| Some songs were originally recorded on a disc recording
Meisner machine, (1946+),Webster wire recorder, (1947+), then
on professional disc cutting lathes (Presto K (1948), and on
a Scully (1954/55). then transferred to Teac tape decks, (19and
Tascam machines, finally digitized on Panasonic units.
Most of the songs are fourth and fifth generation, as they were transferred to newer machines - so quality is what it is. Some transfers were on two ganged Webster heads on my attempt at multitrack recording, which worked, but had many down sides. It worked for what I wanted and needed. (Long story!)
The instrumental recordings are of recent vintage with music notation (Finale computer software) played by computer and synchronized to a Casio keyboard for the accompaniment, and recorded on Teac and Tascam machines, then computer digitized into CDs. The vocals also have instrumental renditions (not on this collection).
One day, back in 1954, after Alice, the girl I was dating, had helped me hang sound proofing drapes in a recording studio I was opening, saw a paper on a music stand and asked what it was. I told her that it was a new song I was working on. She asked me to sing it. Then she asked me to sing it again, and joined me in the singing. Then unknown to her, I turned on a recorder and slipped a disc on the turn table and started it. Then I asked her to sing it.. She did! I found that recording, and after so many years, it was in pretty good condition considering the age and the abuse it had taken in moving situations, It was recorded on a Presto disc cutter.
She didn't know that I had written
that song for her., I didn't play it for her until after we were
But the 'pack-rat' in me didn't obey! THANK GOD.
