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?

       This is a SAD DAY for bloggers and for music:         
       A well respected Jazz blog has been closed due     
       to threats received from anonymous posters.           
       Someone with a personal AXE to grind, no doubt! 

Some better news: A new site has arisen from the ashes of the old, it looks good too, sorry access is by invitation only at the moment.

What the hell happened? I just heard about this.

Jazzman published the meat of a very abusive and offensive letter, before removing the blog, from what I read, strong language and all, someone, or probably a group of internet record dealers were getting pretty pissed off at the posting for FREE of interesting jazz albums. The threat included the notifying of record companies concerned, if this was just a personal threat or a windup I have no idea, he did not make it clear.
The result, you know.. No Jazzman blog now.

Thanks for that info, I won't post it on the main posting page, or make a link to it, as Jazzman would prefer it not to be Google discoverable.
