The Captains New Ship

25 Aug

It is with the greatest pleasure that i can announce a new blog dedicated to this wonderful world of Quadraphonic sound. But as i type this there’s also a touch of sadness personally as it’s been quite a journey we’ve had together over these past years. But although it’s a parting of the waves may i wish all of the best, and safe seas, to the Captain and all that join him on his new voyage:

Celebrations & Transitions

The 28th of August will celebrate three years since CB001 debuted on the Dreaming-Spires Quadraphonic Archive-II. Looking further back October 26th will mark four years since the first collaboration between OD and CB. Perhaps some longtime Dreaming Spires members recall that it was DS211 Arlo Guthrie. Where has all the time gone. 

OD provides the quad community with real treasures and has done so for many years. He has always been welcoming to the Captain and helpful in every way. His generosity over the years to selfishly post the CB titles to his blog has been a wonderful gift. He has made me feel so comfortable and at home there that sometimes I take my boots off.

However life is about change and we all realize that nothing stays the same. Since day one OD has done all the legwork concerning posted the CB titles and related chores without any compensation requested. He will happily continue but it would be rude of the Captain to always be expecting sometime for nothing. Time brings transitions and it is now time to jump in with both feet and sink or swim. 

Therefore the Captain is proud to announce another quad blog. “Captain Beyond’s Quadraphonic Wormhole” was chosen as the name since Blogs are Like Chickens was already taken. This new CB blog will require a lot of time , effort and support from you the quad community to grow into a useful quadraphonic archive. Transitioning the CB releases to their own site is a big change and I do hope it proceeds smoothly. Another change forthcoming is future CB release will be offered via a nominal donation to help offset related expenses.

The Captain wants to extend a welcome to all and invites everyone to stop over and have a look around. There is not much to offer yet but allow it some time to mature. I do hope these transitions are viewed in a positive way and with understanding. The Captain did not get the boot, so don’t think of this as an exit but rather a function of growth. Perhaps just another portal in the wall as if were. Really now can the world have too many quad blogs. CB
