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?

Hopefully I will complete the rear scan this coming weekend, then its back to more mundane MOR stuff.

Hi, Gonzo!
I found this just now! As always, you did a wounderful scan to present this LP. Irresistible.
Congratulations and thanks for your taste.

This is an excellent Bud Freeman recording & I thank you for it. I love Roy Williams but he is under-represented on blogs. Do you have any more of his output ?

Gonzo said...

Glad you liked the album, re Roy Williams, there are some recordings but not really of blog quality, mostly old MP3 files, but I am always on the look out for RW material so watch this space...

Gonzo said...

Roy Williams albums, or featuring Roy Williams: In collection here.

Bill Allred "Absolutely" with RW
Danny Moss / Roy Williams Quintet

Both MP3 and no covers, so not suitable blog material.
