Sonic Grade: B

One of the better Speakers Corner Heavy Vinyl remasters. (Probably. It’s been a very long time since I played it.)

Speakers Corner did the album in 2003 and if memory serves I liked it and recommended it at the time. I rather doubt I could stand it now. I have much less tolerance now for the vague imaging, lack of ambience and overall lifeless quality their records invariably suffer from than I did then. (more…)

Elvis Presley – It Happened At The World’s Fair


Our White Hot Shootout Winner for 2017

  • An insanely good sounding copy: Triple Plus (A+++) on the first side, Double Plus (A++) on the second
  • If you want to know just how rich, spacious, natural and Tubey Magical an Elvis record can sound, here’s your chance to find out
  • Fairly quiet vinyl throughout — Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus – it’s unlikely any early pressing would ever play as well
  • Elvis’s early albums are rarely in audiophile playing condition, so finding these later pressings with such good sound has been a real ear opener

This pressing has the glorious sound of 1963 in its grooves. It has the kind of Tubey Magical Midrange that modern records cannot even BEGIN to reproduce. Folks, that sound is gone and it sure isn’t showing signs of coming back. If you love hearing INTO a recording, actually being able to “see” the performers, and feeling as if you are sitting in the studio with the band, this is the record for you. It’s what vintage all analog recordings are known for — this sound. (more…)

Elvis Presley – On Stage February 1970 – Our White Hot Shootout Winner for 2018


Our White Hot Shootout Winner for 2018

  • With an amazing Triple Plus (A+++) side two and an excellent Double Plus (A++) side one, this original RCA Orange Label should sound far better than any copy you’ve ever played
  • This is Elvis doing songs made famous by others, proving that he can still out-rock and out-soul practically anybody alive
  • With ten million copies sold to date, this album’s appeal has transcended its time and must be considered a true Elvis Classic
  • 4 Stars: “”The Wonder of You” might not have been “That’s All Right” or even “Heartbreak Hotel,” but it was a towering performance by a singer who could, even then, run circles around virtually anyone in the business this side of Roy Orbison.”

Of the handful of Elvis albums to ever make it to the site in Hot Stamper form, this one just may be the most fun.

We have a number of Elvis titles coming to the site soon we hope, mostly because we’ve lucked into some good sounding pressings that aren’t from the ’50s and early ’60s. His early albums are rarely in audiophile playing condition, so finding these later pressings with such good sound, so Tubey Magical, rich and smooth despite their reissue labels, has been a bit of a godsend.
