PostSubject: Makin' CDs   Fri Aug 26, 2016 6:43 pm

When I sold my LP collection I knew there were some items in there that hadn't been rereleased on CD. I did a couple hundred of them before I sold, but I knew there were more.

A couple of them came to mind this week, and I started looking for them online.

Nothing in released CDs.

Nothing in legal downloads.

A couple of tracks from a couple albums in illegal/gray downloads (if they're not offered legally anywhere, is a needle drop really illegal?)

A couple tracks posted on YouTube (a massive repository of illegal stuff).

More tracks posted on various shady/scary Russian websites, which I usually avoid like the plague because they're never what they say they are. My browser protection lights up like a Christmas tree when I access one of these sites.

So, I can ALMOST assemble the albums I want from a variety of sources. By importing them into my digital audio software I can match levels and EQ, convert files to one common format, and burn a CD-R of them. Cover images (front, rear, inside) are really getting common these days. It's rare you can't piece together a rare LP cover replica.

What are you looking for? I don't have a huge CD collection, maybe a thousand, but if Lady Luck smiles maybe I have what you're looking for. I do have some weird shit.
