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!

  2. 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!!!

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

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

  11. 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.

  29. 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.

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

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

  35. 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

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

  37. 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.

  46. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  47. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Great record!, Thanks very much.
