Uncharted Waters Volume 17

Yes, this one took a month to make. But I promise you will like it. If you've been turned off by some of the later '70s stuff I've been including lately, fear not - this edition has quite a bit of classic '60s psych-pop.  One other reason you may love this particular issue is that the bitrate for each song is now in better quality. I had had enough of the compromise in quality caused by exporting MP3s to 128kbps, so I bumped it up to 192kbps. Still not exactly FLAC quality, but the tracks do sound noticeable better now.

I've noticed that the past few volumes have been getting lower view counts. Hopefully it is because folks are out and about (and record digging!) during the summer, rather than browsing while cooped up in the house for the wintertime. Thanks again to all the loyal supporters, I appreciate your business!

  1. Hey Peter, nice job again, one thing...The song by Hot Ice skips badly, is that an mp3 conversion problem or is it the Record?...Thanks, Skip (I posted this a minute a go, but don't think it went through)

    1. Hi Skip, that appears to be a problem with the file. I will try reuploading the file with an updated version of the Hot Ice song. Thanks for letting me know.
