  2. I've been listening to the V1.0 for ten years now, how time flies! What were the eq applied for? I think the v1.0 was damn good. Thank you dear Prof.

  8. ... is it Christmas already ? I can't thank you enough, Prof. Quick question, how does the 2018 Analogue Production (Bernie Grundman remaster) stand up to this 2010 Legacy vinyl ?

  9. I find Bernie's approach too hands off. George Marino nailed these 2010 Legacy editions. Truth is, the tapes need some work and Marino did it just right.

  10. You can hear the difference immediately in the guitar distortion in "EXP". It's doesn't have the usual bad mastering distortion and "Up From The Skies" comes in cleaner than I've heard before. George Marino is definitely one of those magic names that I always looked for on records when I was a kid.

  13. Another addition to my collection of Prof's Hendrix rips; as soon as I see your name it's an instant download for me - cheers Prof.

  14. Hey Prof., Speaking about Bernie Grundman mastering, his mastering has the bass intro to EXP panned to the right and not down the center. Did you ever hear his reasoning for this ?

  15. I seem to remember reading they remixed that one track?

  28. There's always something to be said about an original vintage pressing transfered flat to high resolution digital audio, BUT if you're looking for the best-sounding version of a particular record, you've got to listen with your ears. This is a treat. Many thanks for your work, professor (and thanks for keeping it alive and fast and free to anyone who might be interested).

  29. This sounds so amazing, Prof! Thank you a lot! I could never really enjoy Hendrix on headphones before I found your versions, so I've got you to thank for making him one of my favorite artists.

    I've got one little question though: You've got everything Hendrix ever released and then some on your site except for... mono Axis? I understand that requests aren't really allowed here, but do you ever plan on doing one?

    Once again though, thanks so very much for all this hard work!

  30. There is a good official version of the Axis mono straight from mastertape out there.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Looking forward to hearing the mono on this Cheers again Prof.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Also, do you ever think you'll do Band Of Gypsys or Loose Ends, or are there digital versions that are as good as can be done of those albums?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Axis, at long last, thanks professor...
