    Solid Air (Half-Speed Master)

    HALF-SPEED MASTER : 2016 reissue of 1973 album, mastered at Abbey Road Studios from the original tapes & pressed on 180-gram audiophile quality vinyl!


    Unlike previous re-issues the album has been cut at half-speed at Abbey Road Studios. This technique results in the very highest quality sound reproduction.


    The process involves the original 1/4 inch studio master tape being played back at precisely half its recorded speed while the cutting lathe is similarly turned at half the desired playback speed. This allows the cutting head twice the time to cut the intricate groove, affording considerably more accuracy with important matters such as frequency extremes and micro-dynamic contrasts. The resulting cuts have excellent high frequency response and very solid and stable stereo images.


    The superb vinyl is accompanied by a high quality reproduction of the original gatefold album sleeve.


    Recorded at Sound Techniques Studio in Chelsea during 1972, John Martyn's seminal album Solid Air was released in February 1973.


    Emotionally intense and hauntingly beautiful Solid Air encapsulates almost every musical genre with ease and accomplishment. The songs are exquisitely crafted fusions of blues, country, folk, jazz and rock, with dazzling guitar, musicianship and outstanding vocals.

    Candy-O (On Sale)

    How did the Cars move beyond their smash 1978 debut (also available on Mobile Fidelity 180-gram LP) and secure their status as one of musics leading bands for years to come? Look no further than the quadruple-platinum Candy-O. Continuing along the streamlined pop paths of its predecessor, the sophomore effort is preoccupied with desirable women that are as mysterious, sexy, and cool as the groups musicand the records pin-up cover.


    With rare exception, few new-wave artists enjoyed much of a career outside of a one-hit wonder. Candy-O proves the Cars were anything but. Its loaded with minimalist atmospherics, pulsing bass lines, catchy refrains, and labyrinthine synthesizers that stick in your mind for days. And while retaining a simplicity thats a Cars hallmark, the album also takes myriad stylistic detours: the glam-rock accents of Dangerous Type, a song whose title references the records mysterious and lusty matter; the percolating riffs of the contagious title track; the dizzying garage-rock nature of the upbeat Got a Lot on My Mind, complete with a tooting Farfisa organ. Nothing drags or feels out of place.


    Through it all, vocalists Benjamin Orr and Ric Ocasek keep their heads about themselves, singing in direct albeit detached tones that convey the tension, excitement, and risky promise inherent in the lyrics. Hook-laced choruses abound. Yet all is not what it seems.


    Hooks are mechanical by nature, but the affectlessness of these deserves special mention; only listeners who consider alienation is the craze a great insight will find much meaning here. On the other hand, only listeners who demand meaning in all things will find this useless. Cold and thin, shiny and hypnotic, it's what [the Cars] do best--rock and roll that is definitely pop without a hint of cuteness. Robert Christgau, The Consumer Guide


    Half-speed mastered from the original analog tapes, Mobile Fidelitys numbered limited-edition LP brings the Cars distinctive melodies and exotic arrangements to the fore in ways that have never been heard outside of the recording studio. For the first time, Roy Thomas Bakers vocal production shines, with each members contributions rescued from a cold sonic murk that detracted from the musics impact on both vinyl and the extremely compressed CD. Once you hear the newly uncovered dynamics and rich textures, youll be wondering where they were all of these years. Chalk this up as an essential addition to your pop collection.

    Here Today, Tomorrow Next Week

    The Icelandic avant-pop pioneers, the Sugarcubes' second record, Here Today, Tomorrow Next Week! was originally released in 1989 and it's rich in eccentric contrast and playful contradiction. Teaming the swooping vocals of lead singer Bjork and the spoken word agit-propisms of trumpeter Einer, is bizarre yet very well matched. Notable tracks include the calypso-tinged Tidal Wave, the barbed and jagged rhythms of Nail and the hyperactive A Day Called Zero.


