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!

Been looking for the original mix for some time, I cannot wait to hear this. I fine release coinciding with the Long Strange Trip documentary. Thank you!

Oh my god I have been waiting for a clean rip of this for years! That reissue LP sounded so poor, like an NR'd crosley needledrop.

Thankyou prof!!!

Thanks for another gem! Love this mix - so great to hear it from an original pressing as opposed to a reissue.

Sounds fantastic as always, Prof. Your perfectionism and attention to detail do not go unnoticed and are very appreciated. Thanks so much for another gem.

The original mix was the best mix IMHO. Thanks

Thank you!! Great album, great mix!

mpb said...

many more thanks to the prof of course. i think a lot of us have been crossing our fingers this transfer would arrive! and for those who believe 'the gold is in the live recordings': it is less often discussed that the titanic LIVE/DEAD lp was remixed for rhino's reissues. happily, the original (more echo for a creepier ambience among other differences) is easily enjoyed on the original WB cd. no idea about recent vinyl reissues (mofi, rhino).

This Mac user has been on a little voyage of discovery about rar files and WinZip. I ended up with flac files which I can't unlock. Thanks anyway!

Absolutely beautiful... a treasured addition to my collection replacing the 2013 high-def version, and clearly 'the' psychedelic mix. My sincere thanks for your efforts Prof.

Amazing ! Great transfer of this rare mix ! Again, thank you Profstoned,your're really my favorite ND's ;-)

Great sounding transfer! Played it several times and the quality is really top notch. The mix itself is more interesting than the version I have on CD (which I'm assuming is the remix version from the early 70s) so it's great to hear this 1969 release. Thanks.

Kwork said...

Thank you prof! Since they screwed up on all cd releases of this, and now the official download by giving us the wrong mix, it's up to us fans to correct the situation. I prefer this mix for sure, and can't even listen to the early 70s remix after hearing this in its psychedelic majesty. Thank you very much! This kills the shoddy mastering on the WB albums box from 2010.

Had a low quality version of this, so happy to have a good quality version. Such a great album in it's manic raw energy. Thank you so much for all your wonderful work! It gets very much appreciation by all. I am an Analog guy and was wondering if you ever did any reel transfers?
They sound so nice!

Dear profstoned,

Thank you so much for your brilliant work on Aoxomoxoa. 3 years ago, I had originally written to you about the possibility, of you working your magic on this record. You were not completely positive but you left the door open.

The other day, I checked your site and there it was!!!
I cannot thank you enough. The 24/96 HiDef is crystal clear. It almost sounds like you found the master tapes. I cannot see how Garcia or anyone could find the album cluttered to perform a lobotomy on something so enchanting.

Again thanks for your work and have a pleasant summer.

Kind Regards,

zogaddams

THANK YOU.THANK YOU. THAAAAAANK YOUUU!

Duncan said...

Wow, it's so rare to find something amazing on the internet, thanks!

D said...

This is really worthwhile, there are significant differences and parts of the recording that really jump out like some claps on St. Stephen I never noticed before and a vastly different presentation of the drums on China Cat.

Leper Lord said...

WOW is a 1st reaction , but does not cover the range of emotions this rip brings me

Thanks mate
