Thread Name: Restoring Old Recordings
Subject: RE: Restoring Old Recordings
I don't mind popping and hissing on old recordings, usually. Sometimes, the only surviving copy of a recording can be some beat-up old 78. I don't mind it being cleaned up so you can actually make out the music in all the hissing, but I prefer 'authenticity' to 'perfection.' And what if they restore it, and it's NOT the way the original sounded?
