5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 78 transfers, 2 Dec. 2013
Robert Parker was an Aussie sound engineer who revolutionised the sounds found on 78 records. He dragged them into the hifi age by recreating them in digital stereo.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic goons now on cd, 1 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i tried transferring this from my 10" LP i've had since i was 10 but then realized i couldn't compete with this Cd, with extra tracks from the George Martin era (think he went off to produce some boy band) . You can here the links here on the proon song from the 78 era of silly songs to the goons and then on to the Pythons . Essential humor

Loved the movie but always felt there was something missing. By placing the reader in the cops head the novel is able to properly reflect the pagan protestant conflicts

5.0 out of 5 stars classic chess instro collection, 29 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as an LP from a remainder shop in the 90's and have now upgraded to the Cd with 2 extra tracks . Theres some really great performances here even though none were hits and it works well as a whole album. The only surprise was there is no album of chess instro hits Juke, Grumblin guitar etc, but thats not the fault of this collection.

Robert Parkers 78 jazz transfers were never bettered. This is effectively his greatest hits . Includes an excellent demonstration of his magic turning a bog standard scratchy 78 into a stereo classic

3.0 out of 5 stars Sony MDR MA300 Great phones - after adjustments, 30 May 2013
When I had these 1st off I was disappointed. I bought them for because I wanted over ear but they came with 2 major niggles:

1 The phones are fairly heavy so prolonged use made the hard head band extremely uncomfortable. Had to recycle a soft headband from an old set so now perfect.

2 - 2M of heavy lead wire sounds generous but the trouble was that I was either tripping over the surplus or the big lump of rolled wire was jogging my ipod to pause every time I moved - solution cut off the surplus wire and solder on a new plug. If I ever want more lead plug in an extension wire.

Finally I have a great sounding extremely comfortable set of phones I can wear for as long as I want . If I had to work this out how come sony couldn't.
