Tru Thoughts
180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - 2 LPs Sealed
Right, let’s not beat about the bush – Bonobo’s debut longplayer is, by popular consensus, ‘the business’.

An awe-inspiring showcase of a young man’s staggering musical ability, ‘Animal Magic’ was greeted with swoons of delight and sycophantic praise upon its release in July 2000. Its heart-meltingly lysergic melodies – all bellchimes, backwards vocals and haunting keys – weave an impenetrable gauze of sound that astounded practically everyone who heard it.

Bucking the late-90s reliance on sampling, Simon Green (the man behind the monkey) wrote, played, recorded and produced the entire record himself. The result is an album with such depth and breadth of emotional and melodic content that every track is a potential favourite. Little wonder, then, that ‘Animal Magic’ numbers among Tru Thoughts’ all-time bestsellers.

“Anyone in search of the ultimate chill-out album should buy this debut” - The Observer

“Wonderfully subtle and easy on the ear. This is chill out music with balls – not a cliché in sight” - DJ Magazine

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 collectibles, 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.
