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?

O.M.G. This one of my favorites from the era when i got back into listening to Britfolk. I haven't heard it since my turntable went into the rest home.

I have the second album on CD somewhere. Did the nearly-all-instrumental album, 7 TO MIDNIGHT, ever make it to CD?

Many thanks!

Do you know, I have no idea if 7 to midnight ever got to CD, however I do have a restored copy of the vinyl, if I dont find any reference to a CD I may consider posting this album too... Watch this space as they say!

Incredible coincidence, as part of the search for a CD copy of 7 to Midnight, I came across the Squidoo site which also had more details on the eponymous (1981) album, I posted the link to this site on the listing, then checking the un-moderated comments, I find this suggestion from anonymous.

Thanks, pity I didn't check first.

@ RTJ You can find an early rip of the 7 to Midnight album which so far has NOT made it to CD, on Time Has Told Me Blog (THTM) I had forgotten that I had posted the link to my copy of the LP in a comment on that blog. After discovering the original posting was corrupted, the link is still valid though it does not contain any artwork, but the original blog posting has some at a reasonable size by clicking on the pictures and saving, you can download copies.

Thanks for the "7 to Midnight" link. I love the concept of that album, opening with "Ten Cents A Dance" and then moving on to an all-instrumental programme. It was great to hear it again after so long.

Sounds like some odd artifacts in track #5 (I think it was) -- some popping which might be digital clipping? And that sound is on another track, I think.

Thanks for all the effort you put into this. I have some miscellaneous tapes taken from radio 30 years ago but sometimes I never know who is playing until I discover them here.
