John R T also searched for the best  versions of recordings available, 
frequently playing as many different copies of the same performance as were 
possibly attainable as the initial step of the process.  The best 
"restoration" is the use of pristine source material which requires 
virtually no restoration work at all!  I wish I had similar opportunities.
