Smokey. Noah's Ark Trap (Nic Jones album) (211* d) RE: Noah's Ark Trap 13 Jul 11


I work at the BL and can confirm that the Sound Archive references are for vinyl LPs only, not master tapes. I've seen the records myself, for what it's worth. The different song titles are most likely the result of a cataloguer's attempt to cross reference songs, to give them a 'uniform title' in library-speak. Regrettably there have never been adequate resources to do this properly, so the Sound Archive's catalogue isn't all it could be.

And the tracks are in a different order because?

Please try to be a little more convincing, 'Redmax'; you're not doing very well so far.

It's perfectly obvious that the titles, track orders and the credits were NOT copied or derived from the LPs. It also seems obvious that the tapes they have are not the master tapes, but that they are what the master tapes were recorded from.

If anyone can paint an alternative scenario which accounts for all the factual evidence so far, I'd be delighted to hear it.


Good anecdote Ralphie, I can almost picture the blood-stained splicing block :-)
