State of the Union Addresses (1829 - 1836) by Andrew Jackson.

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/state-of-the-union-addresses-1829-1836-by-andrew-jackson/
The State of the Union address is a speech presented by the President of the United States to a joint session of the United States Congress, typically delivered annually. The address not only reports on the condition of the nation but also allows the President to outline his legislative agenda (for which he needs the cooperation of Congress) and national priorities. This album contains recordings of addresses from Andrew Jackson. (Wikipedia and Linette Geisel)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/5050
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: special - Please follow text while PLing. I'm not looking for word perfect. The language is sometimes awkward and following the text will help identify errors which the ear alone may not find.

      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

      Need noise-cleaning?

Section breakdown
Andrew Jackson, December 8, 1829, part 2 6197 read from The balance in the Treasury on January 1st, 1829 was $5,972,435.81.


Andrew Jackson, December 7, 1835, part 1 6450 read through The treaty being once executed on her part, little will remain to disturb the friendly relations of the two countries--nothing, indeed, which will not yield to the suggestions of a pacific and enlightened policy and to the influence of that mutual good will and of those generous recollections which we may confidently expect will then be revived in all their ancient force.

Andrew Jackson, December 7, 1835, part 2 4366 read from In any event, however, the principle involved in the new aspect which has been given to the controversy is so vitally important to the independent administration of the Government that it can neither be surrendered nor compromitted without national degradation.

Section 17 was well read and is very important for this very day. Thanks.

Just a few things I noted:

6:11 public policy to be regulated by partially or prejudice - I think that’s a typo and the word should be partiality –

26:03 and belongs to the people of the States, but in that of – you read United States – Change or not is ok

I was amazed at how relevant and fresh the topic is.

Both items fixed, but the edits are obvious.
I'm using a different editor called "ocean audio" and an awesome vst compressor and cannot duplicate settings after having tweaked the heck out of it.
