Transfer & Restoration by Prof. Stoned


Prof sez:

Here's another one in the series "essential in mono but not available on cd". This is a fresh rip
to replace the first one I did in 2010. They are very close, except that this one is slightly less
brighter sounding to match a near neutral response. 

A brilliant debut of a highly influential writer and performer. This was Cohen's 'The Freewheelin'.
I never tire of this album after years of listening. In fact, once I get older it's lyrical & musical depth only 
seem to broaden. 
This rare dedicated mono mix does not just offer a different glimpse. It merely provides a whole new sonic 
dimension to what already was an athmospheric recording. 
Despite the fact that Sony has rejected it from their reissue's, it is THE mix. I'm sure only the most 
fanatical stereo purists will disagree with me.

This was transferred from an NM copy.
You can hear some noises that you may perceive as clicks. However, these are artifacts picked
up by the vocal mic and can be heard on the official stereo CD's as well.  
The record was professionally and carefully cleaned in three steps using Audio Intelligent�s 
Enzymantic formula, Super Cleaner Formula, and Ultra pure water on a VPI 16.5 
(using VPI brushes) and Nitty Gritty mini-pro 2. After applying a light setting of CR, a handful of clicks
were removed manually, as the vinyl was very quiet to begin with.
