Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Philips) Pepe Romero plays Famous Compositions for Guitar

Every now and then I like to hear to a Spanish guitar being strummed like there is no tomorrow. I came across the vinyl version of this 1977 collection of compositions that fully delivers. As if there may be a necessity, Pepe Romero shows in his humbleness, that he’s one of the greatest guitar players in the world.

I somewhat prefer the parts that have the most tensity, but beyond that I just can’t get enough the [indescribable – yet let’s try and call it serene and utterly and deeply melancholic] Spanish guitar sound altogether. It’s almost like travelling through time, dreaming that a past life of mine must have been somewhere in old Spain…

Ripping Infos


If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
I tend more and more, in the last time, to de-click with an automatic setting between 0.7 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.

  • Software: iZotope RX 4 Advanced, Adobe Audition CS 5.5, Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Very light de-clicking with iZotope, significant clicks manually removing, no de-noising
  • DR-Analisys before converting to Flac
  • Converting Wave -> Flac: Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Artwork: Sony Alpha 350, Epson Perfection V750 Pro, Photoshop CS 5.5

If you like what i do, please consider that a little donation would be very appreciate.
I reinvest all donations in maintenance of my rig, for purchasing cleaning solutions and, most important of all, purchasing of new vinyls.
