Reviews and Commentaries for The Royal Scam

One of our good customers had this to say about some Hot Stampers he purchased recently:

  Hey Tom,   

Expectations met and exceeded! This Royal Scam sounds amazing. Granted, my current copy was an MCA repressing, but this one totally crushes it and THEN SOME.

Thanks, Tom. I will be a return customer. I’m a believer!!


And then some is right. The MCA pressings are not worth the vinyl they are made from. No early Dan album has ever sounded particularly good on that label with the exception of Gaucho, which only comes on MCA
