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

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

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.

Get outta here!

This is quite the surprise, indeed. I didn't expect for you to re-rip this. I understand Cohen's dislike for the Simon's arrangements on this album (artist control is something to respect, not to mock), but I don't agree with him; rather, I think they complete his efforts, rather than detract from his work (here's looking at you, Spector!).

aboaboabo's efforts are much appreciated, and I used his improvements of the front cover as a ratio guide. I made a quick 650x650 adaption of a cover from AlbumArtExchange, useful for anyone that wants to have something to use as iTunes or Foobar artwork: http://cl.ly/FUql

Thank you very much for all Simon and Garfunkel posts and this Leonard Cohen post as well. Brings me all back to the "mono-time": I am 61 years old now but still listening to Simon and Garfunkel. The songs written by Paul Simon would not have drawn so much attention to the entire world without the angelic voice of Art Garfunkel. His voice is the best to be heard on mono by listening thourgh earspeakers! On the left speaker you can hear Art singing; on the right you hear Paul Simon`s voice! GREAT!

Thanks for this. I have the stereo version on vinyl but it is badly scratched.
