Jose Feliciano – Compartments

Jose Feliciano - Compartments CB045 front 2.jpg

 

From 1973 ‘Compartments’ was Jose Feliciano’s 16th album. Available in three quadraphonic flavors Quad Reel, Quad 8-Track cartridge or Quadradisc CD-4 LP. This conversion is from a Q4 source. Interesting group of guest artist with Leon bringing a lot to enjoy on this album. ‘Me and Baby Jane’ works well for my ear. ‘Sea Cruise’ is fun. The title track is also very enjoyable. Hard to pick a favorite as there are several. If pressed for my top choice I would have to say the next to last track ‘I’m Leavin’’. Played that one over and over again. Hope you folks enjoy it as much as I did. CB

From 1973 ‘Imagination’ was Gladys Knight & The Pips 11th studio album and their 1st release on Buddah after leaving Motown. This includes their signature song ‘Midnight Train To Georgia’ which was their only #1 on the Billboard Top 100. This album also spawned several other successful singles which you may recall. According to the Quadraphonic Discography the quad mix was available on Q4 as well as Q8 and was their only quad title. This conversion is from a Q8 graciously provided by lupineassassin. Enjoy CB

Focus – Live At The Rainbow

Focus - Live At The Rainbow CB041 front.jpg

 

Released in 1973 and only available in quad format on… yes Virginia you guessed it the old Q8 cartridge. This example was provided by ‘rockysquirrrel’. We should be thankful for Rocky’s contributions who has contributing several tapes that are offered here on the blog. We all benefit from his generosity.

It should be noted that we discover yet another Q8 that has misaligned channels from the factory. While listening it became apparent that something was amiss. The entire sound-scape was turned 90° to the left. A quick twist of 90° to the right provided a fix. Back in 1973 the only way to achieve such a fix was to rearrange your patch cords. Unless you were in your automobile which this format was primarily intended. It was things such as this that would have put off the consumer for quad back in day don’t you think. Never the less here we are now and if you have an opinion or comment concerning what you do or don’t hear please feel welcome to share it. Enjoy CB

We have The Best of Bread sourced from a Q4 provided by member Steve Tuznik. This was a 1973 release from Elektra records. Sure wish it included ‘Guitar Man’.  CB
