AIRPLAY FOR THE PLANET - Remastered at 96k - now available as a physical CD!

As noted below we released

AIRPLAY FOR THE PLANET - Remastered at 96k

as a digital download at Bandcamp a while back. Since we have been getting so many requests for a physical CD of this remaster and since the 2002 version of the physical album has sold out, we have decided to make the 2017 remaster available as a physical CD at CD Baby.

So, this remaster is derived from a source with more enhancement and with new artwork, and slightly new liner notes.

Here are a few comments from Jay on the various releases:

Please note that all but two tracks were recorded on a modified MCI 24 track analog recorder. I used the analog mix files to start with. The first CD version released in Japan used the analogue mix files and recorded to 44.1k 16 bit digital for CD. The mastering was fair at best. The next release in 2002 used the digital files and I tweaked EQ as to make sound better using the ADAT EQ, which does not allow automating the EQ.

So this remaster is a completely different story and I am getting into more detail on the CD Baby page.

Exquisite remaster at 96k of AIRPLAY FOR THE PLANET!

Available at Bandcamp for download. This digital album includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.Liner notes for download in PDF format at the Sonic Thrust Records page.

My album AIRPLAY FOR THE PLANET has been selling well and we are running out of stock so when almost out of stock, CD BABY requests more. That opened a can of worms since the program Kerstin used for the original artwork is out of date so she needed to start over using a new program. Since she needed to redo the artwork, I thought it would be a good idea to re-master the audio.

This took many weeks, but now I am finally finished with the 96k remaster of the album and we have set up a Bandcamp page for it - Jay Graydon - AIRPLAY FOR THE PLANET - Remastered at 96k
