Yesterday I came into possession of a test pressing of a 1977 recording of the CSM (College of San Mateo) Jazz Band, under the direction of Fred Berry. It's a very unusual recording in that one side of it is a 45 RPM direct-to-disk recording of exceptional quality. It's probably only been played a handful of times in its existence.

This was recorded at Sonic Arts Studios, which was owned by Leo de gar Kulka. They did some great stuff there and this is very, very rare.

I took it to digital last night and have put the tracks, along with image of the album cover and labels at the web page below. The audiophiles out there will appreciate that this is a recording with *DYNAMICS*!! If you've got a system that can do it, this is one you want to play at live levels! Wow...

Please hit the link below for the web page I put up on this. Listen to the tracks and download them if you like. This is one any audiophile should enjoy.

Hi, If they are really great recordings 16B/44K is not really good enough. I like to use 24B/192K for such. Bigger files for sure, but far better resolution.

Good listening
