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?
Get outta here!

Thanks! I had abysmal needledrop of mono LP before and was assumed it was fold.. It seems it's not so. Didn't Fontana started to issue folds pretty early on? Same with Tangerine Dream by Kaleidoscope

The mono seem slightly different to my ears. But since this was recorded on 3-track only, the balances were pretty much already locked into those tracks. The sleeve notes indicate they were thinking in stereo...

Thank you. "Parachute" is an all-time favorite of mine, but these earlier albums have some gems, to be sure.

I'd really love to hear a needle-drop of a mono pressing of the Pretty Things album 'S.F. Sorrow'. Please post if you ever find one. Many thanks for sharing so many gems

The 1998 snapper cd sounds nearly identical and its from tape.

Thanks a lot for this HQ rip of the mono mix of this much underated album :-)))

One of my favorite bands. And this often maligned album by The pretty Things never sounded better. This is the version to judge it by.

Very happy to see this one. I've never found a decent rip of this one. Thanks very much. I hadn't stopped by your blog in a few months and I'm delighted to see all the new treats.

A diamond of an album and not easy to find in mono, so many thanks!

Fantastic, thank you Prof. Stoned! I wonder if you would ever consider ripping the LP The Electric Banana - The Sixties" as it has stereo mixes of those songs?
