Super Hot Stamper

The Beatles
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely...

  (Item #: beatlsgtpe_1910) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides or better, this copy was getting Pepper to sound the way we like it - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Huge, spacious and detailed, with the Tubey Magic of a fresh tape, this is the way you want to hear Sgt. Pepper
  • Most pressings - especially the new ones - have nothing like this kind of Tubey Magic, space and energy
  • A Better Records Top 100 Title and AMG 5 stars: "It's possible to argue that there are better Beatles albums, yet no album is as historically important as this."

Bizet-Shchedrin / Carmen Ballet Suite / Rozhdestvensky

  (Item #: bizetcarme_1910) 

Our Price: $449.99

  • Unbelievable Shootout Winning Demo Disc quality sound throughout -- QUADRUPLE PLUS (A++++) on the first side and Triple Plus (A+++) on the second
  • Both sides are incredibly open, high-rez, and spacious, with depth like you will not believe and least shrill string reproduction we have ever heard for this music
  • Side one has by far the better music - it's where the most exciting, most percussive movements can be found - and this pressing, with Beyond White Hot sound for that side, is guaranteed to be bigger and more lively than you ever imagined (because that's how we felt about it, hence the fourth plus)
  • Gloriously exciting and fun music that belongs in any audiophile's collection

  • "... a valiant attempt to corral the group's hydra-headed psychedelic jug-band music on vinyl..." - All Music

  • A stunning sounding pressing of one of the most difficult-to-find records in the world of Hot Stampers

This experimentation can be heard in the very first notes of the title track, as Ray Manzarek's spacey keyboards set the tone for Morrison's eerie, distorted warning, "Strange days have found us." It's the perfect introduction to a perfectly strange album."
