sound distortion on Clarence Williams CDs by Timeless
- --- In RedHotJazz@yahoogroups.com, "aclassicjazzfan"
> I don't yet have vol. 2 in the Clarence William series (Timeless57). Can anyone report on its sound quality? I do have most of the
Timeless volumes just before 55 and just after 56 and they all sound
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.
