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. Prof.,
    I'm still going to keep your 2010 version regardless. So are you finally coming clean that your source is a reissue LK 4786 from Spain circa 1976 ...hahaha ! Is it an orange label or blue label Decca ?
    Thanks for the bonus compilation of Bob Lugwig remasters and extra bonus proper version of "Got Live If You Want It !"
    Your 2010 version was amazing to begin with, which is why I'll keep in my collection, but I can't wait to hear your upgrade.
    Thanks for dazzling and surprising me once again ... make me wonder what you have up your sleeve ? ...Cheers !!!

  7. I keep listening to "Stupid Girl" because from the organ intro and on you have gotten more natural life out of the grooves over your 2010 version ..Sweeeet!

  8. The stereo version of Got Live If You Want It absolutely sucks. Thanks for this special mono presentation.

  11. Thank you for restoring the original first 2 songs. These were later replaced for no good reason from another show with a Long John Baldry intro.

  21. @unknown: I tested by downloading and unpacking both rars, no problems I found. You should download again, make sure it's complete.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm getting an error that says the download has been disabled because of excessive attention.

  23. Install Hoxx VPN (it's free), select a country, try again.

  27. The Ass Blasters "Could You Walk On The Water" release has a far better attempt at fixing the intro on "19th Nervous Breakdown". Maybe you should try to pinch theirs? I also think that your old rips of the "Flowers" tracks sound a lot better than these new official downloads, despite being off-speed. Not trying to be a dick - just pointing it out in case it helps.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Have not heard the ass blaster. Kindly send me link thru pm? As for the Flowers tracks, i dont agree. The export lp has tape dragging not heard on the remaster and lesser fidelity in general, imo. I suspect its 2 or 3 generations down.

  33. I've just downloaded the Rolling Stones "Aftermath" release after being denied by Google for several days. For this, I've used freeware named "JDownloader". It is very good also for downloading from Mega.

    Professor - many thanks for this and other releases!

  49. Hey Prof!!! Greetings from the left coast USA. I am listening to the 2020 Aftermath remaster for the first time this Sunday morning and my music room is filled with the crystal clear sounds of one of my favorite Stones albums. Yet another brilliant effort in your quest to provide music lovers with premium versions of classic recordings. Thank you once again!!!
    If I may with the expanded bonus cuts from the Aftermath + four from 2010 why My Girl from Flowers is not included this time. Its the only selection from your previous effort not included on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  50. thank you! when I'm getting into 60s music it bothers me if i cant easily hear the original mono mixes so this is a big help

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ah, you kept that source under your hat for a long time but I was 90% sure it was the Spanish LP. Glad I was able to find a copy about 10 years ago. Thanks for the great work.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Thanks for the Aftermath, Prof. Outstanding!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thank you very much for this great post.

  54. Thanks a lot, Prof! I have your 2010 version which was great, but the new one is like listening to the record for the first time!

    ReplyDelete
  55. How to improve a version that was already perfect? Incredible, thank you very much.
