SHIPPING INFORMATION

 

We ship all our vinyl via the U.S. Postal Service domestically and internationally. Please keep in mind we only charge what it costs us to ship your package. And yes, we understand the international shipping costs are high. However, we only ship internationally with tracking, which means we must use International Priority Air. Nothing leaves our warehouse without a tracking number. By itself this adds roughly $15 to every package shipped to Europe, for example. And remember, that tracking cost is set by USPS, not us. If you are looking for a cheaper international option you may wish to consider ordering via Amazon.com.

 

In addition, each order is packed by hand in our own custom-designed vinyl shipping mailers. These are two-piece shipping boxes made with higher quality materials to ensure your product arrives the same as if you’d grabbed it off the shelf. They may weigh a bit more, and the shipping may cost a bit higher, but the end result is worth every penny.

 

Take a closer look at our custom-designed vinyl mailers by visiting our store. They are hands-down the best in the business. If you have any questions regarding shipping, please feel free to email us at info@brookvalerecords.com. We answer all emails within 24 hours.

A WORD FROM ENGINEER JEFFREY NORMAN

Brookvale Records is proud to announce our collaboration with

longtime Bay-Area engineer Jeffrey Norman.

 

 

MR. NORMAN ON MASTERING DICK’S PICKS VOL. 3 & 4 FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES:

-

“I was excited to get the chance to remaster the early Dick’s Picks’ releases for vinyl…they were originally mastered for CD in 1995-96, and I was looking forward to hearing the 1/4″ source tapes once again, 17 years later. What I didn’t expect was the dramatic improvement the new mastering gives to these classic releases. The original CD resolution is 44.1KHz/16bit (as is any released CD), while the mastering I am now doing for the vinyl releases is 96KHz/24bit. I’m now using a state-of-the-art analog to digital converter (Pacific Microsonics Model 2)….and I’ve probably gotten better at doing this over the years! I used the original CDs as a guide for the new mastering, but when listening to the CDs I feel like I’m listening in black and white, while the new mastering feels like I’m listening in color. It’s very exciting!

-

A few observations: the mixes for Dick’s Picks Vol. 3 and Vol. 4 couldn’t be more different. The Pembroke Pines show (Vol. 3) is quite bass strong and powerful. The Fillmore East show (Vol. 4) on the other hand is very bright and a little bass shy. Both represent the ears and interpretations of the mixers at the time (Betty Cantor Jackson at Pembroke Pines, and Bear at the Fillmore East), and both capture the quality and excitement of these shows. I did some equalization on both shows to enhance the presentation but kept true to what the original mixers intended. As typical of all Grateful Dead shows, both these two shows are very dynamic….there’s a wide range of volume from quiet to very loud. I tried to keep the dynamics intact, with very little limiting, using limiting mainly as protection against digital overs.

-

In choosing the songs for each side of vinyl, the goal was to be true to the flow of the show and keep the fidelity as high as possible. There is a physical limitation to the length of a vinyl side….if it gets too long there is a loss of bass and level. Ideally the sides would be no longer than 20 minutes, and for the most part that was accomplished. However there are a few sides that are longer than ideal, but because of the way the music lays out there was no way around a few longer lengths. Also because of those side length constraints, there are some songs that had to be split in two (i.e. Vol. 4 Dark Star, The Other Ones, and Lovelight)…sorry, you’re going to have to flip the record to get the entire ‘good stuff.’

-

Considering these tapes are 40 years old (in the case of Vol. 4, Fillmore East), they sound phenomenal! There are some issues on the original recording that can’t be fixed (i.e.. L/R movement side to side in Vol. 3’s Eyes of the World), but that in no way takes away from this great music.”
