From listening to these samples, I'm very happy Doug was the go-to guy. Typical Doug work -- he
didn't go nuts with "noise reduction" and kept all the music there. Doug is very rare among
restorers of grooved media who do work for commercial clients. There's an epidemic of over-use of
digital noise-reduction, where it becomes music-elimination for the sake of a quiet background.
Will this material ever be widely available to the public?
