Hmmm that is an idea. But I am a pretty anonymous sort of guy. I promise to take a video at least.

Can I get arrested for putting something like that on YouTube?

Well when I heard the intro to Chapel Hill on the podcast I was like, why is this not on the record...

Oh Sprite, Iím sorry to have put you in that position. I was half kidding.

Hold on to your anonymity my friend. The demos will surface elsewhere soon enough

Ha no worries. I'll definitely digitize the tracks and get some advice where to put them if people are having trouble accessing them.

If thereís anyone of influence reading this, it would be nice to get a lossless download code for the bonus LPs.

Iíll do my own needle drop, and I have some other albums I need to do that for, but it would be nice.

I couldn't agree more, hammerhands. We hear some really good quality demos at the end the 12th and final podcast. I hope such quality can be obtained in digital format.

On a related note, I'll need to get a turntable to convert these into digital format as well. Any recommendations?

waveforms

also, these waveforms are the FLAC files. they sound significantly brighter than the MP3 files. and the channels are reversed.

I was just listening to IC then HC, Head Carrier is so compressed, so dull, just like those pics of Oona, etc.

I had forgotten the word eyrie shows up at the start of Oona.

Who is Oona? A sound she makes? Oona OíNeill and/or Gala Dali?

Thereís an old electronics repair store in this city run by some vintage guys that fix vintage stereo equipment. I bought an old Duel turntable from them.

I suspect you can find a place like that near you.



There are also a few hifi shop that take trades that have lots of nice used equipment. Those audiophiles have a sickness and are always upgrading to something newer or older.

I only have a 16bit/44.1khz recorder [Boss BR-600] and I may want to upgrade if Iím going to finally convert some of these albums. The nice thing is the Boss runs on batteries and I donít have to have a computer on so I can get rid of a lot of noise. Maybe I will get an audio interface I can use with iOS, or a portable recorder. I would like recommendations on that.

My sister bought me a turntable that plugs into a computer with USB, has software to split the tracks. I will have to look at that. Very convenient, but I donít know if I trust it. Only 44.1khz or 48khz, I think.
