Joe says that some of the performances are generally sub-par and there are problems with out-of-tune instruments on the multi-tracks that are grouped with other instruments and cannot be mixed out ...

Maybe this has been discussed somewhere above, but I sure would be glad to see the whole run released, like Halloween '77 was.

Not gonna happen. Joe says that some of the performances are generally ...

I do convert a lot of my old LPs to some CD type of list, usually two Lps to a CD, but my software is so simple that the volume always comes out low. I would not play the LPs much, I just put the burn ...

The Beatles Capitol recordings came with both stereo and mono, but the mono was just a fold down of the stereo mix. Most of them sound awful. This is why Beatles fans spend hours doing needle drops on ...

I'm surprised that you are pointing out this common knowledge. Have you really never heard the official 1978 vinyl album before?

Well it certainly isn't common knowledge as far as Joe is concerne ...

The whole line, including the laughter, is definitely all Jimmy's voice, and I've never had the slightest inclination to believe otherwise.

I'd like to have some of what you guys are smoking.

BTB III is complete garabge - just random stuff taken from vinyl boots on the tracker here - plus it's lossy. Why waste your time?

Upgrade is here:

Already baked my cassette and did a fine transfer, so I probably won't bother with this, since they are just going from one antiquated format to another.

Also related to that, do we expect to ever hear any unreleased Absolutely Free related material?

Absolutely Free was recorded quickly and economically to 4-track tape. Extra overdubs were added l ...

After listening to this particular seed again I would still rate it A/A-

I would say this Milan tape is a weak "A-". Nowhere near an "A".

Though you can hear everything clearly and there is a ni ...

I am actually quite puzzled that this show was rated so low on FZShows as this was always an excellent tape. This seems to be a common thing among the Italian leg, which is mostly rated as B+ tapes: m ...

Yeah, these mixes are interesting for sure, but in my opinion they are work in progress mixes. I wouldn't say that FZ had any involvement with them at all. We know that he had no involvement with the ...
