Good Morning Mr. Blues (2017)

Spann, Jones, Johnson, Williamson

Mastering Engineer: 2xHD Mastering by René Laflamme
Mastering Room:

For the recordings on this album, the original ¼”
15 ips CCIR master tapes were played on a Nagra-T tape recorder,
modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired from the
playback head directly to a Telefunken EF806 tube, using OCC
silver cable. The Nagra T, with its four direct drive motors, two
pinch rollers and a tape tension head, has one of the best transports
ever made. A custom-built carbon fiber head block and a
head damping electronic system permit 2xHD FUSION to obtain a
better resolution and 3D imaging.
The resulting signal is then transformed into high resolution formats
by recording it in DSD11.2kHz using a Merging Technologies’
Horus A to D converter

Producer: Originally produced by Karl Emil Knudsen
Recording location: Recorded October 16, 1962 in Copenhagen, Denmark
Recording Software: Merging
Recording Type & Bit Rate: DSD256

This album was recorded to Analog tape. It was then transferred to the DSD bit rate indicated above.
