From Lou Davenport:

Robert Hunter's Jack O'Roses LP transcription available for download
EDIT: I've done a new 24-bit transcription using even better equipment (new phono cartridge and tonearm), that's available here or here:

This transcription is absolutely gorgeous, IIDSSM, with essentially no surface noise or tracking distortion even on the last tracks on each side.


ORIGINAL POST: Last year, I transcribed Jack O'Roses using high-end analog equipment, but then realized Lossless Legs wouldn't take it since it was a commercial release, and I didn't particularly care to torrent it anywhere else, so I sat on it.

Just now, it occurred to me I could at least upload it to my site as a ZIP archive and make it available for download. The archive contains 16-bit FLAC files, front and back cover images, a TXT file with information on the LP and transcription (below), and FLAC fingerprints.

If you haven't heard this LP (hey, there must be someone), it's really special. This transcription has a more spacious sound than the MP3s that Mr. Hunter made available on his website.

Please feel free to post this URL to other forums or pass it around however you choose. And if Mr. Hunter objects to his work being made available in this way, I hope he will let me know so I can remove it from my site. It's just that it's such a beautiful performance and has been out of print for so long.

Enjoy!


From TXT file:

The sound files available in this ZIP archive are transcriptions of a near-mint LP copy of Robert Hunter's Jack O'Roses, using high quality analog equipment. They are FLAC files, and so you will need a FLAC decoder to make WAV files, or audio software that can play FLAC files directly. FLAC is a lossless compression format that decompresses to produce CD-quality WAV files. MP3 files, by contrast, preserve a decent amount of the sound in a recording, but lose the low-level detail that gives it realism. The difference is plain even on moderately priced equipment. Further information on FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) and free downloads of the FLAC coding/decoding software can be found on the Sourceforge FLAC web site.

The analog rig used to extract the sound from the grooves is near state-of-the-art, producing almost none of the tracking distortion or surface noise normally associated with LPs. The LP used for this transcription had only been played once previously, to make a cassette copy years ago. Even so, there is some slight pressing noise in the first seconds of the first track, and minor tracking distortion during loud passages in the last, short tracks on each side of the LP (tracks 5 and 8). The tracking distortion is much less noticeable than on another, nearly pristine LP copy that had also been lent to me for transcription.

Equipment used for A/D conversion: Lyra Helikon phono cartridge, Linn LP12/Lingo turntable, Linn Ittok tonearm, Audioquest LeoPard tonearm cable, PS Audio PS2 preamplifier, Kimber PBJ interconnect, M-Audio Audiophile USB A/D converter. The mildest possible declicking was used to eliminate some of the more obvious ticks and pops. Other than that, there has been no noise reduction.
