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?

Here we are in 2017, and its time to re-awaken the blog

Not all the previously posted albums will be re-linked at this stage, it will be quite a long job to do so, but as interest is still shown from the comments I get, certain of the previous postings will be updated with a new "dropbox" link.

I have control of these resources so not having to rely on fragile file repositories that come and go, change their features often and have time limits, the links should work for some time to come.

I still monitor the email address and could be responsive to requests for particular posts to be "Re-upped" otherwise I will work backwards in time re-linking as time permits.

Update Status: Re-linked= 36 albums
                                                 New Posts = 3 Albums

Expressions of interest in comments could well speed up the restoration of file links, at least any comments will provide a focus to what to do and in what order 😊

 

Archive re-awakes


Archive is coming alive again soon when files are moved to Dropbox.
