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?

TOPIC Folk Albums Yet to be RESTORED (Songs Of Series)

I have these in my collection, most un-restored as yet some will never be released as many of the tracks are either re-issued, or subject to future re-issues.

Most of these albums will need quite a bit of work to get to a reasonable listening standard, this is the task for the next few months, I am not promising them as Christmas Presents.

Courtship = Completed
Seduction = Completed
Jack of all trades = Completed 
Child's Ballads V4 = Completed
Sailor Men = Completed
Soldiers Life = Completed
Fair Game = Completed
Ceremony = Completed
Animals = Completed

I hope to be able to re-rip the remaining volume 5
the Child's Ballads at some time soon.
Meanwhile a good source of reference to these LP's and their content can be found HERE

What great album art! Would love to hear the Songs of Animals and Other Marvels record.

thanks in advance for these! i've got 6 or so of them, but would love to hear the others in the set.

@ The Irate Pirate
Roger, well things are progressing slowly, I suspect that releasing the re-issued tracks openly will cause problems, however for a fellow blog owner I'm sure something can be arranged :-)

Any ideas yet on when you'll know which can be upped? I've been looking for the second Child Ballads album all over, and I'd like to stop looking now :-)

For some reason your comment got lost to appear just today. There is a problem getting the content from Tasmania, the first try resulted in a memory card getting destroyed, probably by some scanner,so we are going to resort to the original method CD/RW hopefully these will not get ruined.
