About

Notes:

Vinyl transfer by beatlebren66, from the LP on His Master’s Choice HMC 012.

Declicked, pitch, phase and level corrected at Remasters Workshop April 2011.

This has got to be the quietest vinyl transfer I have ever heard, and for a bootleg vinyl pressing, this was nearly perfect. It won’t be obvious that what you are listening to is a record. Thanks to beatlebren66, we now have a digital rendering of The Beatles Christmas Album from a blue vinyl HMC package. I have no idea what source they used for the flexidiscs, but this is about the best I’ve ever heard them. All extraneous noises were removed, but noise reduction was not necessary.

For this edition, some work was done on a few passages that came in louder than the others, to match them with the levels of the surrounding audio. For instance, “TELL ME, are you enjoying the wine?” which was ramped down in volume by the compressor, is all at the same level as the rest of the piece now.
