Sound Bites & Double CD Set

 

IBC sessions CD Greenford CD

 

The CD covers above are two collections of The Presidents' mono recordings.

"The IBC Studio Sessions" double CD set features 25 tracks (including both sides of the band's 1964 Decca release) which were produced and engineered by Glyn Johns.

"The Greenford Tapes" double CD set features 34 tracks recorded live in July 1965, at the Oldfield's Hotel, Greenford, Middlesex.

All tracks, some from acetate demo disks, were painstakingly re-engineered and digitally remastered in 2002, by Paul Willmott at Oswald's, Somerset, Bermuda.
