OO you just wish they were crickets. Crickets are for late summer evenings and hardly intrude. Cicadas on the other hand.. Very loud and go most of the night. Will make you into a psychotic insect hunter. Apparently still survive in Nevada bomb testing grounds the day after tests. Cockroaches don't have a lookin.
Lucky for you cold climate livers, they don't like the cold.

What's with the cricket pic? Was it LBW? coz they wickets look to be standing.
LOOK OUT!!!
OOPS..

Stormbringer, eh? I seem to recall that was released in quad in the land of e pluribus unum. <dons anecdote sombero> About that time, I was working in the hi-fi/vinyl trade, and we got our hands on the quad version of The Dark Side of the Moon (reel-to-reel, I think). Sounded awesome in the acoustically near-perfect demo room one evening after hours!

Just a heads up that vinyl/quadro (as opposed to stereo -- I guess that's what your "quad" means) was price and technology prohibitive when initially released -- well in "my side" of the world, at least. My only "spatial" setup came after 2000 with the 5.1 & co., computer/digital tracks.

So yea, Stormbringer (actually the single Stormbringer/Love Don't Mean a Thing). The second side grew on me, even before I had to put aside a long and very exclusive appreciation of Gillan.

Prohibitive price-wise, certainly! The cost of some of the kit in that demo room was eye-watering!
