Reviews and Commentaries for Fleetwood Mac
Many years ago a copy of this record was returned by one of my customers for poor sound quality, so I threw it back on the turntable to see if I had been mistaken in my judgement of its sound.
I confess that hearing the first track again, The Green Manalishi, was painful — it’s the worst sounding song on the album.
But then Oh Well starts up, and it’s full of midrange magic, ambience and is exceptionally transparent.
The sound varies from track to track after that, but if your stereo can’t find the magic on records like this, you seriously need to look into some better equipment.
This record sounds amazing on our system and it ought to at your house too.
The real test for a stereo is to get difficult to reproduce recordings to sound good, not easy to reproduce recordings.
If you want to test your system after doing some tweaking and tuning, these are the kinds of difficult to reproduce records that will allow you to do it.
When these records start sounding better, there’s a good chance that whatever you did to your system to improve it actually worked.
And if you’re up for a challenge and want to buy some records that can sound great but are difficult to reproduce, these Hot Stamper pressings should do the trick.
