Arizona's Yesterday by John Cady (1846 - 1927) and Basil Woon.

Volunteers outside the USA: Basil Woon died in 1974. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955) or Canada (author's death plus 50 years), UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies. <p>
Arizona's Yesterday Being the Narrative of John H. Cady, Pioneer. Written by John Henry Cady and revised and rewritten in 1915 by noted Playwright and Journalist Basil Woon. Cady was born in Ohio, served in the Union Army during the Civil War, and eventually settled in Arizona Territory. Cady's story is one of adventure, determination, a pioneering spirit, and an entrepreneurial drive. Arizona's Yesterday is a glimpse of an Arizona not so much filled with gunfighters and warriors, but of an Arizona on the cusp of Statehood and the modern era. ( Tony Posante)
• This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/arizonas-yesterday-by-john-cady/
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/28670
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

Tony, I hope you'll let me serve as DPL. If you're going to want fast turn around, though, you should wait for someone else to volunteer. I've been feeling low (or slow) for the last week or so. I haven't been able to shake it.

Before I forget, I'll let you know that your volumes are too high.

Section 0 needs to come down a full 10db and Section 1 might come down, say, 2db.

I'll get to hearing the content soon, so please don't bother to make changes until I can post an update.

Both Sections 0 and 1 are great, except for the volumes. So ... See PL notes.

This project is going to be great fun. You sure know how to pick 'em! Thanks for involving me!

Methinks I've gotten the volume down from a roar to something normal-ish. Thx for letting me know when I don't do a recording in awhile I forget stuff.

Ch. 2 PL OK!

The edits sound a bit different from the original recording, but that often can't be helped. If you don't mind advice, I'd say be careful to keep your mic in the same place every time you record. That might be the solution.

I tell you, though, sometimes it's just a bear!

I very much appreciate the advice, as you have the "ear" for production values I have not yet acquired. I have uploaded Chapter 3 for review https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/arizonasyesterday_03_cady_128kb.mp3 17:51. I have a couple other raw chapters recorded which I shall review to determine if they sound too different, if so I will re-record. For all chapters after that, my Samson Go Mic is gorilla taped to my desk so it will not move! Best Wishes

Please don't go to too much trouble. Our ears become accustomed very quickly to the new sound quality. It's just when one hears the first portion that is a tiny bit jarring. And maybe I am making too much of it. Anyway, we learn as we go. You should hear my first recordings!

I have to say again how much I like your focus at LibriVox. Lovin' these western stories.
