...one of the Christmas presents I received yesterday was this
(I say that, it may have been a birthday present, I wasn't entirely keeping track).
Anyhew, thanks to a wee bit of ripping of the right tracks (with the exception of two which weren't on there, but one of those two was on another CD*) I've been able to create a near perfect digital recreation of this
. I did
rip copy from vinyl of side 2 earlier in the year, but the results were less than stellar thanks to my copy being, to use a technical phrase, "scratched to buggery and back."
So, I call that "result".
*The missing tracks? Well, one was Dudley Simpson's music from The Mind of Evil, which turns up in renamed form on this album
. Easy. The other? Well, the version of the Doctor Who
theme on BBCRW21 isn't the same as that on BBCWR-AR. And the BBCRW21 version isn't widely available (if at all) except
on BBCRW21. This is thanks to it being (according to Mark Ayres
) a "bad edit" version. So presumably he's "doing a Lucas" and making sure only the correct one is used. Which is a tad annoying, and will (as I'm a bit of a purist) entail a vinyl rip of that track to get the full BBCRW21 listening experience.
Still, could be worse.
