Skip Fixing

 Just to demonstrate what weird stuff I find entertaining, here are 2 clips from Dvorak's Symphony Opus 60 that I fiddled with this morning. The LP was a 50 cent Kiwanis Sale special, I found the turntable yesterday morning on the curb while walking Elsie the dog.

Here is the excerpt with the skip.

So a little gentle soap and water, re-record the section in a parallel track in the Audacity sound editor, a little cutting and pasting, and... Here is the repaired excerpt repaired. Of course I could have just recorded it over or maybe even washed the record first but what fun would that be?

Ismael Rivera, "El Bombon de Elena". The composer is Rafael Cepeda. This is Puerto Rican Bomba music, apparently.
