" ... the mastering is clean with excellent detail, very well balanced with no over exaggeration from top to bottom bottom and the vinyl is quiet too. ... what you get value for dollar for your $60 with the Analogue Productions version I think it's a bargain I really really do ... really the work that they are doing when you consider the entire package the Old Style Record Jackets that you're getting the incredible pressing, remastering work and quality of sound and quiet vinyl that you're getting of these in my opinion I don't want to say historic but really great albums from the past and to hear them in this quality to hear them sound so good it's like a total redo of the album which I guess is really what it is - it's worth the money to me." — Mike's Vinyl Experience, YouTube video.

1973 was an amazing year for the pop/rock duo Hall & Oates as they ushered their superstardom further with the incredible second album masterpiece Abandoned Luncheonette.

Produced by the great Arif Mardin, this nine-song album fused with classic Philly soul, rock and acoustic pop anthems delivered in a big way for the history making duo. Including the huge hit single "She's Gone," as well as the celebrated title track, Abandoned Lunchonette was a watershed album which has rewarded them with non-stop success for the past four decades.

Abandoned Luncheonette is the most commercially successful of the duo's Atlantic Records period; the album reached No. 33 on the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart. Twenty-nine years after its release, the album was certified platinum (over one million copies sold) by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). 

This top-notch Analgue Productions reissue is pressed at Quality Record Pressings, and housed in tip-on old style gatefold double pocket jackets with film lamination by Stoughton Printing.

It's not like I was unaware of what a great track "She's Gone" has been over the years but for some reason, this album never made it into my vinyl collection. I just finished listening to all four sides and this is one stellar collection of tunes. In my opinion, some of Hall & Oates best work! Not a bad track on it!! She's Gone has NEVER sounded better in any format! The sound stage and separation of the music is crystal clear. Every vocal and instrument, right down to the banjo and fiddle on "Every Time I Look at You" is immaculate! The packaging and presentation are spot on! Let's wrap up with a tip of the hat to Acoustic Sounds for their quality of products and first-class service! After nine years...I've NEVER been disappointed! THANK YOU!

A real sleeper

Although I knew of this LP and remember when it was first released I've never given it much thought. When Chad announced the Atlantic releases I took a chance on Abandoned Luncheonette. What a great album!!! The wife was singing along. Detailed, dynamic with a huge soundstage just sounds so darn good.

I have heard multiple pressings of this album through the years. What has been done here changes everything. The clarity, soundstage and depth makes the music sound as if it were recorded yesterday. I never thought this album would ever sound this good. Another one hit right out of the park.
