobody’ as well as smooth FM tunes ‘We People Who Are Darker Than Blue’ are offered here. ‘Jack O’ Lantern’ how come I never heard that song on the radio… demographics? Then right into ‘Private Number’ that should be another stadium anthem or top 40 hit. Followed by my favorite cut ‘Turquoise’. This rare tape was donated toward the cause by member ‘rockyofpittsburgh’. Enjoy! CB

Two Rick Wakeman Special Editions

18 Dec

Universal are continuing with their support of the quadraphonic/surround market by re-releasing two of Rick Wakeman’s albums, complete with the original quadraphonic mixes. They are ‘Six Wives of Henry VIII’ and ‘Myths and Legends of King Arthur…’

They are being released as two disc sets, one being a DVD-A/V which will include the same streams as my releases allowing everyone to play them.

I’ve added some links to the section on the right and have repaired the two that were faulty.

Please support Universal in their on going support for the quad/surround market, if nobody buys them then they’ll stop releasing new titles.
