Testimonial from Robin Thomas

I just finished digitizing a cassette of “Old Songs For Weary Folks” for Robin Thomas. I’m thrilled with how this turned out and, while I hadn’t heard these particular renditions, I was familiar with most of these songs and had a great time hearing them again.

Here is How It Sounds

Robin Writes

I’m currently listening to Chris’s digitization of a 40-year-old audio cassette of folk songs that I listened to as a kid. The sound quality is so impressive — it sounds like it was recorded yesterday! Chris was great to work with and had the cassette turned around within a week. Thanks so much for letting me relive a childhood memory!
