    Soul To Soul (200 Gram Vinyl)

    Expanded Double Trouble Lineup Created Vaughan's Most Diverse Album


    Mastered From The Original Analog Tapes By Ryan K. Smith At Sterling Sound


    Cut At 45 Rpm, 200-Gram Pressing By Quality Record Pressings


    The new remastering sounds amazing. Better than it ever did. I'm happy and pleasantly surprised.

    -Chris Whipper Layton


    The 45 RPM Analogue Productions reissue of Stevie Ray Vaughan's Soul To Soul is so good, as are its 45 RPM companions - Texas Flood and Couldn't Stand The Weather - that they truly represent what Gregg Geller, producer and A&R representative described as the best replication of the master tapes to date.


    We've already brought you the 33 1/3 RPM box set Texas Hurricane featuring the greatest Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute ever reissued - six of Vaughan's most classic album titles remastered for ultimate blues and guitar fanatics. We've now taken the extra step and done 45 RPM versions of these three standout LPs.


    We've used the original 30 inches-per-second, half-inch analog master tapes for all of these albums. Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound cut the lacquers for the LPs using the ultimate VMS 80 cutting lathe. Gary Salstrom handled the plating and the vinyl was pressed of course at our Quality Record Pressings, maker of the world's finest-sounding LPs.


    Stevie Ray Vaughan's myth making was already complete by the time that his third record in as many years was released in October 1985. But no one could have expected the artistic leaps and additional prowess the guitarist displays on Soul To Soul, a record on which Vaughan added a full-time keyboardist and saxophonist, and dug deep into his native state's musical well for soul, R&B and surf motifs. Vaughan wrote four of Soul to Soul's 10 tracks; two songs were released as singles. The album went to No. 34 on the Billboard 200 chart and the music video for Change It received regular rotation on MTV.


    There's not a link in this production chain that wasn't absolute first-rate. The absolute best that money can buy.

    Gimme Back My Bullets (45 RPM)


    45 RPM 200-Gram Gatefold Double LP Reissue


    Remastered By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound From The Original Analog Tapes


    Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings!


    Tip-On Gatefold Jacket By Stoughton Printing


    What would American southern rock be without the scorching sounds of Lynyrd Skynyrd? Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings have already brought you exceptional reissues of Second Helping and Nuthin' Fancy. Back to the well then, we go, for two more Skynyrd favorites - the epic Gimme Back My Bullets and the band's bluesy, hard-rocking 1973 debut Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd.


    This 1976 Tom Dowd-produced classic, Gimme Back My Bullets, the fourth studio album from the legendary southern rock band, features the original line-up of Ronnie Van Zant on vocals, lead guitar great Gary Rossington, Allen Collins on guitar, Leon Wilkerson on bass, Billy Powell on piano, and Artemus Pyle on the drums.


    Other records from the late, great, and original Lynyrd Skynyrd were more barroom raw (Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd), indelibly rocking (Second Helping), and radio-ready (Street Survivors), but none was as endearing and cohesive as Gimme Back My Bullets). The 1976 LP, whose title referred not to ammunition, but to the Billboard term 'No. 1 with a bullet,' found the normally three-fisted Florida guitar army one axe short.


    But it allowed Gary Rossington and Allen Collins to work more intuitively on the songwriting chores with vocalist Ronnie Van Zant, while providing room to groove in the process. The results, though underrated in the band's epic pre-crash catalog, sweep into rock ('Trust,' 'Searching'), blues ('I Got the Same Old Blues'), folk ('Every Mother's Son'), and country ('All I Can Do Is Write About It'). - Amazon

    Communique (45 RPM) (Pre-Order)


    Smooth, Effortless, Relaxed, Tuneful, And Deceivingly Simple: Dire Straits' Communique Teems With Technical Perfectionism, Southern-Styled Grooves, And Low-Key Blues


    Reference-Level Detail, Depth, Soundstaging, Balance, And Presence: Communique Has Never Sounded Better Than On Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP Version


    Mark Knopfler's Mesmerizing Textures, Intricate Lines, And Crisp Tones Pair With Engaging Storytelling And Tight Rhythms: Every Song An Example Of Understated Virtuosity


    The performances on Dire Straits' Communique are so smooth and effortless, they were originally criticized for replicating the blueprints of the band's breakout debut. Time, however, has a way of changing perspectives and exposing the truth. More than 35 years after its original release in June 1979, Communique rightfully takes its place as the group's most underrated record - a nine-track set spiked with engaging storytelling, relaxed vibes, and deceiving simplicity.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP set of Communique elevates Dire Straits' sophomore album to an even higher plane. Recorded in the Bahamas by Muscle Shoals veterans Barry Beckett and Jerry Wexler, the songs benefit from a laidback approach that makes guitarist/vocalist Mark Knopfler and company's stellar playing seem even more fluent - particularly when experienced on this collector's 45RPM version, on which the wider grooves allow for more detail retrieval and deeper musical insight.


    Knopfler's mesmerizing guitar textures and composed vocals appear as if they're right in front of you, holding court amidst expansive soundstages and deep-black backgrounds. Details, imaging, and presence are on a level associated with the finest audiophile recordings. You'll be hard-pressed to find another LP with cleaner, pinpoint-accurate tones. Mobile Fidelity's LP also brings into transparent view Knopfler's seemingly perfect intricate lines as well as the simpatico accompaniment from his band mates. Whole, lively, and balanced, the bass and drums arrive with a solidity rarely heard on albums of this era. Communique has truly never sounded better.


    Of course, the audiophile sonics mean little if the artistic content is lacking. Needless to say, Dire Straits' technical perfectionism and creative elan prevail throughout. Knopfler's penchant for sketching cynical characters is further developed on moody tracks like Where Do You Think You're Going and News, while Wexler's presence at the boards ensures the band keeps the rhythms extra tight. The quartet's low-key blues and swampy, Southern-styled grooves turn every song into an exercise in understated virtuosity.


