    What you are about to hear started with a 33 1/3 RPM vinyl record that is 34 years old. I don't often make digital audio off records, because it's tedious and very difficult to get excellent technical quality from these.

    With a pool of denatured alcohol kept on it, (old trick) and a excellent turntable... I recorded this into my computer. Then the work began...

    I decompiled the file then went through cleaning up all the pops, rumble, hiss, getting all the noise and unwanted elements out. (Tedious and took hours). Re-arranged it just a little for dramatic effect... Then gave it a Dolby Digital 5.1 encoded channel with effects that's just killer, did a soft compression and Dolby Noise Reduction, got it all balanced out and looking good on the meters and testers and sounding good.... Then turned it into a 256kb/s mp3 file for your iPods and other digital audio devices.

    This was alot of damn work for a song no one's heard yet...

    I give you C.W. McCall, from his Black Bear Road album.... Green River. Click below to stream or download, and enjoy.

    I've done... Hundreds. This was by request, a challenge accepted. But I had this album too, when I was a kid.

    Double M, your audio abilities never ceases to amaze me. You have quite a talent. Just listening to it makes me want to run out and find myself a "convoy"...

    Ha! Thanks!

    I did "Convoy" earlier this year.... Had the benefit of session audio files sent by Chip Davis... And used my MIDI and Synth to add more goodies.... Echo effects at the beginning were inspired by actual events... C.W. McCall concert at our regional fair, he had echo problems due to his CB radio he uses live, really made the beginning pop. The sound of the 18 wheeler starting up and driving off at the beginning as well? Lifted from the opening of the "Smokey and the Bandit" movie!

    No video on this yet, but here's the mp3 audio file. Let them fuckers roll, 10-4!

    We have several parody song videos. They're all still on KK's YouTube page.

    I've done several more than that, we just haven't commissioned any vids for them yet. KK's more now into the RPG modeling stuff. Glad you like the work!
