Quadraphonic Recordings
NEVER ISSUED
6-6-2014 VERSION 1.9

   This is a list of quadraphonic recordings that were advertised but never
released.
   Over many years some quad titles have been listed in record collecting
guides, advertisements and magazine articles. Record companies planned on
some titles being issued towards the end of Quad, while they issued catalog
numbers for the releases, quad was dying and many titles were never issued.
  This list was created to help identify what titles definitely DO NOT exist
and to put an end to the rumors.
  It should not be assumed by looking at this list that a specific title was
not issued, It could be that it was not issued in the format listed on this page.
You should always check the Quad Discography to see if a specific title might 
have been issued in another format than what is listed here.

  For titles that are rumored to exist but did not originate Catalogs, refer 
to the RUMORS discography. 

  For titles that were thought to be quad but have been determined NOT to be
quad, refer to the Released Recordings that are NOT Quad discography. 

    For additions to this list, include:
    1. Artist
    2. Title of album
    3. Record label
    4. Catalog number
    5. Quadraphonic format (QS, SQ, CD4, UMX)
    6. Format - LP (vinyl), Q8 (Quad 8-track), QR (Quad Reel to Reel) 
         since catalog numbers change w/format
    7. Add a D in front of the tape format code listed above if Dolby
         was used on the tape.
    8. Country of origin (U.S., U.K., Finland, etc.) since catalog
       numbers change with country of origin       
    9.  Year of release
    10. Any comments that might be helpful like who distributes the
       recording and address and phone number if known.
