Offered for sale is an original still sealed CD-4 quadraphonic U.S. pressing of Love Will Keep Us Together by Captain & Tennille.
This LP has a different mix from the stereo release.
About this copy: This copy of Love Will Keep Us Together is an original 1975 quadraphonic pressing on the A&M label, encoded for CD-4 quadraphonic demodulators.
It will play just fine on stereo turntables, with a different mix.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact except for a missing piece (about 1″x3″) on the back cover near the song titles. There’s a bit of wear on the lower left hand corner.
There is a hype sticker attached to the wrap on the front that says, “QUAD CD-4 Compatible Discrete 4-Channel.”
A nice copy of a scarce Captain & Tennille LP and a very hard album to find in quad.
Background: Released in 1975, Love Will Keep Us Together was the debut LP from Captain & Tennille.
The album reached #2 on the U.S. album charts; the title track reached #1 on the U.S. singles charts.
There were three versions of the album released in the U.S. – a stereo version, a CD-4 encoded four-channel quadraphonic version, and a version with the vocals rerecorded in Spanish.
As debut albums go, Captain & Tennille’s coming-out party struck the right chord with their audience — and not just on the charts, although its showing there certainly outdid all expectations. But there are greater items of interest once you get past the hits, led by the bouncy title track and “The Way I Want to Touch You.” … However, wistful anthems like “Gentle Stranger” and “Honey Come Love Me” are quintessential snapshots of what they did best — providing a kinder, gentler response to the more cynical fare topping the charts at the time. Where Captain & Tennille wanted to go from here remained uncertain, but they were certainly off to a flying start here.
