Campaign description

At Music Heritage Lab we plan to convert old rare Blues analogue tape archives to ultra-high-resolution digital files in DSD format. 

It is essential that this Blues analogue master tapes’ archive should be preserved as an important part of modern music heritage. Digitising the original analogue masters using the best modern digital format, DSD256 will ensure that this unique collection of  rare Blues recordings will remain available to generations of music fans at its best original quality. 

 UK Blues Analogue Studio Tapes’ Archives conversion to DSD

We have exciting news! An agreement was reached with one of the oldest UK blues labels to license its catalogue of original master tapes for transfer to ultra-high-resolution digital audio DSD256 format for future releases of this unique material as downloads in all hi-res formats. A part of the plan is to release select albums as super vinyl 200 grams audiophile LP pressings, cut with new methods of groove control. 
This UK blues label has a rare catalogue of over 2000 albums which include original cuts by Buddy Guy, Luther Allison, Roy Gaines and a host of other legendary artists of XX century. 

Vinyl LP records and CDs, previously released by this label, are no longer available and the record company was officially closed for a number of years. We’ve decided to give priority to saving this UK Blues label archive and start our MHL project – “Analogue Studio Tapes’ Archives Conversion to DSD” as these precious recordings may soon simply vanish forever. 

We are raising funds and looking for support of a wide audience of Blues lovers to make this project happen. We need to raise £30,000 to set this project in motion. That will allow us to sign the licensing contract, purchase some necessary equipment and commence the digitising process.

If you have a feeling for this project and see its importance and value in the same light as we do, please help us make it a reality.
