VERY hot recording -- EXCELLENT customer service
by Cal Liedtke
This Quality Records Pressing of Patricia Barber's MODERN COOL suffers from much of the same problems that the previous Mobil Fidelity Sound Lab vinyl re-issue succumbed to -- it is recorded VERY HOT. Barber's voice is quite sibilant which in my case was so distracting that I could not listen to the LP -- in the same way I had to shelve my MFSL pressing.
However, CUSTOMER SERVICE at Acoustic Sounds was OUTSTANDING! When I called to voice my displeasure I was treated with respect, understanding, and politeness. My issue with this title was resolved to my satisfaction with absolutely no push back.
My CUSTOMER SERVICE experience with Acoustic Sounds is a significant reason why I have purchased records from them in the past and will continue to buy from Acoustic Sounds in the future.
While your QRP pressing of MODERN COOL may be different than mine (I hope) be assured that great customer service will be there to help you.
Last: the MFSL sacd has no vocal sibilants.
