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., The only way you can top this is if your next posting is a Zappa / Mothers project.
Thanks so much doing this Syd Floyd posting and your attention to details.

Very nice!! Thank you.

Thanks Prof! The Early Years tracks finally sound good!

sydfloyd said...

Thanks for this. As far as I know, the 'aircheck' recording of the first Top Gear broadcast only captured the first 90 minutes of the show and the rest wasn't recorded, except 'off air', which is why those two 'missing' tracks don't circulate in top quality.

jimmie d said...

Excellent sound! Thanks a lot Professor, and I agree with Noises From Apt 2A regarding Zappa/Mothers.

Prof. Stoned said...

@sydfloyd: the rest definitely exists. At least one track not on the 90m tape from this airing i'm aware of circulates in great quality.

And also, the 90 minutes are actually not the first half but rather two parts of 47 uninterupted minutes from the show. Details here: https://peel.fandom.com/wiki/01_October_1967

All I can say is thank you for another wonderful project. Actually, there are a few other things I would like to say.

During your "time off" I had the fortune of going back and listening to some of your other projects. I listened to them and was impresse wit the quality, organization and presentation of the selections. It left me wanting more, but it seemed like you had vanished without a trace. I'm so glad that you're back.

Here's what I'm trying to say with all of this: you do this the right way. There are plenty of other projects out there, but no one (including bootleg labels) put the time, effort and care into the presentations that you do with so many artists that I like. I'm especially enjoying these compilations.

All this to say...please don't stop. They help me make it through my work day and they never disappoint. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Prof. Stoned said...

Cheers!

Thank you!

A Local Bloke said...

Hi Prof. If you don't mind me asking, how did you come to the final tracklist? It's very good.

Sorry that it's so open-ended, but I would be very interested in knowing. : )

Gummo said...

Hey, Prof! Looks great (as usual!) but the link says "can't download at this time"? Do I just need to wait or....?

In any case, thanks for your always stellar work!

Prof. Stoned said...

@A Local Bloke:
Oh, I dunno... Strong opening track; instrumental opener side 2; Jugband at the end because it works well on Saucerful. Just my idea of a good sequence, basically.

@Gummo
Please see top post front page.

A Local Bloke said...

Thank you very much, Prof. I'm very interested in the subject.

Ayler said...

Intriguing

Thank you Prof

This is wonderful! Thank you so much for this and all of your other music posts.

jimmie d said...

I shared this with a friend. His comment: Having listened to it all the way through, I'm surprised how well it hangs together as an album; the sequencing is excellent. Better than "A Saucerful of Secrets" which is really "bitty" imho.

Prof. Stoned said...

Cheers!

freddiehubbard said...

thank you Prof. I've tried something similar although i think yours hangs together better

Doc said...

Excellent, thanks so much! It's great to have those 1974 mixes in best ever quality too. Still not sure the live track is indeed Reaction In G (as the BBC version and the live Rotterdam one are made of the same cloth, and this one's completely different... What do you think? Bests
Doc

Prof. Stoned said...

The BBC fragment seems to have the same groove as this, although it is played in another key. This version came a little bit earlier, so they may have retooled it a bit?

DaveF said...

As a Floyd Fan this is a wonderful new take on an alternate reality. Great work!

Anonymous said...

There is also a studio version of "Reaction In G" that was completely ignored for the Early Years box and it also matches the BBC/Rotterdam song. The song played in Stockholm is something else entirely.

Richard Nixon said...

Sounds sweet! Much thanks.

JazC said...

Thank you. Many years ago, I recorded a Floyd BBC session on our family reel-to-reel deck by sticking a microphone in front of the radio and covering the whole affair with cushions to muffle the sounds of domestic life going on around. It was the best I could do with the equipment to hand and my knowledge of electronics at the time! I know how good your work is, and I look forward to a somewhat better sound experience with this...

Prof. Stoned said...

*LOL*
