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?

A Collection of humour and music exploring the "Derbyshire Wit"
You'll need to listen VERY carefully to understand some of this.
Reynardine should note the link to Muckram in the Winster Gallop

Although I mastered the MP3's at 320k from a 24 bit LP rip, the
content does not really need this archival quality, so the music
presented here is VBR encoded 160/320 to achieve optimum
quality at minimum size. I have recently become aware of the
rapid filling of hard drives with all the nice content blogs offer.

Dear Gonzo, Thanks for the rip. I'm looking forward to hearing it. Meanwhile I hope you've had a good trip to Australia and that it's helped you on your way. Sorry to hear of your sad times recently. Cheers, John G
