                                 Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This originated from a lossless CD quality audio stream 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 
resampled down to 24 bit so the FLAC converter would accept the files.  It was 
first converted to FLAC files with dBPoweramp and then to 320kbs .mp3 files.  
The only changes done were the total silencing of any random system noise 
between tracks.  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 rip.  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.  If possible I'll try to find some 
artwork off the web to include with it. 

This is one of those releases where the tracks blend together at times without 
any gaps.  Side Two is basically a suite of sorts, and I chose to leave it in 
tact and not hack it up into a bunch of separate .mp3 files.  It'll sound more 
as intended and much more pleasing if you plan to sit down and listen to it all 
the way through.  See the LP side 2 label and it'll describe what's what here.  
Enjoy it - MM
