" The biggest distorter is the LP itself. I've made thousands of LP masters. I used to make 17 a day, with two lathes going simultaneously, and I'm glad to see the LP go. As far as I'm concerned, good riddance. It was a constant battle to try to make that music sound the way it should. It was never any good. And if people don't like what they hear in digital, they should blame the engineer who did it. Blame the mastering house. Blame the mixing engineer. That's why some digital recordings sound terrible, and I'm not denying that they do, but don't blame the medium. " -
Rudy Van Gelder. 1924 - 2016

A note on sales; If there is no mention of the OBI in the description in relation to Japanese items then it will be included. I will only mention the OBI to say it is missing. Many thanks...
