Beck On Pallas Vinyl

5 Stars
Posted by audiofan

Beck's newest, issued on standard weight red vinyl, is pressed by "The Pallas Group for Capitol Records". There is also a double-disc, 45-RPM version available for those who can't sit still for more than 2-3 songs. Perhaps it sounds better than the 33-1/3 version, but it would have to be otherworldly - this pressing was flawless (typical for Pallas), with no groove noise, no flaws (tics/pops) or warp, and a stunningly deep, wide soundstage with a warm, involving mix. In short, you cannot go wrong with the "standard" 120-gram version...it simply sounds amazing. Bravo!

Stunning!

5 Stars
Posted by Bill W.

This is a remix as well as a remaster, and a brilliant one at that. It places Pepper in a more modern stereo landscape, and gives it a startling new clarity and energy. This really is the best version I've heard to date - a number of key elements come into sharper focus, and Ringo's drums finally get the spotlight they deserve. I hope they do the same treatment to the rest of the stereo collection, because if this is any indication, I'd buy them all.

A Country Record.

3 Stars
Posted by Martin Taylor.

While not really wanting to put this record in a "box"it would be wrong to not point out that if you are looking for Bluegrass music from Alison this record is not it. Most of the guys from Union Station are on board here (apart from the notesble exception of Jerry Douglas) but the songs are more in the classic country mold. Nothing wrong with that as long as that's what you want when you buy. So, I found this to be a (short) polite album of country covers. About the only criticism that I have is that the vinyl is a bit noisy and that the last track on the first side is particularly bad in that respect. Next time Alison.

Sounds lush, beautifully balanced

5 Stars

Ive had this for a few months and just played it for the first time. Ive always liked the music on this album, but it never sounded like this before. What an amazing job Ron McMaster did with the mastering here.. I highly recommend this for both the music and the richness of the recording. Outstanding!

Roll The Dice...

4 Stars
Posted by audiofan

The re-master here is superb (probably closer to "5-star" territory), but the reason I gave it 4 is because of a issue with the second track on side one (Dreamboat Annie (Fantasy Child). A friend purchased a copy at a local record shop, and there is a audible defect on this track which repeats at the same place on the LP within the first 4-5 revolutions before dying out. This is not a tick or popping sound, but is more like a "heartbeat/thump" -somewhat difficult to describe. My copy has the same defect - in the exact same place. There is also a minor tick or two during the first several seconds of this same track on BOTH discs...hence a pressing defect. Unfortunately, this is one of the quietest tracks on the album as well, so it's a bit annoying. However, the rest of the album is virtually flawless on both copies and sounds superb. So, roll the dice - you may get a better pressing.

Freeze Frame in all it's glory !!!

5 Stars
Posted by TheSturt

This album takes me back to the 80's when it was released. At the time it was one of my favorite albums. This is by far the best sounding digital version of this album I've ever heard. The stereo imaging is great, a very full sound on most tracks and like most higher quality recordings when you put them into the DSD format it just sounds great. I'm hearing things that my 80's system just couldn't reproduce, which is almost like listening to the album for the first time again. Highly recommended!

Rod Returns

4 Stars
Posted by audiofan

Stewart co-wrote pretty much every track on this new LP, and while not quite the equal of some of his best, it is still an impressive effort. The sonics are clean, dynamic, and well-recorded, with pretty decent width, depth, & soundstaging, considering this was apparently recorded in a damp wine-cellar in France somewhere (just kidding). In all seriousness, the vinyl is well-pressed, with but an occasional minor "tick" here or there - nothing on my copy to cause any real concern. I chose the vinyl LP over the CD version, and have no regrets - of course, vinyl (all being equal) brings Rod "into the room" with you in ways digital simply can't (assuming you're comfortable with that notion). Welcome back, Rod...even at 70 you blow most younger, lesser artists away. A very good, well-pressed LP from a living legend

Pretty much perfect

5 Stars
Posted by Brian VanPelt

The buyer should be aware that the first several songs are in mono, while the rest are in stereo. I believe this keeps the integrity of the original recordings, and boy what recordings those are.

The sound quality is absolutely top notch throughout. Frank's voice is centered perfectly, and the clarity is crystal. As you listen to every song, you can easily make out every word - Frank was the master of diction. It's captured expertly.

If you are looking for just one Sinatra album that has almost all of the big hits, you have them here. I don't need to list any songs as you can just click on the track listing. I'm fairly certain that every song on this record is probably the cleanest version of that song available. I'm also pretty sure that the only mono tracks are on the first side of disk one.

I hope I've made it clear how much I love this album. It's possible that I'll buy more Sinatra, but this is one I'll be listening to over and over again. This album is just about perfect.

EXCELLENT

5 Stars
Posted by Clive

This single layer release demonstrates the excellence possible with this format. The piano really is realistic and despite very good bass extension those lower notes are tight and do not over dominate. During the orchestral sections the textures are amazing and with the slow tempo it sounds emotional. The sound stage and depth is well balanced giving a good sense of spatial accuracy in the placing of the performers. This represents a significant advance upon the two MFSL CD versions and has the warmth of MFSL LP. A bounce that will interest collectors' are the inserts that I have not seen since the original release of this Album. Worth the price and will quickly go out of print.

Fun, Fun, Fun

5 Stars
Posted by Jim B.

True, this is for die hard fans. But Shut Down Vol. II multi-tracks were thought to be missing for years till they turned up one day and we got remixed versions of Don't Worry Baby, Why Do Fools Fall In Love, and The Warmth of the Sun. But...To finally have a stereo version of Fun, Fun, Fun in the single length is worth the money. I was afraid since this wasn't released with the others that this spool was not to be found. So now we have an almost completely remixed album minus This Car Of Mine and IT IS GREAT.

The audio and video quality of this Blueray disc is as good as it gets for any mid 60's recording. If you like the Beatles , you will love this film.

Finally done right!

5 Stars

The red and the blue albums sound amazing! Finally the Beatles done right! Theses pressings are quiet and flat. All analog as it should be! Why couldn't we have had the stereo box set done like these? Maybe they should go back and do the box set correctly. Give people $100.00 off if they send there digital crappy box sets back. All analog rules. Don't pass these albums by!
