Ever heard of quadraphonic stereo? Of course you haven't... you're not dinosaurs! But when I saw the new Joan Baez song lesson I let out a little yelp. "Diamonds and Rust" was the first quad stereo album I ever bought. It was one of the last ones too as quad, AKA four-track stereo, didn't last too long.

I'm looking forward to the song lesson... just as soon as the lessons show up. That problem is back again.

I somehow incomprehensibly didn't know about this album or forgot about it or...something. Playing on Spotify now. Thank you for drawing my attention back to it.

Are we by chance going to have the Judas Priest version of this song as well?

Shoot... they don't even have the Baez version posted yet. Preview sounds pretty good, though.

Looks like it's fixed now!
