Thank you very much, Onx. I only had an mp3 of this, taken from the DIW CD. So it's very nice to have a flac from the original vinyl.

great record thank you so much!

serviceton said...

Fine onxidlib - very fine !
Thanks so much for this one

PS Did your photo skills really get good just from posting here?

onxidlib said...

Serviceton,

yes!

Before I've almost never took a picture.
I never owned an apparatus. I simply wasn't interested in taking pictures for myself.
I dislike "souvenirs".

Looking at pictures - from friends or from the family - I did or better do enjoy - but I never was seeking them.
Also pictures from "artists"...

When my son got an used camera I started to take pictures - which means 99,99% from LP covers.

serviceton said...

my photos always turn out rubbish
This is great ! - gets quite imposing in parts doesn't it . .. :o)

Out of interest, as we chat idly back and forth in public about cover-art - how many downloads are you looking at so far for this post? - over 100 I'm sure.
It's nice that people sa 'Ta' isn't it? . . . . . . . ..

onxidlib said...

I would say more than 160 posts here and there since October 2010.

It's not that I'm a great photographer - there is this fine software called "Photoscape" which helps me to "hide" the parts of the pictures which are not so successful...
Although I do not make any bigger changes - sometimes more brightness (these days here are quite cloudy)or depth - and then I cut them out of the picture I make...

And you're right - maybe this idle should better be located at "Free Form" !?

As I am not a native english speaker please explain : "It's nice that people sa 'Ta' isn't it? . . . . . . . ..".
Especially the last four words are making me a bit helpless.
What is not...?

kinabalu said...

'Ta' is informal English for thanks/thank you. Sa is a typo for say, I'd think. Keep up the conversation. I'm enjoying it. English is not my native language, either. If I were to use it, though, comprehension would be, shall we say, somewhat geographically constricted.

Your pictures are fine, onxidlib, but I'm still looking forward to see your scanner start working. Scanner & Photoshop are probably the best combination to do the job with covers.

Thanks for wonderful record.

onxidlib said...

I'll go to "Free Form" for "unmusical" considerations...

serviceton said...

Sorry for my unclear comment, O.
All this "English Only" is a kind of cultural imperialism !
K. is correct: - "Ta" means Thanks, and 'sa' I should have typed as 'say'.
I'll ask with different words - How many downloads have you had so far of this Kondo/Lovens/Lytton album? It would be over 100 by now I'm sure.
It is just saddening to note that you don't even need the fingers on one hand to count the people who have left a comment before/after downloading .

onxidlib said...

No problem Serviceton - just right now I checked Multiupload - and it says that I have 181 downloads.

For more - somewhat confused - thoughts please go to "Free Form".

But for the moment I wish you a good night.

digging this--a whole different ball of wax from Kondo's later stuff with Laswell
