Ireland-based The Dubliners visited L.A.-based Cups 'N Strings to restore their multitrack analog masters (recorded between 1975 and 1983 at various studios in London and Dublin) and archive to 96k/24-bit Pro Tools|HD for an upcoming commemorative release on Baycourt Records. Fiachra Sheahan, son of Dubliner John Sheahan, is supervising the project, which will include both CD and DVD releases. Simon Factor of Dublin's Moving Media flew to the studio with 10 multitrack masters, some of which included unreleased music.

“We tried to work on the tapes in Dublin,” Factor said, “but we couldn't find one studio that could handle the range of formats and associated technologies. For sonic consistency in the restoration and transfer, we felt it was wise to call on Bruce Maddocks [owner/chief engineer at Cups 'N Strings]. Not only did he have the equipment and experience for the delicate baking of the tapes, he also had all of the different head stacks and noise-reduction gear.”
