The cost of equipment/internet always rises (ie: a Decca Gold cartridge is now £847..internet +15%/yr - and new/obsolete PU/stylus's have become very rare).
Relying on 'some' Contributions to offset this/my time spent (Many Hours) is inappropriate (eg: 1 Contributor from Japan - but 1M+ page views..) so any new files will be on https://pristineaudiophile.blogspot.com
IF YOU'VE ENJOYED ANY (OR VERY MANY) OF THESE UNMOLESTED LP TRANSFERS THEN A MODEST CONTRIBUTION WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH APPRECIATED..... https://www.paypal.me

PYE / Mercury MRL 2002 1956 pressing - MG-50045 'YMG' matrices. Recorded: 20 November 1954.
(The end of 'Feste Romane' has tape (etc) congestion: have also slightly increased the volume)
MMA 11095 - the 1960 EMI release (used by 'Mr Pristine') - has inherently quieter vinyl - but that Mercury transfer has far less dynamic-range.
Sleeve-note >>> 'Mr Pristine's' EMI transfer: 'sample mp3' (PASC194) - begins @ 5:27 on the Chiesa file >>>
