Grand 12-Inches

Grand 12-Inches

Profile:
Ben Liebrand : "These are the roots of my career in music".

These tracks have determined the path to follow and many of them where revolutionary and truly progressive at the time they where originally released. I have taken the greatest care to come up with the best possible masters, sometimes comparing up to 5 different versions to find out which one sounded the best and most pure. And sometimes even baking the analog master tapes to make them playable again. The heat evaporates the moisture in the coating of the tape. The otherwise moist backing will clog up all parts of the tape recorder the tape touches, leaving a dark glue like substance grinding everything to a halt. After the backing process, the tape becomes playable again and the transfer to digital is performed.

Some tracks feature a combination of vocal and dub version just as I used to perform that combination in a live DJ-set. Such a combination features the best parts from the vocal and dub version, capturing the complete feel of what that track meant to me.

Enjoy!
Ben Liebrand

A couple of things to consider. This is a labour of love by Ben Liebrand and the effort he takes to as meticulously as possible bring what are in some cases, almost lost or destroyed masters back to life is admirable. The other thing to consider is availability. He searches literally the world to track down the masters and then must receive licensing rights to reissue on a limited basis. Is every set and every track a homerun... it depends of if you are a fan or not. I personally have enjoyed each issue. There are many tracks still out there for example "Cerrone's Trippin' on the moon (12" mix) that have never seen the light of day on CD that would be a goldmine to add. But, for the price they are incredible.

A pretty dull series that's vastly overrated which sounds like one long episode of Steve Wright In The Afternoon. There are a lot of brilliant 12 inch dance tracks out there, sadly this hardly contains any of them and has little variation. If you want to get your Mum and Dad up shaking their rheumatoid joints with very middle of the road numbers then this series is just up your street.
