  31. Prof. - STELLAR work here, as always! Best I've ever heard this material, and yet there is some material I've never heard as well!
    Your remastering is a wonderful alternative to the overly-noise reduction travesty that could have been/should have been mastered with more care.
    Thank you so very much, sir!

  32. Hi Prof. It took some time to extract all the folders and convert to mp3 but worth it. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thank you mate! Great to see you back. I will challenge you to do a comprehensive Pink Floyd BBC sessions, That would be a huge task.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks so much. Big improvement over the version I had. Great work.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Once again, great work!
    Thank you VERY much.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Pink Floyd wouldn't be worth doing (yet) because there are perfect pre-fm's of the Syd sessions in private hands that haven't yet surfaced. So it would just be more of the same.

  37. Late to the party but many thanks.

  38. Thanks for another great collection - this one desperately needed doing.

  40. Listening now. Another A+++ effort, Prof Stoned. Thank you very much for this great sounding collection, as well as an important historical document of the band, the Cream. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thank you very much. Sound is great, really natural.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Tack så mycket! This one is so much easier on the ears compared to the offical brickwalled 2003 CD.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Brilliant! Thank you.

  44. v1.2: 27-12-2022 (session #12, Tr 3 replaced with a better source that has no voiceover on intro and outro; 'Completist Stuff' folder added)

    1. Thanks for that, Proffo.
      Seems the Beeb really issued this number and same version *twice* on two different Transcription Discs, #170 and #213. (both in 1968) - once with and once without the voiceover. Hence the stunning audio quality. GOOD! :-)

  54. Wow, Prof. thanks for the upgrade. SWABLR without DJ voiceover is a highlight now! That and, of course, the "I'm so Glad" with the 1812 overture in the guitar solo. Great work, thanks again for the share.
