Sixties Uncovered Volume 1

   Yikes!!! I started this blog hoping to post something at least two or three times a week, but I've been so busy that this thing just fell off my radar. In the meantime, I acquired a turntable which would easily allow me to transfer my 45 collection to my PC, and here's some of the results. I decided to make a right turn from my cassette archives to work on this stuff, and it's taken me a few weeks to get it done properly. For those of you with a USB turntable (which I have), I recommend skipping the USB route and use the line outs with your sound card. The results sound a lot richer, and don't have that "ice pick to the ear" digital quality that quite frankly sounds atrocious. The content here are 45s which I've acquired off of Ebay from the past month or so. Some of it is familiar, and a lot of it is new, even to my seasoned ears. A nice mix of garage, punk, & psych. I'd really like to hear some comments on the quality of this comp. If you really like this, I'll post many more! Enjoy!!!
