    Richie this one sounds really bad after unpacking this end. Can you check the file is okay with you because it is distorting on the 2 versions of Peek-A-Boo for me…

    • djrichiep says:

      It may be surface noise on the record. I don’t remember it sounding bad when I was preparing it. I just opened it in Cool Edit and the db levels are within range. Nothing overdriven or clipping. I’m not where I can listen to it right now but, like I said, I don’t remember it being distorted. Sorry.

      Anyone else notice this?

      • Walter says:

        Yes, it is distorted but I think is stylus-related. The synth ending the “Devo Dub” shows it clearly.
