Chet Atkins / Chet Atkins in Hollywood on Classic Records Heavy Vinyl

Sonic Grade: D

It’s been quite a while since I played the Classic pressing, but I remember it as nothing special, tonally fine but low-rez and lacking space, warmth and above all Tubey Magic.

I don’t think I’ve ever played an original that didn’t sound better, and that means that the best grade to give Classic’s pressing is probably a D for below average.

In a recent commentary we went into some detail about Bernie Grundman’s shortcomings as a mastering engineer.
