  1. Thanks Moos, don’t think these were reissued on his “Musique Afro Cubaine vol 1 & 2” CDs. I’ll have to dig them up and check, but i highly doubt it.

  3. Ciao Moos,

    I love this album so much! Many, many thanks for posting! Obrigado!

    I have managed to filter some of the hiss out, by using WavePad. Have you ever tried something like this?

    Unfortunately it looks like there’s no open software for this kind of thing (MP3 license? When does it expire?).

    I know a bit about acoustics (being a physicist) and have lots of programming experience. I would thus love to develop something for “cleaning” these records. Would that be useful, in your opinion?

    Best, Fabricio
