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?

"Tommy Armstrong of Tyneside" (see comments)

There is a CD issued for this album, I'm looking for more details for
interest, of course the music from this album will NOT now be
available on here.
However there is a download available  HERE  (Page 12)

Um.. this link doesn't work, Gonzo, and there are no results for searches on 'Tommy Armstrong'
Any ideas where I might find it?

Seems like that site was a fly by nighter, gone! Pity because it offered downloads of a lot of good rare folk music. Because there is a CD issued I will not post my LP copy
on here, though you might try installing Soulseek, I'm sure you could find someone sharing it there