    For all the audiophiles out there One Little Indian is reissuing 38 classic albums using the newest technology in vinyl manufacturing - Half Speed Direct Metal Mastering. The groove is cut directly in copper metal. Transient response is greatly improved. Stampers are plated directly from the DMM Copper Master, eliminating two of the three plating steps required for lacquers. In short, DMM yields better detail resolution and a lower noise ratio. This is especially good for long play albums, or audiophile material. All albums are remastered direct from the original master tapes and pressed on 45RPM heavy weight 200g virgin vinyl audiophile discs. Each release is strictly limited, housed in a plastic wallet and individually numbered. A chance to pick up classic One Little Indian albums in the most lavish vinyl format available.

    Odessey and Oracle

    Half Speed Mastered


    Odessey and Oracle was one of the flukiest (and best) albums of the 1960s, and one of the most enduring long-players to come out of the entire British psychedelic boom, mixing trippy melodies, ornate choruses, and lush Mellotron sounds with a solid hard rock base. But it was overlooked completely in England and barely got out in America (with a big push by Al Kooper, who was then a Columbia Records producer); and it was neglected in the U.S. until the single Time of the Season, culled from the album, topped the charts nearly two years after it was recorded, by which time the group was long disbanded. Ironically, at the time of its recording in the summer of 1967, permanency was not much on the minds of the bandmembers. Odessey and Oracle was intended as a final statement, a bold last hurrah, having worked hard for three years only to see the quality of their gigs decline as the hits stopped coming. The results are consistently pleasing, surprising, and challenging: Hung Up on a Dream and Changes are some of the most powerful psychedelic pop/rock ever heard out of England, with a solid rhythm section, a hot Mellotron sound, and chiming, hard guitar, as well as highly melodic piano. Changes also benefits from radiant singing. This Will Be Our Year makes use of trumpets (one of the very few instances of real overdubbing) in a manner reminiscent of Penny Lane; and then there's Time of the Season, the most well-known song in their output and a white soul classic. Not all of the album is that inspired, but it's all consistently interesting and very good listening, and superior to most other psychedelic albums this side of the Beatles' best and Pink Floyd's early work. Indeed, the only complaint one might have about the original LP is its relatively short running time, barely over 30 minutes, but even that's refreshing in an era where most musicians took their time making their point.

    What's Going On (Half-Speed Master)

    Abbey Road Half-Speed Master


    Pressed On 180 Gram Vinyl And Housed In A Hard Card Slipcase


    Marvin Gaye's What's Going On, released on May 21st, 1971, is regarded by many as one of the best soul albums of all time. Recorded in several locations, including the famous Hitsville U.S.A. in Detroit and The Sound Factory in West Hollywood, it was also the first album to give a credit to Motown's legendary house band, the Funk Brothers.


    The original album consisted of nine songs mainly focused on the suffering and injustice in the US in the late 1960s from the eyes of a US veteran who'd returned home after fighting in Vietnam. The 2xCD Deluxe Edition released in 2001 brought together the original LP, the Detroit Mix of the album (which was rejected at the time), plus a live recording from The Kennedy Center Washington from May 1st, 1972. The Kennedy Center date was Gaye's first live performance following the death of close friend and singing partner, Tammi Terrell.


    Both versions of the album, the Kennedy Center recording, plus several other tracks - including mono versions of the singles taken from the LP - are all featured on this 4xLP deluxe vinyl edition of What's Going On.


    About These Abbey Road Half-Speed Masters:


    These releases will offer a superior vinyl experience with Half-Speed Mastering from Abbey Road. They have been exclusively re-mastered at Half Speed to bring you a new level of depth and clarity.


    This limited edition range, all pressed on 180-gram vinyl, come in deluxe packaging. The initial releases are all iconic deluxe edition titles from great Universal artists - Amy Winehouse, The Who, James Brown, Marvin Gaye and Mike Oldfield.


    The albums were cut from high-resolution digital transfers from the best-known analogue tapes by Abbey Road mastering engineer Miles Showell, one of the foremost practitioners of this artisan process in the world today. Only minimal sympathetic equalization was applied to the transfers to keep everything as pure as possible. Also, as these are vinyl-only releases, Miles did not apply any digital limiting. This is added to almost all digital releases to make them appear to be loud and is responsible for the so-called "loudness war" and in almost every case is anything but natural and pure sounding.

