- Insanely good sound throughout, with both sides earning Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) grades, just shy of our Shootout Winner
- Rich, smooth, sweet, full of ambience, dead-on correct tonality — it’s all here
- Need a refresher course in tubey magic after playing too many modern recordings or remasterings? This record is overflowing with it
- It seems as though Bill Porter just doesn’t know how not to make an amazing sounding Living Stereo recording. Everything the guy touches is GOLD!
These Nearly White Hot Stamper pressings have top-quality sound that’s often surprisingly close to our White Hots, but they sell at substantial discounts to our Shootout Winners, making them a relative bargain in the world of Hot Stampers (“relative” meaning relative considering the prices we charge). We feel you get what you pay for here at Better Records, and if ever you don’t agree, please feel free to return the record for a full refund, no questions asked.
With two outstanding sides, this pressing gets two critically important elements of the recording right: the strings in the orchestra, and, even more importantly for obvious reasons, Linda’s voice. We guarantee that these sides give you a more natural-sounding Linda than you’ve ever heard, or your money back.
I suppose we owe a debt of gratitude to Harry Pearson for pointing out to us with his TAS List what a great record this is, although I’m pretty sure anybody playing this album would have no trouble telling after a minute or two that this recording is very special indeed.
