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?

  3. I've enjoyed the stereo version of this for some time but I just checked out your mono rip and thought it sounded great! Nice to be able to finally hear this rare version. Thanks for posting.

  4. I've never heard this album in any form before, so hearing it in mono first will be a nice treat. Thank you much!

  6. I just heard the stereo version, and highly appreciate that the recent 2016 remaster, with 19 tracks, is not squashed. DR is 12, for those who pay attention, while the earlier, 12 track release, has a DR of 8. The Prof is right, "She's Ready To Be Free" sounds horrible on the 12 track. The 2016 remaster fixes that one, and gives us that track in mono and stereo. I like that the 2016 has all 11 tracks of the original record together, and not split by the b side. Now we have both the stereo and mono versions of this album sounding very nice. Thank you Prof for helping me discover an album I'd completely missed before. What a find!

  8. Your welcome. I'm just so pleased that we now have a remaster of something that sounds loads better than previous remasters. Not only is the brickwalling removed, but so are the artificial smilies that tried to make it sound too much like a modern release. My only regret is that the original album is only officially released in stereo, which makes your rip of the mono still very essential. Those bonus also make it worth the price. Definitely support this one people when you can. We need to show our appreciation for remasters done right.
    The same can be said also for the recently released Them set, which Prof. Stoned's two wonderful releases compliment, but absolutely do not replace, and I know they are not ment to, which is good.

  9. Agreed. I'd urge everyone to steal the latest Beyonce if you have to, but carefully-put-together reissues like the new CL deserve an audience.

  13. Really enjoying your work, professor. Like you, I pride myself on taste and there's only a few of yours I hadn't heard, including this one...brings to mind the Serpent Power and (LA) Kaleidoscope a little. Good job.

  18. Thanks - I have always thought 60s rock in mono sounds the best for that era.

  19. Thanks for all your hard work!!! Alec Palao who put together the CLEAR LIGHT CD for Big Beat / Ace in 2016 just told me that the mono and stereo versions of SHE'S READY TO BE FREE on the Ace CD were both from the masters. So you must have done yours just prior to the CD release in 2016.
