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!

Wows, completely passed under the radar for me once again. Thanks for the offering, prof. This should be a very interesting listen, indeed. I'm curious, is there any difference in the B-side Wicked World between the mono and stereo versions?


Anonymous said...

Just checked Wicked World. Seems like there isn't a difference besides the mono being punchier (like always). I wouldn't go as far as to say that it's the better version, however. pb's stereo version (Wicked World) is just as enjoyable a listen as this one, if not more.

And, wow, are those horns pretty subtle yet "always right there" once you notice them.

I heard PB's recent rip of the Vertigo 45 but it sounded completely worn. Still, that single would be probably the best place to hear the stereo mix of WW.

Yeah, when he said that single wasn't in the best shape, he wasn't joking around, as far as my observations went for his rip of Evil Woman. I didn't really notice any problems with Wicked World, however. (Any I might have noticed prior was probably my ears deceiving me.)

It may be worn, but I guess we gotta take what we can get sometimes...


Prof. Stoned said...

I threw it off the HD after hearing a bit of EW, never got to WW.

Sounds great to me! Punchy and clear. Nice one.

Yay and huzzah! Always great to hear from Prof. Stoned and his digitized recordings of note.

Thank you, sir!

Wow! Great stuff, Prof! :)

Very, VERY cool

FYI, it looks like somebody reported the LR download as "unsafe"...I clicked it twice just to be sure, and got the warning both times. I downloaded anyway, but thought you should know what happened. Anyone else run into this?

ps: I reported it as 'safe', hope that helps.



Fantastic find! This is good stuff and so rare from original '45. Evil Woman is less heavy and more "pop" than on LP, but still a beauty.

Well, I just had another listening comparison between the two, and from what I can tell, pbthal's sounds a bit... "thicker," to put it into words. Whether or not it was from his Su-Su-Sussurro cartridge/rig/set-up/etc. at the time, I'm not sure. IMO it's not really in that bad of a condition, however.

(BTW sorry to keep you hangin', prof.)
