        I&#39;m always up this early&#33; (Even though I haven&#39;t got a proper job.)

        All the charts are working fine, except yours. Any suggestions?

            About the Soul Investigators and Calypso Kings:
            It&#39;s from Finland and there are copies in every shop here in Helsinki. If anyone wants to get this just PM me.

            I&#39;ll also have 100% finnish stuff on my easter mix tape and some of it is also re-issued and some has been released as 12&quot; by Jazzpuu label... Same thing goes for those. OG records can also been found but the prices... Well you know

                Semrad is that Leon Ware tune Why I Came To California and, if so, is it just a re-press or an edit?


                • #9
                  Do you mean the album Oiling Boiling (UFO.002) or the song Oiling Boiling which is on the Happy Jazz Band album? I actually have both, but won&#39;t trade those. OG Happy Jazz Band and Two Faces albums can be found pretty easily and there&#39;s also re-issue available on HJB. Oiling Boiling album is pretty hard to find.

                    yep the &#39;oiling boiling&#39; lp. I know its hard to find.  

                    Bill - The leon ware review was done by sie. Looks like a re-edit.

                        Thankyou&#33;&#33; About time I found a kindred spirit on that one. I even flinch from playing tracks on comps that are pts 1&amp;2 segued together. All re-edits of old tunes smack of arrogance and vanity to me.

                        I even get uncomfortable about pitching a record up a notch. Was it Ron Hardy or maybe David Mancuso who used to DJ at The Loft and refused to alter the record in any way, no edit, no mixing, no change of tempo. Just respect for what the artist set out to do. Can&#39;t fault that in many regards.

                        Kinda like painting some eyebrows on the Mona Lisa.

                          Mancuso. everything at correct speed, whole full length version played, with gaps between records. Ron Hardy was the opposite - messing with everything&#33;

                          re-edits can be good, like some of the disco re-edits, when they&#39;re just a subtle tweak here and there and the drumming irregularities removed so they can be beat matched properly

                            I totally appreciate David Mancuso&#39;s approach and I&#39;ve enjoyed watching him play every time I&#39;ve seen him, but I just don&#39;t agree with this notion of the sanctity of the original recording.

                            Ron Hardy&#39;s mixes are amazing, even everything I&#39;ve hear is ropily recorded, but they&#39;re so exciting, and his edits are incredible. There&#39;s an edit he did of the Dells&#39; Adventure, in which he turned a 1 min. 20 sec reprise into an 8 minute track. It&#39;s brilliant.

                            The challenge for a good editor, I think, is to try and take original tunes that nobody would&#39;ve touched in their original form and turn them into a new track that people WILL play. That&#39;s when it&#39;s at its most valid.

                            However, I&#39;ve edited several part ones and twos of 7-inches together. If you&#39;re great at cutting, you don&#39;t need to do that. I&#39;m shit, so this is my way of doing stuff like that. And I still have time to skin up.

                            Really, where&#39;s the beef?

                              Im with bill. Re-Edits are nice. You take out the shit bits and have a much better track or two sides to a 7 as one.

                              Also its better its called &#39;re-edit&#39; rather then &#39;&lt;insert-name-of-david-holmes-dj-format-etc&gt;&#39; tune.
