Thanks, Brian. I have several things to PL on my plate.
I'll add yours to the list and do it tonight.
You shouldn't wait for inspiration...
You should go out after it with a club.

Obviously, this section was not written by Brann himself, but whoever wrote it did a great job of lashing out. O'l Brann would be proud.

Section 25 is PL OK!

Great job Brian.
Checker says the volume is 87.8 dB which is close to the bottom of the acceptable range, tho. On your future recordings (and I hope there are many more), check before uploading and get the volume in nearer to 90.

Yes, Section 29 is yours, Andy.
Welcome to the Brann The Iconoclast project.
Have at it!!

Let me note that Volume 12 is densely populated with eulogies and Praise-Pieces ABOUT Brann, but there also a few pieces written BY Brann.

Here is section 43. There's a bit of offensive language (n word), so perhaps readers need a disclaimer...

It's one of the largest section and a good'n, too.
Thank you Rita

Thank you for this very competent and error-free reading of still another "praise piece" for Brann.
Section 29 is PL OK.

I hope you'll take a cut at some of the other sections, the by-Brann ones.

Question: when I moved your audio file into audacity, the wave form looked remarkably well bounded within upper and lower limits. My curiosity is dying to know what effects or settings you used to achieve this. Do tell!

Thanks again.

Thanks!! Right now my process is: I use 3 passes of noise reduction at 12-6-6, a 5000hz 6db low pass filter, a 100hz bass rolloff, 2 passes of 3:1 compression based on peaks, and then replay gain, amplify, and fix dc offset with normalize. I think the two rounds of compression, and replay gain/amplify are to credit for what you are referring to. :)

Holy Moley!!!
That's very complex... and successful. How did you come up with this series of steps? Are you some sort of acoustical engineer?

While I'd like to think so, I am not. I found a lot of useful information on these forums, and also applied my knowledge of years of amateur music production. Over my last couple weeks on the site i've been able to dial in what i think is a good sound, and I'm approaching some sort of consistency with it. :) I'm glad it sounds good! Thank you.

Almost an hour long and not a single significant flaw did I see! Amazing!
Brann at his most bombastic.
Thank you Rita.

One note: in several other Brann sections (both Vol. 01 and Vol 12) he uses the word "DIVES". This is an archaic, high-brow word meaning:
Di·ves /ˈdīvēz/ two syllables DYE-Veez

used to refer to a typical or hypothetical rich man.
"there must be rich and poor, Dives says, smacking his claret".

Really well done, Rita. You're a star!
