Letter of the Week – “I never owned a copy that had as much bottom end along with vocals that seem to jump out of my speakers.”

More Jethro Tull

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

  Hey Tom,   

Just a quick note to express my complete satisfaction with my latest purchase from Better Records.

I just received my copy of the WHS of Jethro Tull’s This Was LP. Needless to say, I have several copies of this album, both domestic
and UK versions. One is a Pink Label UK which I purchased from you a while back.

I was so completely blown away at how much better this LP sounds. Both are great, but this one is simply unbelievable.
I never owned a copy that had as much bottom end along with vocals that seem to jump out of my speakers.

Thank you again for your work finding these superior copies of albums I never thought could sound this good!

Hope to purchase again soon,
Regards
D B

Dennis,

So glad you enjoyed this copy as much as we did, and you even had a Pink Label to play against it, a record not many audiophiles own.

Stand Up and Benefit are the same way, the original pressings are not the way to go, but try telling that to the average audiophile who only buys original pressings. They can read labels and they know which are the earliest ones, but they rarely have the equipment and the listening skills to know that the right reissues are CLEARLY better, something you heard right from the start I suspect.

Thanks for your business and enjoy your Hot Stampers. We’re thrilled to hear you are thrilled!

Best, TP
