      fine. At least in the case of Timeless, the problem seems to be
      limited to just a couple of CDs produced within a narrow time frame.

      I've just acquired "Clarence Williams & His Orchestra, vol. 2: 1933-
      1937" (Timeless 57). I regret to report that all cuts on both disks
      in this set have the same sort of sound distortions (short "buzzes"
      or static) as does disk two in volume 1 (disk one sounds fine). This
      seems to confirm Michael's theory that the Timeless CDs from 2001 had
      a production problem. Fortunately, the noise is less intrusive on
      vol. 2 than on vol. 1. In any case, the music is wonderful.
