The Beatles
A Collection of Beatles Oldies

  • Several tracks, including "I Want to Hold Your Hand", "Day Tripper", "We Can Work It Out" and "Paperback Writer" were given their first stereo mixes for this very album

The Beatles
A Hard Day’s Night

  (Item #: beatlahard_1904_6_10) 

Our Price: $349.99

  • With Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound throughout, we guarantee you've never heard A Hard Day's Night sound remotely as good as it does here
  • On top of that this vintage UK pressing plays on relatively quiet vinyl - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus throughout
  • Both sides are big, spacious and absolutely jumping out of the speakers, with relatively rich, smooth sound
  • This one gets the heart of the music right - the lad's voices - and that's what makes The Beatles FUN to listen to
  • 5 stars: "Decades after its original release, its punchy blend of propulsive rhythms, jangly guitars, and infectious, singalong melodies is remarkably fresh."

White Hot Stamper (Quiet Vinyl)

Pink Floyd
Piper at the Gates of Dawn

  (Item #: pinkfpiper_1911) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • An amazing Shootout Winning pressing with Triple Plus (A+++) sound on side one and Double Plus (A++) sound on side two - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • This shockingly well-recorded album is a big step up from many that followed and surely the best sounding Floyd until Meddle
  • We made a huge breakthrough during our shootout, discovering a very special label and stampers that took the sound to a whole new level
  • 5 stars: "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn successfully captures both sides of psychedelic experimentation — the pleasures of expanding one’s mind and perception, and an underlying threat of mental disorder and even lunacy; this duality makes Piper all the more compelling in light of Barrett’s subsequent breakdown, and ranks it as one of the best psychedelic albums of all time."

Pink Floyd
A Saucerful of Secrets

  (Item #: pinkfsauce_1905_9) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • Two Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sides, making this vintage stereo UK pressing the best sounding copy we've ever heard
  • Forget whatever semi-comatose Heavy Vinyl record they're making these days - if you want to hear the Tubey Magic, size and energy of these wonderful sessions from 1967 (some with Syd, some with David), this is the way to go
  • in 2014, Nick Mason named A Saucerful of Secrets as his favorite of Pink Floyd's studio albums. “I think there are ideas contained there that we have continued to use all the way through our career,” he says. “I think [it] was a quite good way of marking Syd [Barrett]’s departure and Dave [Gilmour]’s arrival. It’s rather nice to have it on one record, where you get both things. It’s a cross-fade rather than a cut.”

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

Rich, Tubey Magical and full-bodied with a big, solid bottom. The energy is phenomenal, with tremendous separation between the instruments and real depth to the soundfield. This is the sound of the Master Tape, make no mistake about it.

The Beatles - A Hard Day’s Night

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: beatlahard_2012) 



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

The best side one we've ever heard! Side one was so amazing, clearly a step up over any side of any other copy we played, that we felt obligated to award it our "Four Plus" (A++++) grade. Out of the thousands of Hot Stampers we've listed over the years, about twenty have earned Four Pluses on any side. That alone makes this a very special copy indeed.

And side two was right up there with the best we played this time around as well, finishing in second place with a grade of A++ to A+++. Both sides are so RICH and TUBEY MAGICAL you will not believe this is the same A Hard Day's Night that has always sounded so hard, harsh and aggressive.

The Beatles - Beatles For Sale

A Forgotten Rock and Pop Classic

  (Item #: beatlforsa_forgotten) 



The Beatles' Forgotten Rock and Pop Classic.

We had a lot of fun reading The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions, which details the band's studio history from 1962 - 1970. In the book, George Martin mentions that he felt this album was a rush job and that he has trouble listening to it to this day. As much respect as we have for The Fifth Beatle, we couldn't disagree more. For Sale is simply wonderful.

As we played copy after copy for our shootout, the more enjoyable these 14 Folk Rock songs became. Repeated listening to track after track only enhanced our appreciation. And as is always the case, stumbling upon the Shootout Winning copy was a thrill that allowed us to hear more in the music than we ever thought possible.

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: beatlforsa_2009) 



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

MASTER TAPE SOUND ON SIDE ONE! We feel Beatles For Sale is a criminally underappreciated album, and a killer copy like this will show you exactly why. The startling presence and immediacy allow the emotional qualities of these lovely songs to really come through. The clarity of the vocals is going to blow you away. No matter what copy you’ve been listening to, I’m completely confident that this one will slaughter it. We play a ton of these every year, but there’s a good reason you don’t see too many of them hit the site -- most of them bore us to tears.

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: beatlforsa_depth) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of For Sale. We note that Words of Love is a tough track to get right:

There are some lively, jangly guitars behind the smooth voices. Many copies seem to sacrifice one for the other, leaving you with either irritating guitars or dull voices. The better copies get them both right.

Germans Versus Brits

  (Item #: beatlhelp_2011) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of Help.

We've heard some excellent German pressings before, but this time [circa 2011] nothing could match up to our best Brit copies. What the best British copies have is more of the TUBEY MAGIC that can typically be heard on early pressings, due no doubt to the fact that they are mastered with tube equipment.

Presenting another entry in our extensive Listening in Depth series, this time for The Beatles' amazing fifth album, released in 1965, Help.

Much like we said about the Please Please Me Hot Stampers, on the top copies the presence of the vocals and guitars is so real it's positively startling at times. Drop the needle on You've Got To Hide Your Love Away and turn up the volume -- on the best copies it will be as if John and Paul were right there in your living room!

The first Beatles record is nothing short of amazing. It captures more of the live sound of these four guys playing together as a rock and roll band than any record they ever made afterwards. (Let It Be gets some of that live quality too and makes a great bookend for the group.)

The Beatles - With the Beatles

The Early Pressings Are the Best, Right?

  (Item #: beatlwitht_myth) 



Nope. It’s just another Record Myth.

So many Parlophone copies would have you think With The Beatles is a gritty, edgy, crude recording -- especially if you made the mistake of buying an early pressing. The early pressings are consistently grittier, edgier and more crude than the later pressings we played.

So much for the old canard that Original Always Equals Better. When it comes to With The Beatles it just ain't so, and it doesn't take a State-of-the-Art system or pair of golden ears to hear it.
