A Happy New Year To All Quadraphiles

31 Dec

I know it’s a silly thing to say as a change in the date doesn’t mean a thing, but i’ll be glad when 2015 is well and truly over. It hasn’t been a good year, period.

So, all i want to say is i hope that you all enjoy the evening and i wish, and hope, we all have a peacefull and tolerant 2016.

Q-Review

I’ve added a new section to the drop-down section above where i do a basic review of the official quad reissues

Quad’s Resurgence?

22 Dec

Like anyone whose purchased something from Amazon, i get bombarded with emails offering this and that, mainly music. One item caught my eye and following it up proved very fruitful for us Quadies. Another label has joined the slowly growing band wagon by releasing no fewer than twelve albums on six SACD’s. What makes this even more interesting is that each disc costs only £9.99. That’s only a fiver per album! Below is what’s on offer in what i hope will turn out to be a growing catalogue of quad titles. They’re available on their website or via Amazon, please support them, the more sold, the greater the possibility we’ll see the catalogue expanded.

Barclay James Harvest – Once Again

18 Dec

Barclay James Harvest - Once Again DS201p r1 booklet

The only reason i have reissued this because i created a new disc with the addition of the one live track from the BBC ‘In Concert’ broadcast i have. Otherwise it’s exactly the same as the previous version.

Christmas With Ronnie Aldrich

CWRA front

Freebie Link

Here we have a collection of seasonal standards from Ronnie Aldrich with his two pianos and The London Festival Orchestra. A Phase 4 release on the London label only available in quad on Q4 and Q8 format. This request from Q! was sourced from a Q8. Again I hope this music brings some holiday cheer to your ears during this Christmas season. If only hate could be removed from the hearts and minds of all people on this place we call earth. What a wonderful world that would be. Peace on earth and good will towards mankind. Enjoy CB

Well it’s happened again, but this time i’m completely baffled how PayPal cottoned on. Hmmm.

So that’s it unless a workable solution can be found.

Admiral Presents Christmas In Four Channel Sound

5 Dec

Admiral Presents Christmas In Four Channel Sound CB059 front

Freebie Link

The Captain is happy to offer his first seasonal CB release. The genesis for this release was a request made by blog member Q! Luck afforded locating a sealed copy of this Christmas LP. A flyer insert for a Christmas music book offer was found inside and is included with this release just for fun and because it was there. It would be advisable not to send your $3.00 off for this musical treasury. After 41 years I suspect it would not be honoured. Hope this seasonal release brings some holiday cheer to you and yours. Enjoy CB

John Lee Hooker – Free Beer And Chicken

1 Dec

John Lee Hooker - Free Beer and Chicken DS536ch front

This album does sound like a collection of recordings pieced together to form an album, but for me it’s the inclusion of flute, violin and even a mono synth, that lifts this into the interesting category.
