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!

  8. I was disappointed when this album was first released. It was so different from the first two. Eventually I came to appreciate this amazing album. Thank you for this masterful remix, it is deeply appreciated.

  10. This is outstanding. Great to have the drums in the middle of the stereo image. Prof, were you not tempted to tack on Wonder People at the end, just for completeness' sake?

    1. Remember to fill your equipment profile, kids. I wish we could just have an open discussion but the Gorts leave me no choice.

    2. Apologies, Prof, I went back and listened to the as-released version and it would appear that I'm remembering a part that doesn't actually exist. I could have sworn... Anyway, carry on, it's all good. ;-)

  21. Prof,
    You are full of miracles !! When I saw that to gave us a double post ... I flipped.
    Putting your hand to "Forever Changes" was totally unexpected. I know your a super fan of this album from your past work but you doing a remix / remaster is a downright "love letter" to the spirit of Arthur, the band and everyone in the control room who is responsible for this masterpiece.

    Blessings upon your soul, Prof.

    You gotta know that we're all sitting out here with wish lists now, right?!... hahaha.

  35. Thanks for your take (or mix) of this beautiful album, and in my opinion this is a top 10 album.

    When listening to this a believe your mix is the best out there, far better than the crappy 80's cd. The original mono mix I find very flat. I heard some original and clean US pressing of this album, and and have always like them very much.

    But I think, with your take, this is how the digital copy should sound like (not the one's that the majority of people listening to on Spotify these days). You did an incredible work (again). God bless you.

  36. I don't know how you do it - but keep doing it.

  37. The best ever mix of this album, may thanks Prof.

  38. Thank you Prof! I've been enjoying your work for a long long time. Please keep it up.

  39. Wow. I wonder if you have any interest in remastering the Syd Barrett solo albums. I would love to hear what could be achieved. Many thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Your Piper At The Gates was sublime. I always felt of the many classic albums Syd's solo work is an example dreadful audio. The Japanese re release series were a better balance for me but it's only when someone, like yourself, with real skill, talent passion and audio literacy remasters them, you hear the real magical journey within

  41. again one of my favorites from the day- & of course I have the vinyl & all the rest of them & all the solo stuff & many still sealed.......but a few issues. I read daily & talk to Johnny Echols a bit, & in his extreme detailed postings & in the the somewhat recent "Love Story" DVD release, they- Johnny, Arthur! & Stuart agree a version was recorded with "The Wrecking Crew" but it was NOT the album release. "They" state that the band was so moved by that recording, they swore they could do it better!, went back to the studio & rerecorded what was actually the released version. So as the album has been remastered again recently & I have never had issues with the digital recordings as my sound system is easily enhanced if need be, I look forward to your version. Something better would be amazing.

    1. I've heard this same story, but in the version I heard, the band were so upset by the session men being used on those first two recorded songs, that they asked Arthur if they could do the rest of the album as a band. However, those two tracks recorded with the Wrecking Crew were not, to my knowledge, done over, although group overdubs were used.

    Prof, You've spoiled me !

    Please go into the rest of the Love (Elektra releases) catalogue and work your magic. I keep listening to your remix on "Forever Changes" and want to listen to the first 2 albums as well as "Four Sails" but the inferior stereo mixes that were done are painful to listen to since you've opened the door to possibilities with your remix.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Marvellous job, prof! A whole new listening experience with an album I've heard hundreds of times. And all the lyrics chrystal clear too, after fourty years at last I know what the old man gave him: a tiny ivory BALL. Thanks for making my day once again!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Now I only wish you will grant the same treatment to Da Capo, which now sounds a bit dull compared to your delightful doing :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'd be more than happy if you only remastered Side One of "Da Capo." Side Two can be left in the dustbin.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Outstanding PS!! ONe of my alltime favorite albums and you took such care to shine this one up. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  47. These songs just take off. Fabulous job.

  48. As a long time collector of the best sounding vinyl and CD copies of famous and not-so-famous rock classics, I feel truly blessed that Prog Stoned has given us so much wonderful music to listen to. And as someone who has alos dabbled in transferring rare vinyl to the digital domain, I have to say that you set a new standard to aspire to. Your dedication, patience and diligence means we are sure we get the very best of everything. I cannot thank you enough.
