RE: Digitizing old vinyl

There should never be wow - that's fixable. As for distortion on the Blues Project, sometimes the original recordings are just bad, but still worth re-mixing and/or re-mastering.

An example is the Staples Singers Freedom Highway. The original LP was terrible, and only had part of the church service. Steve Addabbo and Steve Berkowitz decided to re-do it, including the whole service with a better mix. The mix was a challenge, as it was recorded in three-track, with a mic at the pulpit, another at the altar-rail, and the third halfway down the center aisle. The result isn't a sonic spectacular, but it's much better than the original, and I'm glad they did it.
