Mastered By Bernie Grundman From The Original Analog Tapes
Award-Winning Album Includes The Hits “Angel,” “Adia” And “Building A Mystery”
Three of Sarah McLachlan’s biggest pop hits mark her fourth studio album Surfacing. Released in July 1997, just as the first Lilith Fair tour hit the road, McLachlan benefitted enormously from the timing. Her face was on the cover of magazines across America and Canada; Surfacing reached No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 — a remarkable feat considering that its predecessor, Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, peaked at No. 50. Now, hear Surfacing on its definitive vinyl version — two 200-gram LPs cut at 45 RPM by legendary mastering engineer Bernie Grundman from the original analog tapes. The premium LPs plated and pressed by Gary Salstrom and the crew at Quality Record Pressings are paired with a deluxe gatefold Stoughton Printing tip-on jacket. The 45 RPM pressing gives you four sides with a reduction in groove curvature and decreased distortion as your cartridge nears the center of the record. That’s a major sonic advantage!
There’s the requisite number of gorgeously melodic and deeply heartfelt songs here, writes reviewer Jeff Bateman — the addictive “Sweet Surrender,” the Hollywood-style ballad “I Love You,” the sad, profound “Angel,” the flat-out spectacular “Witness.” “Adia” and “Angel” were Top 5 hits; “Building a Mystery” hit the Top 15 and “Sweet Surrender” became a Top 30 hit.
The album won four Juno Awards including for Album of the Year. “Building a Mystery” was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, while the instrumental-only song “Last Dance” won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance. McLachlan’s bittersweet album proves again that what she and producer Pierre Marchand release is cut from the finest of cloth. The Analogue Productions/QRP pressing reissue treatment delivers sonics and luxury packaging second to none for discerning collectors

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.
