Moonchild - Winston remasters new label?

Recommended Posts

I posted on some Moonchild threads on Dime my wish that they keep my name off their releases... Hoping whomever is behind Moonchild would see it. That sure worked well :rolleyes:

 

You must have yer suspicions as to who's behind that label, I'd imagine...

Pardon me while I go get this framed and hung on my wall. Your body of work was what originally inspired me to learn how to use sound editing programs and to remaster music. I can remember back in 2013 thinking to myself when I worked on concerts "if I can get it to sound as good as a Winston Remaster then I'll be happy with it!" No joke, in that regard, you're a personal hero of mine. So, long story short, thanks for the compliment!

Congrats, Sue- you just got one hell of an endorsement!

I've never bought a bootleg cd or anything on vinyl. When you buy the digital versions, do they come on a cd in MP3 format? Or are they FLAC files on a data disc? And what's the difference between 'silvers' and 'non silvers'? I'm curious. I'm hoping to have a man-cave finished in a year or two and I'm gonna get my dads old turntable out of his loft. I may start getting some vinyl and digital boots. Preferably vinyl

Cheers

 

^These kinds of questions are what keeps me from thinking about starting a physical format boots hobby. While collecting and playing silvers and vinyl would be a lot of fun, I wouldn't know where to start, and it's not cheap. Too many unknowns and potential to buy crap that is advertised as good boots.

For now my digital collection will suffice until I win the big one, then it's game on!

The Badgeholders is way better than any EVSD release and better than the Scorpio version

Strider Ive been reluctant to buy Scorpio recordings because I see them rarely and dont know much about them. . Do they put out a quality product?

For the record there are three Scorpio labels. The first and most important label was (I believe) American and they were responsible for top notch releases in the early nineties like Studio Daze, Olympic Gold, Jennings Farm Blues, Seattle Supersonic and A Secret History. The 'Millennium' Scorpio, Strider is referring to, is Japan based and they released pretty good material. The infamous Scorpio label with the bad name is a copy cat label from Europe. They mainly focus on re-issues of soundboard material from Empress Valley and they are instantly recognizable by their hideous artwork.

Sampled Winston's Listen To This Eddie version... Impressive with a three dimensional quality to it with excellent balance and separation. You feel like you are there with the band dead center in the mix. I haven't listened to New Orleans 1973 (The Drag Queen) in a long time. Seamless integration of the audience tape with the soundboard. Overall clean sounding though the board mix sounds thin and a bit garbled.

Sorry Bozoso73, I have been on a road trip for the past week with unreliable wifi and pretty much away from this forum. But as you can see, duckman answered even better than I could have.

Good job, duckman. I knew there were two Scorpios but had no idea about a third more recent one doing EVSD knockoffs. I'll be wary of those if I see them at the swaps.

'Eat a Peach' is doing a nice job, I think. I have mixed feelings about the Moonchild label. They are cashing in on Winstons remastering talents...but on the other hand at ten bucks a piece, I could not resist ordering Badgeholders (excellent), Get Back to L.A 2 (excellent) and Blueberry Hill (very good). The Copenhagen 79 warmups also look very tempting. For the rest I must say I'd rather wait for Brannon (BootledZ) to review/compare them. Graf Zeppelin, Empress, Scorpio Japan,...sometimes they release pure gold, but often it's garbage.

Thanks for getting back Duckman:) It is not easy to find a EAT A PEACH anywhere. . never on ebay. . The moons are good . . I have BH and LTTE and just received "ACME"3/11/75(Moon) Im putting on here in a bit. . Im with you on the WR thing but the price is right and its helping my silvers collection. . These jokers with the Tarantura and EVSD prices are out of their fkn minds at $100+. . I dont see a lot of Scorpio or Graf at all. . Wendy's come around a bit but the price is usually too high. . I do see old LP boots and I feel sorry for the guys/gals who bought in the 80/90's because it seems you didnt really ever know what you were getting. . What about Boleskine Music?? And the Badgeholders. . did Winston give it some balls? It seems to lack any bottom end (could be my copy)

Listened to the first disc of Badgeholders.... In comparison to Eddie, the sound is more expansive and extending out across the speakers. Both are clean. Excellent overall. For new collectors or those on a tight budget, the Moonchilds are good bang for the buck. At least they use the appropriate year pics for their artwork.

On another note, I picked up The Rolling Stones "KBFH" title. Superb stereo...best release of the 1973 FM broadcast I have on other discs.

Haha. As they are bootleg labels, I don't trust any of them. I haven't since one of my first bootlegs was an album labeled as being recorded at the LA Forum in 1971 but was actually Berkeley '71...the infamous "Going to California" boot.

But I will say that overall, Godfatherecords has given me the highest rate of satisfaction, especially when we factor in the cost/pleasure ratio.

Next would be Eat-a-Peach!

The Genuine Masters DVD-A releases are also high on the satisfaction guaranteed scale.

The above labels all get an A grade from me.

In the B- to B grade level are Wendy, Badgeholders, and the original TMOQ label of the 1970s.

Next comes EVSD and Scorpio.

Boogie Mama, Red Devil, eelgrass, Beezlebub, Power Chord, Totonka, TDOLZ, Tarantura, and other labels are either too substandard to rate or I don't have enough of their titles to objectively rate them.

Just about every Winston is worth having. I have almost all of them that have been shared freely. Even the older ones. And I think he made a matrix or two, which are the only matrixes in my collection. I think its Seattle '73 from the early 2000's that turned out being really good. 9/29/71 Winston Remaster is the SHIT, must have.

Arigatou Osaka...very natural sounding. The fills of the second source in the gaps is very well done. Not as jarring transitions like in Empress Valley's You Were There In Spirits. The latter though is a bit more upfront and brighter. Winston's Remaster is easier on the ears.
