"...She's enough of a talent to serve up nine of Dusty's (plus one original) with reverence rather than mimicry, while avoiding the obvious songs. But the hook is the sound: it ranks with any 'audiophile' LP you can name." Sound Quality: 90%, Hi-Fi News Album Choice - Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News, September 2012

"...I heard the music in an entirely new way ... the recording is so good, and the Analogue Productions mastering brings such new life to this LP ... Mastered by Doug Sax, this explodes off your turntable." Recording = 10/10; Music = 9.5/10 — Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi +, Issue 89 

" is simply hard to believe how good this LP sounds, the backgrounds are as quiet as any of the famous UHQR pressings. Lynne's voice simply comes out of silence and a real space. It is rich, detailed, and most of all, unbelievably alive sounding. This recording is so good that I swear it sounds like she sings better than she did on the original...This is an LP that every vinyl lover must have in their collection!" - Jack Roberts, Dagogo

"...the first truly all-analog version...a tad warmer tonally, goes even deeper in the lower bass, and has an overall ease to the presentation that makes it the best version yet of this record. In fact, the super-silent 200-gram vinyl surfaces particularly benefit an ultra-dynamic recording such as this, so that previously unheard details such as the lightest cymbal flourishes can now be heard. While it isn't fully clear whether it was the mastering - or the plating and pressing that was responsible for the improvement, there's no doubt that there is one...Highly Recommended." - My Vinyl Review, March 18, 2012 To read the entire review, click here:

"...all I can say is THIS IS INCREDIBLE!!!!!! The sonics are spectacular and the pressing quality is as good as has ever been pressed in my opinion. The backgrounds are dead, black, silent the way Japanese pressings used to come on JVC 'Supervinyl!' and believe me it doesn't get any better than that, though this may even be richer, darker and blacker." Music = 9/11; Sound = 11/11 — Michael Fremer,

"...Despite the album's AAA pedigree, and Lynne's stating her preference for analog and for vinyl — which created a press buzz of its own, particularly after she memorably made the case for the format by saying 'You can't roll a joint on an iPod' — the original vinyl release was a fiasco...Enter Chad Kassem's Analogue Productions. Kassem knew the history and he knew how much better Just A Little Lovin' could sound. So he licensed the title for vinyl and SACD, acquired the master tapes and had them shipped to Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab. The songs arrived on individual reels that had to be spooled off and spliced together to create each side's running master." — Andre Marc,

To read's interview with Shelby Lynne, click here:

One of the most incredible sounding records we've ever heard. It's exactly what audiophiles dream about. A mixture of great music, great performances and a great recording — all with air to breathe. Show-stopping sound!

"There's nothing we've offered that I'm more excited about and that I'm more confident will just blow people away." — Chad Kassem, Acoustic Sounds, Inc. CEO

Released originally by Lost Highway Records in 2008, Just A Little Lovin' is Shelby Lynne's stirring, emphatic tribute to the late British singer Dusty Springfield. It is to date the highest charting album of Lynne's career, reaching No. 41 on the Billboard 200. The producer is veteran Phil Ramone — the engineer for Springfield's original recording of "The Look Of Love."

Reissuing this masterpiece to our Analogue Productions standards was an enormous — and expensive — undertaking. Keep in mind that almost without exception, for every pop record recorded after 1992, even if it's recorded to analog tape like this one, the songs are stored individually. That means that there is never an actual complete album master compiled. So to cut an LP from tape, we had to have mastering engineer Doug Sax assemble an analog master in order so that he could then cut the record to LP, using his famed tube electronics. This involves a lot of extra cost and work. But, since this is such an incredible album, we went all the way. Also, we should mention that Shelby Lynne herself is reportedly a big fan of vinyl.

As for the quality of the record itself, the name says it all. This heavyweight platter from Quality Record Pressings is dead quiet — and smooth. Plating was also done in-house at QRP by Gary Salstrom.

Right on the heels of our Analogue Productions reissue of Dusty Springfield's Dusty In Memphis, which was named Stereophile's Recording of the Month for February 2012, the timing couldn't be more perfect.

