Prestige Series Gold Cartridge
The Prestige (and upscale Reference) cartridges from Grado are the first released since the elder Grado's retirement, but they mark an evolution, not dramatic change, of the classic Grado style. There are three basic levels in the Prestige lineup: Black/Green, Blue/Red, and Silver/Gold. In each of these pairings, the latter model is the same as the former, but is able to meet more astringent test specifications. The Green, for instance, is taken from the top 15% of the Black models production.
The newly redesigned Silver1 and Gold1 have had their coil design reconfigured, and the effective moving mass of their generating system has been reduced by 17%. The Silver1 and gold1 models use a four piece OTL cantilever technology, ultra-high purity long crystal (UHPLC) oxygen free copper wire in the coils and Grado's specially designed elliptical diamond mounted on a brass bushing. The Gold1 model is selected from the Silver1 production run and meets higher test specifications. Approximately 5% of the production run meet these standards and become Gold1 models.
What People are saying about the Gold... "The Prestige Gold's sound was readily identifiable, but after just a few seconds it didn't matter much, so engaging were the results."
- Wayne Garcia - The Absolute Sound
"It's a definite Best Buy!"
- Hi Fi Choice / Alan Sircom
"Beefheart's Clear Spot, the undoing of many an under-performing cartridges, didn't faze the Grado." - Hi Fi Choice / Alan Sircom "It was lively and detailed but never edgy on vocal sibilants, and didn't over-emphasis leading edges on acoustic guitar."
- Hi Fi Choice / Alan Sircom
"While the Prestige Gold cannot provide quite the same ultra-refined, take-you-to-the-mountaintop listening experiences that big buck moving coils can, it takes you a long way up the path toward analog excellence, and for a pennies-on-the-dollar price."

The British progressive rock band Alan Parsons Project was active between 1975 and 1990. The Project consisted of Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons surrounded by a varying number of session musicians.
Englishman Alan Parsons met Scotsman Eric Woolfson in the canteen of Abbey Road Studios in the summer of 1974.
Parsons had already acted as assistant engineer on The Beatles' 'Abbey Road' and 'Let It Be' and had recently engineered Pink Floyd's 'The Dark Side of the Moon'.
Woolfson, a songwriter and composer, was working as a session pianist.
'Pyramid' is the third album by The Alan Parsons Project and was originally released in 1978. The album contains numerous references to the Egyptian pyramids, hence the name.1. Voyager (2:25)

OVSE-MOV-631xAlan Parsons Project
Gaudi was the tenth and final Alan Parsons Project studio album released in 1987. Inspired as he was by the Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi, Alan Parsons built a truly passionate concept album. Money Talks and Closer To Heaven, which were used in episodes of Miami Vice are, without a doubt, the tracks that sonically define this record. But then there's Paseo de Gracia, a fully orchestrated track in the typical vein of Alan Parsons Project, which can be counted as an exquisite instrumental masterpiece. The masterfully cut Gaudi album simply is yummy for the ears. We are extremely proud to extend the ever expanding catalogue by releasing number eight of the Project's discography!1.

Ready Player One: Original Motion Picture SoundtrackThe hotly-anticipated soundtrack to "Ready Player One" - Steven Spielberg's science fiction action adventure, based on Ernest Cline's best-selling book of the same name is set for release on vinyl via Water Tower Music. It features a brand-new score by Grammy award-winning composer Alan Silvestri (The Avengers, Back to The Future Trilogy, Forrest Gump)
The film's director/producer Steven Spielberg says, "While all sorts of culturally iconic references populate Ready Player One, the score that Alan Silvestri composed is completely and intoxicatingly original. It's bound together by multiple themes that identify plot and character and is infused by such percussive adrenaline and soaring strings that Alan has made Ready Player One appear to fly. I think his score is fantastic."
Though "Ready Player One" marks their first collaboration on a film directed by Spielberg, Alan Silvestri has scored a number of films produced by the filmmaker, including the "Back to the Future" films. The composer says, "An invitation to travel arrived just about a year ago, not just to a place, but to a time. Actually, to a number of times-primarily the year 2045, along with a few stops in the 80s. A rather detailed map had been drawn by Ernest Cline and the Captain of the voyage, none other than Mr. Spielberg himself. What could one possibly do or say? Pencil in hand, one firmly fastens one's seatbelt, says 'Sir, Yes, Sir,' and prepares for the trip of a lifetime."1. The Oasis

