some of my restorations of jazz and swing 78s, 320k mp3sSome remastered jazz records from my collection

Here are a few jazz 78s that I’ve remastered. I’ve used clickrepair and izotope software, then a roll of of 8.5db/10khz in dc8, very little if anything else has been done to these files, I havn’t done any actual noise reduction.

PLEASE NOTE: these are all available from me in flac format, but I have only uploaded mp3s here. If you want flac, email me and ask!
