Numbered, limited edition LP

An '80s landmark: Ex-Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke and vocalist Alison Moyet create synthpop classic

Smoky blues purring, cool jazz vibes, disco-tinged beats, and dance floor minimalism add up to electropop genius. The 1980s will forever be remembered for electropop sensations, yet few, if any, are quite as sensational as Yaz's Upstairs at Eric's. A standard-setting mélange of smoky blues singing, jazzy arrangements, disco-tinged beats, and dancefloor vibes, the smash debut fits equally as well at a late-night club as it does in a living room, where the record's complexity and exoticism takes listeners hostage. No wonder the 1982 landmark remains one of the decade's most essential albums.

Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this numbered, limited edition Silver Label LP breathes with a decongested openness — Alison Moyet's inimitable vocals, such a huge part of the record's appeal, are dramatically enhanced, her sensual timbre, bittersweet crooning, and knockout range now encompassing the full frequency spectrum and projecting outward in a way that traverses the flatness of the original pressings.

Indeed, her bluesy deliveries are at once elegant and exuberant, and give collaborative partner Vince Clarke free range to construct beat architectures that encompass freewheeling disco, house music, uptempo dance, and chilled-out pop.

Reviewer: Ted
This is the best this album has ever sounded! I have the original release and it is a sad comparison to this pressing. Don't let this one get away. Stunning dynamics, Moyette's voice is amazing!


Quality Control is lacking at MoFi

The first copy I purchased was damaged.

I purchased a second copy and it was is good condition.

I did not return the original damaged copy because it was more trouble than just ordering a second copy.

If you don't have this level of patience, then beware MoFi vinyl quality control
