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?

What a pleasant surprise! It had been so long since I had seen anything from you that I kind of decided that you had thrown in the towel. Hopefully that is not the case and this is the start of renewed activity by you. I always enjoyed your folk postings though I'm sure I didn't let you know often enough and always politely ignored your jazz postings as that just isn't my kind of music. But to each their own. Welcome back! Jon

Thank you Jon,
Things have been getting a little thin on the ground music wise, but I am still working in the background, now and then a little gem surfaces, just got to keep the file depository site paid for and NOT forget it,can easily lose all your collection in one instant. I'll politely ignore your comments then (jazz that is)

Thank you for this. It's not available anywhere else. The Nic Jones track alone makes it worth the effort, but there is some other great music on this album too.
