Hugh Mundell - Time & Place

Produced by: Hugh Mundell; arrangements by Augustus Pablo

Label: Mun Rock Records MMLP001 (Mundell's label, set up in England)

Released: 1980

*********************************************************************

In my mind Mundell's best album, he's grown up a little after the
"youth" album "Africa Must Be Free" and immensenly better than the
monotonous "Mundell" he later cut with the big dancehall producer
for the big record company. This album, backed by some incarnation
of Rockers All Stars suits Mundell much better than did the Radics!

Looking for a suitable album to upgrade, I came across the meagre
128 Kb rip made of the JetStar reissue CD. Picking the title track
to investigate, another vinyl-to-cd release was discovered although
the record used is in good condition (only a small crackle reveals
what business JetStar is into).

Also, this turned out to be an album of so modest recording quality
that even that low bitrate gave a very satisfactory result. If you
already have that rip, you may as well stick with it, even though my
new rip, made from a mint vinyl copy, sounds slightly better. (I only
checked against the old rip's opening track, there are some even
muddier recordings here where the differences may too small to hear).

The major point may be the original cover scans, reproducing the
vinyl sleeve in full. JetStar did as so many other companies: cut out
a small piece from the original as vinyl covers often lose their
impact when reduced to cd size. (This is the original cover art; the
second pressing came with a re-designed, more colourful sleeve. Back
cover scanned in full 300 dpi because the text is almost impossible
to read otherwise - maybe a hint as to why the re-design!)


Enjoy!

I-Self


Note. "Great Tribulation" was originally a 1978 single and "Feeling
Alright Girl" a 1979 single but titled "Feeling Alright".


*********************************************************************

Tech stuff:

This mint LP (only a handful of clicks needed removal) was recorded
in 24 bit/88.2 kHz and downsampled to 44.1 kHz after restoration but
before setting final output volume. (Decreasing from 88.2 to 44.1 is
a much simpler - and faster - task for the CPU than coming from 96
kHz, and I cannot hear any difference at all.)

Being a mono album but with some tracks having slightly different tonal
balances between the channels, these were merged using the Waves S-1
Stereo Shuffler (which can be put to unexpected uses if you play
creatively with it). Encoded as single channel mp3s at 160 Kb/s,
equalling a 320 Kb/s stereo file in terms of available resolution.

All tracks normalized as one set and limited by just 1 dB (as a
symbolic gesture to bring the dynamic vinyl media just a little closer
to modern and more heavily compressed CDs...)
