Some sections on our site are hard to find. Here’s one with lots of cool records in it:
A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.
This copy is super spacious, sweet and positively dripping with ambience. This is vintage analog at its best, so rich and relaxed you’ll wonder how it ever came to be that anyone seriously contemplated trying to “improve” upon it.
This recording is the very definition of The Sound of Tubey Magic. No recordings will ever be made like this again, nor will any CD ever be able to capture what is in the grooves of this pressing.
1960 – It Was a Very Good Year
. By far the best sound we have ever heard for The Ames Brothers
. 1960 Webster Hall vocals in RCA Living Stereo sound at its best
. Huge, rich, smooth and natural, the Tubey Magic is off the charts
. Esquivel and His Orchestra bring some fun Exotica flourishes to these Latin tunes
For the audiophile of wide ranging taste, both the sound and the music should be lots of fun. If you want to demonstrate just how good 1960 All Tube Analog sound can be, I’d be hard pressed to think of another record that could do the job better than this one.
Perfect for demo-ing your stereo to anyone who thinks audio recording technology has improved in the last forty years. (more…)
