Roaring 55s

Roaring 55s CD cover
Deltic recording highlights from 14 of my other albums.

A chance to hear the most impressive Deltic recordings made over many years, all crammed into a double album.

Some recordings are extended full length versions of those previously published. Most recordings have been re-mastered to bring out the best quality for this release.

Recorded during 1981 to 2014.
Some early tracks are digitally processed mono archive recordings (added pseudo-stereo effect).
The remainder are in stereo.
Running time 157 minutes

Highlights include... well, they are all highlights, but recordings of note include:

** Full length (almost 15 minutes) version of an on-train departure from Euston in 1997, with D9000 hauling 13 coaches. We got signal-checked, which created a more impressive audio recording.
** Full length version of a rear cab ride in D9000 on a Virgin service train, when it almost over-loaded on a rapid standing start from Birmingham International in 1999.
** The haunting sound of 55019 approaching in the night at Burton Coggles with a 14 coach train.
** On-train with D9000 on an Anglia service train in 2002, storming away from Ipswich through a tunnel. This is the full length version. Recording equipment overloaded on this one, but I think you'll agree it is worth hearing.
** In D9000's engine room between the 2 power-units, during a Virgin service train working in 1999.
** An epic 13.5 minutes lineside recording at day-break, as 55002 made its main line return, heard near York, in 2014.