    Refusing to give into excess, magnetic tunes such as Lady Writer and Angel of Mercy split a fine line between insinuating and insisting. The group shows off a combination of control, virtuosity, and tunefulness that harkens back to a rock n' roll's classic period while also pointing the way ahead. Need indisputable evidence of Dire Straits' compositional strengths? Cue up the closing Follow Me Home on this pressing and get lost amidst the peacefulness of the gentle surf and chirping crickets that frame the song. Heavenly.


    The sequence serves as additional proof that Communique remains one of the best-sounding rock records ever made.

    Ted Nugent (45 RPM)

    The Best-Sounding Track - Stranglehold - Has Side 1 All To Itself! Cut At 45 RPM, Spread Over One Whole Side - Unbelievable Sound! Stranglehold Indeed!


    Gatefold Jacket!


    Mastered By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound Using Legendary Mastering Engineer George Marino's Notes From His Original Mastering Sessions With The Original Analog Tapes!


    Remastered By Smith In George's Mixing Room Using Marino's VMS 80 Lathe


    200-Gram Vinyl Plated By Gary Salstrom And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings, The World's Finest Lp Maker!


    Self-Titled Album Made Nugent And His Gonzo Guitar A Rock Icon!


    There was a moment, in 1975 to be exact, when Ted Nugent was taken very seriously. As a musician. Before he decided to become whatever it is that he is now. ... Let's think back to 1975 when Ted was just a sex-crazed rock star who made a killer self-titled debut solo record that has now been remastered and reissued as a gatefold, by Chad Kassem's Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings. While his songwriting interests have never really changed, these were the best takes on all those ideas that Nugent would from this point on build his career on. ... on Ted Nugent his guitar riffs were never sharper, his playing never less indulgent. This is a record where even the inner cuts like 'Just What the Doctor Ordered' and 'Queen of the Forest' were good to great. - Robert Baird, Stereophile, May 2014


    We were fortunate with this one. Fortunate you say? How so? Well for starters, the late and lauded mastering engineer George Marino at Sterling Sound mastered and cut the original 1975 release of Ted Nugent. Almost 40 years later, after some digging by George's protege, Ryan Smith, on behalf of this Analogue Productions reissue - lo and behold - George's mastering notes resurfaced as well as the original analog tape masters.


    With the release of Ted Nugent, the self-proclaimed Motor City Madman and god of gonzo guitar became not just a star, but one of rock 'n' roll's icons. The songs Motor City Madhouse and Just What The Doctor Ordered would become two of many of Ted's road anthems. These and the other 10 monster tracks on Ted Nugent were clear evidence that Ted was an artist to be reckoned with.


    Ted Nugent still likes to reflect back on what his critics were saying as he put his band, the Amboy Dukes, to rest and started the next phase of his career-one that would be under his own vision, his own direction and most importantly, his own name.


    I remember some of the more creative writers of the ilk claimed it would be 'the final nail in my coffin' - quote, unquote, Nugent says with a redemptive laugh. I knew better.


    The mention of Ted's name elicits different reactions from rock fans today in different parts of the country. Nods of familiarity on both coasts, and clenched fists and knowing grins in the vast Midwest and South. He's sold millions of albums. Rock radio couldn't play enough of him - and neither could promoters, who made him the hardest-working and top-grossing gunslinger of the mid- and late-'70s. While most other rockers posed with their sleek Stratocasters and Les Pauls, there was Nugent, whipping his mane of hair around his head as he cranked out sound on his big Gibson Birdland, a hog of a guitar with rich, thick and creamy tones - clearly not something to be trusted to amateurs. But in Nugent's hands it screamed, squealed and cried, providing a vivid 3-D voice for the monster crunch of Stranglehold, the menacing stomp of Stormtroopin and the fiery boogie of Hey Baby, Motor City Madhouse and Snakeskin Cowboys.


    We feel this is Ted's finest recording by far. And here, you'll hear this classic more clearly and vividly than ever before. This reissue was remastered by Smith in the late George Marino's mixing room at Sterling Sound using Marino's VMS 80 lathe and an ATR 102 tape machine modified by Mike Spitz-the only one of its kind in the world.. Then this 200-gram vinyl beauty was pressed by Quality Record Pressings, makers of the world's finest LPs, where it was plated for vinyl by Gary Salstrom, QRP's master plating technician and general manager. The power burned into these grooves is difficult to find anywhere else this side of the Atlantic, and indeed it remains a rare commodity anywhere in the world.


    As Ted himself proclaims: If anyone wanted to know what rock 'n' roll was all about, this is the only album they'll need.

    The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (Mono)

    Ranked 97/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time


    The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan Marks the Beginning of a Cultural Sea Change: 1963 Set Transformed Songwriting, Folk, and Pop


    Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram Mono 45 RPM Vinyl 2LP


    Wider Grooves for The Ultimate Sonic Quality: Strictly Limited to 3,000 Copies, Mobile Fidelity's Mono 45RPM Vinyl Pressing Teems With Directness and Sound Dylan Originally Intended


    Records Ambitious Poetry, Melodies, and Moral Conviction Transformed Songwriting, Folk, and Pop


    Includes Masters of War, Blowin' in the Wind, and A Hard Rains A-Gonna Fall


    Originally experienced by everyone in direct, attention-getting mono sound, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan is the album the ignited sea changes in pop culture, music, songwriting, poetry, and the social consciousness. It's the creation of a 22-year-old visionary still years away from casting a jaundiced eye to the media. It's the sound of change, the feeling of ground shifting beneath one's feet, and the entrance of an entirely new way of thinking. It's the effective beginning of what's arguably the boldest career in music history, the yawning vortex into the complex mind, supernatural wordplay, and folk techniques of a vocalist/guitarist whose name is forever associated with transformation.