In addition to the Springfield tracks, Lynne also covers Tony Joe White's "Willie and Laura Mae Jones." In fact, given the style of music and sound quality, we'd recommend that anyone who likes this record also check out our reissue of Tony Joe White's Homemade Ice Cream ( and our reissue of Dusty Springfield's Dusty In Memphis ( And if you like either of those two records, we think you're gonna like this one.

PopMatters' review of Just A Little Lovin' wrote - "Lynne has crafted a disc that - while not exactly transcendent - still manages to go to emotional places that remain unattainable to your run-of-the-mill pop vocalists." Some of Dusty's biggest hits are covered here including "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me," "I Only Want To Be With You," and "How Can I Be Sure."

Let Shelby Lynne give you Just A Little Lovin' — it'll make your day!

One of the best albums one can ever hear on vinyl. A great selection of songs.

Shelby Lynn’s voice is awesome. Even the silence makes an impact! Wonderful album!!!

Excellent recording; boring music

I agree with the other reviewers who don't really care for the music on this LP. Some songs are wonderful but others are total snoozers. I would suggest listening to the songs before purchasing.

Pleasing to the ears

Awesome sonics, a performance for the ages, captured in glorious anaolog. I would give it 5 stars, but my disc had a surprising amount of surface noise for a Quality Pressing.

Shelby Lynne Nails It!

Like I said, great sonics. Crisp clear, sounds like she's in the room with you. Her material is well....Just OK. No goose bumps here. Of the current female vocals, I would prefer Nora Jones, Diana Krall.

great release

I'm dipping my toe in the vinyl waters after decades of being away. The older records I had listened to so far were OK, but last night I put this on the turntable. I know the CD well, and I've heard Shelby in concert. I was gobsmacked when I heard this start playing. Unbelievable. Amazing. This album has made me a convert to vinyl. It will be the first thing I use to show guests why my old turntable is back out.

Rarely do I agree with all the reviews of a record but this time I do. This is a no brainier, buy this record. Vinyl just doesn't get much better.

Absolutely fabulous. Great music, and possibly the most perfect pressing in my collection. BLACK backgrounds, zero surface noise, and all the sonic qualities that make vinyl superior to cd's. Just buy it.

Some of the quietest vinyl I've listened to. When Shelby's voice comes out of the blackness at the start of "You Don't Have to Say You Loved Me" it gives you goose pimples. This is a great example of excellant recording, mastering and pressing. They got it right on all fronts.

This Is The Reason I Bought A Turntable!

Reviewer: Audio Al
This album is the one to play for your friends who wonder why you bought a turntable. Absolute silent background, the bass and dynamics surpass anything else I own. The sound quality is miles above the regular vinyl version. The space between the notes and the relaxed pacing of the music make this very enjoyable. Shelby Lynne does a wonderful job interpreting these Dusty Springfield classics.

One of the Best

I thought the Lost Highway version was pretty good. Silly me! I wish all my LPs were this good. Audiophile Nirvana. Great artist, great songs and a marvelous sound. The planets/stars are aligned here ++++

When QRP's Tea for the Tillerman reached my table, I heard vinyl at a very high level. I quickly ordered more. When the needle settled on Shelby Lynne's first track, the bar raised...much higher. Great music. Great soundstage.

This record is good. Tasteful choices of songs, convincingly good performances (vocals), great restraint thoughout. The sound coming of this record is amazing. It sounds real, musical, balanced -- not sterile, overly accurate, too precise. This record is at once a showcase for your stereo, and a very listenable performance. The original recording was in 2007 and captured on magnetic tape, therefore no appreciable deterioration of the master analog 'print' such as is probably found on older titles. Just another testament to the superiority of analog sound. Buy this and enjoy.

Dead flat...dead quiet...a sonic masterpiece. I can't believe how much better this pressing is than the original I purchased. Chad & Co. are really doing vinyl right in their new plant. Keep up the great work folks.

You MUST get this record. She and the band sound stunning on a great collection of performances.

Simply amazing!

If you're buying this record then you might be replacing your Lost Highways pressing so you're familiar with how beautiful the music is on this album. That's the case me. What I wasn't prepared for was the night and day difference between the two in terms of sound quality. Every album that I've bought that has been pressed at QRP in Salina has been excellent but I think this Doug Sax mastered album is their gold medal winning masterpiece so far. I was simply blown away from the opening notes on side one to the closing notes on the last song on side two.
