Patience, Kids...
I have been working for the past two weeks on remastering the first two "Variations" - Wild Love and Yo Mama (Drowning Witch will have to wait a bit, as I have other projects that were put off to allow for these, but should be ready in time for the Holiday frenzy). Be watching for an announcement regarding these early next week...
Just so we all know what we're getting into:
1) These all were MP3 sourced, 160 compression. The sound quality is pretty damn good, IMO.
2) The remastering involved: a) resampling to correct pitch variation {not too bad with the WL, but rampant with YM}, b) elimination of "digi-pops" on several tracks, tho' some residual noise is still detected on WL771020 Boston early {you can only do so much before you start mangling the sound wave}, c) elimination of small gaps - especially on Wild Love, which seemed to be a song where the tape got 'flipped', every track had a gap; I think I stayed in meter quite well with these, d) some re-EQ to minimize the jarring effect of one concert hall 'sound' to another, and e) mixing of the tracks to create a smooth segue between them {each disk will play thru without gap or interruption}. I went out of chronological order on Wild Love so as to avoid it becoming a 3-disk set; you'll just have to trust me on that decision... Remastering done with Soundforge 5.
