Music On Vinyl
180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - Sealed
1986's Class of '55 Memphis Rock and Roll Homecoming reunites the four music superstars Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and Carl Perkins who had all famously recorded for the legendary Sun Records label circa 1955. Reminiscent of the Million Dollar Quartet from three decades earlier with the exception of Elvis who is replaced by Orbison here, the iconic collective runs through a vintage 10-song set that includes Perkins' own "Birth of Rock and Roll," Cash's "I Will Rock and Roll With You," Orbison's "Coming Home," Waylon Jennings' "Waymore Blues," John Fogerty's "Big Train" and the Cash/Lewis/Orbison/Perkins original "We Remember the King."

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
