As I did encode these two tracks, perhaps I ought to say that I encoded
them both (and Raymond's "Thieves") using EAC with the Fraunhofer

I've just listened to both of them comparing them to the original .wav
files that I used for conversion and there's no noticeable difference in
"sound" other than the obvious loss of the conversion process. The
Lounge Hounds track is very "spacey" (best way I can think of describing
it!). Mike Deitch, the contributor, said of it: "Reminds me of various
late 60's over psychedelicized productions". "Misty Eyes", too, sounds
close to the original to my ears. 

Sorry if I'm sounding a little defensive here - I'd just hate to think
I'd let anyone down. As Joe says these aren't the versions that will
appear on the final CD. When we've actually reached the final, final
cutoff date Joe and I will be swapping all the .wavs we have so that we
each have a complete collection of originals for the CD burning. At that
point I'm sure Joe wouldn't mind remaking mp3s of those two for the
website. In the meantime I'd be happy to make new mp3s if either Steve
DiVenuta or Mike Deitch would like me to.
