Various - Medium Raw Compilation (BYOV) (Non-Beta)

The comp. that started this crazy collection off...

Yep, that "infamous" compilation released back in the 80s from B.Y.O. Victoria. Produced (originally) by: Ken Jensen (RiP) (Red Tide) & Jeff Helgason. Transferred from a really crummy two track Type 1 (Normal) cassette. Processed using WaveLab v5.00/Steinberg Clean and normalized most if not all the tracks, twice. I do believe this is the best I can make it sound, IMO!

Track 1-4 came from the NEOs reissues which were grabbed from Alt.Binaries.Punk. Tracks 17-20 came from the Patriot 12" rip I did from cassette (thanx Jason Flower!!!), which actually sounds really good.

Another version of the rip was used to compare the version I have, my thanks to
Larry Petersen, who runs the Reynolds Rocks website.

January 13th, 2007: Dropped all the levels down (some at -6 db), appears to sound a bit better. Also edited the start and end of each track.

July 31, 2007: Copied over tracks that were on the All Your Ears Can Hear comp. to the Medium Raw comp. as the mix was WAY better. (Red Tide-Nato Actionaut and Jerk Ward-UFO.)
