Australian Group "Mara!", album "Images"
This amazing album has at last come to light after years of only having a poor tape copy, the LP has been
ripped, it is in rather poor condition, very noisy and will take considerable work to get it to a reasonable
Like most copies I have heard, the poignant "Past Carin'" track on this LP is also very poorly recorded, very quiet and suseptible to every smallest click & scratch, with some strange panning on the voice which makes conventional noise reduction very difficult. I will have to resort to largely manual methods to remove the noises, this means that there will be some time before any of it is available.
