Tracklist is not definitive yet

ORDER NOW
Ben Liebrand : "These are the roots of my career in music".

These tracks have determined the path to follow and many of them where revolutionary and truly progressive at the time they where originally released. I have taken the greatest care to come up with the best possible masters, sometimes comparing up to 5 different versions to find out which one sounded the best and most pure. And sometimes even baking the analog master tapes to make them playable again. The heat evaporates the moisture in the coating of the tape. The otherwise moist backing will clog up all parts of the tape recorder the tape touches, leaving a dark glue like substance grinding everything to a halt. After the backing process, the tape becomes playable again and the transfer to digital is performed.

Some tracks feature a combination of vocal and dub version just as I used to perform that combination in a live DJ-set. Such a combination features the best parts from the vocal and dub version, capturing the complete feel of what that track meant to me.

Enjoy!
Ben Liebrand

More info...

So what is missing:

Obviously, Kraftwerk, the absolute fathers of all sequencer based dance music. Unfortunately, there was no way to contact Ralf Hutter (who I once met in a much to noisy club in Germany) other then riding a bike through his hometown and hoping to catch up with him if I saw him by chance. Now living in Canada instead of near the Germand border that seems even more complicated then ever. Nevertheless, great respect to Kraftwerk (and if anybody knows a way to contact them).

Bobby Orlando was missing on part 1, 2 and 3......but.....
I managed to incorporate no less than 5 Bobby Orlando productions on Grand 12 inches part 4

Telex : Moskow Diskow. Was missing from Grand 12 inches 1,
I succeeded in getting it! It is now available on Grand 12 Inches 2 !!!

Harry Thumann : Underwater. Was missing from Grand 12 inches 1
I found Baby Records, and it is now available on Grand 12 Inches 2 !!!

The tracks by Poussez and the Players Association....
Got them and are now available on part 6 in absolute pristine master quality!

Even with part 10 finished, tracks still not available for licensing included : George Duke - Broken Glass and Herb Alpert's 'Rotation' and the track 'Beyond'. Further more, NV - It's All right (I know it's a sub label of Warner, but who was the rights now ? Same goes for the rest of the Sire catalogue ??

Transferring from Vinyl

Only when no master can be found at all (including having contacted the original artists in many occasions) I have to revert to Vinyl, and only do so if a mint copy is at hand. So....

Man am I happy I always spun my records using the Stanton 681 EEE's, instead of abusing them with the surface grating 500AL's.

So... Transfer was done using a Denon 304 Moving coil cartridge, amplified by a Studer Phone Pre-amp to +4dB balanced line signal.
The signal was then fed into the AD converters of a Tascam DA30 and recorded directly to 44.1 kHz 16 bit.
Yes, A higher bit rate is better, but only if it stays at that bit rate. Down-sampling to the CD standard introduces more unwanted side effects than simply recording it at the correct sample and bit rate in the first place.

All clicks where removed by hand. instead of editing them out , which removes short spaces of time, they were removed by means of interpolation, thus keeping the correct timing.

Fade-out's were cleaned up, intros where inspected at sample-zoomed view. Distorted section were repaired by interchanging from identical snippets elsewhere in the song and all was done to ensure that you have the best possible audio experience in lack of the preferred analog tape master.
