I finally got a turntable hooked up to the computer and I've gradually been transferring my vinyl. It's so easy! After some messing around with Audacity, I decided to leave most of the cracks and pops alone. Every time I zoom in on a track and get rid of them, I can notice a drop. Does anybody have any Audacity tips?
The first LPs I just had to transfer was my Marvelettes LPs, mainly their last LP. I wasn't too into it when I bought a few years ago because it so mellow, but it's been growing on me, especially this track. The album was actually suppose to be a solo album for Wanda, but Motown didn't think a Wanda solo album would sell. So, they named it The Return of the Marvelettes, and it still didn't sell well. Wanda is the only actual Marvelette on the album (the Motown house backing vocal group The Andantes back Wanda up.) Look at the cover and the mysterious, faceless gals next to Wanda. I call it yet another Motown shenanigan, but regardless, it's a pretty rad cover.
What a usful product! You can actually protect yourself during an attack of weapons of mass destruction and cook popcorn at the SAME TIME PEOPLE. This is way more usful Tom Ridge's duct tape and plastic over the windows plan. (discovered at http://www.geekologie.com)
