Thread Name: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
Subject: RE: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
I had thought about uploading a couple of Hedge and Donna mp3's that were mentioned in prior posts (recorded from vinyl) but the site does not allow it and besides there may be copyright issues.

In any case it appears the vinyl is available from ebay and possibly other sources. So get the vinyl. Obtain a good turntable (quality matters). Buy good quality cables from Radio Shack or elsewhere that have RCA type plugs on one end and computer (mini) plug on the other - looks like the smaller type plug on the end of headphones. Your computer must have a sound card for this to work. Plug the RCA into the sound out of your stereo rack system with phono selected. Plug into your sound in on your computer. Obtain sound recording software if you don't have. I like Audacity which is free - http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/
Now the software may seem imposing - but don't use any of the bells and whistles - leave that for a sound engineer. Just record. It takes a while to even get how to do that - but worth it.

While you are at it - check out Compton and Batteau and also Tim Dawe all on vinyl but not didgital.
