About Me

My photo
Folk & Jazz fan, specialising in vinyl restoration. Although I would prefer to only post albums that I have paid for, or those of close friends, I am open to suggestions and offers of rare Folk items that need tender care and restoration, provided the supplier has the right of ownership of the physical item. NOT JUST an MP3 COPY of it. To give you an idea, I am prepared to restore vinyl belonging to another person, IF I receive a decent quality scan of the front, back and any relevant information that comes with the LP, preferably at least 2400 by 2400 quality, (600DPI scans for back) along with the sound files in FLAC format as waves are a bit too large to transfer. Then I will check their suitability for restoration. I try to maintain the requirement for a decent set of scans for each item, where possible, as I feel the music is incomplete without it. Sometimes this is just not possible as a lot of my stock came from broadcasting organisations that had their own heavy card sleeves, with information relevant to their prime function, that of providing the disc-jockies with basic details to pass on to listeners. I do wonder what happened to all the original artwork?

Here NOW in all it's GLORY (new rip side 2)

The second of the "Dr Bowser's Brown Bowel Oil Band" LP rips

This album finds the "Bowsers" much more polished than on the first, this is a must for all traditional (Playford) dance fanatics, it's also pretty good just to listen to. When you have stopped laughing at the ribald comments on the cover, there is the factual and functional booklet that contains the lyrics, the steps and the music in standard format.

One well known folk musician said about the band .....
" Their name is the best thing about them"
(He's anonymous to avoid having a warm lard enema forced on him)
and who wouldn't with a threat like that hanging over his head
(or rather his nether regions) ?

This album is not owned by me, it is being restored for a friend,
so cleaning of the second side will be at his convenience.
(Come to think of it, perhaps that would be a good place to clean it)

Well I hope it was worth waiting, I've now made an attempt at cleaning
the remaining side, the results are not as good as I had hoped but it is listenable.
(See what you think?)

Addendum: See later post for information regarding Side 2 re-rip

There are THREE files for this album
(Ok I admit it, I'm trying to up my Rapid Share ratings)
No seriously, the whole thing came to well over 100 megabytes,
so to give those with slow links the chance to "get in slowly"
I've put the booklet (14 pages), the scans (front and back)
and the music files (12 tracks) all in separate files.

(Links follow)

Music at 320k Stereo (old rip Side 1 is OK, see below for side 2) DL
Scans at 300DPI (2400 * 2400 pixels) DL
Booklet in A4 size pages in monochrome JPG format DL

Thanks for this one. Some great source material here. As a listenable album, acceptable imho....just a bit patchy. Should you find a better copy, I hope you will make it available.
Of similar ilk, age and instrumentation, I don't suppose you have the LP by the Electropathics???