    Mobile Fidelity is humbled to have the privilege of mastering the iconic LP from the original master tapes, presenting it in its original take-notice mono sound, and pressing it on 45RPM LPs at RTI. Strictly limited to 3,000 copies, the end result is the finest, most transparent mono analog edition of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan ever produced. Never before has the resonance of his nylon guitar strings, fingerpicked notes, shivering harmonica fills, or plainspoken timbre possessed such directness, clarity, openness, body, or realism.


    As the preferred mix at the time of the recording, the mono version presents Dylan as he and his producers originally intended. More intimate, focused, and direct than its stereo counterpart, the mono edition places Dylan's vocals in the heart of the musical action and as one with the accompaniment. It paints listeners an incredibly accurate portrait of the attention-getting, concrete mass of sound that features no artificial panning and straight-ahead immersion into the music. With the advantage of wider and deeper grooves, the 45RPM pressing affords the opportunity to detect more information and lavish in extra richness. Whether it's the exaggerated nasal accents employed on Down the Highway or the decay of each strummed line on the entirely acoustic album, previously concealed details, microdynamics, and ambient cues surface - enhancing the listeners' experience and taking them inside Columbia's Studio A.


    Exponentially surpassing the potential he demonstrated on his debut, Dylan became a mirror of the concerns, issues, and feelings confronting the nation. Writing and singing with penetrating honesty, observational wit, moral conviction, and scathing emotion, he digs into the madness of war (Masters of War, A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall), hypocrisy of segregation (Oxford Town), urgency of civil rights and freedom (Blowin' in the Wind), and multiple angles of unrequited love (Girl From the North Country, Don't Think Twice It's All Right) with a literate astuteness and depth that, nearly 50 years later, still leave audiences slack-jawed. Satire, absurdist humor, and traditional blues also pepper the album, which rests upon graceful melodies and sparse, poignant patterns.


    Viewed as protest songs, love songs, folk songs, or talking blues songs, the material on The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan remains amongst the most astonishing and imaginative ever committed to tape. It deserves - as much as you deserve - a fidelity that makes as closely intimate as possible the music's connection with you. You deserve this mono edition.

    Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits

    Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram 45RPM 2LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes, Five-Times Platinum Collection of Dylan's World-Changing Singles Spanning 1963 Through 1966


    Experience These Precedent-Setting Songs in the Best Fidelity Possible: Wider Grooves Translate into More Information, Detail


    Includes Anthems Such as Blowin' in the Wind, The Times They Are A-Changin', Like A Rolling Stone, and Mr. Tambourine Man


    Ten songs that ultimately changed the world. Ten songs pulled from precedent-establishing albums recorded between 1963 and 1966. More than five-million copies sold. In every way, Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits is a fundamental collection for every music lover, and the perfect choice for those seeking an introduction into the legend's vast career. For this is a collection so prized, even the cover photo won a Grammy.


    Mastered from the original master tapes on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this restored 45RPM analog version offers listeners of all stripes to hear some of the world's most important music ever recorded in supreme fidelity. While the tracks stem from several different albums, on this release, they share more in common than Bob Dylan-they share rich, sonic traits steeped in astounding dynamics, great balances, tremendous soundstaging, and realistic imaging. Wider grooves mean more information reaches your ears.


    Greatest-hits volumes are often hit-and-miss propositions not because of what they contain, but because of what's missing. Filtering the top selections from the six formative, life-altering albums Dylan made between 1963 and 1966 is an arbitrary process but one performed impeccably on this set. Home to his biggest chart successes as well as his most influential songs, Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits is a veritable template for any aspiring singer-songwriter, an American history lesson, and a seminal release for anyone new to his work-as well as for audiences that find some of his deeper cuts an acquired taste.


    Every signature facet of Dylan is represented, and done so authoritatively. Serious, protest folk anthems ("Blowin' in the Wind," "The Times Are A-Changin'") sit alongside defiant rock statements ("Positively Fourth Street"), landscape-changing epics ("Like a Rolling Stone"), beautiful blues-inspired odes ("I Want You"), and surrealist dreamscapes ("Subterranean Homesick Blues"). Infused with literary poetry, impassioned emotion, and career-making performances, this material doubles as a definitive account of American culture and society, and functions as a soundtrack to the era's social movements.


    Gathered in one place, it's no wonder the songs here gave Dylan what remains the biggest-selling album of his career. Accept nothing less than the best version in existence.

    The Ultimate Pressings Of The Beach Boys Discography From Analogue Productions!


    Audio Production - Mark Linett


    For Brother Records - Elliott Lott


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio, Most From The Original Master Tapes Or Best Sources Available


    Double LP 45 RPM Pressing!


    Lacquer Plating By Gary Salstrom And 200-Gram Vinyl Pressing By Quality Record Pressings!


    A musical legacy that began in Hawthorne, California and went on to conquer the world. Analogue Productions presents the ultimate pressings of 14 essential Beach Boys albums! Mastered by Kevin Gray, most from the original master tapes, and plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings, the finest LP pressing facility in the world, these are awesome recordings to experience. And the look of each album befits its sonic superiority! Presented in old school Stoughton tip-on jackets, these time-honored favorites shine brighter than the originals!


    Surfer Girl, the Beach Boys' third album for Capitol Records, was the first produced by Brian Wilson on his own (the previous two, Surfin Safari and Surfin USA (Mono & Stereo Remasters), were co-produced by the late Capitol A&R man, Nick Venet). This album was The Boys' first really great effort; there's not a bad track in the lot, including the title song, Catch A Wave, In My Room, Hawaii, Our Car Club, Little Deuce Coupe, Your Summer Dream, and more.


