Haven't played the John Martyn yet, but there's this from the Abbey Road website re half speed remastering (if I can make the URL thing work...)

Thanks, FS - I think I understand the principle of half-speed remastering...nevere heard od=f {i]de-essing[/i] before.

This was the first Chrimbo, in ages, I didn't get at least a record, or CD....Must've been well over 20 years, straight, or summat. Maybe, 2017, is the intermission between another 20 years, or so? Wink

Those of you, who did get something musical, got some tidy releases. Joe's "Markett's" really got my attention. I didn't see that one, coming! Very Happy

Only thing shaving related I got, was some super sharp double-edge blades, from Germany.

https://d7j2q3kmwtrw.cloudfront.net/upload/product_images/19102_3.jpg

The merchant, wrote a lovely snippet, with the invoice, about being extra careful with these blades, else I may mutilate, myself! I plan on shaving with them, on New Year's Eve. If I don't log in, within the next few weeks, I'll be dead, or in hospital. Mr. Green

Funnily enough, part of the shaving things I received was a razor that uses those type of blades. Not sure if I really want to use it though. Memories of my dad coming downstairs with bits of toilet paper stuck to his chin



Cool

Wasn't that style the first so-called "safety razor"?

Good luck with those Sethers! ...take care.



If memory serves, in steel terms, Solingen is the German equivalent of Sheffield.

I love my double-edge razor. I won't ever go back, to those multi-bladed ones, ever. Found some great shaving soap, from Turkey, and my razor is a very mild shaver. It's made by Lord, and was the one, Tommies, were issued, in WWII.

I will say, you have to shave, slowly, depending on the blades. These Solingen blades, are super sharp. I can see why the merchant, wrote, what they did.

If I did manage, to nick myself....I have an alum block at the ready, and for more serious cuts, petroleum jelly, to smear over it. Wink

I've found, I prefer the razors from SE Asia, the best, for everyday use. Their metal is super soft, and more forgiving, than something from Japan, or Germany. Those Japanese, or German razors, offer a super close shave, though. Smile

Yes. Gillette created a shaver, with a guard, to keep folks, from being able, to kill themselves, with their razors.....Or summat.

My Lord razor, has a massive guard on it, which makes it, almost impossible, to butcher, one's face.....Of course, now that I've said that...... Rolling Eyes

For me, it's academic anyway as I've been a beardy for about 5 years. In fact, why did my sister and niece buy me shaving kits? Are they trying to tell me something?

This reminds me that I had a toy shaving kit in about 1964 which father bought me from Leicester's in Balham High Road. Bloody face was red raw from using it. I know kid's toys are often made to aid future development (girls and dolls, boys and cars etc) but this was taking things a bit far!

...I guess getting red raw was just setting you up for the real thing in later years, Marc!

You're not wrong there Joe. I think it was about the only thing the b******d ever bought me, and looking back it surely has to be a 'what on earth were you thinking?' moment.
