Jimmie Haskell - Count Down! (1957)



This is THE outer space album of that era. And to me it´s one of the best either. It features the theremin and some talking alien, and the style is close to surf-music. On the cover you can see Mr. Haskell himself playing his self-developed synthesizer. This one is a must-have, if you like space-age music.

And one more thing: On the picture above you can see the stereo-version. I found that picture on the web, when I prepared this post. My version is the mono-thing, which should be in better quality than the stereo-version, according to some reviewers. I can´t tell, because I haven´t heard the stereo-thing. My file includes pictures of the front and back cover as well.

I don't know if you need anything special to rip from vinyl. I know of a lovely freeware multitrack recorder & audio editor, found at this address:

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Audacity-- I use it to record & edit audio. It's got some built in audio editing tools, like a pen that allows you to remove clicks & pops, noise reduction, normalizing, etc.... Plus, ya can't beat freeware!

@ bunnyboy:

I have a pc, so there´s not much use for me in the software. The Jimmie Haskell link has never been up, so please send me a mail if you want it...
