That's an interesting idea I'll think about some more.  First I'll need to check the tapes to ensure they're still playable...

Mother Earth!

I wish that track was available legally somewhere, in a proper mix, not just on low quality bootlegs.

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: Second Wave
« Last post by rob on March 31, 2019, 12:07:09 AM »
Actually we did shop Second Wave to Sundazed and Rhino back in 1996 and they both passed on it.  One Way (now Wounded Bird) had just reissued the entire J&D catalog on CD and were happy to add Second Wave to their offerings.  Vinyl didn't have its renaissance yet in the late '90s, we didn't really consider a release other than on CD.

Wounded Bird still only offers physical product (actually just CDs), so Gertie and I are working on getting Second Wave distributed digitally on Amazon, iTunes, etc. hopefully very soon.  If we release the uncompressed versions of the masters there will be a couple of mixes no one's heard before, as I did't have access to the uncompressed versions of those songs after I left LA and Jan added a few tweaks to them.

The dynamic range of the recordings went (on average) from around 13 down to 10 when the tapes were compressed for the first release of the album, and then further from around 10 down to around 6 or 7 for the newest reissue.  Not my idea and not without my protesting; the Loudness Wars won 2-0.  Rest assured the upcoming digital releases will be a sonic revelation of these recordings.

I'd like to have a high def version to offer as well, as you'd find on HDTracks or other audiophile sites, but the highest resolution of the digital tapes that currently exists is 16/44.1.  If the masters (they were all mixed to analog tape) were captured at a higher resolution that would be possible, but I don't have access to those tapes, unfortunately.  Maybe Gertie will be able to locate them.

can you delete the repeat posts.

I have a good deal of footage of Jan and I working at Al's Red Barn studio recording Second Wave.  I can transfer it from VHS and upload it if there's enough interest in seeing it.
