Carly Simon – No Secrets

12 Sep

scan0004Link

Here sourced from Q4 is Carly Simon’s third album ‘No Secrets’ which is considered to be her commercial breakthrough. Released in 1972 and produced at Trident studios by Richard Perry. A lot of speculation has occurred over the song ‘You’re So Vain’. I don’t know of any other song to rhythm the words yacht, apricot, and gavotte. The photograph for the cover was shot in front of the Porobello Hotel, on Stanley Gardens in London’s Notting Hill. Must have been a chilly day. Enjoy CB

Maria Muldaur – Waitress In The Donut Shop

Maria Muldaur - Waitress In The Donut Shop CB053 frontLink

The 2nd solo album by Maria Muldaur is offered here sourced from a Q8 provided by member joeerand. Thank you Joe. It has amazed me how the members here on the DS Quad Archive have made wonderful donations of their relic tapes and LP’s in support on this blog. Equipment too! The best part is I have made new friends from across this planet right here on this archive. Their desire to share is the fuel that feeds the engine of what I can offer here for the enjoyment of all members. I wish to take a moment to thank all members who support the preservation of quadraphonic music. Also if you don’t mind I will call out a few friends that have sent the Captain material to transfer. I wish to thank them publicly. In no particular order oxforddickie, lupineassin, rockysquirrrel, SteveTuznik and joeerand thank you very much for your caring and sharing. You have material you have sent the Captain that has not yet been released. Stay the course and with time permitting I plan for all to find anchor here in this wonderful archive.

Oh the release. That’s what we are here for. Hope you folks enjoy Maria. I sure did because it is a real toe tapper. The who’s who on this album is out of this world. Paul Butterfield’s Harmonica on ‘I’m A Woman’ takes me out of this world too. As always enjoy. CB

Eyes Right

7 Sep

It would appear than many people who visit this blog are unaware of the section to the right of where your read. It’s called ‘Blog Information

This is where i announce any changes to how the blog is running, if an issue has arisen or if i’m not going to be around. Please keep an eye on this, on both blogs, as things do change.

Perfect example is the two items there now, this is an extension to the blog which i’m hoping members will see as a worthwhile addition, allowing them to keep their collections ‘up to date’, so to speak.

So please keep an eye on it
