A Four Men with Beards Heavy Vinyl Winner

  (Item #: thompshoot_heavy_vinyl) 



Sonic Grade: B

Hey, this is a surprisingly good sounding pressing! Our Hot Stampers are clearly bigger and more lively, but for a Heavy Vinyl reissue this pressing is quite respectable.

An Album We Are Clearly Obsessed With

  (Item #: thompshoot_obsess) 



SHOOT OUT THE LIGHTS is an album we admit to being obsessed with -- just look at the number of commentaries we've written about it.

I've seen Richard Thompson on a number of occasions over the years, and as loud as my stereo will play, which is pretty darn loud, I've never been able to make his guitar solos 20 dB louder than everything else, because they're simply not on the record that way. That's why live music can't be reproduced faithfully in the home: the dynamic contrasts are much too great for the typical listener, or his stereo.

Richard & Linda Thompson - Shoot Out The Lights

Bigger, Taller, Wider, Deeper

  (Item #: thompshoot_size) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on what to listen for (WTLF).

One of the qualities we don't talk about nearly enough on the site is the SIZE of a record's presentation. Some copies of the album don't extend all the way to the outside edges of the speakers, and don't seem to take up all the space from the floor to the ceiling. Other copies do, creating a huge soundfield from which the instruments and voices positively jump out of the speakers.

When you hear a copy that can do that, needless to say (at least to anyone who's actually bought some of our best Hot Stamper pressings) it's an entirely different listening experience.

Loud Versus Live

  (Item #: thompshoot_loud) 



Yet another recording that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

I've seen Richard Thompson on a number of occasions over the years, and as loud as my stereo will play, which is pretty darn loud, I've never been able to make his guitar solos 20 dB louder than everything else, because they're simply not on the record that way. That's why live music can't be reproduced faithfully in the home: the dynamic contrasts are much too great for the typical listener, or his stereo.

Having said that, when you actually do turn this record up, way up, you get the feeling of hearing live music, and that's not easy to do.

Richard & Linda Thompson - Shoot Out The Lights

The Best Sounding Record of the Decade?

  (Item #: thompshoot_2015) 



Without a doubt this is the best record Richard and Linda Thompson ever made together, possibly the best record Thompson was ever involved with, but it also holds one other important distinction, one of great interest to us audiophiles: it's the BEST SOUNDING record he (they) ever made as well.

As I was playing the finalists for side two (at ear-splitting levels I might add) an odd thought crossed my mind. Where had I heard this kind of monstrous, punchy bass and these soaring, perfectly distorted guitars, so big and so powerful, before? There was something about the sound - the awesome energy, the freedom from compression or spatial restraint of any kind - that was strangely familiar from another shootout.
