White Hot Stamper

Willie Nelson & Family
Honeysuckle Rose

  (Item #: nelsohoney_2004_7) 

Our Price: $249.99
Sale Price: $199.99 (You save $50.00 / 20%)


  • Honeysuckle Rose finally makes its Hot Stamper debut here with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on all FOUR sides
  • This surprisingly well recorded live album has the kind of smooth, rich, tonally correct analog sound we thought they had forgotten how to achieve by 1980, but here it is!
  • 4 stars: "The soundtrack to Honeysuckle Rose is... a collection of songs by Willie Nelson and his Family band as well as a host of friends... Nelson's readings of his own tunes like "On the Road Again," and others are solid, inspired, and rollicking. His versions of tunes written by Kris Kristofferson ("Loving Her Was Easier Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again"), Rodney Crowell ("Angel Eyes"), and Lee Clayton ("If You Could Touch Her at All") blow away the studio versions."

Super Hot Stamper

The Band
The Last Waltz

  (Item #: band_lastw_2002_6) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • The Band's second live album returns with outstanding Double Plus (A++) Hot Stamper sound or close to it on all SIX sides - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Rich, dynamic and natural sounding with low end weight, midrange smoothness and powerful, punchy bass
  • Features an A-list of brilliant artists, including Van Morrison, Ringo Star, Joni Mitchell, and Muddy Waters, just to name a few
  • 4 stars: "It's the Band's "special guests" who really make this set stand out -- Muddy Waters' ferocious version of "Mannish Boy" would have been a wonder from a man half his age, Van Morrison sounds positively joyous on "Caravan," Neil Young and Joni Mitchell do well for their Canadian brethren, and Bob Dylan's closing set finds him in admirably loose and rollicking form."

Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding copy of Honeysuckle Rose, with solid Double Plus (A++) sound on all FOUR sides
  • This surprisingly well recorded live album has the kind of smooth, rich, tonally correct analog sound we thought they had forgotten how to achieve by 1980, but here it is!

Super Hot Stamper

Emmylou Harris
Blue Kentucky Girl

  (Item #: harribluek_2001) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • A superb sounding copy with Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • These sides have the kind of rich, natural sound we found on far too few copies and little of the vocal edginess that many EH albums suffer from
  • Surprisingly full-bodied and not overly detailed for a recording from 1979 - they still knew what they were doing then
  • "In response to criticism that her records weren’t country enough, Harris recorded Blue Kentucky Girl, one of her most traditional outings. Relying on a more acoustic sound, the album largely forsakes contemporary pop songs in favor of standard country fare, including the Louvin Brothers' "Everytime You Leave" and Leon Payne's "They'll Never Take His Love from Me."

Emmylou Harris - Blue Kentucky Girl

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: harribluek_2015) 



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

One of the best copies to come out of our recent shootout. Very present and dynamic vocals, with no phony EQ or accentuated detail (a big problem with Emmylou's recordings as a whole).

Note how natural, clear and transparent the sound is -- believe me, we didn't hear too many do what these two sides were doing.

Emmylou Harris - Elite Hotel

Our Shootout Winner from 2014

  (Item #: harrielite_2014) 



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

TWO EXCELLENT SIDES, including an AMAZING A+++ SIDE ONE! It is TOUGH to find great sound for this album, but this copy really nailed it. Emmylou's voice, obviously the key element, is just killer here. Most copies we play have their fair share of problems, but when you get one like this the sonic issues fade into the background, letting you focus on one thing -- the MUSIC.

Emmylou Harris - Luxury Liner

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: harriluxur_2013) 



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

TWO IMPRESSIVE A+++ SIDES for this White Hot Stamper 2-pack! We just finished our first-ever shootout for this album, and we're pleased to report that the sound on the best sides is right up there with Emmylou's best -- clear, open and transparent with tons of texture and detail. We've bundled our best side one and our best side two together to give you As Good As It Gets sound for the entire album! And if you want to hear exactly what you're paying for in a White Hot Stamper, just flip either one of these copies over. (Or you could leave playing average sounding sides to us.)

Emmylou Harris - Pieces Of The Sky

Our Shootout Winner from 2014

  (Item #: harripiece_2014) 



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

This album has the real Country Sound, with plenty of top players sitting in on these sessions, musicians who know country music as well as anyone alive. The legendary guitarist for Elvis (and half the stars of Nashville), James Burton, lends a hand on Electric and Dobro. On vocals and guitar Herb Pederson, who still plays locally. (Together with Chris Hillman they put on a great show of old Country and Honky Tonk favorites. If they come to your town check them out.) Ricky Skaggs on fiddle, Billy Payne on piano, Bernie Leadon on banjo -- no doubt a good time was had by all in the studio,,,

Emmylou Harris - Quarter Moon In A Ten Cent Town

MoFi Debunked

  (Item #: harriquart_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another MoFi LP debunked.

I comment below about the ridiculous sound of the MoFi pressing. When you have a recording that is already plenty bright, adding more top end and taking out more lower midrange is the last thing in the world you should be doing. Since that is standard operating procedure for MoFi (and other Half-Speed mastering outfits), that's exactly the approach they ended up taking.

Emmylou Harris - Quarter Moon In A Ten Cent Town

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: harriquart_2012) 



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

This is a Warner Brothers Palm Tree Label LP with SUPERB SOUND, dramatically better than that of the typical copy. We recently undertook a huge shootout for this album and this pressing finished way up top with an A+++ grade on side one and an A++ for the second side. The grit and edge that mess up most copies out there are kept in check here, allowing the music to sound smooth and sweet.

Emmylou's vocals sound JUST RIGHT here with lots of breath and texture. The immediacy is OFF THE CHARTS.

Emmylou Harris - Roses In The Snow

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: harriroses_2012) 



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

AMAZING A+++ SOUND ON BOTH SIDES! The immediacy of the vocals is startling -- Emmylou is IN THE ROOM with you, belting out these heartfelt, emotional songs. If that doesn’t give you chills, I don’t know what will! We've done several shootouts for this album now, and we've completely fallen in love with both the music and the sound. When you hear a copy like this, it's easy to see why. Even our single plus (A+) sides sound wonderful, but our Super Hot (A++) and White Hot (A+++) sides are OUT OF THIS WORLD. You won't find too many records from 1980 with sound this good, that's for sure!

Little Feat - Feats Don't Fail Me Now

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: littlfeats_2013) 



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

A White Hot side one mated to a Super Hot side two make this our big shootout winner this time around. Incidentally our last time around for Little Feat's fourth album was 2008 for those of you keeping track at home; yes, it's getting mighty hard to find clean copies of practically all the pre-Waiting For Columbus titles.

The good news we have to offer this time as opposed to last is that we can now clearly say that Feats Don't Fail Me Now is the best sounding album of the first four the band recorded. We think the songs are great too; we would hope that goes without saying.

Little Feat - Feats Don't Fail Me Now

Their Most Consistent, Most Inspired Songwriting

  (Item #: littlfeats_best) 



This is, we regret to say, a Forgotten Rock Classic from Little Feat.

Feats Don't Fail Me Now is the best sounding album of the first four the band recorded. We think the songs are great too; we would hope that goes without saying. Waiting For Columbus -- their live masterpiece and inarguably the definitive recording statement by the band -- has at least one song from this album on each of its four sides. That ought to tell you something. This is where the band really hit their stride. (The next album is a personal favorite as well.)
