Counting Crows' 1993 debut album released for the first time as an LP in the U.S.!

Double LP cut at 45 RPM, plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings — four sides maximize the recording's dynamic range

Deluxe gatefold jacket!

Mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound

Mono & Stereo magazine's reviewer Matej Isak says Chad Kassem's efforts via his Quality Record Pressings pressing plant "goes beyond simple vinyl revival." "As (it is) for many, August And Everything After is my favourite Counting Crows album. It could be a generation thing and not only a "Mr. Jones" hit single impact. It's true, that this track brought the band glory and recognition to the stratosphere, but that's not merely it. The whole album is a celebration of refined producing and musicianship. ... We might be accustomed to the CD sound of the album as it was mastered as such, but thank God to Chad's persistence of seeking out the releases with analog session tapes; what we have here is a new true analog jewel recording being pressed." — Matej Isak, Mono & Stereo magazine, May 2013. Beyond highly recommended." Named a Mono & Stereo Strictly Vinyl Analog Award winner. Read the entire review http://www.monoandstereo.com/2013/05/acoustic-sounds-stan-getz-joao-gilberto.html

"I compared this double 45 with the old gold CD from Mobile Fidelity, which was far superior sounding to the original CD and boy did it suck compared to this. If you want to know why CDs are an unacceptable medium for rock music compare for yourself. The idea that CDs are "transparent to the source" is such bullshit I don't know where to start. Wait! Yes I do! Compare this double 45 to any CD version. The CD sounds cloudy with soft indistinct drums and no crack whatsoever to anything that should sound dynamic. ... If you're part of the 'Mr. Jones' generation that came of age to this record, you'll want to invest in this sonically spectacular version expertly mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound. You may think you've hear this album but until you hear this edition you really haven't. Quality Record Pressings plating and pressing quality remain models of velvety quiet backdrops and explosive sonics." — Music = 8/11; Sound = 10/11 - Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com, February 19, 2013.

Counting Crows put in the gigging hours during the early days of the band, and it paid off. By the time they signed to Geffen in 1993, they had already built up a significant fanbase. Their debut, August and Everything After, produced by T-Bone Burnettwas released later the same year and became an unexpected multi-platinum hit, partly as a result of the successful single "Mr. Jones."

"We were fortunate that this was recorded to analog in an age that had many digital recordings," says Acoustic Sounds founder and CEO Chad Kassem, who describes August and Everything After  as "one of the better albums in the entire '90s," with a timeless vibe and classic pop sound. Although recorded to audio tape, the album was originally mastered for CD and featured a longer playing time than a standard LP. Thus Analogue Productions has reissued August and Everything After as a double LP set to maximize the dynamic range of this recording. This is the first time that the 'Crows multi-platinum smash has been released in the U.S. as an LP. Mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound.

This was Counting Crows great debut album, I have played the CD many times over as their were so many excellent songs, but now hearing this on vinyl is simply stunning. This is as good of quailty pressing on Vinyl as any I have had the pleasure of listening to. Sit back, relax and enjoy, as this is as good as it gets sometimes.


Over the Top Awesome

Perfect vinyl; dead quiet, tight and fast... beautifully mastered. The music just sucks you in to an amazing debut album. When will see more Crows done this well on vinyl?


A masterpiece!

Album Tracks Review: If you haven't heard this album by now, shame on you. 90% of my musical tastes is punk rock, but I've always had a soft spot for the Crows. August is by far their best. You can feel and hear every emotion of Adam during tracks like Anna Begins, A Murder of One, and Rain King. Then there are the amazing singles. Round Here alone makes owning this a must. There is not one bad song on this record.

This Version of Album Review: Like the other reviewer said, hearing this pressing of August sounds like listening to the album for the first time. Very natural sounding, like the band is playing in your living room. I'm very impressed with the treatment that was given to this album, and hope they do the same for the following records. There's not many albums I'd pay 50 dollars for, but this record was a must, and I'm completely satisfied with the purchase.


Must own for even the casual fan.

This is one of those albums I've gone back to time and again and I'm always pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoy it. This new pressing is a revelation. It's warmth and clarity give the music a new dimension. Quality records has never disappointed and I consider them the new standard in audiophile pressings. Bravo!

I decided several months ago I was going to go back to vinyl and combat sitting at my computer and listening to compressed music from my favorite artists. The purchase of this album makes me feel I've finally reached the pinnacle of my decision. This was always one of my favorite albums but hearing this version is like rediscovering what I've been missing all these years. The blending of acoustic guitars, mandolins, organs, slightly overdriven electric guitars and Adam Duritz's voice and bass is intoxicating. You actually hear the rawness of the Counting Crows in this album. But it's still polished and extraordinary. When I put on albums following a listening of this album, they seem flat and without dimension in comparison. This is a triumph of sound and artistry. I listen to this album and I hear memories of great music from the era. I'd love to hear what you guys could do to Dave Matthews 'Under the Table and Dreaming' from the same era by applying the same treatment to that album.


astoundingly good

I am very familiar with this album. I got this album on cassette tape when I was very young. I then purchased it on CD as well later on. I have listened to both formats of this album many times over the years. This pressing from QRP is scary good and the best version I have ever heard.. Like the other review said, It was like hearing this album for the first time all over again. You will hear small things in the music that you never noticed before, even on the songs you thought you knew so well. If you are a fan of counting crows, you NEED this album. Well worth the price. I hope Analogue Productions continues to release more 90's rock. This is awesome.


Stunning!

I've listened to the CD for years and listening to this record was like hearing the album for the first time. This is the reissue of the year for me. If you're a fan of this album then this is the version to own.
