                                 Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
One of Jackson's earlier releases here.  He's kinda disappeared off the 
binaries because of time cancer on the servers, so I'll try to put a few more 
of his up.  Here's another one in glorious monophonic.
  
This originated from a lossless audio stream rip from a Tidal music service 
subscription of mine.  Rip was done using an Asus Xonar DG sound card.  Wave 
editor was Cool Edit Pro using 48k/floating 32 bit settings.  It was then 
converted down to 24 bit using DbPowerAmp, then converted to flac files. The 
only changes done were the total silencing of any random system noise between 
tracks. (For those of you in the .mp3 binaries, I compressed it further to 320 
kb/s with DbPowerAmp using Lame encoder.)  Track timings will approximate that 
of the original release but are by no means exact to the second.  

Because of the lack of .log and .cue files it probably won't be something a 
hard core collector wants.  But it's plenty good enough for the average 
listener. In terms of sound quality, I see no reason why it should be 
distinguishable from your garden variety CD.  Tracks are tagged and I put some 
info in the comments section about the source and .wav gathering, just to keep 
the digital gene pool organized. There's plenty of .par files here to hopefully 
keep it alive awhile in the lossless group. If possible I'll try to find some 
artwork off the web to include with it.  Enjoy it if you grab it - MM
