Last updated 12 January 2020
I joined to find out exactly what my precious old LP's are and re enjoy them in my retirement. I've been making mixtapes since my old Wollensack 8-Track Quad recorder. They have set idle for the past 20 or so years. About a dozen years ago I took up sound editing and remastering as a hobby to the point where I now listen to wav files exclusively at home and in my car on a USB thumb drive. In the past few months I've assembled my ripping equipment to get the job done. Most importantly, I bought a VPI Cyclone to make the most of my vinyl. My cart is a very low hour AT- Precept PC440 and lastly a Technics SL1200MK3 to get the most I can get in my rips. Every album I have listed has been cleaned and ripped into 16 / 48k wav files with the purpose of eventually selling it and passing them on to others who might enjoy them as much as I have. I intend to offer mp3s as a preview to anyone who might wish to buy one. I am a Stage IV cancer survivor having had a stem cell transplant over 10 years ago. No telling how long I have so I'm getting busy and trying to make the most of what I got left and have some fun along the way.

This is a very well mastered pressing of this seminal album. Beats later 70's reissues by a mile, even with some snap, crackle and pop.

I just got my copy today from Amazon USA after much hesitation reading about all of the pressing problems. Evidently that is with the USA / Canada Pallas USA pressing. So far I'm listening to Side 2 first after a thorough cleaning with my VPI Cyclone. ... See full review

Agree completely. Yes a very quiet background indeed. Even with the pops and ticks mine is still dead quiet and crackle free. The detail is amazing. The engineering on this album is among the best, for any time period actually. Bruce Botnick and Jac ... See full review

This is a nice version of this album. I have to disagree with the comment below regarding the bass and mids. They are just fine on my rig. I did have to raise the VTA to get it to the proper height for a pressing this thick. It makes all the ... See full review

This was worth waiting for. I was a senior in HS when this was a brand new album. I've been wanting to upgrade for the past couple of years having old worn copies. The old CD's were ok but never much more than that. I considered the 2010 version for a ... See full review

Yep. It is still RCA Dynaflex regardless of the Grunt label. Sounds great nonetheless. Thickness actually has very little to do with anything about the sound.

It's here and been played. This new mix is a real treat. Nearly all of the glitches in the original mix have been fixed also. It seems that Preston's organ tracks in the original mix were subject to tape wow and flutter with noticeable speed changes ... See full review

Perhaps you might want to adjust the VTA. These are very thick records and have to be dialed in to sound properly as intended.
