This week on The Vinyl Resting Place – we’re twice as good (or bad, depending on your point of view). As a way of introducing a new feature we hope to present each week, We are playing 2 complete quadraphonic LPs as well as a smattering of tracks from various LPs of the 70s.
Here’s the neat thing about this type of Quadraphonic recordings – they were designed to be compatible with standard stereo playback/broadcast – BUT – you can still experience the effect if you listen to the show either through headphones (the phase shifting tricks the brain into thinking sounds are coming from behind you) – or if you play the show through a modern surround sound system.
So we’ve gone with the greats – hour 1 we offer up the complete Dark Side of the Moon LP by Pink Floyd. Never released in the US, so we had to send to Australia for our copy.
Hour 2 – we play the the complete Greatest Hits album by Sly and the Family Stone (we’ll even throw in a bonus hit or two).
Finally – our third hour together offers up some classic tracks with mixes you are probably only familiar with, if you’ve been a loyal listener (or know either one of those who are).
So join the fun – and starting next week, you’ll be subjected to tracks mixed for quad that you can only hear on The Vinyl Resting place – because we’re taking the multi track master tapes, and doing the mixing ourselves.
