Transfer & Restoration by Prof. Stoned

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Prof. sez:

Here's another small oddity that just begs for a CD release. This stereo mix was omitted from the otherwise superb HDCD remaster 
of the S/T Buffalo Springfield. This is part of a short "Prof. Stoned cleans house" series, meaning these little projects have 
been on my HD for a while but were abandoned or forgotten about at some point. Until now...! 

The original stereo vinyl version of this album was withdrawn five months after its initial release, to be replaced by a version 
that omitted 'Scold' but added the hitsingle For What It's Worth. The Lp only started selling outside of LA after the single hit 
the charts, and this was in a time when mono was still the reigning format, so this LP is pretty hard to find in clean condition.

Since I can already feel the question coming ("Why not rip the whole album?"), I'll answer here: because the afforementioned CD 
sounds far superior. It was meticulously remastered by Neil Young's Archives crew from the true original master tapes. Although 
decent sounding, this LP is one of those typical 60's mid-range heavy loud cut's and even in unworn top condition (like the copy 
I have), it will sound mildly distorted in places because it was not made with critical listeners in mind. It took me a while to 
get the result here as clean as it is now.  

Enjoy!
