F.A.Q.

Who?
I have a turntable and a nice record collection, mostly LP's from the 60's & early 70's.

What?
My aim is to make rare stuff (in glorious mono or sometimes stereo) publicly available again with the best possible sound quality.

Requests?
Generally, no. I select my projects very critically. Vinyl condition is everything. I tend not to work with records that are in less than pristine condition.

Donations?
Get outta here!

Thanks very much to both Prof and Victor for this one! I didn't even know there was a mono mix. This has been a great site for me. Been following it for years. Not only have you provided me with definitive needle drops of some of my favorite lps and singles (mostly in glorious mono), you have also introduced me to many records I've never heard before. I am always interested to hear the music presented here and look forward to the comments from your various friends and followers. Thanks again for all you do.

What a terrific surprise. I can't wait to listen to it. I don't know how to thank you. You have provided so many great listening experiences. I'm so glad I stumbled onto your site a few years back. I listen to lots of all kinds of music and the things you've made available are always in the mix. Best wishes to you sir!

Thank you, Professor, and thanks to Vic. I'm looking forward to listening to this and comparing to the stereo version. Taxman

As usual,the great Prof. delivers the finest goods! I own alternate copies of many of these but your rips are frequently superior. You sir are an artist. The Cherry Red group of labels (my fave reissue outfit) should beg for your services.

Thank you for all the time and effort you put into doing these albums and making them available for us to listen to. They are always sounding incredible.

Thank you for this great vinyl rip of an original UK mono pressing of Wonderwall Music. Don't think that all of the hard work that goes into prepping and ripping and posting an album like this goes unappreciated. I've downloaded many of your rips. I love them all and I always eagerly await your next post. Thank you again for everything, you are truly generous.

This is such an amazing blog. A testament to the love of music and record collecting. Few have the patience or the resources to make such definitive rips of these rare records which have slipped into the shadowy hollows of collectors folklore. It is not only an education reading your detailed notes, but a pleasure to hear such well mastered recordings.

Thanks both to Prof and Vic. It'll be great to get a real rip of this, the only version I'd heard previously being a mediocre rip on a boot. I like this one both in mono and stereo. I wish they'd handle George's catalog the way Paul is handling his own, actually allowing the mono promo of Ram to come out, for instance. George's estate could learn some valuable lessons here. Thanks to the prof for showing us how things are supposed to be done, and all without benefit of the mastertapes as a source.

Thanks a lot. Been looking a while for a pristine recording. :-)

I didn't have much appreciation for mono recordings until I came across your blog now it's hard to listen to the stereo versions of these vintage recordings. Thanks a million.

Thanks Prof., Like another here, the only mono copy I have was downloaded from a boot as an mp3 some years back. I look forward eagerly to giving this one a spin later this evening.

I still have a jems import version of this that I got in the mid '70s, but it's stereo. I've never heard this in mono. Thank you very much! (steve)

Thanks prof. stoned! Have been wanting to hear this LP for many, many years but the prices are insane. Can't thank you enough!

Can't tell you how long I've been hoping for a mono rip of this one. You've made my day. Thanks!

Fantastic, thank you for sharing this! A super-rare mono album that I never thought I'd have the opportunity to hear.

Since this is all your ask for, it is my pleasure to write this. Thank you SO much for all of your work and dedication. Thank you for preserving our heritage and musical history.

Thanks for ripping and sharing this one with us. Although the film is a bit weird, I love George's soundtrack. Still have my original stereo vinyl LP of this.

Thanks so much for this. First heard it when orginally released, didn't quite grok it then. Glad to have it back in MONO!

Jaenes Q Records said...

Hi Prof - any chance of a re-up? Neither set of links work for me. Cheers, Q :(

Prof. Stoned said...

Only one redbook link was down, Jae. I fixed that one.

Jaenes Q Records said...

Brilliant, thanks! I thought I grabbed this at the time but it appears I was mistaken.

nameeman said...

Thanks for this, my father had it in his collection. He passed and my sister grabbed his record collection. $$$. I got his guitars though :). Anyways I never got a chance to listen to it. He recommended it to me because I used to play around with feedback and effects when recording music. I am very happy.

Prof Stoned,my dear man,sorry for my long silence-it's because I have no habit in inet communication in my far country.Your blog,attached to one of the greatest things in life (I mean music) is wonderful. My respect for You is very big. Thanks for all. With best regards from Andy.

"Wonderwall" is a mono that illustrates the superiority of mono mixes over their stereo counterparts. I remember buying this accidentally direct from Apple when it first came out and was furious at not being sent the stereo--that is, until I heard the mono. The differences are as astounding on the mono of Jackie Lomax's "Is This What You Want?" Indeed the mono-single mixes of "Sour Milk Sea" and "The Eagle Laughs At You" make the stereos unlistenable. Maybe you should try to find a mint mono copy of the album. In any case, many thanks for the mono of "Wonderwall."

Thank you very much for this - I had the CD but this blows it out the water. Much appreciated

Excellent!

Many thanks for your consistently high quality work and attention to detail.

Many thanks. Never heard the mono version. Wondering if they're any subtle differences. Looking forward...
