Files below are not dynamically compressed, but as recorded.  Compression above raises the volume of soft sounds- like one person talking, and lowers the volume of louder sounds, like forty people singing forte.  This was commonly done for commercial lp records and tape cassettes because the vinyl and tape could not handle the wide range of volume on top of the natural noise of the medium (needle noise and tape hiss).  CDs allowed a wider dynamic range (i.e. softer softs, and louder louds) because the medium itself, being digital, adds little or no noise.  Got that? Clear as mud?  Never mind.   But you can compare the as-recorded  (below), and as-compressed (above- the better to hear Mary Jane).  Feedback welcome.  Best- rr
