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!

Thanks so much! :)

Wow, thank you very much. I just compared this to the Third Eye, and yours sounds much better and more natural. I have known for a while that the Third Eye was bass boosted but I didn't have a better one to replace it, until now. THANK YOU!!!

warpig said...

Thank you for doing this terrific record.

Thank you... THANK YOU Prof! Nice to see you. This sounds absolutely phenomenal. But may I ask why you decided the 1 channel over the L+R sum? I'm not an expert ripper so just curious.

ranx xerox said...

thank you!!

This is the by far the best mono i've heard of it, Thank you so so much Prof. Stoned!!! if anyones interested, here's a high resolution cover scan https://ptpimg.me/ko05bx.jpg

Prof. Stoned said...

Folding channels is mainly recommended for masking surface noise and distortion. It lessens high-end snap because you are changing the transcients of the waveform. A single channel will give better fidelity.

This has always been a favorite of mine and of course, mono is the only format to listen to it. Thank you!!!!

Toxxy said...

Awesome! Huge thanks Prof ;)

tylerw said...

Thank you! I literally came here a week or two ago looking to see if you'd done any elevators stuff ...

Captain Acid said...

Thank you

Thank you so much for sharing your love of a great one from one of the greatest years in music. This interrupts my acute obsession with Francoise Hardy, who also released a remarkable album that year, which of course is much better in mono. But this does indeed give comfort, and I hope you feel good to share it as well.

bventure said...

Well, today I thought "It's ages since I had a look at profstoned's site, wonder if there's anything new?" - that was good timing! Huge thanks are due for all the outstanding work you have done (and continue to do), and for the generosity of sharing the fruits of your passion & expertise.

Oh, this Rip is sooo gorgeous! Love your work, Prof!

Prof. Stoned said...

I went and re-did it from scratch. There was too much distortion on v1.0. This new version is much cleaner with the same sound quality as v1.0.

Thank You Sir!

I really enjoy your work, Prof.! Thanks a lot for this labour of love.

Captain Acid said...

Thank you for the rework

ranx xerox said...

thanx for the upgrade.
is there any problem with the 24/96 file or it is my fault?
16/44 seems to work fine.

Prof. Stoned said...

I just downloaded 24/96 and tested. It's you.

Perseus said...

thanks for the new rip

shadow blaster said...

Thanks, excellent stuff!

marmalade said...

You sir are a champ - thank you for taking on board the comments re. distortion (many wouldn't have the humility...) and then going to the trouble of making a new rip for us

Arne67 said...

Thanks! Best version I've ever heard of this album! Much appreciated!

Jon H. said...

Prof -
A very, very belated thanks to you. Your generosity in sharing your hard work is much appreciated. Your skills in transfers, mastering and collecting information have greatly enriched my audio collection. I've been a fan of yours for years, via your remaster of the Who LP "Who Is This?" (live in Germany 1972). Though I actually own the LP, I'd rather listen to your remaster! I also follow you on SHF. Again, sorry I haven't thanked you sooner. Your most recent batch of titles has brought much joy in trying times. Please consider continuing your work, if possible...many of us eagerly await any new posts from you. Take care, and THANKS, my friend...
Jon H.

I bow in your general direction for your dedication and taste. Many thanks, friend.

JazC said...

Another thank you from Scotland. I'm pleased you decided to make a few more posts after the 'final one'! Best wishes.

Vincent said...

Amazing audio again for this absolute must have...sounds as good as my original VG copy of this mono mix, minus the annoying ticks and clicks of course! THANK YOU!!!

SlipperyBob said...

Many thanks professor!

Thank you Professor

Hi, I am able to download the RAR files to my Mac but the password does not help with opening them. It just says "Downloads/13_PS_LR.rar is not RAR archive
No files to extract"
Any advice on what I am doing wrong? Thanks very much for doing all this work.

fondofellipses said...

I should add that after I type in the password and press enter, nothing happens, and nothing happens after I click on "extract" as well.

kkchome said...

Great record!, Thanks very much.

anchovyarchives said...

Very nice indeed Prof
Many thanks

Re:fondofellipses
You need to use an up to date rar extractor.

Michael solof said...
