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?

Strange squeeking on recording could be a peddle or maybe a creaky piano stool, this feature can be heard on most tracks, its gets quite annoying in the end..

Generally this recording is unusual, in that there appears to be little or no limiting used, the LP has been mastered at lower level than normal to cope with the peaks, this gives the production a very explosive sound and shows up the surface noise and rumble on the disc.

However, all the faults aside, this is how a good piano recording SHOULD sound, not like some available, where the instrument sounds like someone draped a heavy carpet over the top, this a bright, forceful and incredibly alive recording.

Play it L O U D but watch the wine glasses.
