A superb early WB Green Label Stereo LP, with outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER on both sides – exceptionally quiet vinyl too
Our early pressing here showed us a wonderfully Tubey Magical midrange for the Everlys that most audiophiles have never heard
So much good material here – Cathy’s Clown, Crying In The Rain, So Sad, That’s Old Fashioned, Lucille, etc.
“There are few sounds in American popular music more thrilling and sublimely satisfying than the harmonies of Don and Phil Everly…”
In stereo, on the early WB Green Label, with really quiet vinyl — this copy will be tough to beat!
It took us a long time to find enough records to do this shootout. How many extremely popular 50 year old records survived into the present era in such clean condition? We can’t be sure when the next shootout will be, but we can be pretty sure it won’t be any time soon.(more…)
Our original Gold Label stereo LP here has the MIDRANGE MAGIC that’s no doubt missing from whatever 180g reissue has been made from the 50+ year old tapes. As good as that pressing may be, we guarantee that this one is dramatically more REAL SOUNDING. It gives you the sense that Phil and Don are right in the room with you. (more…)
