FYI -- I have added some more obscure examples -- What about Livingstone, What about the music-doris day version, Kisses of fire and a few others. The processing is all legit, and will probably be on the repository for a few more days. Enjoy -- this is truly very special because of the 100% proper DolbyA-style decoding and some mitigation of the severe wall of sound (which is a bit less applicable nowadays.) Also redid the other examples -- I diddn't 100% like the results, so did some thigns differently, but still the same DolbyA decode.
I spent some time to fully remaster a few ABBA songs. NOTHING in the material didn't come from the original source. It is possible to believe that some of the material was artificially produced --- it might have been artifically produced, but NOT BY ME.
This is original material will a full remaster, and a beautiful sound. I haven't been 100% careful, but in general the results might be surprising. It almost doesn't sound like ABBA -- or, perhaps the best you have ever heard for most of the selections.
The vocals are good -- clear 'S' sounds, the wall of sound is fully utilized, and acutally very listenable.
If someone is interested, I can explain how it was done. I promise no more than 3dB of EQ in any place other than perhaps a rolloff or lowpass that might have a small peak.
Again, even though it might sound like I added something -- absolutely nothing was done to add or remove something that wasn't already there (except for maybe a little EQ.)
Frankly, this is amazing for ABBA (and I don't have an ego that lets me make such claims... It goes to show how good they really were):
Hey, would anyone happen to have the file for this song? It's no longer on SoundCloud, and I lost it when I changed PC's. I haven't been able to find it -anywhere-, and would be awesome to have someone that still has it!
