    Brilliant thanks for this info, this place is great !!

    Question: Does the BBC6 Night version (I recorded it to minidisc from DAB but do not have a player at the mo to check) of 'The Scarecrow' contain the version where there is joking and banter over the first part of the song by the DJ's ?

    I knew I would get something wrong! Spent 2-3 hours amassing the information today and felt compelled to finish it last night before going to sleep. Now amended and I'll change the posts at the beginning of the thread where necessary like the 'list of best known sources' thread. I think this should be made a sticky and hope the moderators agree it would be a good idea

    Agreed, this really deserves the 'sticky' status. Thanks, it is the comprehensive summary we needed.
    One word about December 68 transfer. In the version from you and Beechwoods IO is plagued by static, and I am quite doubtful that it could be the best version. I think that we should stick with HRV for that track.

    If only the band had responded to assistance reaching out to them right?
    I think we all want them to look and sound their best.

    This one is simple - find out who created Let There Beeb More Light or use it if necessary. Might be worth trying Ken Garner for this date as well.

    I have transferred some tapes which were copied from a set of reels donated to the BBC of the complete three hour programme. They are a very good representation of what you would expect an off-air recording from the time to sound like and are inferior to LTBML. The only thing they offer is a little bit more DJ chatter.

    There is also an incomplete three part MP3 recording that can probably still be found online. It sounds pretty bad but could have a relationship to LTBML.
    The LTBML material looks very similar to what's on JWB's The Syd Barrett Tapes but sounds a bit brighter. I believe the compiler of LTBML took that and applied some EQ to it.

    The original source material on HRV, JWB, HYGIY and LTBML ultimately seems to come from the same medium wave transmission in 1986 but from different transfers and processed and edited differently.

    Corrections welcome!

    You're right - great spot! I'll amend the top of the thread. Are you also saying that you think the JWB copy is sourced from the 1986 rebroadcast? If yes, I think you are wrong about that.

    Few more remarks.
    Both Arnold_Layne wonderful transfers, DSD and PCM, are equally worth. PCM has the advantage of being easier to remaster, of course. And a small adjustment would be needed indeed to reach perfection, for me that reel sounded slightly too bright.
    Mono masters from jonsacticuk are nice, but unfortunately he didn't finalize it as real dual-channel mono. There are slight phase issues through all tracks on both discs.
