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!

Prof,

You & JWB make a "killer" team when it comes to creating compilations. As always, I can't begin to express how grateful I am to be able to experience the BBC tracks in top notice fidelity.

Thanks again to you & JWB !!!

Wow! I didn't know that 2nd gen tapes were used. I love Jimi's BBC sessions and this will be a treat. Many thanks Prof.!

>More likely to be John Peel rather than Brian Matthew (not Matthews).

Nope, it's Brian Matthew talking.

>I didn't know that 2nd gen tapes were used.

Worse though, nearly everything on the EH is in fake stereo with added reverb.

First time to hear this material where it doesn't sound cold and brittle and just plain nasty. Really enjoying this.

I've found this makes a dandy companion to JWB's "Cream On The Radio" (2018 Version), in part because both are such a sonic upgrade from their official counterparts

Prof. Stoned said...

Yep, he did a swell job on that one.

iggyd said...

Wonderful sounding collection of Jimi's BBC recordings. I have a very large collection of Hendrix vinyl boots, including some, but not all of these tracks. For my money this is the definitive and best sounding collection of The Experience at The BBC. Thank you so much for putting this together for us die hard collectors!

Seamus said...

It's amazing how much effort goes into these releases, thanks so much.

Old_fat_bloke said...

Wonderful, thank you

peacenik said...

Just compared this to the BBC Sessions release, and your totally blows it away, thanks!

Anonymous said...

This sounds terrific! Well done - we appreciate you and all of the work put into these projects. These are not only 50+ year old BBC recordings plus direct-to-mono, and your hard work shows through. Another reason why hard-core music fans get so upset when the powers-that-be won't put any effort into locating proper tapes and/or "polishing" them.

The above post applies to JWB as well.

Arne W. said...

Thanks! Great sounding collection, but the outro to Fire (which seems to be an edit of two sources) is missing about a second of music.

bandache said...

Well done Prof. Thanks so much.

Prof. Stoned said...

RE: the last seconds of "Fire": my version is actually authentic and complete. The EH version was doctored; they have used the final notes from Purple Haze to mask the incomplete source they used.

Anonymous said...

Caused me to pull out and starting playing the 2CD set I compiled a few years ago, using a number of best sources, including several Westwood One CDs. Had a lot of fun de-clapping the now clap/don't clap song! Thank you again for all that you do!

antony harrington said...
