Hi-Rez & CD Quality downloads of long-lost MONO mixes and other curiosa, meticulously restored from the best sources. Hendrix, The Who, Beatles, Love, Mothers, Stones, Them, The Dead, etc. Free for All!
Who? Retired sound engineer who loves music from the 60's & early 70's.
What? My aim is to make rare stuff publicly available again with the best possible sound quality.
Swooooon. :D Nice to see another one of the fruits of your labors here, and so soon, too. I know that aksman (on Avax) ripped some Paul Butterfield, but those were the Sundazed stereo reissues.ReplyDelete
(Interracial, indeed. I see not one, but TWO black men there! Makin' progress, America, but it would take a funky band from San Francisco to push that notion to the forefront...)
Ah yes, Sly & Co. Been gettin' more into his works as off late. Maybe -who knows- I'll find a clean copy of the mono "A Whole New Thing" one day.ReplyDelete
Ooh! Didn't know you were a fan of theirs. I truly hope you have good luck with that. With mono copies of Sly/Fam's first two LPs being very hard to find, I've given up on that idea for now.Delete
I've put more thought into my other idea, having a compilation of their mono 45s made. That seems more doable, IMO, as they're much more common on eBay (in fair condition, too). Plus, some of the 45 mixes have actually seen CD release, in great quality, too, no less (thank you Sony & Rhino). I don't have any actual way to get this done, however, it's just been an intense thought process and not much else. Maybe one day...
This sounds great, thank you!ReplyDelete
Fantastic! One of my favorite albums ever, I have an ancient battered vinyl I bought when it was first released, it will be great to hear it properly again. Saw them a couple of times in Manchester (UK) in '66 (2 gigs at different venues in one night actually!), they were just amazing.ReplyDelete
Thank you very much!ReplyDelete
Great album, great band. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Is this the only Paul Butterfield Blues Band album to be released in mono?ReplyDelete
I've been aching to hear this for a long time. ANy chance of putting it somewhere other than r@pidsh@re? Five hours and it's only half downloaded!--BillReplyDelete
thanks, have you heard of a online and brick store called "the record collector" in bordentown nj. i visited last holidays and they have tons. also have shows there a couple nights a week . cool vibe w/ all the vinyl on the walls..ReplyDelete
Just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work you do for us bringing us these rare and hard-to-find mono mixes!ReplyDelete
First, I want to say thank you for so many great albums. I find stuff here I can't find anywhere else. Any chance you could post this on filefactory? Thanks.ReplyDelete
Well, I don't know if I did something wrong yesterday or you are just quick in fixing the link, but I got it today from filecloud. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Thank you once again.ReplyDelete
Another great one. Very clean transfer. I can't believe you were the first one to actually play this gem. Thank you again for your hard work.ReplyDelete
Download links are down. Would love to hear this in mono :)ReplyDelete
Thank you very, very much professor!ReplyDelete
Recently discovered the delights of Mr Butterfield,thanks a lot.ReplyDelete
Well I loved the stereo mix for years, but... did my ears did not know what they were missing! Prof, thank you for this amazing rip of a lovely clean sounding pressing - detailed, punchy and direct. On Blues With A Feeling, Bloomfield's guitar never sounded better for me... what quicksilver fingerwork. What a tight unit - superb musicianship - almost the perfect debut. The mono mix is much better - my go to version now. Thank you again ;)ReplyDelete
Thank you profstoned. Excellent job.ReplyDelete
This transfer is flawless and easily overtakes any CD copy out there. Thank you so much for uploading this.ReplyDelete
another old fave, time to enjoy it in mono...thanks from the heart...ReplyDelete
Blown away not just by the sound of the two Butterfield Band LPs you've tackled, but that the files are still available a decade later!ReplyDelete
