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...)

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

Tech stuff:

The LP was recorded in 24 bit/88.2 kHz and downsampled to 44.1 kHz
after fixes.

A good Virgin 70s pressing, by monitoring the recording in phones,
only 10 very small clicks and 2 somewhat louder ones were detected.
These were manually removed so that no further de-clicking was needed.

Album normalized as a whole but not limited, probably making this
sound a whole lot quieter than the reissue cd. But use the volume and
be rewarded by getting the superior dynamic range of vinyl! (Stupid,
isn't it - technically the CD format have a superior dynamic range
but then the industry settles for heavy limiting and thus offsets the
only aspect where CDs had the upper hand...)

Encoded as VBR files at 224 Kb/s and extending to 320 when needed.
Seemingly consisting of two distinct sessions, some tracks on the LP
share a common dull sound while another batch is quite crisp.
The chosen bitrate should do the job just fine in both cases.

Dub Specialist (aka Sylvan Morris) - Dub Store Special

Producer: Clement 'Coxsone' Dodd

Label: Studio One

Released: circa 1976

Source: cassette tape made from JA mint vinyl (that is,
"mint" according to the Studio One standards...)

Encoder: Lame 3.92 - matching the original Fraunhofer codec
in razor sharp accuracy, and is moreover FAST and FREE

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


Ok, so I already had all tracks except three on an old tape
but yet downloaded the entire album from the FTP to get the
missing dubs (who knows, maybe a superior vinyl copy was
awaiting me...). With an average 9 dB below normalization,
however, it could hardly be said to be an optimal vinyl rip.
And since I taped my copy of the record when new, the tape
still possessed that pristine Studio One sound: wildly
crackling and filled with sharp clicks but of course also
all the original detail in the recording. That's why I
provide a new copy sounding very much better and also
playing at an adequate listening level.

Having encoded this mono record using single channel mp3s
at 160 Kb/s also means that you get much higher resolution
than with the old rip. (The standard stereo format 192
divided by two channels means the absolute resolution is
only 96 Kb and you threfore download more bytes and still
get less musical detail. The single channel format is sadly
overlooked when it comes to improving the listening quality
of mono recordings without having to up/download more in
terms of bytes.)

I took the three missing tracks from the 192 Kb rip and did
everything possible to clean up their sound. There should
not be too hard to tell the difference between tracks 2, 10
and 12 and the rest, taken from that 20+ year old cassette
tape. But given the circumstances this still is a set worth
downloading.

The dubs themselves are not spectacularly dramatic, but the
riddims are so classy! And those being rather instrumentals
than dubs are great and immortal music.

(See release notes to "Simeons", "Rita Marley/Who Knows It",
"Ossie & The Revolutionaries" and a few other "tape-to-mp3"
folders for details on the equipment used to capture this LP
back at the beginning of time.)


Enjoy!

PS. I must for a second time confess having borrowed a
cover thumbnail scan from his excellent Studio One site.
Thank you. The site is found at http://koti.mbnet.fi/maple/
