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.)
