A model of strongly coupled quadrupole and octupole vibrations and rotations is applied to describe non-yrast alternating-parity sequences in even-even nuclei and split parity-doublet spectra in odd-mass nuclei. In even-even nuclei the yrast alternating-parity sequence includes the ground-state band and the lowest negative-parity levels with odd angular momenta, while the non-yrast sequences include excited β-bands and higher negative-parity levels. In odd-mass nuclei the yrast levels are described as low-energy rotation-vibration modes coupled to the ground single-particle (s.p.) state, while the non-yrast parity-doublets are obtained as higher-energy rotation-vibration modes coupled to excited s.p. configurations. We show that the extended model scheme describes the yrast and non-yrast quadrupole-octupole spectra in both even-even and odd-A nuclei. The involvement of the reflection-asymmetric deformed shell model to explain the single-particle motion and the Coriolis interaction in odd nuclei is discussed.
