Quad - Quad LP (1997, Acme Records)

Quad or QUAD was the name of a solo music project by Gary Ramon.

During his six-year hiatus from Sun Dial, Ramon embarked on an ambitious solo project, Quad, which combined ambient electronica with kraut rock. The result was a pair of self-titled albums. The first of these was released on Ramon's own Acme Records in 1997 as a 1000-copy limited edition on 12" clear vinyl with a transparent sleeve. The second Quad album was released in 1998 on the Prescription label as a 99-copy limited edition LP.

A 1999 American rerelease of the first album on CD and 10" LP on the Man's Ruin label was scheduled but eventually cancelled.

Both albums are now highly sought-after collectors' items. (Description from Wikipedia.)

Everyone should get this!!! I think this is the original rip from MutantSound (just to give him the credits. You also get the cover art there)). You can get the second Quad LP at mysteryposter.blogspot. Have a nice trip!
