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?

Bucca... (The Goblin of the wind in Celtic mythology) Cornwall Music

Here is a most interesting album from a little known group
from Cornwall in the deep south west of the UK.

The album comes from 1982, as far as I know it has never been seen on CD, which is probably because in 1982 CD's were only just becoming available, most of the output was of a classical nature, the lighter music and jazz came later.
I said little known for that is what the group was but the  musicians forming Bucca were well known as part of 
"Anao Atao" another group keeping the Cornish 
tradition alive.

There are cover scans of both front and back plus copies of the inlay in the RAR archive. Recording quality is good to excellent, VBR  encoding to MP3 from a converted
24 bit master.
(LP is Plant Life PLR039)

Many thanks for this - Another great record which, if not for your tireless efforts, would have remained completely unknown to me. I am very pleased to have discovered it & thank you once again for your great blog.

Every time I follow your link to the RapidShare site, there's no download button on their page. Do you have any idea where I'm wrong or|and what should be done about it? The music you post in your blog is absolutely great, I would hate to fall short of having it!

Thank you for what you're doing!!!

How very odd? mind you I am not surprised, rapid share seems to keep changing things around. I checked here and was presented with a download panel straight away, but this is because I am a registered RS user and am logged in most of the time, however let me try as an outsider on another connection, see what happens. I assume you tried BOTH options, open and secure download links?

Worked perfectly using my neighbours connection, selected the centre option with the green DOWNLOAD panel
titled "Save File To... your computer"

This brought up the normal explorer download panel with option to save file to PATH...

File arrived, if a little slow on the rather poor ADSL connection, and shakey wireless.
