Hot Stamper

Humble Pie
Performance - Rockin' The Fillmore

  (Item #: humblperfo_1711) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With Hot Stamper or better sound on all four sides, this original pressing on the custom A&M label is ROCKIN' all right
  • Performance is one of the best sounding - perhaps even THE best sounding - Hard Rock concert albums we've ever heard
  • Engineered by the legendary Eddie Kramer, what other live rock record sounds this good?
  • "There was a time where this kind of self-congratulatory improvisation was not only accepted but expected and Performance not only captures that point in time, but in its exacting detail it illustrates how this self-satisfied instrumental exploration could be a very good thing."

Harry Nilsson - Son of Schmilsson

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: nilsssonof_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

We had a great time shooting out a big stack of these, as we're just wild about Harry here at Better Records. Unfortunately, most copies out there are too dark and grainy to get all that excited about. Here's a copy that tells a much different story —both sides have good energy, smooth and sweet vocals, and nice extension up top. Drop the needle on Turn On Your Radio or The Lottery Song and we bet you fall in love with this one!

Humble Pie - Rock On

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: humblrocko_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This record is the very definition of TUBEY MAGIC. The sound is so rich and sweet it will make you want to take all your CDs and dump them in the trash, if you haven’t done so already.

This is the sound WE LOVE here at Better Records, assuming the pressing in question still maintains some degree of presence, immediacy and transparency. Records like this can easily get thick and muddy; think of the typically dull Who’s Next or Sticky Fingers and you’ll know exactly what I mean.

Pat Metheny - Offramp

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: metheoffra_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

Triple Plus on side two, it's the side with the most space, all the weight, and the best balance of them all. Side one is Double Plus, doing pretty much everything side two was doing - in short, getting this ethereal music to sound right. Offramp held the Number One spot on the Jazz Album charts for 16 weeks back in 1982.

Peter Frampton - Frampton

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: frampframpton_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

This is a shootout we'd been trying to do for years, but the copies we'd been playing off and on hadn't been especially cooperative, and onto the back burner our plans would go. Maybe next year...

A bit of background: Both his first solo album and this, his fourth, were recorded by the well-known engineer Chris Kimsey, who famously worked with the Stones and others too numerous to mention. To say that the sound of his albums varies considerably would be the understatement of the year. The first album (British only, fyi) is rich, sweet, and Tubey Magical as practically anything you've ever heard (as well as overly tube compressed, its biggest fault).

A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame.

If you're looking for a top-shelf pressing of THE iconic Classic Rock Double Live Album, don't let this one pass you by. If you grew up with this album it's going to be a thrill to hear this copy rockin' on a big audiophile system.

Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive

What to Listen For

  (Item #: frampframp_wtlf) 



Another in the long list of recordings that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

What to listen for you ask? Dynamic, soaring guitar solos! On the best copies the guitar solos are the loudest parts of some songs, which, as everyone who's ever been to a rock concert knows, is exactly what happens in live rock music.

Not many live albums are mixed to allow the guitar solos to rock the way these do. Since Frampton is one of my favorite players, hearing his solos get loud on this album is nothing less than a thrill.

Peter Frampton - I’m In You

  (Item #: frampiminy_ss) 



This is the album that almost single handedly destroyed Peter Frampton's career. To capitalize on the success of his amazing live album, this one was rushed into production with a lot of weak material. But there is a good reason to buy it. The song I'm In You has one of those perfect Frampton guitar breaks which is almost worth the price of the album. About half of this record is actually pretty good. This one won't make you a fan, but if you are a fan you need this title in your collection, and this is about as nice a copy as can be found.

Peter Frampton - Where I Should Be

Reviewed in 2010

  (Item #: frampwhere) 



One of my personal Records to Die For. This album presents a more mature Peter Frampton doing some of the most consistently inspired material of his career, including R&B covers like May I Baby and You Don’t Know Like I Know, with horn charts that really cook — in other words, a great album.

Peter Frampton - Wind of Change

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

Hot Stampers for one of our favorite Classic Rock records have finally made it to the site! This British original is the very definition of TUBEY MAGIC. The sound is so rich and sweet it will make you want to take all your CDs and dump them in the trash (if you haven’t done so already).
