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?

Music HERE

Password for RAR is gonzoTVLR

The RAR contains all the music & spoken tracks encoded with LAME 3.90.3 at 192k stereo, plus
a slightly better front cover photograph than the blog picture, as with the previous post, no rear cover scans are available. These albums all belong to a collector friend in Tasmania, who has no scanner, the text is not good enough to produce a worthwhile and readable picture.

Hi Gonzo,

Thank you for all the work you do. this is valuable musc which would be lost withoutout your work.

On a non-music issue and purely to satisfy my cutiosity could you tell me the difference between a follower (10) and a subscriber (19). I'm one of the 19!


Gonzo said...

I have no idea? One possible guess is the subscribers have left comments, whereas the followers are fellow bloggers and have notified me that they, as it says "Follow" my blog. I must see what number I get next time I post a comment..

Many thanks for this post! Good to have a replacement for my old and very scratchy vinyl. Cheers!
