Playback 2011-06-11: 1st generation Maxell XLII-100 cassette on Nakamichi BX300 cassette deck -> azimuth & pitch adjusted, heads cleaned & demagnatized -> Tascam CD-RW900SL pro CD recorder -> CD-RW (usually no track splits) -> computer -> EAC secure -> wav file(s) -> Audacity (for fades and/or glitch repair, volume adjustments, no EQ) -> CD Wave for track splits -> Trader's Little Helper -> various ears around the world.
Nothing here has ever been commercially released to my knowledge. If I'm wrong, please advise & I'll take the offending trax offline.
Thanks to the original taper, "Reel Master Gaule", for recording it off the air and sending it my way.
Corrections welcome. Maybe someone has more loacation information. Helen Watson was also on the bill (I don't have her tracks). If the pitch is still incorrect, email me & maybe I'll get around to fixing it. I use a pitch pipe, check 3-4 songs & when in doubt compare 1-2 songs on a time-appropriate album, but sometimes I'm off. If Dolby was present, it was dealt with as seemed best.
Cool Sonics Series CS-022 Another one for Bert! Short & sweet. Nice to hear "Dobbin's Flowery Vale", I don't have many versions. Another thing I like about this set is that Peter is acoustic lead playing really complements Bert's guitar. More recordings on the way. Alas, up until September 2011, I suffered from SERIOUSLY slow internet access (hence my lousy ratio). I am fixing that as fast as I can, now that I am able. Enjoy, share, give, spread peace.
Since we're all gettin' older & reminiscin' is in vogue... Kudos to: Zongo for life support & Lochner for microphones & much more. A bow to Fast Freddie for running Video Dick's Record Emporium with the bathroom office full of tape decks & supporting my 1980's 20+ cassette-a-day habit (4 machines at home just weren't enough)! Thanks to Hanwaker (few among us can keep his pace) for over 30 years of trading, friendship (& frau introductions!). Mountains of gratitude to Davmar, D.White, Sanchez, Elliot, The Florida Kid, Kloiber, Zingg, JTW, Bershaw, Boston Gold, Moore, Miller, Gough (G.-if you read this, get in touch!), Berger & SO many more for all that collecting & sharing... And royal thanks to The Man In The Palace, Doc Tinker, Brinkhoffs, Barely Eatin', Reel Master Gaule, Dean Parrish (how are ya dude?) & all those traders who housed & fed me through my many music acquisition & travel years. Steppin' back to the seeds - hats off to Brother Kent, Uncle Jake, Ena Whisnant (& her neighbor Frank) & his honor Ptomaine Thomas. A glass is raised to Byron for musical horizon expansion & am much obliged to J & Thurston for keepin' my concert fires burnin' since my continental shift.
