    One question for the more experienced: Is there any method or tool that can do away with the distortions that affected the 5 multitrack songs recorded in the last recording session of "Come Fly With Me"?

    Yes. Play the mono version. :agree: :love:

    My guess would be to find the most affected frequencies and, as narrowly as possible, reduce them. I guess it all depends on the nature of the distortion. That's all I can think of.

    I'm curious about how well something like this Declip might work, if set well:

    My cat, Baby, likes Frank Sinatra. She gets near me and cocks her ear and listens.

    Does anyone here own the 1998 UK “Sinatra: 20 Classic Tracks” CD on the Music for Pleasure label? It contains 2/3 of the tracks from this album. I only ask because it was one of the first Sinatra discs I ever owned - having purchased it long before I possessed any intricate knowledge of Frankie’s discography and which CD/LP releases are superior - and I’ve been curious for years about what source was used to produce it. The Larry Walsh CD? Or something far less salubrious? If anyone could scratch this itch, then I’d be immensely grateful :D

    I have a question, do we know who remastered the mono mix available on iTunes?

    Most likely: Ron McMaster, in 2014.

    Ah thank you, I was wondering about that because it didn't sound drenched in no noise or like a needle drop. I very much enjoy the mono version, it sounds wonderful.

    (Also did you ever get around comparing the sound quality on the different releases of Happy Holidays From Bing and Frank DVDs?)

    I’m assuming from its date that the iTunes version is derived from the same source as the 2014 HD download (and mono LP by McMaster).

    (Not yet: just returned home tonight.)

    I wish we had gotten some more of those HD downloads, most of them replaced the current issues on iTunes and helped take away some of Norberg’s - monstrosities - I mean remasters.

    (I had assumed you meant home from work or something, silly me.)
