MAJOR discovery
« on: June 20, 2008, 02:38:50 PM »
after dusting off the box where my old TWC cassette tapes were lying ... I listened to a tape from mid-1996 and i found an EXTENDED version of Matt's "After The Rain"/"Getting Around, the song NOT on Trammell's 3 -CD set. I guess I captured a segment midway thru the regular LF portion BUT the LF screwed up and the song kept playing NINETY seconds beyond the known portion that we all know from TWCC... Gentlemen... I think i may come close to having that whole song... its a matter of recreating it accurately, according to the melodic patterns of Trammell's other tunes, to try to find the best fit.. but honest i think I may have come close to having the whole song... just need to convert from cassette to MP3.. I think I can do that with audacity right? what would I need to do.....Let me know.. I would like for you all to hear this segment I recorded

Yessir...use a male/male 3.5mm plug...plug one end into the cassette player's headphone/line out jack, the other into the PC's line-in jack.  Set Audacity to capture the audio from the Line In jack...then start recording.

Awesome news!

I, too, am recreating the song. From scratch. It would help me out tremendously!

I'll post the full, finished, reproduced song if anyone's interested. :)

Yeah I don't expect it's anymore than that Carlos.  :sunglasses:

Carlos is doing something totally different. Frankly, I'm more interested in hearing his than yours. His is more or less the real thing. Yours is your own thing.

How so? I'm trying to make it exact as possible. Not to mention, it's the one Trammell considers to be official.

I don't care what he considers. His version is the original and official.

You might also want to consider sending a copy to Trammell...since he lost it.
