After having lurked on these forums for many a year, and seen all the fantastic fan created preservations, edits, expanded scores, documentaries and so on I thought it was high time I offered a little something in return to everyone.
I’ve always been a huge fan of the original LP presentations of the Star Wars and Empire LPs (Jedi was unfortunately relegated to single LP status, and half of that is concert suites I believe), as well as the pure analogue presentation which - in many ways - surpasses the quality of the 16-bit CDs.
I’d love to share these with others here, and have produced very high quality 24-bit/96kHz transfers of each using some pretty good quality equipment (Rega P3 turntable / Modified RB250 tone-arm with Mitchell counterweight / Goldring G1042 cartridge / Modified Creek OBH-15 phono stage… just incase anyone is interested 😉 ).
My problem is I don’t have a clue about DVD video/audio authoring! If I provided the raw captures, would someone here be willing to author these 24/96 files to a DVD Video, audio track (NOT ‘DVD Audio’ - as many players don’t offer this functionality - confusing I know!) and perhaps have a few purty pictures on display per track to complete the package? I was thinking of one of Ralph McQuarrie’s superb production paintings per track…
Any offers of help please PM me. These will be released ‘out there’ at some point (hopefully soon) so please no PMs for the raw files… patience 😉
