This classic album from Andrus, Blackwood & Co. has been restored and remastered under the direction of founding member Sherman Andrus. It is believed that the original master tapes have been lost or destroyed. This digital remaster was meticulously lifted from the original 1981 vinyl release. We used only studio quality turntables, analog to digital converters and multi-track recording software at high sample rates. It has been remastered from this source to meet the demands of todays digital media players.
What you WILL hear: You will hear the vinyl "bed" of the recording during the quietist parts of this restoration as well as the overall "warmth" of the vinyl sound.
What you WON'T hear: You won't hear large annoying pops, cracks or anything that takes away from the recording. We spent dozens of hours going over every song, second by second, manually repairing each deficiency.