    Apart from Surfin' Safari, which was mono only, the Beach Boys did turn in stereo masters on all of their early albums up until 1965. The Beach Boys Today! was the first LP for which they only delivered a mono master.


    The stereo editions of Surfin' USA, Surfer Girl, Little Deuce Coupe, Shut Down Vol. 2, All Summer Long, Beach Boys Christmas Album and Beach Boys Concert were all mixed in stereo by their own preferred engineer, Chuck Britz, ostensibly under the group's supervision.


    Brian may or may not have been present for those mixing sessions - evidence suggests that he trusted Chuck's skills enough to let him prepare those mixes on his own - but the group held onto their multitrack tapes and delivered stereo masters to Capitol, rather than allowing Capitol to prepare their own stereo versions. Later, when Brian was only delivering mono masters, Capitol would prepare the Duophonic pseudo stereo editions for the stereo market, says Alan Boyd, producer and Beach Boys' archivist.


    The Beach Boys' practice of double-tracking their vocals really lends itself to stereo mixes. Split left and right, as they are on a lot of those early stereo versions, those doubled vocal parts can really envelop the listener, surrounding them with Wilsons, Loves and Jardines!


    All of the newer stereo mixes on these remastered albums (The Beach Boys Today!, Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!), The Beach Boys' Party, Pet Sounds and Smiley Smile) were all done by Mark Linett on behalf of the Beach Boys.

    Stereo Mix Produced By Mark Linett Under The Supervision Of Brian Wilson


    The ultimate pressing of The Beach Boys' iconic album from Analogue Productions!
    Pet Sounds, the 11th studio album by The Beach Boys, is acclaimed by critics
    and musicians alike as one of the most influential works in the history of popular
    music. Brian Wilson wrote and composed almost all of the songs - mono
    mixes created under Wilson's supervision were how the surf rockin' California
    crew rose to fame, and now Analogue Productions brings them to you with THE
    definitive Pet Sounds reissue on 200-gram vinyl at 45 RPM pressed at Quality
    Record Pressings. You get to choose - either the mono or stereo album version,
    or both!


    The reception for our previously-issued 33 1/3 version drew praise from reviewer
    Michael Fremer of AnalogPlanet.com who wrote: "The instrumental separation
    and front-to-back layering is nothing short of astonishing compared to the pleasing
    mush offered up by other editions." Acclaimed mastering engineer Kevin
    Gray has been able to extract details heretofore uncaptured from the tape with
    Brian Wilson's original mono mix "and present it in a way that is pleasing and
    natural to the ear," wrote Lee Dempsey, for Endless Summer Quarterly.


    Our stereo version was mixed from an assembled digital multi-track master that
    synced the original 4-track master instrumental with the 4 or 8-track vocal overdub
    master. The stereo mix was mixed to 15 ips 1/4" analog tape with SR noise reduction.


    Even better, the 45 RPM versions of this historical musical masterpiece makes your
    cartridge a near-perfect tracker by way of reduction of inner-groove distortion, a
    clear sonic advantage. You get two 200-gram LPs in a beautiful tip-on gatefold
    jacket from Stoughton Printing.


    Pet Sounds is famous for its use of multiple layers of unorthodox instrumentation as
    well as other cutting edge audio techniques for its time. Conventional keyboards
    and guitars were combined with exotic touches of orchestrated strings, bicycle
    bells, buzzing organs, harpsichords, flutes, Theremin, Hawaiian-sounding string instruments,
    Coca-Cola cans, barking dogs, and more. This classic has some of the
    group's most stunning melodies - "Wouldn't It Be Nice," "God Only Knows," "Caroline
    No," and "Sloop John B" (the last of which wasn't originally intended to go on
    the album) are the well-known hits, but equally worthy are "You Still Believe in Me,"
    "Don't Talk," "I Know There's an Answer," and "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times."


    VH-1 named Pet Sounds as the No. 3 album in the Top 100 Albums in Rock 'n'
    Roll History, as judged in a poll of musicians, executives and journalists. It's been
    ranked No. 1 in several music magazines' lists of the greatest albums of all time,
    including NME, The Times and Mojo Magazine. It was ranked No. 2 in Rolling
    Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.

    Pet Sounds (Mono) (200 Gram 45 RPM)


    Ranked 2/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time!


    Mono


    Lacquer Plating By Gary Salstrom


    200-Gram Vinyl Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    Deluxe Tip-On Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearant Audio


    Stereo Mix Produced By Mark Linett Under The Supervision Of Brian Wilson


    The ultimate pressing of The Beach Boys' iconic album from Analogue Productions!
    Pet Sounds, the 11th studio album by The Beach Boys, is acclaimed by critics
    and musicians alike as one of the most influential works in the history of popular
    music. Brian Wilson wrote and composed almost all of the songs - mono
    mixes created under Wilson's supervision were how the surf rockin' California
    crew rose to fame, and now Analogue Productions brings them to you with THE
    definitive Pet Sounds reissue on 200-gram vinyl at 45 RPM pressed at Quality
    Record Pressings. You get to choose - either the mono or stereo album version,
    or both!


    The reception for our previously-issued 33 1/3 version drew praise from reviewer
    Michael Fremer of AnalogPlanet.com who wrote: "The instrumental separation
    and front-to-back layering is nothing short of astonishing compared to the pleasing
    mush offered up by other editions." Acclaimed mastering engineer Kevin
    Gray has been able to extract details heretofore uncaptured from the tape with
    Brian Wilson's original mono mix "and present it in a way that is pleasing and
    natural to the ear," wrote Lee Dempsey, for Endless Summer Quarterly.


