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!

Professor I've never heard this record with such clarity before. I love the sound of this rip & pressing. This is the only way to listen to this recording. Thank you.

Thank you very much, the sound beats the other rip that had been making the rounds. You're number 1!

aaronrumpza said...

Oh and by the way, what Sundazed did really put a halt on my purchases from that company until I have verification of the source material.

I have been looking for this for a very long time. Thank you so much, Prof.

Fantastic work on this album! Thanks!

BTW, thanks also to JWB for pointing out this great Blog to me!

Pittylabelle said...

Just one general question:

Do you keep the space between the tacks of an album, or do you cut/remaster each tack separate?

Thanks Prof!!!

This version blows away the Sundazed reissue. It kinda makes me sad for everyone, including myself, that paid good money for that Sundazed patchjob. Thank you for this great release.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for another wonderful drop, Prof! You may be hungry, but you sure ain't weird!!!

Anonymous said...

Yeah ! Great to finally get the true mono mix !
Plus the filecloud download link was FAST!!, a minute only :-)

Thank you Prof !!!

m p friedman said...

Call me a Neanderthal, but this was always my fav from the Captain. I saw him in a tiny auditorium around the time of this release - didn't undertand it at all at the time. Live and learn. Thanks, Prof!

Thank you so much for all the time, money, hard work & most of all, for sharing the fruits of your labours with us.
I particularly appreciate the 24/96 lossless files - squeezing this stuff down to anything less would be a waste IMO.

Thank you so much for this gem! It's people like you that make the world such a better place! Regards, with Beefhartian love.

Dale said...

I adore what you do but can't figure out how to download your links on a Mac. Any advice from out there would be appreciated!

Amazing, thank you very much for this. Good to know about the issues with the Sundazed as well.

Sounds fine, and it's nice to have the actual mono mix available. Thanks Prof!

Andrew said...

Thank you for this - it was a wonderful way to revisit (and in a way understand for the first time) this psych classic. Listening also to Unconditionally Guaranteed and I can see that the Cap also wrote sweet love songs early in his career. Thank you!

O.D. Jones said...

have a stereo copy since i was teen, never came across a mono copy...til NOW...many sincere thanks for your efforts here. MONO "Something Else" by the Kinks next ??? one of my holiest relics is a MONO copy of "kinks greatest hits" that I unsealed myself a few years ago....did I say thanks already?

Dale said...

I find I'm unable to download your material on a Mac. Regrettable,as your site is fantastic. Anyone with advice for using a Mac here would be most welcome. long may you run!

¡Muchas gracias, profe!

Buzzcut9 said...

I have this in stereo but, I decided to hear what the Captain sounded like in mono. Thank you for your hard work. I used to have an Acoustic Research turntable. It needed some work and I was encouraged to just get rid of it. Later, I regretted it. Nothing like a good turntable. Thanks again.

Sounds great as always

Vincent said...

I have original copies of the US stereo and UK mono and I must say this one is a real blast! Thanks for the HQ rip from a pristine source and for your dedication in sharing!!!

For some reason,I can't download anything from this site with a Mac. Unfortunate,since I love your work.
Keep on with the fantastic work!

Prof. Stoned said...

You are gonna have to be more specific than that about what the problem is, Dale.

Thanks! Free indeed

Amazing site! Unless you're using a Mac.

Thank you for this! I am so excited to hear the original version at last. Own the 1999 Buddha CD and a 1980´s UK fold down vinyl.
