Vinyl transfer & Restoration / Torrent Produced by Prof. Stoned

Notes by prof.

Transferred from an unplayed (I unsealed it myself) Canadian pressing
w/ US matrix/stampers.
I took great care in manually removing the little surface noise that was
in the 24/96 recording.
I took the left channel of the mono tracks and copied it to the right,
to reduce the total data after being converted to flac.

This collection has quite a few tracks / unique mixes that have
never before or after have been released again.
In contradiction to the CD, the LP version of ‘Two’s Missing’ was
entirely mastered by Steve Hoffman, and sounds much
more hi-fi than the CD.
Therefore, this transfer is a must for any selfrespecting Who fan.

N’joy it.

———————————————————————————————————————–
Interview w/ Steve Hoffman regarding the Who’s Missing & Two’s missing collections.
Questions were asked by lukpac.

Question:
Could you give us some insight in how you got involved with this project?
Was it your idea? MCA’s? Pete’s? What hoops did you have to go through?

SH:
It was my idea, having unearthed some Who things that were never
released in the USA, I thought it would be fun to let American Who fans
get a listen. MCA said ok, but they also said that The Who would never
approve it, so I cabled Pete T. in London via his manager, and he said ok too.
Very easy, actually!

Question:
Why did you use the mono mix of I’m A Boy instead of the stereo mix?
Also, why does that mono mix sound so terrible? The stereo is a lot clearer…

SH:
“I’m A Boy”, mono mix. I have no idea why the mono mix was used.
If there was a stereo mix, what was it on back then?
Anything that was released in America? Nothing that I had access to.

Question:
Do you know anything about those stereo Shel Talmy tracks?
Where they came from?
Did you get any other tapes from those sessions that you didn’t use?

SH:
The stereo Who tracks came from I.B.C., mixed to stereo back when
they were recorded. Never used in USA, so I used them. All there was.
Of course, these were mixed by someone other than Talmy at IBC,
since he doesn’t recall that these exist.

Question:
Why didn’t you include all of the Ready Steady Who EP?
You’ve got a few of the songs there, but not all of them.

SH:
I didn’t know what “Ready, Steady Who” was back then.
I just knew what MCA had in the way of Who tapes.
If I had to rely on Polydor and Pete Townshend for any but a few of the tapes,
the project would never have happened, or it would have been taken out
of my hands. It had to be a “local” thing.

Question:
Why is the mastering on the CD version of “Two’s Missing” so thin?

SH:
Well, whoever mastered it from my original tape, didn’t like the “breath of life”
way I did it and wanted it to have that Rhino-like thinness,
so they just shaved off the analog warmth and mastered it that way.
A shame, really.

Question:
So, were there plans for a third album before you left MCA?
How did those live (SF 1971) tracks come about?
That version of Bargain is great. A shame they edited it down for the box set.

SH:
Believe it or not, I have forgotten where I found that live 1971 concert. Sorry.
There was a volume III in the works, but no one seemed interested in it
at the company but me. Oh well…
