I'm reading a novel that happens to make extensive use of this classic poem, so my appetite was whetted for a reading. :)

How Can I Keep from Singing - OK

Ballad of Hyde Street Grip - OK

Village Blacksmith - Edited and spot checked - OK

File name incorrect, ID tags nonexistent

0:04 - "read for Librivox by..." should be "read for Librivox.org by..."

2:02 - Cuts off right after poem. Needs "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain" and 5 seconds of silence

Chicago - OK

Mr. Apollinax -

0:40 - "Like the old man of the sea's" sounds like you said "old man of the seats"

1:19 - ""His pointed ears... He must be unbalanced," read as "He has pointed ears"

The Second Coming - OK

Tom Van Arden -

File name incorrect
ID tags incorrect

0:01-0:25 - Intro wrong, should be just "Tom Van Arden by James Whitcomb Riley, read for Librivox.org by Andrew Nance."

0:34 - "Where its bond was first begun" missed the "was"

0:38 - "Gleams a land of other days" read as "gleams of lands of other days"

1:39 - "Warp your face, if it be sour" read as "Wrap your face"

1:44 - "If it sharpen up your wit" missed the "up"

1:59 - "Are we all that we pretend" read as "are we all we pretended"

2:23 - "Of the women we have loved" read as "of the woman"

3:09 - "in the future, while, in truth" read as "while in the truth"

3:13 - "Through our tears, nor dare to boast" read as "though our tears"

4:25 - "Who have HOMES, and home's repose" read as "whose homes and home's repose"

----

I think that's it for PL'ing. The poems I checked before aren't updated in the MW. :?

Changed made to the Lady of Shalott
There are a lot less plosives, I think.

Lady of Shalott -

I don't recall what your original recording sounded like. (Good news) fewer plosives on this one, but (bad news) your volume is too low. Have you ever increased your input volume in Windows?

I attempted to edit it myself - I did a noise cleaning set at 8, then normalized to -0.5 dB, then did a Leveler set to moderate. This is how it comes out (perfect volume, at 89 dB):

If you like it, I recommend using this version. Or you can work with your own file to get it to the right volume. :)

-- I updated the MW with PL notes.

Welcome, Katie!