SPCO-SPE-9599xThe Alan Parsons Project
Eye in the Sky (Speakers Corner)
Unimpressed and untouched by the glorification of individuals so typical for the music business, the Alan Parsons Project proved that even without spectacular light shows, rock celebrities in the band or self-composed songs it was possible to rise to stardom. Alan Parsons, who first took up an apprenticeship as a sound engineer at EMI and was later responsible for several Paul McCartney productions and the Pink Floyd album 'Dark Side Of The Moon' at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, drew upon his experience in order to further his solo career. While the co-producer Eric Woolfson wrote songs, Parsons who had an uncanny feeling for sound conjured up synthetic and natural sounds.
As with all albums from the early years, 'Eye In The Sky' is inspired by important topics of the times. True to the 'no-future lifestyle' of the 80s, the songs impart a somewhat depressive character which serves as a stark contrast to the steely rock rhythms, free from electronic gimmicks. In addition one finds addictive harmony in the vocal polyphony ('Gemini'), blaring brass with a Spanish rhythm ('Silence And I') and a velvety string sound ('Old And Wise'). All in all a great achievement by the British wizard of sound at the mixing console.

About Speakers Corner
At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.
During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.
A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.
We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.
We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.
To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.1. Sirius

Released two years after their big-selling Eye In The Sky album, Ammonia Avenue from 1984 offers beautiful tunes, with intelligent lyrical content. The theme of the album is the communication breakdown of mankind in a society turning ever more antisocial.

OVSE-MOV-588xAlan Parsons Project
Alan Parsons Project is well known for building their albums around certain socio-demographic themes. Stereotomy (1985) deals with the way in which modern society molds the personality. At the time, Stereotomy was one of the first completely digitally recorded pieces of music, sporting a rare 'DDD' code on its first release.
The album is coherently balanced, its synthesized and orchestrated songs completing each another. The high octane Where's The Walrus? is a response to 'Mr. Laser Beam', analogy of Mr. Lee Abrams, an American radio personality. He accused the band having gone 'flat' in their last albums: he asked them 'Where's The Walrus?', meaning 'Where are the classic songs like The Beatles' I Am The Walrus?'.1. Stereotomy

Predator: Original Motion Picture SoundtrackPressed On Blood Red And "Predator Dreads" Blue Splatter Vinyl
Limited To 1000 Copies
Sound Taken From Intrada's 2012 Complete And Definitive Edition Of The Score
Alan Silvestri's masterful score to Predator has been one of the most sought-after action film soundtracks of all time, sparking no less than three limited-edition CD releases that all successively sold out in short order. And it's little wonder; fresh from back-to-back triumphs with Romancing the Stone and Back to the Future, Silvestri employs a full orchestra, occasional, deft electronic touches, and - most of all - bruising percussion to fashion a score every bit as muscular and hard-hitting as the film itself. Among the truly inspired touches are the eerie, descending strings as the Predator descends to earth, the propulsive military march that introduces the commando team, and the simple trumpet fanfare in He's My Friend that laments the loss of a fallen comrade. Yet, because the film came out in the late-80s during the premature death of vinyl, Predator has NEVER been released on LP till now.
Real Gone is proud to present Alan Silvestri's score to Predator in a double-LP set featuring newly commissioned, custom front cover art by Rafa Wechterowicz that captures the Predator in all its ugly mother******ness, with additional stills from the production decorating the gatefold package. The sound to our release is taken from Intrada's 2012 complete and definitive edition of the score, and it comes on blood red and "Predator Dreads" blue splatter vinyl limited to 1000 copies.

This Is ItPsychedelic music all began with the tiniest possible
bang: a minuscule pressing of a self-produced LP by
Zen Buddhist scholar Alan Watts. In one cosmic flash
of inspiration and group improvisation, the next two
decades of musical innovation was pre-supposed:
psychedelic rock, spiritual jazz, and even new age. As
this micro pressing barely made it out of the ashram,
it was his writings that actually spread his ideas, usually
through osmosis: he was profoundly influential on
the beat poets and the subsequent counter-culture.
He became the forebear of '60s counter-culture's
spirituality, much as William Burroughs was the
forebear of its hedonism.
Released in 1962, This Is It is an imaginative cacophony
of percussion, non-verbal chanting, and free-flowing
expression, punctuated occasionally by leisurely passes
at a terrestrial piano, marimba, or french horn. It is
at once, experimental, intellectual, and experiential.
Three years before Ken Kesey's inaugural Acid Test,
This Is It! constitutes the first transmission for a tunedin
counterculture of hippies, beats, and psychedelic
revolutionaries of all stripes.1. Love You

