    Wow. That's the first comp I've seen with that good a tracklisting for ages. But does it really cost 25 quid?

        Safari Park is one of my all time fav library tunes, better than Tropicolia IMO! I thought it said 25 quid at the top... or was that dollars...

          If I'm thinking correctly (and that may very well not be the case as my brain is baked from mad re-working tracks in the studio for almost 24 hours now - no sleep til cookin&#39, there's a booty funk compilation appeared in a shop near me on this Scissors label. Loads of classic funk 45 gear. A truly uninspired selection I seem to recall, albeit good music.
          Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...

            180 g vinyl means nothing if they've just recorded the tracks off vinyl! Call me a sceptic but I can't see this being kosher. Would love it to be obviously.

              You can do wonderful things straight off vinyl, Serms. Surely you of all people should know&#33; But you&#39;re right, the only thing 180gm vinyl does is throw your back out carrying the stuff around...

                Depends - if you&#39;re going to apply a bit of restoration to it, then, yes you can get good stuff off vinyl. I&#39;ve had a couple of tracks from Boulevard LPs put through the CEDAR process, and they sounded fantastic - and if CEDAR can make Boulevard&#39;s manky cheapo vinyl sound good, you can imagine the results on a nice expensive pressing.

                I&#39;m not overly impressed by people doing new compilations direct from the vinyl, complete with crackles all over the place, though. Many&#39;s the compilation I&#39;ve bought that is virtually unlistenable because of all the surface noise. I don&#39;t want to pay proper money for something that sounds like a mate&#39;s compilation tape. But then I&#39;m a grumpy old git......

                If I can voice a controversial opinion though, personally I don&#39;t think vinyl really does Peer recordings justice - I&#39;ve got the Bruton CD of Peer tracks and, to be honest it sounds gorgeous. Whoever produced and engineered these recordings was obviously thinking years ahead. Amphonic tracks sound nice too.....

                  Anyone who records off vinyl and takes surface noise, crackles and all is a chump out for a quick buck. I&#39;m not impressed by them either. I&#39;ve done a few recordings off original vinyl in my time, I&#39;ve used all sorts of things, Audiophile suites, multi million pound desks, proper sit-in mastering/cutting sessions - I remember some with a guy who did all the mastering for Black Sabbath... Removing clicks etc a village idiot could do.

                  If the Peer recordings are that well engineered, then it&#39;ll be even easier to get a good quality recording off original vinyl, but why? I would&#39;ve thought they&#39;d still have the original tapes. Unless of course...

                    Peers are by far the best engineered libraries Ive heard. Bruton&#39;s are too &#39;crystal&#39; for me and amphonics are up there too. Wonderful stuff.

                    How much does running something through cedar cost Lord T. Ive got some material I need rescuing.

                      Depends - the actual software is v. expensive I believe, but I know people who know people who etc. etc.

                      Someone who might be able to point you in the right direction is Alan Bunting, who does a lot of this sort of thing, and who&#39;s quite well regarded in the business - he does a lot of clean-up work on 78s for Vocalion and other labels. I can&#39;t remember the adress of his website, but if you do a google search on Percy Faith, it&#39;ll probably be among them.

                      I&#39;ll make some inquiries about CEDAR, and see what I can come up with.

                      And Nick - I&#39;m pretty sure all the original Peer tapes survive, so going back to the vinyl would be laziness more than anything else, unless of course this is a somewhat less than legal enterprise......

                      Where Peer are concerned, another hazard of going back to the vinyl is that for the first few LPs, Peer issued both stereo and mono versions - and, let&#39;s face it, you&#39;d want the stereo version, wouldn&#39;t you? Well, I would, anyway&#33;

                          it&#39;s an interesting area. i&#39;ve heard some cedar-processed material which has sounded great and also some which sounded incredibly squeaky and downright nasty. as someone who does quite a lot of sound restoration for people, it never ceases to amaze me how some restored recordings get a release - the quality can be abysmal&#33; i&#39;m not talking strictly about cedar here, just generally - i&#39;ve heard several restored cd&#39;s in the past 10 years that have set my teeth on edge.

                          serms, if you want to have a chat with cedar, their number is 01223 414117.

                          the restoration system i like using is waves. world class and worth every penny.

                          http://www.waves.com/default.asp?url=content.asp?id=59

                          i&#39;ve had clients commenting that the stuff i&#39;ve done for them in waves has sounded nicer to their ears than material they&#39;ve had processed in cedar. it&#39;s all very subjective of course and i&#39;m not blowing my own trumpet by any means - i&#39;m sure many would say that cedar would p*ss all over my efforts with waves.

                          very interesting subject though&#33;
