Vanguard Quadraphonic Demonstration Album - Leon Grand

Aquarius
Vanguard Quadraphonic Demonstration Album
The Leon Grand Orchestra
VSQ-4X
1970

Fun "Op/Mod" art cover and title track. Aquarius aside, the rest of the LP, while "pleasant" in terms of "mood" sounds a dated for 1970 and does nothing to support the groovin' cover art "vibe".

From the back cover: The two sides of the V-shape (45/45) groove on this record can contain four channels, by employing different motions of the needle; two vectored for the two basic stereo modulations, and two double helical motions for the two rear channels. Any stereo cartridge is capable of reproducing all this information. When played through a 2-channel stereo system, the four signals are combined to yield conventional stereo with the full signal information, frequency response and dynamic range of the standard stereo recording.

As usual, the sound quality of this quad recording, sound awesome on my stereo system.
