Digitisation

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted the news posted on Hidden Masters recently, but for those who haven't, here's the latest excellent news on the 'Parabolically Yours' project:



The Distractions – digitisation now completed



Well… we finally did it! Digitisation of all-found is now complete.

Naturally we’ve been working with the expected 1/4″ and 2″ analog reels but also a bunch of cassettes which, quite honestly, were so layered in dust – having lain in un-looked-at boxes for decades – they had to be wiped clean so that the track-listings could be read.

And, as much as we didn’t want to resort to this, we’ve also worked off pristine vinyl since three or four tracks have ceased to survive in any other format – quite where those particular masters are is anybody’s guess… sadly, most probably long-since destroyed.

Now… the song selection process is underway and it is hoped that we’ll be able to announce the finalised track-listing to Parabolically Yours by the end of February.
