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?

Alternate ways to display Google blog pages

I have presented in the side bar the alternate display options for this blog, they have all been working until just recently when they now seem to generate an Error 500 report.

I have no idea if this is Google problem, or is down to the forever updated Firefox messing things, perhaps someone out there has the answer, does it work with I.E? or any other browsers?  Safari, Chrome, etc.

Seems to be OK NOW
I guess it was a Google Problem

Very nice and effective in 'Chrome' but whilst 'snapshot' loads quite well the other two are very slow at least for me.

Firstly, yes, on Safari the Error 500 comes up. I have no idea why.

Secondly, any chance of a scan of a Topic blue label..... a must have for my Folk Songs of Britain collection.

Cheers, fantastic site... looking forward to a bit of jazz

I'll have to look through my scans etc for some, I don't usually bother on the more run-of-the-mill records, there is far more useful information on the rear of most LP's, except strangely some of the early jazz ones where really useful info appears only on the side labels.

It seems to have failed again, this time no error 500, just nothing?

I must try "Chrome" sometime...

Many thanks for all your hard work on this series. It must have seemed a huge chore at times, but hopefully satisfying as well.

I'm sure I speak for thousands who will enjoy having this archive available.

Cheers, Paul
