- BLOG NOW ABANDONED, PURPOSE WAS ORIGINALLY to present restored VINYL albums of both Folk & Jazz. Lack of interest and comments has resulted in me deciding to throw in the towel... Once specialising in vinyl restoration. Although I would have preferred to only post albums that I have paid for, or those of close friends, I was open to suggestions and offers of rare Folk items that need tender care and restoration, provided the supplier had the right of ownership of the physical item. NOT JUST an MP3 COPY of it. To give you an idea, I was prepared to restore vinyl belonging to another person, IF I received 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 would check their suitability for restoration. I tried to maintain the requirement for a decent set of scans for each item, where possible, as I felt the music is incomplete without it. Sometimes this was just not possible as a lot of my stock came from broadcasting organisations that had their own heavy card sleeves.
