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?

  4. I have to admit I was somewhat puzzled when the "deluxe edition" came out not too long ago and didn't include the mono mix. Makes coming across your excellent transfer a great remedy for their omission. Thanks for posting. Best, James

  5. While the concert on the deluxe edition was fine enough, passing over the opportunity to remaster the mono mix was a huge oversight in my book. That, and claiming the remix of Aoxomoxoa and Anthem of the Sun as the original mixes for the official download is unforgivable. I had always thought better of the Dead's mastering, and they had performed fabulously up to that point. Thank you Prof for getting this mono mix to us in such premium quality. Much appreciated.

  11. You've made my day with this one! My mono copy of this first GD album is pretty beat. I will be happy to replace it with your version. And I see Safe as Milk is up too. Great stuff! I'm still enjoying Q65 quite a bit too - new stuff for me. Thanks for all the great tunes lately! - Joaquin Antique

  34. Thank you. I had the debut as a child (9 years old in 1967) and have remained of fan of this album and the Grateful Dead throughout my life. But until today I have never heard the mono mix. It is superb, as is your transfer. It put a smile on my face. Much appreciated!
