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?

The same rip from 2010, but with a minor mastering correction.

I've been listening to the V1.0 for ten years now, how time flies! What were the eq applied for? I think the v1.0 was damn good. Thank you dear Prof.

Prof. Stoned said...

It was a little bit brighter than it should have been.

... is it Christmas already ? I can't thank you enough, Prof. Quick question, how does the 2018 Analogue Production (Bernie Grundman remaster) stand up to this 2010 Legacy vinyl ?

Prof. Stoned said...

I find Bernie's approach too hands off. George Marino nailed these 2010 Legacy editions. Truth is, the tapes need some work and Marino did it just right.

Noises From Apt 2A said...

You can hear the difference immediately in the guitar distortion in "EXP". It's doesn't have the usual bad mastering distortion and "Up From The Skies" comes in cleaner than I've heard before. George Marino is definitely one of those magic names that I always looked for on records when I was a kid.

Another addition to my collection of Prof's Hendrix rips; as soon as I see your name it's an instant download for me - cheers Prof.

Noises From Apt 2A said...

Hey Prof., Speaking about Bernie Grundman mastering, his mastering has the bass intro to EXP panned to the right and not down the center. Did you ever hear his reasoning for this ?

Prof. Stoned said...

I seem to remember reading they remixed that one track?