For the most part, 1979's Eve is somewhat overlooked as being one of the Alan Parsons Project's finest work, when in fact it involves some of this group's most intricate songs. The album's concept deals with the female's overpowering effect on man. Each song touches on her ability to dissect the male ego, especially through sexual means, originating with Eve's tempting Adam in the beginning of time.
Not only does this idea gain strength as the album progresses, but a musical battle of the sexes begins to arise through each song. The gorgeous "You Won't Be There" spotlights man's insecurity. Sung by Dave Townsend, its melodramatic feel sets a perfect tone. The classically enhanced "Winding Me Up" follows suit, based on a woman's ability to dominate her mate and opening up with sound of a wind-up doll being cranked. Other gems include the bitter but forceful "Damned If I Do" sung by Lenny Zakatek, and the dominating fury of "Lucifer," a powerful instrumental. Even the loutish "You Lie Down with Dogs" bears wit with its gender inclined mud-slinging.
The female vocalists, Lesley Duncan and Clare Torry do a splendid job of representing the females point of view throughout the album. Not only does Eve solidify its main idea, but the songs are highly entertaining with catchy rhythms and intelligent lyrics. Musically, the tempo appealingly switches back and forth from slow to quick, as does the temperament of the album. Somehow, Eve is dismissed as one of this band's greatest efforts, when in fact it's one of their finest marriages of both concept and music.1. Lucifer

I Robot (Awaiting Repress)Alan Parsons Project I Robot on Numbered Limited Edition 180g 45RPM 2LP From Mobile Fidelity
Perfectionism, Innovation, Complexities, and Reference-Grade Production Make Alan Parsons Project's Conceptual I Robot a Timeless Classic: Sci-Fi Arrangements Steeped In Drama and Moodiness
More Music, More Information, More Detail, More Nuance, More Everything: Mobile Fidelity 180g 45RPM 2LP Set the Definitive-Sounding Analog Version of 1977 Audiophile Standard
A Demonstration Disc for the Ages: Immaculate Highs and Lows, Supreme Spaciousness, See-Through Transparency, 3D Imaging, Wider Grooves on System-Testing Pressing
Audiophiles needn't any introduction to the Alan Parsons Project's I Robot. Engineered by Parsons after he performed the same duties on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, the 1977 record reigns as a disc whose taut bass, crisp highs, clean production, and seemingly limitless dynamic range are matched only by the sensational prog-rock fare helmed by the keyboardist. Not surprisingly, it's been issued myriad times. Can it be improved? Relish Mobile Fidelity's stupendous-sounding 180g 45RPM 2LP set and the question becomes irrelevant.
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, and afforded the luxurious groove space of a 45RPM LP, I Robot comes to life like never before on this numbered limited-edition reissue. Boasting immaculate highs and lows, generous spaciousness, and see-through transparency that takes you into the studio with Parsons and creative partner Eric Woolfson at Abbey Road, this super-clean edition has been lovingly restored by Mobile Fidelity engineers with the intention of demonstrating the full-range capabilities of the world's best stereo systems. Put simply, there's more music, more information, more detail, more nuance, more everything.
Savor reference-grade soundstages, immersive smoothness, sought-after instrumental separation, three-dimensional imaging, and consummate tonal balances. Able to be played back at high volumes without compromise or fatigue, the analog masterwork is a demonstration record for the ages - the likes of which are no longer being made. Longtime fans can finally rest assured knowing they don't have to pony up hundreds of dollars for older pressings - including three prior Mobile Fidelity versions on LP and CD. This is the very reason you own and invest in high-end audio gear.
Inspired by and loosely based around the Isaac Asimov stories of the same name, I Robot delves into themes of artificial intelligence and technological dominance that make the record increasingly relevant in the 21st century. Indeed, Parsons' pinnacle creation dovetailed with the ascendency of Star Wars, which itself is experiencing a rebirth in an age of self-driving cars, smart devices, and mindless automation. Lyrically, songs such as The Voice call into question human behavior - and their relationship to increasing robotic supremacy - in everyday life. Sonically, Parsons reflects the associated paranoia, dichotomy, and transformation via shifting sci-fi arrangements steeped in drama and moodiness.
I Robot's absorbing tunes also continue to fascinate due to their perfectionism and innovation. Borrowing from Pink Floyd's strategies, Parsons utilizes a looped sequence on the title track to create new downbeats. Some Other Time employs two different lead vocalists and yet gives the illusion only one is involved. Captivating strings, a piccolo trumpet, and bona fide pipe organ grace Don't Let It Show. The origins of Nucleus stem from a unique analog keyboard concoction dubbed the Projectron, devised by Parsons and electronic engineer Keith Johnson. Andrew Powell's orchestral and choral arrangements top it all off, with Total Eclipse arriving as an aptly frightening track that presages the climactic Genesis Ch. 1 V. 32.
Does man or machine win in the end? Decide with Parsons as you get lost in Mobile Fidelity's definitive pressing.
