I've been looking for a few things on this imprint for a long time - especially the
Paul Burwell / David Toop ‎– Burwell/Toop cassette [Quartz-Mirliton Cassettes ‎– QMC 1] (1977) and a quality LP rip of -
Max Eastley / Steve Beresford / Paul Burwell / David Toop - Whirled Music ‎[QUARTZ 005] (1980)
