I have a turntable and a nice record collection, mostly LP's from the 60's & early 70's.

My aim is to make rare stuff (in glorious mono or sometimes stereo) publicly available again with the best possible sound quality.

Generally, no. I select my projects very critically. Vinyl condition is everything. I tend not to work with records that are in less than pristine condition.

Get outta here!

  1. You're the greatest, Prof!


  2. Prof., you're definitely dangerous man - you read my thoughts.
    my favourite album of S&G in rare mono variant...
    tremendous work.

    and S&G Bookends rip also mirrored.
    thanks oncve more!

  3. I've never heard the mono mix at all, so this is gonna be a treat. I'm also grabbing your transfer of Bookends, which I somehow overlooked. Thanks!

  4. Welcome dude.

    To all; newly made artwork by ‘Q’ has been added as off today. It can be downloaded separately. Look into the RS links.

  5. What A Great Album.The Sound Of This Mono Mix Is By Far The Best That I've Heard In Years. Thank You,Sherri

  6. Wow! Listening to this now. Can only hope S of S and Wed Morning 3AM in the pipeline!

  7. Honest to goodness, this and your Bookends are the finest sounding S&G I have ever heard. Nothing else comes close.

  8. Thanks again, Prof. Always thought "The Dangling Conversation" was highly underrated. I got the whole bunch of Qcumbaman´s US mono rips last year but I`m sure yours will the nicest - het lekkerste!


  9. I can confirm, DEFINITIVE ! Great transfer.


  10. thanks very much once more for this and the other new ones. by the way, am i the only one who looks forward to reading the "notes.txt"?

  11. Must have been an error on the server end when I tried; thanks!

  12. Thank you so much for this. My Dad had this album and Sounds of Silence sitting in his record collection for years. Both are mono pressings and as soon as I put this on the turntable the sound was so much different than what I had heard before. This was my introduction to true mono vinyl and it blew me away. Unfortunately, the opening track has quite the gaping gash in the groove which manages to leave a very noticeable annoyance while listening to this fantastic album.

    Your rip captures that mono sound perfectly and I am so thrilled to know I have a copy that I can go to over and over. I also played your rip over the speakers for my Dad and he smiled and said, "this is how I remember it." haha. Thank you again for the hard work. Vinyl ripping is no cake-walk that is for sure! The long labor is worth the final product though. Cheers!


  13. Beautiful work. Great to hear it again.

  14. Prof,

    Any chance you might re-up the old version of this (or at least part) that included the alternate UK stereo mix of "Homeward Bound"? Thank you!

  15. And I'm sorry, please forgive my bad manners... I've been enjoying the heck out of every second of these S&G mono rips for a few months now--thank you so much for the fine work!

  16. I don't even have that one anymore!

  17. Was not aware these mono mixes would sound so great. It's like discovering this album for the second time, after all these years.
    Thanks you for a perfect rip, Professor!

  18. Professor, I was wandering what my musical life would be without your work...I remain always grateful...cheers

  19. I can't download this one or Sounds of Silence. It says the servers are overloaded basically, but it's been saying that for quite a while. If you could check on this or do a re-up I'd really appreciate it

  20. I really dig your wonderful rips! Thanks!

  21. As good as the MoFi SACD is, this takes me back to my living room in the fall of 1966 and hearing this album for the very first time (I was born in 1976!).
