Hugo Winterhalter

Here's 2 old records that have never been reissued. The first one ("The best of '64"), I've purchased 3 different copies of. But for some reason I just can't seem to find a decent copy of this record. Luckily we have people like Graham Newton who can digitally restore this stuff for us. I must admit, I gave him very little to work with. Even though this was the best copy I had, it was in horrible condition. Nonetheless, Graham came through for me. Click HERE for before and after samples. If anybody can restore the audio from a worn out record, Graham Newton's the man! And check out the professional printing on the CD: Top notch work. Thanks Graham. The second record ("The Big Hits of 1965") was in near-mint condition and required absolutely no restoration work (and I only paid 50¢ for it). Go figure. See COMMENTS (below) for track listings. DOWNLOAD LINK
UPDATE: This past week I finally managed to find a pristine copy (near mint!) of "The Best Of '64". So I figured I'd rip it and post that here too. Here's the download link: THE BEST OF '64 - HUGO WINTERHALTER & HIS ORCHESTRA

I'm gonna be a pussy-shit and snub your talented minion, and just grab YOUR rips.

Something about the word PRISTINE appeals to me.

Of course if you don't download the first file I posted, you won't get that 1965 album. I know, all my files are so friggin large. That's because I transfer everything at the highest bitrate possible for MP3's. And soon I'll be transferring my entire minidisc collection to FLAC (the last thing I need is to compress those particular files any more than they already are). Enjoy.

Hello Friends,

I just need some information and anyone's help would be great.

Just listen to this parts.

These are the tunes I'm looking for and I want to know the composers or names.
Just let me know if you can recognize them.

Maestro, my advice would be for you to join Graham Newton's "Beautiful-Instrumentals" group (148 members and counting) and post this message over there. Someone there should know. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Maestro said...

Thank you so much for your hints.
I have posted my request there.
Let's see if someone knows these tunes.

Kind Regards,