    Our stereo version was mixed from an assembled digital multi-track master that
    synced the original 4-track master instrumental with the 4 or 8-track vocal overdub
    master. The stereo mix was mixed to 15 ips 1/4" analog tape with SR noise reduction.


    Even better, the 45 RPM versions of this historical musical masterpiece makes your
    cartridge a near-perfect tracker by way of reduction of inner-groove distortion, a
    clear sonic advantage. You get two 200-gram LPs in a beautiful tip-on gatefold
    jacket from Stoughton Printing.


    Pet Sounds is famous for its use of multiple layers of unorthodox instrumentation as
    well as other cutting edge audio techniques for its time. Conventional keyboards
    and guitars were combined with exotic touches of orchestrated strings, bicycle
    bells, buzzing organs, harpsichords, flutes, Theremin, Hawaiian-sounding string instruments,
    Coca-Cola cans, barking dogs, and more. This classic has some of the
    group's most stunning melodies - "Wouldn't It Be Nice," "God Only Knows," "Caroline
    No," and "Sloop John B" (the last of which wasn't originally intended to go on
    the album) are the well-known hits, but equally worthy are "You Still Believe in Me,"
    "Don't Talk," "I Know There's an Answer," and "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times."


    VH-1 named Pet Sounds as the No. 3 album in the Top 100 Albums in Rock 'n'
    Roll History, as judged in a poll of musicians, executives and journalists. It's been
    ranked No. 1 in several music magazines' lists of the greatest albums of all time,
    including NME, The Times and Mojo Magazine. It was ranked No. 2 in Rolling
    Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.

    That Rich, Humid, Giant Sax Tone Blooms Like On Few Other Webster Recordings


    Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio


    200-Gram Gatefold 45 RPM Double LP Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    ...Webster's trademark sensual sound is on full display and, of course, he's backed by Montoliu, an outstanding Spanish piano veteran who accompanied all the great jazz artists passing through Europe...This is one of the first releases by Analogue Productions pressed at their new in-house pressing plant Quality Record Pressings, and the record bears a close resemblance in appearance to records from Pallas - beautiful looking and perfectly quiet...The superb 200-gram LP comes in a rice paper sleeve and jacket of heavy cardboard...Highest Recommendation. Recording = 10/10; Music = 8.5/10 - Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi+, Issue 81


    This recording was made 10 months before Ben Webster's death in 1972. Webster, who had left the United States in 1965 to settle in Europe - first in Copenhagen and then in Amsterdam - was visiting fellow musician and friend Tete Montoliu in Barcelona. Webster and pianist Montoliu went back a ways, having played together regularly in Webster's Copenhagen days. In fact, Montoliu cited Webster and Don Byas as his two chief musical influences. Webster and Montoliu understood each other deeply, and their comfort with on another is palpable in this recording. Their accompaniment of one another is seamless. On board with these two is Montoliu's regular working trio-mates, Eric Peter on bass and Peer Wyboris on drums.


    There's no shortage of Webster's trademark breathy, fat tenor tone here. In fact, given the sparse arrangement, that rich, humid, giant sax blooms like on few other recordings. Highlights include Ben's Blues, Sweet Georgia Brown, The Man I Love and Don't Blame Me.

    Texas Hurricane (45 RPM)

    Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Sterling Sound


    What if. What if everything that you have come to know and worship about the sonic superiority of Quality Record Pressings LPs could be brought to bear on one of the rockingest powerhouses of blues guitar who ever lived?


    Then your wish is granted. We're about to rock your world with the greatest Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute ever reissued: Six of Vaughan's most classic album titles combined in the ultimate box set for ultimate blues and guitar fanatics!


    With his astonishingly accomplished guitar playing, Stevie Ray Vaughan ignited the blues revival of the '80s. Vaughan drew equally from bluesmen like Albert King, Otis Rush and Hubert Sumlin and rock & roll players like Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack, as well as the stray jazz guitarist like Kenny Burrell, developing a uniquely eclectic and fiery style that sounded like no other guitarist, regardless of genre. Vaughan bridged the gap between blues and rock like no other artist had since the late '60s. For about seven years, Stevie Ray Vaughan was the leading light in American blues, consistently selling out concerts while his albums regularly went gold. His tragic death in 1990 only emphasized his influence in blues and American rock & roll.


    This is classic Stevie Ray Vaughan, meticulously remastered from the analog tapes by New York's Sterling Sound. In each set you'll receive Texas Flood, Couldn't Stand the Weather, Soul to Soul, In Step, plus the posthumous classics Family Style and The Sky Is Crying.


    Those of you familiar with our previous LP box sets - Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk, Creedence Clearwater Revival - and soon to come, The Doors - know how deluxe these sets are. From the detailed liner notes to the rarest photographs, these sets will truly be gems.


    The truly luxurious - and ultimate - listening experience can be had on 45 RPM LP. With so few songs on each side and at 45 RPM, your cartridge will capture every last winsome note. The box set will be pressed on 200 gram vinyl at QRP, lauded for its vinyl manufacturing excellence.


    Each LP set will come housed in deluxe gatefold jackets that include rarely published, intimate photos - a look inside the career of a legend whose death at age 35 shocked the music world. A few statistics showcase Vaughan's success and musical influence: His debut album Texas Flood, reached No. 38 on the charts, crossing over to rock radio stations. The album's succesor, Couldn't Stand the Weather, released in May 1984, reached No. 31 on the charts; by the end of 1985 it went gold. Vaughan and his band, Double Trouble, recorded their third album, Soul to Soul, released in August 1985, and it reached No. 34 on the charts.

