FWV008: Ta Mara & The Seen
Go out and look up the name Margaret Cox and read up on her career, she has been successfully working in the music biz for quite some time. Anyway, Ms. Cox was known as Ta Mara in this Jesse Johnson produced band. Included here is the complete self-titled first album by the band along with some b-sides and 12″ single cuts from the first album and the follow up, Blueberry Gossip, all from my vinyl collection…
How I do it: Technics SL-1200MK2 turntable w/Audio Technica AT440MLa phono cartridge via analog connection to a Yamaha RX-Z1 A/V Receiver which goes analog to a Sony PCM-R300 DAT deck. The DAT deck does the analog to digital conversion and the audio signal is then sent digitally through a Turtle Beach Catalina sound card and recorded via Cool Edit Pro as a wav file on my computer. The wav file is then processed with ClickRepair, trimmed/edited in Cool Edit Pro and converted to FLAC. All FLAC files have been verified with Trader’s Little Helper. I guess the simplified lineage would be: Vinyl>WAV>FLAC
