INFO > I initially assumed that this bargain bin find might be one of the first covermount CDs included with a music periodical. However, “QCD” is a 1986 budget sampler compiled in association with Q Magazine to promote the release of Virgin Records’ back catalog on compact disc. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this product is the magnificent mastering from before the advent of the dreaded loudness war.

  1. Thank you very much, nice sampler

  2. great classics on here . Thanks

  3. Hi Shelf, great work as always, just one minor issue though, what happened to the font on this site? It’s very dificult to read

    • Interesting that you should mention that – I don’t know why, but different fonts display on the blog depending on the browser, device, and/or connection. The font was consistent everywhere during the first year that I used this theme (Mystique), and then one day it changed. This bug has always annoyed me but I don’t know if anything can be done to correct it.