    Willie's 1978 Take On His Favorite Pop Standards


    Includes His Classic Versions Of "Stardust" And "Georgia On My Mind"


    Mastered From The Original Analog Tapes By Bernie Grundman


    200-Gram Vinyl Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    Heavyweight Gatefold Tip-On Old-Style Jacket From Stoughton Printing




    Willie Nelson has long been honored as a genuine legend,
    and his songs and concerts are loved worldwide. Though
    his roots are in country, Willie's musical influences are as
    broad as the Texas skies, unlimited to any one genre.


    "These are my favorite songs. My favorite all-time songs,"
    Willie says. "I knew there were millions of people who liked
    these songs and would love to hear them again. I grew up
    with them... they're some of the first songs I learned to play."
    We bring you this distinctive reissue housed in a heavyweight
    tip-on, old style gatefold jacket from Stoughton Printing.
    Unmatched quality, unmatched sound - that's the way
    Analogue Productions rolls.


    Willie ultimately scored big-time with this quintessential
    addition to his album catalog. The songs - "Moonlight in
    Vermont," "All of Me," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore"
    - are lovingly arranged here by Booker T. Jones of Green
    Onions fame and recorded in Nelson's inimitable style in
    Emmylou Harris' house.


    Booker T's trademark sound set the mood for the sessions.
    Willie and cohorts mine a mellow groove here, sounding
    as if Willie is at home, sitting on his porch overlooking the
    beautiful Texas hill country.


    Nelson's Stardust remains a genius-level creation as well
    as the icon's most commercially successful release, a
    truly gorgeous record infused with ultimate respect for
    composers and lyrics and many of the finest performances
    of Willie's career.

    Sleeved In A Tip-On Jacket


    MoFi may have the rest of their catalogue, but Chad Kassem's coup is grabbing this album, the band's second, from 1974. Why? Because it kicks off with their anthem, the inimitable, riff-driven, majestic 'Sweet Home Alabama' - one of the greatest air-guitar/road trip songs ever. By this time, the band was a mite slicker but just as unapologetically Confederate-with-a-capital 'C' as on their debut. The opener does overshadow the rest, but the album serves up what the LP title promises in 'The Needle And The Spoon,' which sounds like 'Sweet Home Alabama II.' Musically, this nestles alongside Little Feat and The Allman Brothers Band - deservedly high praise. - Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News, April 2014


    Get ready for some Southern hospitality, courtesy of Analogue Productions, Quality Record Pressings and one of the hardest-rocking bands to ever grace a stage! With a catalog of over 60 albums and sales beyond 30 million, Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.


    This Lynyrd Skynyrd 1974 album follows the success of Free Bird and Gimme Three Steps from their 1973 debut and features their biggest hit single, Sweet Home Alabama, an answer to Neil Young's Southern Man and Alabama. The song reached No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in August 1974. Second Helping also featured Don't Ask Me No Questions, Workin' for MCA and Call Me The Breeze, the latter of which includes an acclaimed piano solo. Backed by a tight rhythm section and the mighty three-guitar attack of Allen Collins, Ed King and Gary Rossington, singer Ronnie Van Zant turns in a legendary performance on the urgent blues ballad I Need You, the cautionary The Needle And The Spoon and The Ballad Of Curtis Loew. 200-gram vinyl, mastering by Kevin Gray, lacquer plating by QRP's Gary Salstrom, heavy, tip-on gatefold jacket.

    Passion - Music for The Last Temptation of Christ was released a year after Martin Scorsese's controversy-laden film and tends to be regarded as a work in its own right rather than just being a movie soundtrack. It features additional music than was included in the film; this extra material was the result of Peter continuing to record and to resolve "unfinished ideas," hence the later arrival of the record.

Lanois went on to co-produce the So and US albums with Peter. Birdy is the soundtrack to the Alan Parker movie of the same name - the tale of a Vietnam vet who harbors Icarus-like ambitions to fly - it finds Peter flexing his creative muscles free of any commercial pressures.

    45 RPM 200-Gram Gatefold Double LP Reissue


    Remastered By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound From The Original Analog Tapes


    Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings!


    Tip-On Gatefold Jacket By Stoughton Printing


    What would American southern rock be without the scorching sounds of Lynyrd Skynyrd? Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings have already brought you exceptional reissues of Second Helping and Nuthin' Fancy. Back to the well then, we go, for two more Skynyrd favorites - the epic Gimme Back My Bullets and the band's bluesy, hard-rocking 1973 debut Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd.


    Remastered from the original analog tapes by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, our Analogue Productions reissue of Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd is the ultimate in luxurious reproduction and unbeatable sound. 200-gram plating and pressing by Quality Record Pressings, and a tip-on Stoughton Printing jacket round out the package.


    The undeniable youthful hunger of Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd pumps through the subtly witty songs, all strongly rooted in Southern heritage and working-class values. Independent of the most-requested tune in history, Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd bleeds red, white, and blue and encapsulates the wondrous dichotomies of Southern rock.


    Months before Lynyrd Skynyrd enjoyed the privilege of recording its debut, the band entered its seventh year of playing juke joints and assorted dives in a bootstraps effort to land a deal. During a residency at a hardscrabble Georgian club, the group's rambunctious rock, swaggering attitude, blue-collar determination, and country-reared cadence caught the ear of producer/musician Al Kooper. The rest is history. Kooper inked the ensemble to his new imprint and hustled everyone into a Georgia studio for sessions that occurred March through April 1973.


    It's at the Studio One space that Lynyrd Skynyrd flashed scampering tempos, cutting give-and-take riffs, loose barroom lines, and off-the-cuff vocalese that entirely separated its approach from that of the more jazz-styled affairs of the Allman Brothers Band. Confederate flags, empty whiskey bottles, cocked pistols, rotgut habits, scorned women, and prodigal drifters populate the songs, nearly all written from first-person perspectives that add to their genuineness. Prophetic touches - twinkling piano notes, soaring mellotrons, a one-off harmonica - provide ideal complements to the intertwined guitar melodies and singer Ronnie Van Zant's comfortable gruffness and way of expressing local customs.

