    Another Scoop

    A second collected volume of demo versions of songs destined to be considered for recording by The Who, this 1987 release on Atco Records is as an even stronger collection than it's 1983 predecessor. It (again) contains rough, acoustic workups of many Who standards in their infant form such as You Better You Bet, Pinball Wizard, Happy Jack, Substitute, Pictures of Lily and The Kids Are Alright among others. The curiosity lies solely in the head-arrangements on songs that were to become associated with time and enveloped within, Roger Daltry's vocal gymnastics. Here, sung by Townshend himself, one can sense the writer's distinct persona.

    The comparison to eventual more famous versions is fascinating in most cases. The exposure of these workups reveals how great these songs really are, stripped down. Other selections include Girl In A Suitcase, Brooklyn Kids, Football Fugue, Long Live Rock, Call me Lightning, Holly Like Ivy, Begin The Beguine, Vicious Interlude, La-La-Lies, Cat Snatch, Prelude ##556, Baroque Ippenese, Praying The Game, Drifting Blues, Christmas, Don't Let Go The Coat, Prelude: The Right To Write, Never Ask Me, Ask Yourself, The Ferryman and The Shout.

    But Beautiful (Pure Pleasure)

    A highly successful and respected jazz and soul singer, Nancy Wilson bridges the gap between the classic pop vocal era of Peggy Lee, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald and the belting R&B divas of today. Though Nancy Wilson has always cited the emotionally naked, androgynous vocal style of Jimmy Scott as her primary influence, her voice carries definite echoes of Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughan. Yet Wilson also has always had a strong feeling for post-Sam Cooke soul and the tartness of her delivery carries more than an echo of the sometimes-icy Lena Horne. Young and heart-stoppingly beautiful, Wilson was discovered singing in a N.Y.C. jazz club in the late 1950s by Cannonball Adderley, who told his management at Capitol Records that they needed to scoop her up before another label did. Wilson was immediately signed and started recording for Capitol, the premier vocal label of the 1950s and '60s.

    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Klipsch Reference X20i In-Ear Headphones





    Hear The Air

    X20i is the most revealing in-ear headphone Klipsch has ever created. High frequencies are reproduced with extreme accuracy and bass is clear, full, and warm. Breaking down the limitations of the capabilities in the class, X20i brings a new standard to headphone acoustics. Powered by a true two-way dual armature design, the high-horsepower KG-926T woofer is paired to a high resolution KG-125B super tweeter. This brings about a palpable sound character and makes X20i the broadest bandwidth in-ear headphone available from Klipsch.


    High Resolution Super Tweeter

    Placing X20i into a class of its own, the KG-125B super tweeter provides a truly transparent sound. With high-frequency performance designed to take advantage of superb lossless recordings, this headphone provides hi-hats and cymbals with true-to-life realism.


    Surgical-Grade Stainless Steel

    Injection-molded surgical-grade stainless steel is the main material used in the X20i chassis. Featuring a reverse hood scoop, X20i is one of the smallest and most durable two-way headphones available today.


    Super-Slim Ear Tips

    X20i features the most comfortable ear tip ever designed by Klipsch. Pre-installed, the most popular ear tip has been redesigned into a super slim form. After extensive research, surveys lead to the conclusion that ear canals are even narrower than previously thought. The super slim ear tip responds to that by using an even narrower and more tapered design, allowing people who have never found in-ear monitors to be comfortable to wear them without issue. However, since all ears are unique, included with the product are five additional sizes to pick from.


    Interchangeable Cables

    Another impressive feature of X20i is the ability to swap cables. Screw-type coaxial SSMCX connectors for both left and right sides allow for swapping cables or using custom balanced cables. Roughly 35% smaller than industry-standard MMCX connectors, X20i has all the advantages of interchangeable cables without the bulk.


    Advanced Three-Button Mic And Remote

    Enjoy easy control of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod while listening to music, watching movies and answering phone calls.


    Accessories

    Featuring a stainless black finish, each comes with genuine leather carrying case, tie bar, five different sized ear tips and a one-year warranty.
