                                 Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
One of my favorites of Buddy's, although I only had an Mp3 of it until 
recently.  Here's a lossless version I grabbed off Tidal Music.  Sound quality 
on this one is much better than some of those older releases of his I've been 
upping.  Technological advancements of the period, no doubt, but it also took 
place in an RCA studio setting and that couldn't have hurt.  This is the CD 
version of the release, and for some reason the track order differs a bit from 
the vinyl.  Has an extended 10 minute version of the first track, Space 
Shuttle.  Killer indeed.

This originated from a lossless audio stream rip 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 
converted down to 24 bit using DbPowerAmp, then converted to flac files. The 
only changes done were the total silencing of any random system noise between 
tracks. (For those of you in the .mp3 binaries, I compressed it further to 320 
kb/s with DbPowerAmp using Lame encoder.)  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.  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.  

I generally don't do Re:'s too often because I don't hang around the groups as 
much as when I was a young leech.  This is just my way of paying it forward 
after grabbing stuff off Usenet for quite a few years now. Enjoy the vintage
