Fascinating- thanks! My first step will be checking out the WavePad software. I've been using only Fission:

https://rogueamoeba.com/fission/

Fission is very rudimentary, except for the ability to make MP3 edits without generation loss. The simplicity also is helpful in avoiding getting caught up too much in audio editing minutiae. ;)  But I need something more powerful, and WavePad looks like a good mix.

I have no experience with other editing software,
but I'm very pleased with WavePad. It has so many other useful functions too,
"fading" etc. Simple editing tool.

Yes, I was thinking of doing a "best of Stoneham" comp, but never got round to it (yet).
Anyway, here is "This is Harry Stoneham". Promo for Lowrey organs. It has a couple of good uptempo nuggets. It also has some moog-like sounds. But I'm sure I can live without his version of "Feelings"! Pictures of the sleeve are included in the folder.

Harold Smart also uses moog on this one:

It has interesting explanations on the back sleeve.

And here are the rest of the LPs from my archive for this organ orgy:
hxxps://mega.nz/folder/fSRiGBaY#ujbeuHb9U6T1LI3D3v2uPA
The folder contains these:
https://www.discogs.com/Brian-Dee-Hammond-Excitement/release/2829744
https://www.discogs.com/Santi-Latora-Emotion/release/2079328
https://www.discogs.com/Mike-Timoney-The-Astounding-Sound-Of-The-Cordovox/release/1870817

https://www.discogs.com/Andr%C3%A9-Brasseur-The-Golden-Organ-Of/release/2615411

Links expire after 6 days.

I may have shared the John Brown Junior albums here previously, I don't remember.
But these are new rips and upgrades anyway.
John Brown Junior was of course none other than Roy Budd.

I'm interested in more albums by Santi Latora, btw.

Those were about all the organ LPs I have.
Not to forget this I shared earlier:

I did enjoy Santi Latora/Blue Flame. According to Wiki/translated, "In 2000, IRMA published a series of lounge compilations entitled Mo'plen, including many of Santi Latora's songs." Pretty sure I have a couple of their Mo'plen series. I definitely have several IRMA releases. Very interesting label. That's back from a time 10+ years ago when I didn't even know what library music was, but interestingly, it turns out that actually I was already enjoying LM & related genres.

…I'm very pleased with WavePad.

Did you get the one w/VST support? I'm thinking mainly in terms of 3rd-party plug-ins that might be useful for click/pop/noise reduction.

No need for promises like that!  ;)

Speaking of Roy Budd. I think most Budd shares are still alive at this old thread => https://librarymusicthemes.net/index.php?topic=2219.0

I don't know anything about that.

I think it's the same release:
Discogs info is wrong, the cover (rear) regards track B6 as one song, a medley of "June In January" & "Just One More Chance."
