The Brown Dots have long deserved a reasonably decent CD of their songs. The problem is the very poor quality shellac that was used for the Manor records.
The tracks used for this CD were newly generated directly from the 78-rpm records. All of these records visually appear to be rated E (Excellent) or better, but their actual sound is a different story.
Dave Saviet has restored them to the best sound possible. However, on most tracks there will be some amount of surface noise.
Item Number TP160:
All of the tracks on this CD have been mastered using 44.1 kHz-16 bit WAV files. All selections were recorded directly from the original 78-rpm records specifically for this CD.
Be advised that Manor Records used the worst available recycled shellac with abundent amounts of added abrasive filler materials. Audio restoration is by Dave Saviet to produce the best possible sound quality. Audio samples (in both RealPlayer and Windows Media Player compressed formats) are provided below.
There are twenty-seven tracks of vocal group harmony from 1945 to 1949 totaling seventy-five minutes. See the track listing below for more information.
The CD is labeled and comes in a slim jewel case. It includes a color booklet with selected photos, clipping images and label scans, as well as the track listing.