    Tubular Bells (Half-Speed Master)

    Abbey Road Half-Speed Master


    Pressed On 180 Gram Vinyl And Housed In A Gatefold Sleeve


    Tubular Bells is Mike Oldfield's and Virgin Records debut album, released on May 25th, 1973. Recorded when Oldfield was only 19, he played most of the instruments himself, recording them one at a time and layering the recordings to create the finished piece. Oldfield had approached many of major record labels without any success, so Richard Branson, who owned The Manor studios where the album was recorded, released it on the newly formed Virgin Records. The opening piano solo went on to be used in the film The Exorcist, pushing the album to another level for both Oldfield and Virgin.


    This 2xLP Deluxe Edition vinyl incorporates the 1973 stereo mix, Parts One and Two, and the new stereo mix which Oldfield re-worked when his deal with Virgin expired and he moved to Mercury Records in 2009.

    New Gold Dream (Half-Speed Master)

    HALF-SPEED MASTER : 2016 reissue of 1982 album, mastered at Abbey Road Studios from the original tapes & pressed on 180-gram audiophile quality vinyl!


    New Gold Dream is the fifth album by the celebrated Caledonian rockers. Released in 1982, it is widely considered to be a turning point for the band, a bridge between their post punk roots and stadium-filling destiny, and gathered enormous critical acclaim as well as impressive sales. Listed in the estimable tome '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die' New Gold Dream was a discernible move toward a more a commercial sound and it entered the UK chart at number 3, yielding the hit singles Promised You a Miracle and Glittering Prize.


    The latter track and the synth-heavy Someone Somewhere in Summertime in particular represented a shift towards undisguised pop and it's also worth noting that Hunter and Hunted features a solo by Jazz keyboardist Herbie Hancock, a rare distinction for any rock/pop album.


    Every band or artist with a history has an album that's their holy grail, remarked lead singer Jim Kerr. I suppose New Gold Dream was ours. It was a special time because we were really beginning to break through with that record, both commercially and critically. The people that liked that record connected with it in a special way. There was a depth to it: it created its own mythology. It stood out."
    also worth noting that Hunter and Hunted features a solo by Jazz keyboardist Herbie Hancock, a rare distinction for any rock/pop album.


    The artwork caused quite stir due to its religious imagery, so much so that on the version released in Yugoslavia, the cross was removed. Jim Kerr reflected [During the writing of the album] we often went for walks. Around Perth you find a lot of Celtic crosses, crosses that seem to spring up from the earth. We thought it was a very powerful symbol. They were in the ground which produced the water we drank, so why not?

    It's It (Awaiting Repress)

    It's-It contains remixed versions of tracks from each of the Sugarcubes' three albums. Since emerging as a solo artist, Bjork has gone on to considerable acclaim with her remixes, however, at the time of its 1992 release, the notion of Sugarcubes remixes was unheard of. There's a lot to like here though, including two radically differing versions of the brilliant Birthday, the band's breakthrough single. Other standout cuts include a largely instrumental version of Motorcrash, a slower paced Regina, and an upbeat and looser Hit.

    Foxtrot


    180g Audiophile Vinyl


    Half Speed Mastering


    2008 Mixes By Nick Davis & Genesis


    Pressed At Pallas GmbH


    Foxtrot is where Genesis began to pull all of its varied inspirations into a cohesive sound -- which doesn't necessarily mean that the album is streamlined, for this is a group that always was grandiose even when they were cohesive, or even when they rocked, which they truly do for the first time here. Indeed, the startling thing about the opening Watcher of the Skies is that it's the first time that Genesis attacked like a rock band, playing with a visceral power. There's might and majesty here, and it, along with Get 'Em Out by Friday, is the truest sign that Genesis has grown muscle without abandoning the whimsy. Certainly, they've rarely sounded as fantastical or odd as they do on the epic 22-minute closer Supper's Ready, a nearly side-long suite that remains one of the group's signature moments. It ebbs, flows, teases, and taunts, see-sawing between coiled instrumental attacks and delicate pastoral fairy tales. If Peter Gabriel remained a rather inscrutable lyricist, his gift for imagery is abundant, as there are passages throughout the album that are hauntingly evocative in their precious prose. But what impresses most about Foxtrot is how that precociousness is delivered with pure musical force. This is the rare art-rock album that excels at both the art and the rock, and it's a pinnacle of the genre (and decade) because of it.

