I really think this is one of Alan Hawkshaw's best. I love this album, so I thought i'd do a nice fresh 48/24bit Rip, clean it all up. Scan the Covers etc..

Hope you enjoy.

Great work. Thank you niknak.
Yes, it's a great album. BRI is such a great series, BRI 10 "Fantasia" is an absolute masterpiece.
Along with K, M and N, my favorite in the Bruton catalog.

     Nice job, niknak! Sound beautiful and the images are great too. Do you have a scanner large enough to fit an LP? Thanks for sharing.

Thanks everyone. 

This vinyl was a swine to fix up BTW, probably one of the worst technically I've had the pleasure of, it had some seriously impacted crud that made the right channel sound distorted. Took 3 bouts of PVA cleaning each side to clean it up enough to be able to fix fully in RX6. I noticed the same distortion in exactly the same places on the previous rip that was available (don't know who to credit that rip to - apologies) as well so I'm pointing the finger at the pressing plant.

The scanner is just an A4 canonscan 5600f but I've modified it so I can completely remove the lid. I scanned each side in 4 quadrants and used photoshop's photomerge to stitch them. the I just set black and white points and did a bit of tidy up. The orange is incorrect because the album uses a more fluorescent colour that's out of the rgb colour range.
