White Hot Stamper

Electric Light Orchestra
Eldorado

  (Item #: electeldor_1910_1) 

Our Price: $399.99

  • You'll find Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on both sides of this import copy of Eldorado
  • This pressing showed us a big, lively, present and musically involving Eldorado, one of the toughest nuts to crack in the entire ELO canon
  • There are some really awful British pressings out there, so if you like the thrill of the hunt, make sure you have lots of time and money to spend
  • 5 stars: "Eldorado was strongly reminiscent in some ways of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Not that it could ever have the same impact or be as distinctive, but it had its feet planted in so many richly melodic and varied musical traditions, yet made it all work in a rock context, that it did recall the Beatles classic."

Nearly White Hot Stamper

Electric Light Orchestra
ELO 2

  (Item #: electelo2_1908_1) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • Stunning sound from start to finish for this Harvest UK import with both sides earning nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) grades, just shy of our Shootout Winner
  • These sides are huge, rich and Tubey Magical with wonderfully sweet and breathy vocals and a huge bottom end
  • "It was as personal an effort as Lynne had ever made in music, showcasing his work as singer, songwriter, guitarist, sometime synthesizer player, and producer, and it is more focused than its predecessor but also retains some of the earlier album's lean textures... the album holds up well, and it and the single [Roll Over Beethoven] did go a long way toward getting them the beginnings of an audience in America." - All Music

Electric Light Orchestra - A New World Record

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: electnewwo_depth) 



Presenting another entry in our extensive Listening in Depth series.

As a result of Jeff Lynne's everything-but-the-kitchen-sink production approach, it will be the rare copy that provides enough transparency and resolution to bring out all the elements in these incredibly dense mixes, strings included. But when you find a copy that does, what a THRILL it is. This is the band's MASTERPIECE in my humble opinion. For audiophiles ELO on LP doesn't get any better.

Electric Light Orchestra - A New World Record

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: electnewwo_2008) 



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

Even though I am not the world's biggest ELO fan, I am a HUGE fan of this album, which is why I’m so happy to have finally found one with AMAZING SOUND, on both sides! The British originals are the only ones that can convey the sweet TUBEY MAGIC of the British Master Tapes. The string tone on the average domestic copy is shrill and smeary; too little of the critically important texture remains after the master tapes have been dubbed and the copies sent to America for mastering.

Electric Light Orchestra - On the Third Day

Our Shootout Winner from 2010

  (Item #: electonthe_2010) 



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

This White Hot Stamper Side Two is proof positive that the master tape used to cut the album back in 1973 was right here in the good old U. S. of A. The sound is positively JUMPING out of the speakers, like nothing you've ever heard before from this band -- especially if you have a British pressing of the album. The sound has real life to it, unlike the sound on the import pressings of the album. Once you've played a good domestic pressing such as this one, it's obvious that the Brit vinyl is made from sub-generation copy tapes. The imports sound like someone threw a blanket over your speakers.

Electric Light Orchestra - On the Third Day

The British Imports Are Made from Dubs

  (Item #: electonthe_import) 



Sonic Grade: F

Presenting the newest member of our Hall of Shame.

It's obvious, or should be, that the Brit vinyl is made from sub-generation copy tapes. The imports sound like someone threw a blanket over your speakers. We know this because we had a bunch of them cleaned up for our shootout many years ago and they all sucked.

We tend to buy Electric Light Orchestra records on import vinyl; those are the ones that often sound the best. Many of the domestic pressings sound as though they were mastered from dub tapes. But On The Third Day is proof that this is not always the case, just as Siren proves that the best Roxy Music albums are not always British.

Electric Light Orchestra - Ouf Of The Blue

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: electoutof_2015) 



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

Did you know that most pressings are half-speed mastered by none of than MoFi's very own Stan Ricker?

The followup to their masterpiece, A New World Record, there are of course plenty of hits on this one too, Turn to Stone and Mr. Blue Sky among them.

Electric Light Orchestra - The Electric Light Orchestra

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: electelect_2012) 



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

A++ sound on both sides for the crazy and wonderful debut album from ELO, an album that almost never sounds good! We had a bunch of these on hand and put them to the test recently. Most of them did not have the kind of sound that we were hoping for, but with enough copies on hand we were able to find a couple of winners. This one had our highest rated side one (A++ was as far as we wanted to go) and one of the better side twos as well. It isn't a Demo Disc by any means but if you're a fan of the band I'm sure you'll be surprised at how much better a Super Hot Stamper like this one communicates the music.
