Congrats Prof Stoned! It's about time to see some group to use your expertise on remastering. The Led Zep camp (or any other group releasing their radio performances/lost masters) should use your skills.ReplyDelete
Congratulations, Prof, and very well deserved.ReplyDelete
Congratulations!! Hope its one of many more. You deserve it with your terrific expertise in remastering.ReplyDelete
Well done sir, well deserved!ReplyDelete
As soon as I read this I wanted to thank you for your work and used the link to register and order a copy - but alas, I tried at least three times to register an account on their site without success.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your interest - perhaps you can try a different browser? Or if the problem keeps happening, please use the shops contact option.Delete
What's different about your mix?ReplyDelete
Different stereo image, improved balancing, tighter and thicker low-end, some reverb and echo added here and there. It's comparable to the Beatles remixes. Sound samples can be heard on the linked page.Delete
You should advertise your remastered work on the Flash in the USA LP.ReplyDelete
I don't really consider that a "Prof Stoned Production" like this one. It was a job I did for TLAK.Delete
The other outtake "Love Me" would have made a great addition to this album.ReplyDelete
That's from the BBC. We couldn't have it.Delete
Could you have remixed it rather than remastered it?ReplyDelete
I would say it is, but we couldn't call it that since it was not actually done from the multi tracks.Delete
Thanks for drawing attention to this band especially guitarist/vibraphone Ollie Halsall who Andy Summers and others say his skills where in a class of his own.ReplyDelete
Fun fact: Halsall first started playing guitar earnestly in 1967, aged 18. Then 3 years later, he plays like this... 0_oDelete
That wasn't his peak yet: on 1971's Hold Your Fire he had improved yet again to a higher level. Check it out. This first one album, however, has the better songs and stands as their finest effort (IMO).
Just had a listen to the samples. Nice and fat and clean sounding. So why the need for your demix remastering skills? Are the master tapes lost?ReplyDelete
Which samples? The ones on the TLAK site are mine. The original master is just poorly mixed.Delete
Yes, the ones on the TLAK site.Delete
Congrats Prof. Stoned. I hope this one is the first of many more, because your work is so beautiful!ReplyDelete
Hi Prof. Did you remix the entire LP? I A/B'd a few songs from the original LP to your "mix" and there's no difference.ReplyDelete
All tracks. I can't vouch for your A/B testing abilities but the difference is really not subtle.Delete
Best example: the moment the vocals kick in on Red Glow. Also, the vocals on The Man are much lower in the mix on original.
Ordered. Congrats. As I mentioned before, I always wondered why this didn't happen long ago.Keep on!ReplyDelete
Again, thanks for the support guys!ReplyDelete
Sounds great Prof !ReplyDelete
Can't agree about better songs on the first LP - I think Hold Your Fire is a definite step towards more adventurous writing and playing. Third LP is also great, but Ollie plays a lot of piano instead of guitar.ReplyDelete
