Tony Carey's electronic disco
« on: May 19, 2021, 06:05:11 AM »
Tony Carey had 6 experimental albums in a short time 1982-83 - between his Rainbow hard-rock period and his further great pop-rock works (solo and as Planet P Project)

These 6 albums were recorded on X-records label (under Peter Hauke), some were released without Carey's permission.
It's mostly cool electronic instrumental disco

You can get it below.
Explorer and Yellow Power, most famous among others, are my own old rips
The rest are taken from different bootleg CD-Rs

Enjoy, if you like such music!

Another chap I wasn't aware of.
Many thanks vslava, I really like this music.
I really like this era for electronics. 1975-1985 produced so many fantastic gems.
I love to discover such new ones.

The sleeve notes in the Heaven album tells about the background to these releases and how they came to be.

Ali.

This rip of Heaven is a fake. Beware. The others seem to be legit.

It's interesting ... the spectrogram says so

But it's rip from here
https://www.discogs.com/Tony-Carey-Heaven/release/3063549
(Tony Carey self-released CD-R)
the rip has .cue and .log

I found another rip from this CD-R, it has the same sound range

I suppose it is the quality of release, not upconvert.

So the LP rip will be great, but I don't have it (((

Yea, the spectral analysis looks interesting indeed. The high-frequency noise would not have been able to survive lossy data compression (at least not with MP3), but the rest looks just like MP3. I guess that this is the result of putting an MP3 file onto analogue tape and then ripping the tape again. Which is likely what Mr Carey did.

I've stumbled over several official/commercial releases like this lately. Even re-releases on vinyl are apparently sometimes produced from lossy sources.

This phenomenon possibly has to do with the fact that the music of quite a few library records exists only on these records and nowhere else. The original recordings and master tapes have long been destroyed. This music was never meant to be listened to decades later. Still, no excuse for deceiving customers.

I've been stung a few times by expensive vinyl re releases that sound, frankly, atrocious. Nowadays I try to totally avoid them. Just companies trying to make a fast buck riding on the current vinyl revival IMO.
