Ok here's one of my "surprises" in Audio Restoration.
while working on transferring a pile of 78's i found this one. Ok Ok so what's "New" about this disc.
Ok its in STEREO. what! you may exclaim a 1933 British Parlophone 78 in stereo.
yes and... no
what we have is the full backing, Minus Freddy's solo on side one, and on side two we have the whole arrangement. so whats new about that then you may ask?
well using some newly developed technology and a hour of "tinkering" I for the first time have "synched" this masterpiece in REAL STEREO.!! take a listen and by the way Ill give you ALL the sides too. you can "roll your own" mixes at will (who's will?)
The 78 was not in the best condition, It had been played literly to death by the time i transfered it. But with a little of my own brand of "magic" we can really apreciate what a great disc this really was.
