Just heard the album and bonus tracks and you really did a great job with some of them, some did sound alright before like the "Head Doctor" original version. Would love to see you remaster some tracks off Snoop's "Lost Sessions Vol. 1" - really was dissapointed with the work WA did there.

Hey mate great job appreciate the effort and that was just the samples I've listened to

Would love to hear the full album. Would be great if it could be done on some of the other WA releases that weren't up to par.

Thanks in advance

I just heard this in my car and I had to come back on here and thank you man!  I didnt think it was going to sound THAT good, I feel like I'm listening to the retail version from death row IN 1996.  It really shines on a good system, I couldnt even listen to the WA version as I hate listening to good music in poor quality -- it drives me nuts.  This music deserves to be heard like this, I just went from avoiding this LP to playing it non-stop.  so seriously, thanks for all your hard work as it is much appreciated.  I wish i had the software and knowhow to do it myself frankly.

any chance we get "out the moon remix" and maybe "Mizery" as a bonus?   Mizery is my favorite track I've heard in ages, would love to hear it touched up a little if its even possble...

Hey everyone,

Thanks for the feedback!! Iím glad everyoneís enjoyed it, I was happy to do it. Iíll make sure someone at WIDEawake sees this thread because they really should. As an administrator and/or director of a company how you could possibly not take seriously comments like ďI didnít buy this because I knew the quality was badÖ but yours sounds so good, Iíd rather hear yours insteadĒ etc. I canít imagine how much money those guys are losing. Consumer confidence is in the shitter and we have to resort to remastering their releases ourselves to make them listenable. Yikes.

As far as the Daz remix, I left it off because I was running short on space keeping it under 120min (I think the album clocks in at 1hr 17min currently) and I liked the flow of the album the way it is currentlyówhich is more true to the original track list. Also, I didnít want to have it be exactly the same as the WIDEawake version (not trying to get into any trouble with them).  I did play around with it though, I have some presets on it so I can upload it soon if people want. Iíll be away for the next week but when I get back Iíll put it up here.

I also got a few requests for the Danny Boy and a couple other songs. I did play with the Danny Boy stuff and, wowÖ WIDEawake really threw another brick there, huh?! I mean, honestly I didnít even know they put that album out, lol. And itís all DJ Quik production?! God, it sounds fucking awful (sound quality wise). If I was Quik I would sue;  thatís damn near slander!  Itís a real shame that album has some potential. The two songs I took a look at are ďThink Itís About TimeĒ and ďBlow Your MindĒ (?) From some of the preliminary tweaking I did those can definitely sound better. If anyone can send me a legit wav rip of those two songs and maybe another good one off the album that would great. Iíll try to get one of those up asap.

Thanks again guys!!

hell man, you should try to get in contact with someone at WA yourself.  I mean, you did all of this for free, and it is obvious you are a big fan of the music.  Maybe they would be impressed with your work and could work something out with you to help them out in the future.

My guess is, they already spent so much money buying Death Row, and now they realize that it is incredibly hard to sell this music and make money.  I'm sure they are trying to keep expenses as low as possible, and so I think they won't hire anyone, or even put effort into mixing/mastering these albums.  But maybe if they actually heard the difference you made, and you were not trying to charge them an arm and  a leg to do work...maybe they might hire you.  Hell, maybe you would work for free as an intern.

I wish I could too, Iíve tried. WIDEawake actually mastered that release (by Brian Gardner no less) so nothing can be done.

All the songs were sent over to Brian in the same condition we got the LBC Crew album (see aforementioned massive low end,  chunky mids, flat highs), the music was essentially fried by the compression they applied at Bernie Gardner Mastering. Think of it like Baking a cake, once you throw it in the oven you canít go back and tweak the ingredientsóits cookedÖ literally. WIDEawake sent them rough mixes and demosÖ another epic fail.  

It was actually the outcry from fans that made WIDEawake (Lara Lavi) master it. Howís that for irony? We demand they master these records, they do, and then theyíre worse than they were before! Öalas, we canít win.

That album suffered from mixing issues. None of those songs were professionally mixed. In the credits they mention some no-name idiot mixing engineer who did the album. Whoever that guy isóif heís even realóshould be slappedÖ the guy has no business mixing records. Doggystyle has some of the worst mixing Iíve ever heard, bar-none. Itís so amateurish I canít even listen to it. Itís unlistenable. As far as Iím concerned that song is still unreleased.

Thanks man. I'll definitely take a look. Some of those recent 2pac leaks sounded pretty good. There were also a few tracks of that All Eyez on Me label demo that were at least decently mixed and could definitely sound a lot better.

Iíd like to take a crack at that Makaveli demo thatís floating around (apparently there are two versions of it). I donít know because Iím not in the loop with music stuff like that. From the sounds of it, a lot of people have it. I donít know what condition itís in, but Iím sure I could make it sound a lot better.

I'm curious about your potential work on Tupac first 2 albums, what about those?
