Hello all,

As you know by now, I'm more than happy to share what I do have with you all.

WeTransfer deletes files after a certain amount of time, so I decided to make a Google Drive folder with 16/44.1 WAV files so that nobody has to ask me in the future to re-upload. I don't have too much Google Drive space, but will try to optimize it and leave it for the requests that I assume will be high-demand.

Here it is:


(I do apologize, for this disc is one of my noisier discs. All of the copies of "Singles: 1969-1973" are quite noisy, with good reason. :) )

I've always wanted to ask but the intro with the Why do birds suddenly appear....is that the same exact vocal line taken from the Close To You sung or a newly added vocal line?

Thanks again for sharing...

I think you're referring to the overture/prelude before "We've Only Just Begun." That is a different vocal line :) the piano is also different too. But the quad recorded mix is the same as the one on the regular stereo LP "The Singles: 1969-1973."

I'm glad you like it! I apologize for the noisiness of the vinyl discs themselves... I'm hoping to clean them in a way that won't damage the sound. If anyone has any suggestions... feel free to PM me! Haha.
