Tonight @ 10pm on RadioMaxMusic.com it is another episode of The LP Lounge. What we’ve done is, rather than a true needle drop, we’ve used the unreleased Q4 reels, encoded them for QS and are playing both, in their entirety. Personally I prefer the resulting mixes to the the SACD and SQ releases – but that’s just me – why not listen in, and tell us what you think?

Tonight at 10 – sit back, relax, have a cigar, we’ll supply the Money – you (us and them) just have to Breathe. It’s 3 complete LPs – by Pink Floyd. They feature mixes you won’t find in the digital domain. We’ve taken the liberty of adding bits of the 1973 hit song “Money” in 5 of its key forms – Roger Waters original acoustic “demo”, the original stereo mix, before it was completed – and the actual release version as it appeared on the stereo LP, – later in the show we offer up a mix that was available in Germany, Australia and a few other countries (but not the US) – that one mixed using the SQ quadraphonic system. Finally (well not finally, actually in the middle of the show) we play the full DSOTH LP mixed using the QS system, as available to the Japanese market.

Atom Heart Mother kicks off the show and we wrap with Wish You Were Hear (those two mixed in SQ) – and fear not – I only talk in-between LPs – those we play in their entirety. So it’s Pink Floyd x 3 x 4 – wow!

Bobby Goldsboro (born January 18, 1941) is an American pop and country singer-songwriter. He had a string of pop and country hits in the 1960s and 1970s, including his signature No. 1 hit “Honey”, which sold over one million copies in the United States.

“Summer (the first time)”, a 1973 reminiscence about a 17-year-old boy’s first sexual experience with a 31-year-old woman, was a Top 25 hit in the U.S. and reached number 9 in the UK. Using a repeating piano riff, 12-string guitar, and an orchestral string arrangement, the song was suggestive enough to spark some controversy. A follow-up, “Hello Summertime”, was written by Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway and hit No. 14 in the UK in September 1974.

 

 

Poco is an American country rock band originally formed by Richie Furay, Jim Messina and Rusty Young. Formed following the demise of Buffalo Springfield in 1968, Poco was part of the first wave of the West Coast country rock genre. The title of their first album, Pickin’ Up the Pieces, is a reference to the break-up of Buffalo Springfield. Throughout the years Poco has performed in various groupings, and is still active.

Crazy Eyes is the fifth studio album (and sixth album overall) released by the American country rock band Poco. Released in 1973, Crazy Eyes was the album with which founding member Richie Furay ended his original tenure with the group.

Tonight, Monday, on RadioMaxMusic we drop the needle on 3 Guess Who LPs on, the LP Lounge. #10, Road Food and the Best of. AND – since RCA trimmed the opening of American Woman on the Best of LP, we went back to the multi tracks, and remixed it. – oh, did I forget to mention that all three LPs have been demodulated, then encoded into the QS? – well, they have! so come on over for more than 2 hours of…. Guess Who!?! – It starts at 10pm, US East Coast time.

#10 is the eleventh studio album by the Canadian rock band The Guess Who. The title derives from its being the band’s tenth overall release. (That number seems to include both a live album and best-of compilation, but to not include offshoot releases of the band’s early recordings prior to 1969.) It was originally released in 1973 by RCA Records.

The 2012 Iconoclassic reissue marked the first time the album was made available on CD in the U.S., as well as sporting both dramatically upgraded sound quality compared to all other CD releases, and a previously unreleased, stripped-down mix of “Glamour Boy” without the sound effects and crowd noise.

A Quadraphonic mix was available on both vinyl and Quadraphonic 8-track tape formats.

Road Food is the twelfth studio album by the Canadian rock band The Guess Who and the last to feature guitarists Kurt Winter and Donnie McDougall.

A Quadraphonic mix was available on both vinyl and Quadraphonic 8-track tape formats.

On its first CD issuing, the side two tracks precede the side one tracks, making “Clap for the Wolfman”, “Pleasin’ for Reason”, “Road Food”, and “Ballad of the Last Five Years” tracks 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively.

The Best of The Guess Who is the fourth compilation album by The Guess Who and was released in 1971. It reached number 12 on the Billboard LPs chart and has been issued on CD twice; the first CD issue in 1988 on RCA, replaced the single version of American Woman with the longer album version; and then a digitally remastered reissue issued by Legacy Recordings in 2006 with 3 bonus tracks and the single version restored. Side Two of the album consists of five songs from their previous album Share the Land; “Hand Me Down World”, “Bus Rider”, “Share the Land”, “Do You Miss Me Darlin’?” and an edited single version of “Hang On to Your Life” (without the Psalm 22 excerpt that closes the album version).

Tonight, Monday, at 10pm on the LP Lounge we bring needle drops, on 3 great women of music. Dottie West, Dionne Warwick and Judy Collins.  We’ve taken the original surround sound vinyl pressings (CD-4 they used to call it) – run them through a decoder (more properly, a demodulator) to extract the 4 discrete channels of sound – then (since we can’t play discrete 4 channel sound) we have encoded all three to be compatible with most home theater systems (QS, RM, Dolby pro logic) – are playing them in surround sound for you – AND – you don’t even need 4 ears (though it wouldn’t hurt, and it would be easier to keep your glasses from sliding off)!
