A strange noise is briefly audible at 1.4 seconds, and it's on both my vinyl copies of this album.
if it was a defect i think it seems weird it'd be in the same place on two different copies of the record.
I'm still undecided, but I'm leaning toward removing it - especially since Raiden did nice job with it (thanks!).There's no way to know for sure, but I'm thinking it's probably a defect.
Can't say I recognize the artist, who is it? If I were you, I would be tempted to email the creator, the band or the label. I 'speak' with artists quite often via email; in this day and age of electronic communications, they’re not nearly so 'distant' as one might think.
How does this sound? http://www.giantpygmy.net/stuff/end_repaired.flacC.
This time I'm more convinced that it's a defect. The flaw can be heard at 1.7 seconds.
I'm glad you like it. It sounded okay to me too. But curiosity killed the cat; I'm concerned that if I tell you how I did it you may not listen to it again with the same enjoyment. But if, after that mysterious warning, you are still curious, I'll gladly explain. C.
