I agree. Excellent news!

A picture is worth a thousand words. Post 102 is worth more.

I’m late to the party, but I think this is the best song. Enjoy!

I will do my best to figure out the newsgroup and grab the out of date editions.

@7eventiesFN - I also can't afford to get copies in order to be considered for something like this.  I will respect your decision either way, but I am curious if there was another way I could be considered for your release.

I'm afraid not - these are meant as preservations for those that already have the LPs, but either cannot play them or haven't got the gear to get the best from them. It's like Harmy says with his DEs you need (or should) own the blurays first to own his versions. I.e. support the original copyright. Otherwise it's just outright theft/piracy. Which is why I won't have this next set torrented. Still need to work out how to work it. Might ask users to post a picture of them with their LPs as 'proof' and do it that way. Still to be decided - need to get them transferred again first ;)

Incidentally the original LPs can be bought on Ebay extremely cheaply. Average condition versions are practically at give-away prices. Worth hunting down...

Completely understandable.  I wish I did have them, but maybe someday.  Thanks for clarifying your stance on the matter.  I love everyone's work I've seen and heard on here, so keep up the awesome work for those who do receive copies.

Hey 7FN,

I have wanted high quality transfers of these beauties since childhood :)

I own the LP's but don't really have the equipment or know-how to get them up to a professional standard. I am drooling at the prospect of finally owning some "proper" copies of my favourite records.

I'm fine with the "take a pic" idea and have my camera at the ready :)

P.S.

I started working on some CD covers for these some ago and with not being able to source a good enough audio transfer sort of drifted off the project. If you do manage to get the trilogy transferred to serious quality I'll have to get back to the covers and finish them. 

If this is of interest to you them let me know a s I would love to include some technical info on the audio restorations.

My above comment is in regard to the "Story Of" LP's

7FN-

AntcuFaalb recently brought this project to my (and others) attention in the "Star Wars OT BONUS materials repository" thread with their post here, but also said that you had requested that your MySpleen listing be removed.  I don't know how long ago that all transpired, but I am writing you to ask if you would be willing to give sharing on MySpleen another chance?

Thank you sincerely for your clear dedication to this project and for considering this request!

 

-A.S.

7FN,

Thanks so much for your hard work and dedicaion to preserving these Story Of albums. They hold a special place in my heart from chilhood. I have recently picked up mint copies of each on LP for my peesonal collection. Do i need to send you a pic of me with the albums? I have kids of my own now and would love to share your work with them. I have copies of the first batch you did and I can't imagine you topping them. But I'm sure you have. Hope to get a PM from you soon.

Cheers,

Adam

I finally got a hold of the 'Story Of" LPs (ended up using usenet) and was amazed by the incredible quality of your work. I remember I used to go to sleep listening to these on my walkman when I was a kid, and just listening to that Roscoe Lee Browne brings back those memories. I can't stress enough how grateful I am to you for sharing these works. Congratulations.

Z.

7FN - I have finally managed to get hold of these amazing transfers and am once again a 10 year old boy :-)

I had to become a member of that secret organisation to get them but it was worth it.

I would be really grateful if you would keep me informed on the progress of your new transfers. If they manage to top the current set, then you really do have the magic touch.

Please don't be dis-heartened by the lack of feedback, it is sadly just the way of the web.

7FN -

Hope you're doing alright. Last wk I finally managed to pick up a copy of the ROTJ LP, and then began wondering if you ever got around to doing the transfer. Doesn't seem like, but does it look like something you'll turn to anytime soon? 

Either way - thanks again for sharing the SW and Empire transfers, they're real gems!

Yes, but 7FN asked for them to be removed.

I see...

Anywhere else beside there? I never got this usenet thing rigthly...

I found "The Empire Strikes Back" at a certain Russian tracker site...  Haven't listened to it yet, but it seems legitimate as the person who posted it referenced this site, thanking the person originally responsible.  

Empire was the only one at that site.  Also, as a bonus, I found a 24 bit/48k rip of the "Raiders of the Lost Ark" LP.  :-)

Yes, I have those.

ESB from this russian tracker is "version 1.0" of 7FN vinyl transfer. The ones mentioned here are much improved, apparently.

I tried to toy with this Usenet thing, and made a free account on XS Usenet server (apparently, the best free one around). Once I get the NZB, it says the files are missing...

Could it be that the free server has something to do with this?

Is it still possible to hear these?
I have them on vinyl from when I was a kid.
I wanted to add them to my iPod for my boys when we take car trips.
I also have rebel mission to ord mantel.

They’re on the spleen as well as a few other private trackers.
