Transferred Using a Truncated Eliptical Stylus which was a 2.5 Side 2 was using a 3.3.
Here's A real treat a 78 in REAL stereo ! what you may say ok ok there are some Duke Ellington recordings in stereo from'33 and a few odd's and sod's from other outfits namely the Glenn Miller Film soundtracks which were found to be recorded on 35mm magnetic film and recorded in "sections" so they could be mixed in the standard mono for the film. these were remixed in the 90's in a pretty convincing stereo sound and also used on the Home Video releases.
This is like those Miller tracks, one 78 and 2 versions of the same song, side one has the band plus Nat blowing his horn and side two just has the band minus Nat's solo.
so what i did was to put the two side of the disc into my fav multi track program, do a bit of panning and timing and voila a real stereo song from the late 30's (could be early 40's too)
and the band was pretty tight too, the "backing" track was only half a second longer which i did a bit of "time shifting" to correct.
I also have Swing studies No. 2 with Freddy Gardner playing Japanese Sandman which I'll work on a bit later providing anyone cares.
Transferred and Restored By Adrian Gregg In May 2008 in under 10 mins for Transferring and restoration. the stereo "MIX" took a bit longer! as I do these for love and not for $ I only spent a brief time working the stereo out It could be MUCH better with a little work.
Again we have 3 versions
1 GOOD version (my preferred restoration)
2 TMNR overkill on the cleaning for those who hate surface noise
3 REAL STEREO there are 2 versions of this a straight mix and one with a little reverb on the Trumpet Solo
