I looked at the website, but it's kindof the whole point. I mean, how the Haggis can I upload anything to YOutube if I don't have an image to go along with it, it just doesn't make sense because I can't fckng see! That's where Bri would come in...
Anyway, I haven't uploaded to the server yet, but I'll do that immediately and send out the link once it's uploaded. Just confirm with your Email address and you should be all set.

Procrastinating is like smoking. Once you start, it's very difficult to stop. (I don't smoke, but I often procrastinated in school and it was very hard to stop).

Alrot (Southern accent) here's the download link for both Cock O' the North and the Heilan' Laddie set by D. A. Smith, remastered from Tony Langford's volume 1 cd (1898-1920). These are the last two tracks of the CD. Note that this is a Zip file, so you'll need to unzip it to listen to the recordings.

Maybe compare these recordings to the ones on Youtube that PerfDavid uploaded playing on his Victrola, you'll notice a huge difference in tonal quality.
Note: All warping, slides, and other undesirable pitch changes have been corrected by me, not to mention equalization to make the recordings as smooth as possible. I still haven't found a way to remedy the crackling or debris noise; even though there is software to correct this, it doesn't work with a screen reader!

Michael

PS. I have remastered literally all of the other records in Tony's collection like this, so if you're interested to hear a record that would have been, for example, otherwise suffered from terrible warping, just let me know. Warping is where the pitch bends up and down due to the RPM, making the piper appear to be an unsteady blower.

You don't have to upload an image, the site can create one from text for you.

Yeah Calum, you're right. So I don't need Bri anymore! (smile).
It's cool because, uploading to Youtube is a breeze really. I don't have to worry anymore about relying on someone to do it for me... thanks to TunesToTube!
The two videos have been uploaded, so go ahead and check them out, comment if you'd like... Maybe type in "Pipe Major David Arthur Smith" for a start.

I'm wondering the exact same thing.
Anyone looked at the Youtubes yet?

Guess what, today is the 100th anniversary of the two D. A. Smith recordings!!!!! I really can't believe it!
However, what I'm surprised about is that nobody commented on them directly from Youtube... So, to spread the word I'd like to share the links. Here we go!
