This was the trio’s first recording, which surprisingly, has never made it to CD. I’d have expected to see it in Evan Parker’s Psi label, where other of his Incus recordings have appeared.

Since I didn’t expect to see the LP on here, I paid £50.00 for a mint copy 6 months ago – oh well.

I can recommend the trio’s two most recent recordings: as one of the five CDs on Barry Guy’s “Mad Dogs” set (Not Two) and “Live at the Maya Festival” (No Business). Playing of a different order.

I'd like to echo the sentiments of all those who appreciate your efforts with this blog, bringing us great music we probably wouldn't hear otherwise.

I have a question for anyone out there who might be able to help. I notice some low level buzz/hum (probably 60Hz or a multiple thereof). This is especially noticeable during segments where Barry's bass is the only instrument heard. I know this kind of buzz is usually the result of a grounding issue with the turntable, but I realise sometimes this can't be helped. So, I was wondering if anyone knew of a program, either freeware or at low cost, that I could use to take the buzz out of the files I downloaded. I host a radio program called Jazz Progressions, where I have lately been featuring tracks I've acquired thanks to this blog. I'd like to feature cuts from this record, but would like to take out the buzzing noise if I can. I don't care about surface noise, but would like to get rid of anything else that doesn't belong before I play it for listeners. If you want to check out the show, you can do so at my blog, http://qualityradioproductions.blogspot.com

Thanks in advance.

HI Jason,

the rip wasn't my own.

But I will try to do a new one during the next weeks.

Colin Green said...

The only thing I can hear is vinyl roar/turntable rumble – it’s certainly not an earthing issue. That would be much louder and more prominent. The recording itself is excellent – with a nice ambience that the trio often doesn’t get – having been made by Adam Skeaping using just two microphones.

I’ve briefly compared this rip to one I’ve made from my own copy of the LP, and this rip does seem rather weighted to the lower frequencies. That might be as the result of the rip being tidied up in a sound editor, or simply reflect the tonal balance of the cartridge/phono stage. I tend to rip through a good quality phono stage, direct to a Sony recorder as a wav file, and transfer that via usb to my PC to insert track breaks, with no compression or filtering. Other than with good quality 180gm pressings, it’s difficult to avoid some vinyl roar (and even then, it’s no guarantee).

I keep running into an error message on RS. Any chance this could get reposted on GF or ZS? Thanks in advance!
