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?

I'm afraid that many of the resource links to music and scans on this blog are now D E A D due it seems to changes at the file hoster.

When time permits I will be either re-freshing them or providing links to a new resource in response to POLITE requests, I do NOT intend to refresh them ALL, I do not now have the time to go back over the entire 4 years of postings.


I've just returned from a holiday in Australia to find 14
file requests outstanding, please bear with me until I get
round to re-upping or password sending as needed.

Thanks for your comments, your interest, it is nice to know
someone still collects this music :-))
previously presented on here, new links added.
new links coming eventually

I for one would very much appreciate a refreshed link to Jumbo Brightwell "Songs from the Eel's Foot" 1975 if possible. I am very keen to hear more from the late Mr Brightwell after I recently obtained the "Kind Hearted Fellows" disc, to which he contributed 2 tracks.

Keep up the good work here!

I was trying to download the Topic release...Folksongs of Britain 7: Fair Game and Foul...but the link is dead.
I'm especially interested in this one as it contains a recording a woman from my area.
Any chance you might be able to refresh the like for it please.
Thank You

Thank you for all your hard work Your blog is a great resource and what a shame it is under threat of being obliterated by folks that just don't have a clue whose raison d'ĂȘtre is just greed and 'the bottom line'.