    Head Hunters (45 RPM)

    Herbie Hancock's Masterpiece, Now Cut At 45 RPM!


    The Second Highest-Selling Jazz Album Of All Time!


    Mastered at Sterling Sound by Ryan Smith


    Stoughton Printing Old-Style Deluxe Film-Lamination Tip-On Jacket


    Double LP 200-Gram Discs Plated and Pressed at Quality Record Pressings!


    There are few artists in the music industry who have had more influence on acoustic and electronic jazz and R&B than Herbie Hancock.


    In 1963, Miles Davis invited Hancock to join the Miles Davis Quintet. During his five years with Davis, Herbie recorded many classics with the jazz legend including ESP, Nefertiti, and Sorcerer, and later on, he made appearances on Davis' groundbreaking In a Silent Way and Bitches Brew.


    Hancock's own solo career blossomed on Blue Note, with classic albums including Maiden Voyage, Empyrean Isles and Speak Like a Child. After leaving Davis' fold, Herbie put together a new band called The Headhunters and, in 1973 in San Francisco, recorded Head Hunters.


    Head Hunters became not only Hancock's best-selling album but also the second highest selling jazz album of all time (at last RIAA count). It was in 1973 that he gathered a new band to combine electric music with funk, perhaps best exemplified in the pop music of Sly Stone.


    Hancock took over all synthesizer duties, along with Fender Rhodes and clavinet and was backed by bass and drums. The opening bars of Watermelon Man with Bill Summers blowing into a beer bottle, along with the band's funky grooves and new electric sounds, captured the crossover fans who had otherwise avoided buying jazz records.


    Head Hunters was a pivotal point in Hancock's career, bringing him into the vanguard of jazz fusion. Hancock had pushed avant-garde boundaries on his own albums and with Miles Davis, but he had never devoted himself to the groove as he did on Head Hunters. Drawing heavily from Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield, and James Brown, Hancock developed deeply funky, even gritty, rhythms over which he soloed on electric synthesizers, bringing the instrument to the forefront of jazz. It had all of the sensibilities of jazz, particularly in the way it wound off into long improvisations, but its rhythms were firmly planted in funk, soul, and R&B, giving it a mass appeal that made it the biggest-selling jazz album of all time (a record which was later broken).


    Jazz purists, of course, decried the experiments at the time, but Head Hunters still sounds fresh and vital four decades after its initial release, and its genre-bending proved vastly influential on not only jazz, but funk, soul, and hip-hop.

Expertly remastered by Kevin Gray, lacquer plating by master technician Gary Salstrom, heavy cardboard gatefold jacket with vibrantly reproduced original artwork. How does it get any better? As the Ultimate-Guitar.com put it: Most hard rock bands would give their left arm for a record that swaggers and hits as hard as Nuthin' Fancy.


    Second Helping brought Lynyrd Skynyrd mass success and for the follow-up they offered Nuthin' Fancy. It was a self-deprecating title for a record that may have offered more of the same, at least on the surface, but was still nearly peerless as a Southern rock record. The biggest difference with this record is that the band, through touring, has become heavier and harder, fitting right in with the heavy album rock bands of the mid-'70s. The second notable difference is that Ronnie Van Zant may have been pressed for material, since there are several songs here that are just good generic rockers. But he and Skynyrd prove that what makes a great band great is how they treat generic material, and Skynyrd makes the whole of Nuthin' Fancy feel every bit as convincing as their first two records.

    Breaking Silence (45 RPM)


    Mastered For 45 RPM By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio From The Original Analog Master Tapes!


    200-Gram, 45 RPM Vinyl Pressing By Quality Record Pressings!


    Tip-On Gatefold Jacket With Janis' Pure Voice And Personal Songs Spread Across Four Sides!


    This album finds Janis' voice in its purest, most vital form ever. The tracks were recorded as live as possible without sounding retro. This 1992 all-analogue recording, praised as much for the artist's too infrequently heard talents as for its recorded dynamics, is now available on the medium that is a natural: 200-gram vinyl!


    The audiophile LP version reflects what the two top bibles of high-end audio decree as an impeccable production that has come to be regarded as a high-fidelity reference. Matched with Ian's very personal songs, delivered in a voice that draws you in close in confidence, Breaking Silence is one of the very few recordings of recent years that by reproducing a pure analogue sound, has attained true audiophile status.


    Technical Data:


    Tracks were recorded at Nightingale Studio on a Studer 820, 24-track machine, 30 IPS, non-dolby, at the elevation of +6/250 nu using Ampex 499 tape.


    Included among the mics used on the recording dates were: Neumann M-49, AKG C-12, Telefunken 251, Sheffield C-9 and a custom built tube direct box on the bass. Janis' vocal was recorded using a Telefunken U-47 and a Mastering Lab mic preamp, linked with series-one Monster Cable direct to the back of the multi-track machine with no EQ or Limiting.


    The album was mixed at Bill Schnee Studio to an Ampex ATR 1/2 machine, at 30 IPS, non-dolby, at the elevation of +3/250 nu on Ampex 499 tape. The reverb on the album was an EMT tube plate used along with natural room sounds captured in the recording. During the mixing of the album, Some People's Lives was recorded direct to two-track using the same vocal chain as above and Telefunken 251's on the piano. Take number two was used as the album cut. The album was mixed using Mastering Lab modified Tannoy SGM-10's powered by Sherwood-Sax mono-block tube amps.


    Produced, engineered and mixed by Jeff Balding.

    Lacquers Plated By Gary Salstrom And Pressed On 200-Gram Vinyl At Quality Record Pressings!


