                                 Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Did a very quick search on the group for this one and didn't find it.  Here's 
a copy from a lossless webstream source if anyone is interested.  The stream 
was ran through an Asus Xonar DG soundcard using Cool Edit Pro as the wave 
editor.  (48kbs, 16 bit settings.)  I slighty edited the gaps between each 
track of the webstream and totally silenced background noise in the gaps.  No 
other alterations were done.  Because of this being a webstream rip, no .cue or 
.log files are available. 

Since this is a lossless group I'm sure most will be concerned with the sound 
quality.  I've heard of people using a program that can verify if a file is 
indeed lossless or not, although I've never done it myself.   If the files 
don't make the grade I guess I'm being ripped off by the service I use.  But 
according to what Tidal claims (and what's being charged to me) they are 
supposed to be CD quality streams.  Just trying to give full disclosure here. 
The binary groups have given me an unbelievable amount of releases over the 
years and I thought this could be a way to give something back. 

It was suggested earlier in the group to simplifiy things a bit and just 
download the files off the streaming service straight to the hard drive.  To be 
honest I'm not quite sure how to go about doing that.  Don't see a method to 
perform such a thing on their web app, at least.  Anyway, it probably wouldn't 
be in their best interests to give it away, so I'm not looking for that option 
anytime soon.  For now, the only way I know to obtain a copy on my drive is to 
rip the tracks with the wave editor.  Time consuming, yes, but it's the dead of 
winter and it beats watching vapid social media on the smart phone screen. 

As the title suggests, this latter 60's release of Shanks gives a nod to the 
Fab Four.  Some of the jazz reworkings here seem to pander a bit and come 
across as hip elevator music.  But that's just me.   Maybe you like a little 
kitsch with your crackers.  Despite that, this may be a release you haven't 
stumbled across before.  Tracks are tagged.  Historical info below is from 
Wikipedia.  Track timings may be slighty off what's listed due to my minor 
edits, but they'll be reasonably close. 

p.s. - Please take no offense if don't immediately reply to re:'s in the group. 
 Generally I don't look at the groups that closely unless I'm really on a 
download feeding frenzy.  I try to give the releases plenty of .par headroom 
just in case.  Thanks for your understanding and enjoy the vintage Bud if you 
grab it. - mm
