Buffalo Springfield Again - mono mix - on a KDX server(?)

Postby MK » Sat Apr 05, 2008 1:38 pm

Anyone know what a KDX server is and how to access it?

This guy ripped the mono mix of Buffalo Springfield Again and put it up there:

http://freqazoidiac.blogspot.com/2007/0 ... promo.html

To recap, the mono mix for this has never been issued. It's THE mix, the one the engineers really worked on. It's very different from the stereo mix, unlike the self-titled debut which had a mono mix that was very similar to the stereo mix.

This isn't the best quality - the guy says it had to be cleaned up, plus they're mp3's - but I've never heard this mix and want to hear it. Anyone know how to grab it? If I can do it without installing anything, I'll up it on sendspace or something.

How do you know it's so different if you've never heard it?

Some things are interesting - Mr. Soul is slightly different (again!) and Hung Upside Down doesn't seem quite as wonky as the stereo mix, but I don't think I'd call it a revelation.

I've had a copy for a while (from Patrick), although it could use some de-clicking.

There are hotlinks on the right hand side of his page that will clue you in, including this: http://ca.geocities.com/freqazoidiac/freqBlog/KDXHotLineHowto.html

Awesome, those links were kind of tiny (at least on my browser) so I didn't see them.

No, I didn't hear them, but trawling through the web, the unanimous opinion seems to be they are different, so I figured it was a safe bet that they were.
