|Having listened to it, I'm confident I can fix the glitch on Part 4 at least to my own satisfaction. I'm wondering if then there is a way I can upload that fixed part 4 (and ONLY part 4) in a way that causes few legal troubles to Oldfield, his record company and to Tubular.net themselves. Currently the most sensible thing to me seems to be to fix it and then upload it as a WAV only and using a password encrypted RAR or ZIP file utilising certain words from the Deluxe edition's booklet to limit its availability, at least theoretically, to owners of the deluxe edition who can then convert it to whatever format they prefer for their home and portable listening.|
I don't have the album yet anyway but once I do, would this course of action be frowned upon?
Not by me... and if, as you say, you make it available to only those who have purchased the deluxe edition, it should result in no loss of revenue... although I am not a legal expert, I can't see anyone sueing.
Presumably you'd take a patch from a previous CD reissue and lay it into the gap with crossfades?
I would see what could be salvaged from the remaster first. On cursory listen on Spotify it sounds like a tiny repeat, which is easily fixed, but then a fraction of a second is actually missing which may require an imperceptible drop-in from the previous CD. I'm sure there are many on the site who could do this for themselves but just as many who cannot so if I can provide a solution for those people, and one which is as legally undubious as possible then I'm happy to do it. I have seen people offering entire rips of certain editions of this album as well as old CD single b-sides on this very forum so I doubt there will be much of a problem.