    Rough Mix (Half-Speed Master)

    Limited Edition Heavyweight 180-Gram Red Vinyl


    Remastered At Abbey Road With Half-Speed Mastering Process


    For Pete Townshend's second foray away from The Who he teamed up with ex-Small Faces / Faces bassist Ronnie Lane for 'Rough Mix'. Townshend had originally been asked to produce Lane's next solo project but that turned instead into a collaboration between the two long-standing friends. A veritable A-list of musician friends, including Eric Clapton, John Entwistle and Charlie Watts, were drafted in to provide backup.


    The album, recorded between 1976 and 1977, was released in 1977 and made the top fifty in both the UK and US. The album features the sublime 'Heart To Hang Onto' which Townshend performed at the Ronnie Lane Tribute Concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 2004.

    Empty Glass (Half-Speed Master)

    Limited Edition Heavyweight 180-Gram Clear Vinyl


    Remastered At Abbey Road With Half-Speed Mastering Process


    Considered by Pete Townshend to be his first 'real' solo album 'Empty Glass' was also to become his most commercially successful. Whereas 'Who Came First' was a devotional album and 'Rough Mix' a collaboration, Townshend had no such restrictions on this 1980 release. Coming after Keith Moon's death the album sees Townshend at his most emotional and rawest as he publicly acknowledges his own addictions and exorcises his demons.


    The album was written while Townshend was also trying to write new material for The Who and complaints were raised in some circles that he was keeping the best material for his solo work. The album certainly contains songs that would have worked for the band (a version of the title track was actually recorded by The Who) but the personal investment in the material by the composer shines through. The album spawned three singles including the top ten US smash 'Let My Love Open The Door' as well as 'Empty Glass' and 'A Little Is Enough'.

    Who Came First (Half-Speed Master)

    Limited Edition Heavyweight 180-Gram White Vinyl


    Remastered At Abbey Road With Half-Speed Mastering Process


    This 1972 release was the first release by Pete Townshend outside of The Who. The album is a collection of music dedicated to Meher Baba, Townshend's spiritual master and follows on from the private pressings of 'Happy Birthday' another devotional album which Townshend put together to celebrate the first anniversary of the passing of Baba and its follow up 'I Am'. 'Who Came First' came about because of the bootlegging of these albums and Decca in the States pushing for an official release. In response Townshend decided to release a new album, with Decca promising $1 of every sale going towards Baba projects. The resultant album exposes Townshend's spiritual enlightenment and sees him perform with fellow Baba followers, including Ronnie Lane and Billy Nicholls.


    The album includes Townshend's versions of Who Classics 'Let's See Action' and the sublime opener 'Pure and Easy' as well as cover versions of songs which were Baba favourites. The album closes with the epic 'Parvadigar', a rendition of Meher Baba's Universal Prayer, set to music by PeteTownshend.

    The Iron Man (Half-Speed Master)

    Limited Edition Heavyweight 180-Gram Silver Vinyl


    Remastered At Abbey Road With Half-Speed Mastering Process


    The Iron Man: The Musical by Pete Townshend, originally released in 1989, is an adaptation of Ted Hughes' story The Iron Man, produced and largely composed and performed by Pete Townshend of The Who. It also stars Roger Daltrey, Deborah Conway, John Lee Hooker, and Nina Simone.


    The three then-surviving members of The Who (Daltrey, John Entwistle, and Townshend) performed as a group in two songs, Dig and Fire, although the latter was not penned by Townshend. (The Who would later perform Dig live during their 1989 reunion tour.)


    A Friend is a Friend and I Won't Run Anymore were released as singles; Fire was also issued as a promo-only in the United States.


    A stage version was mounted at the Young Vic theatre in London in 1993. On the strength of this, Warners optioned the story for a movie which, with a very different adaptation of the story, became The Iron Giant; Townshend received an Executive Producer credit.
