Olympic Runners - Greatest Hits in WAV

We have finally got the WAV link for you to enjoy the Olympic Runners Greatest Hits, the MP3 link will follow shortly.

You will not find this compilation in this quality on any other site, unless they have stolen it from here.

Please remember that I restore for myself, so any surface noise etc. is usually not removable without destroying the sound. If you wish to do any additional restoring yourself then be my guest. All I have removed is the clicks manually.

Will King - Backed Up Against The Wall LP & 12'' Singles in WAV

This is the complete LP by Will King and both 12'' Singles released by him too.

He never recorded another Album again, which is a shame as he had a pretty good voice.

As with all my vinyl please remember they have been played many times, so I restore albums for my own enjoyment. Negative comments will be removed and the post deleted.

If you wish to do more to them then that is your choice, I can live with surface noise as vinyl creates this just the same as tape hiss.

Coming in November/December 2016

Coming to this blog in November/December 2016, the complete Olympic Runners Greatest Hits.
Ripped from CD & Vinyl and fully restored in WAV & MP3 format.

All tracks from CD will be ripped in 16 bit Linear 44100Hz and no additional EQ or NR will be applied.

All Vinyl tracks will be ripped in 16 bit Linear & 44100 Hz flat transfer.

All Vinyl tracks will be cleaned using the Spin Clean Vinyl Washer Mk II.

Manually de-clicked using Izotope RX3 in 32 Bit float.

No noise reduction or additional EQ will be added, so some surface noise may remain (this is one of the inherent faults of vinyl)

All MP3 tracks will be ripped in true 320kbps using iTunes encoder.

Regards Simon John.
