Fever Tree – s/t (1968) [Original USA Stereo LP] + Single

Fever Tree – Fever Tree (1968) FLAC 96kHz / 24bit
Original 1968 USA Stereo LP: UNI Records 73024
Original 1968 USA Mono Single: UNI Records 55060

I bought this record hoping to find a version less compressed than my 2006 CD (mostly for “San Francisco Girls,” honestly, which is a killer track). I bought the best-looking copy of this I could find, and this one played nearly perfectly. It turns out this original LP has less equalization, and no adaptive noise reduction, but the music still sounds a bit compressed.

This LP was very quiet. There’s a couple clicks here and there, but overall it was a really easy rip.
For the occasion, I pulled out the “San Francisco Girls” single from my stacks. This was pretty noisy, and the mix itself sounds like an edited mono fold of the album versions. Still kinda cool to have though, and it only took a few minutes to rip, so I included it here.
