Default Pocketwatch 2014... Just... Almost Late LOL

Repeat from the collector's thread as I know not everyone goes there...

I swore one day I'd get to it...

1991 unplayed first gen cassette... plus some tender love and kindness and a 1200 dollar cassette deck (well in ah 1992 lol). 15 or so hours work, I think I've mentioned in passing I worked in a studio for a while, but you know no point blowing smoke. Anyway there's a 2011 Flac that isn't awful, so this may rock your boat in comparison, or may not.

Note: you will find these tracks are all a few seconds shorter if you compare them to other sources because they have been properly play trimmed for correct speed (Dave was faster than you thought... now there's a surprise...)

Pocketwatch 2014, mp3 version 320k, 77MB. Free to all forever.

Happy 20th.

Thank you! And I hadn't realized the versions I have heard were all slower that supposed to be. Was that a mistake or did someone just circulate versions dubbed from a slow old tape deck? Funny how this little cassette from Simple Machines has been made into such a big deal simply because it is prime early Dave.

Correction: you guys answered my question already! Duh! I think you guys may have to do a track by track speed correction, if you can figure out the correct speeds at all. Due to the nature of the many sessions recorded on what must have been home studio equipment over three different sessions. Nothing hi-fi or state of the art here.. lol.. but then again that's the charm!
Everytime I listen I'm still impressed at how great the songs are! For early Dave, he just had this great music in him even then, and nice drumming!

Yes that is the plan. I have almost perfect speed corrections for a first track and a last track on a side. From there I will calculate the difference and rate of speed change based on overall side length and track length. It wont ever be perfect but it will at least be scientific enough to stand up until one day maybe any of the other tracks are released in any kind of substantive way.

can't wait to hear your final mix, your previous version of Milk is best I've heard so far.

Anyway... if that's not my orig work on the WT post my apologies... (that's on work disks not to hand so cant do an immediate direct compare)... could be the earlier (considered master version - which is/was also very cool).

NO work on this is ever wasted - it all brings out opinions on input and output...

Anyway... this is my 2015 final (of that source/time)_ I'm still TOTALLY out on a final version - we are simply not there yet. I now have 5 tapes to work through - and that WILL be done this year pre 25th ANN.

Worst case - two versions to play with.

Awesome, we're eternally grateful for your efforts FooZealand! I have saved your 2015 version on my laptop as a backup.
