from the original 2010 HC post-
"It is a 2CD set which I acquired in trade several years ago"

It was producer Bill Szymczyk's habit to put together a compilation of funny studio moments and send them out to friends and family as Christmas presents.
This two-disc set has moments culled from the recording of "One Of These Nights".
I've named the tracks to approximate their contents.
The "songs" are all snippets.

There's a lot of vulgarities and some "mature content" - be warned.

Trade CDR > EAC > TLH > Hunger City torrent in 2010
This LP was in pitiful shape and a repair session began as soon as I heard it.
Became worn out on how much time was required and put the project to the side.
Every so often I would return with different software and remove more noises.
All were individual spot repairs prior to using Izotope RX4.
You would doubt my sanity if I told you how many hours were invested in this renovation.

Clean up sessions
(2010-2012) Audacity (repair function on individual clicks and pops)
(2013-2015) Adobe Audition 3.0 (heal function on individual clicks and pops)
(2015) Izotope RX4 (60 Hz Hum reduction, fine crackle and thump removal)

This presentation is derived from a couple of worn vinyl discs
The original transfer included a "pop" filter that left some damaged spots that required repairs
Thousands of clicks and pops were individually repaired prior to a final Izotope RX4 crackle and thump filter
More tracks were created so it would be easier to find favorite bits and basic artwork is included
Although this is a vast improvement over the original source (IMHO) some audio disturbances do remain

For historical reference and not intended for resale or any commercial use.
