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?

I have a rip of King Cotton at only 160kbps (not mine!) if you're interested. It isn't too bad imho....

Well yes thanks if it is the Horten one, but this will be only for personal use, as I would need a copy of the physical thing to make it postable on the blog.

My email for this medium is

Perhaps you could mail me there..

Hi. I've got a copy of Green Grow the Laurels that you are welcome to.
I've got this as a single wav file and also as separate MP3 files. I'm new to all this. How do I send this to you? Isn't this too big for e-mail?

Sorry I missed your comment, for some reason it was not obviously attached to any posting.

If you wish to donate the file in wave format, might I suggest you split it by using RAR and declare a maximum part size of say 50 megs each then upload these parts to rapidshare.
You can contact me at my gmail address (see posting above) and pass on the rapidshare link URL's. Please be sure to number them in order, and use a password for each part, using non specific names. If you checkout any of my link postings you will see the idea.
