F.A.Q.

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

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

Requests?
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.

Donations?

  35. Every single bootleg, and even the Ebbett's version of this originate from the same heavily noise-reduced source. This however is the best and most original I have ever heard these. I cannot thank you enough.

  45. 2nd bootleg I purchased (Paul Simon Songbook was the 1st). I played mine ad naseum, memorizing many parts. My friends and I still reference many of the skits. Thank you Prof for providing such an excellent quality product. This is a nice surprise :-)

  46. Prof. Stoned,

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I really love the Jimi Hendrix and the Doors mono versions. (As a matter of fact, I love all of your mono versions.) I can't wait to hear the Beatles' Christmas disc. Thank you for posting it! Your work is invaluable!

  47. I think I downloaded the Ebbett's release and a couple others when I was a teen, but never listened to the whole thing for some reason. I was always thinking of tracking this down again, but wasn't sure what the best available version would be. Now that I see that you've ripped this and taken care of the work for me, you've taken the hassle off my shoulders. Any release of yours is a guarantee in having the best-available quality. Thank you! :)

  51. I can't seem to figure out how to download anything. Do I need an account? When I click link it goes to a page that shows text but that's all.

  52. Copy either one of the lines that start with http and put those in the address bar of your browser. You will be redirected to the site where you can d/l.

  60. Just discovered this place. Great stuff!
    Actually, I'm not the only Beatles fan/collector to hesitate between your HR files and the set officially released by Apple just a couple of weeks ago. Looks like both are a must have!
    Huge thanks from me and many others!
    Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll explore further and see all the treasures you've upped here...
    Merry Xmas!

  61. Nice post for those who do not have it. Last X-Mas I got the vinyl collection 7" but a CD version of it. Great job here, sound as good or better. By the way, like most hardcore collectors, have many versions of this title.

  62. Thanks mate

    In time for Xmas this year as well

    ReplyDelete
  63. So, Prof, am I right in assuming that the LP "Master" was created (from the flexis) in the UK and the US got a copy tape? Have you ever heard the original UK "From Then To You" LP and is it any much difference between the Apple pressing?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Thank you SO MUCH. I was desperately looking for mono copies of S&G if there was at least a copy of a single song. I never knew that I would be able to find a treasure house like this site. You widened my knowledge of music.