    The jewel in the Living Stereo crown. Enchantment awaits within! Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony convey the listener on a magic carpet of Living Stereo sound to mythic Arabia and China, guided by two of Russia's greatest orchestral masters.


    This, like the Respighi, is considered one of the very best recordings by Reiner, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and RCA's crew. A disc of supple and sensuous performances, the sound alternately shimmers and stuns with the clarity of its definition and intensity of its climaxes.

    A Historic Record - Recorded Just Four Years Removed From The Dawn Of The Analog Tape Era!


    Remastered By Ryan Smith At Sterling Sound From The Original Analog Tapes

    Gatefold Old-School Tip-on On Jacket By Stoughton Printing Plated And Pressed At Quality Record Pressings!


    Named A 2015 Record To Die For By Stereophile Magazine.


    Remastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound from the original analog tapes, the record was plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings. The depth and space when those rich chromatic harmonies create a wide and well-defined soundscape, the timbre of the orchestra as a whole as well as individual instruments, and the thick, wooden sound of Wendell Marshall's bass are among the aural pleasures provided when you drop a needle on this platter; expect goose bumps. - Music = 5/5; Sonics = 4.5/5 - Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound, May-June 2015.


    I chose the CD reissue of this album as one of my R2D4s for 2012, but now from Chad Kassem's Analogue Productions comes this QRP LP, and it's an occasion for popping corks. Released in 1950, this was Ellington's first LP, and he used the new medium to stretch out four of his biggest hits. The arrangements are jaw-droppingly gorgeous and the sound just slightly less so. Recorded by Fred Plaut, who later miked Kind of Blue and other Columbia classics, it has the dynamics, depth, and in-your-face tonal realism of a modern (mono) audiophile thumper. Among the best jazz albums ever. - Fred Kaplan, for Stereophile - Records To Die For - February 2015.


    This new re-issue slays my vintage copy in every way. Every dimension of the recording was much better...dynamics, harmonics, frequency response, detail, jump...all just leaped out at me! The recording sounded like it had been made that morning...absolutely fresh-sounding. No veiling. No roll-off. In fact, it's so good that it doesn't matter that this is a mono recording! Listen to it on a great turntable...you'll hear mono that fools you into thinking that it's not mono. Just wait until you hear Yvonne Lanauze sing, Mood Indigo amigos, after a long instrumental build-up...she'll take you there! ... The pressing itself was impeccable: flat, and free of noise, tics and pops...a genuine masterpiece of the pressing-plant arts. The Hyperion OCL, the finest cartridge that I've ever heard, revealed how superbly these grooves were carved! Commendable, reference-grade analog...very, very close to master tape sound. Very damned close! Kissing cousins close! Hell, maybe even closer than that. In fact, I now consider the Analogue Productions re-issue of Masterpieces by Ellington to be one of the very finest Jazz records ever released. (Sorry Miles! Move over, Kind of Blue!). - David W. Robinson, editor-in-chief, Positive Feedback Online.


    Most highly recommended (the record is now on the QRP presses). It's one of my 'Records to Die For' in the February 2015 Stereophile. A true classic both musically and sonically and a historical work of art you can now own. - Music = 11/11; Sound = 11/11 - Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com.

    All-Analog Mastering By Ryan K. Smith At Sterling Sound From The Original Tapes


    Deluxe Tip-On Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing


    On 1989's In Step, Vaughan found his own songwriting voice, blending blues, soul, and rock in unique ways, and writing with startling emotional honesty. Yes, there are a few covers, all well chosen, but the heart of the album rests in the songs he cowrote with Doyle Bramhall, the man who penned the Soul to Soul highlight "Change It." Fueled by a desire to make up for lost time and delight in his reawakened commitment to life and sobriety, Vaughan turned in what many consider his greatest artistic statement, an album ensconced in sweat, soul, determination, and not an ounce of filler.


    "Travis Walk" offers a heady rush of flat-picking, "The House is Rockin'" is full-tilt roots-boogie, "Let Me Love You Baby" and "Leave My Girl Alone" are sweet blues epiphanies, and the nine-minute instrumental "Riviera Paradise" is a truly soulful mix of blues and jazz. By now, just a year before his untimely death, Vaughan had also tamed his bawling voice into a rich instrument. In short, this 1989 session is Vaughan at his artistic peak.


    In Step remains one of the five greatest blues records of the past quarter century. There's not a link in this chain that wasn't absolute first-rate. The absolute best that money can buy. We're passionate about the blues AND Stevie Ray and the passion shows up here in spades.

    Double 1990 Grammy Award Winner: Best Contemporary Blues Album, Best Rock Instrumental Performance - "D/FW"


    Stevie Ray had made music beyond the powers of most musicians but for this 1990 studio collaboration he returned to the things he loved: upbeat music and working with the brother he idolized his whole life. In his early years, Stevie Ray Vaughan often remarked that he would like to do an album with his brother. He fulfilled that wish in his very last studio performance, which was released nearly a month after his death. The liner notes end with "Thanks Mama V. for letting us play." With slick production from Nile Rodgers and employing neither guitarist's band (Double Trouble nor the Fabulous Thunderbirds), this is bluesy, but far from purist. Jimmie makes his vocal debut on "White Boots"
    and "Good Texan" and the brothers blur the lines between their expected guitar styles - Stevie sometimes going for a less sustained twang, Jimmie moving into Albert King territory.


    As we did with our vaunted box set reissues, Texas Hurricane, again Analogue Productions is bringing you the finest-sounding Stevie Ray Vaughan collections ever preserved on 200-gram vinyl. Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound cut the lacquers for the LPs using the ultimate VMS 80 cutting lathe. Gary Salstrom handled the plating and the vinyl was pressed of course at Quality Record Pressings.
