White Hot Stamper

Hall and Oates
H2O

  (Item #: hallah2o_1908_12) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • This Hall and Oates classic from 1982 won our most recent shootout with Triple Plus (A+++) sound on BOTH sides
  • Only the second White Hot copy to hit the site in the last few years and boy is it KILLER -- super rich, full-bodied and Tubey Magical with a massive bottom end
  • Much more consistent than most of their releases, this one boasts three killer hits including Maneater, Family Man and my All Time Favorite by the band, One on One
  • 4 Stars: "Private Eyes solidified Hall & Oates’ status as one of the most popular acts in America in the early ’80s, and...... with 1982's H2O, they capitalized on its success, delivering an album that turned out to bigger than its predecessor, as it climbed higher on the charts and launched three Top Ten singles..."

Nearly White Hot Stamper

Hall and Oates
H2O

  (Item #: hallah2o_2004) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • A superb copy of this Hall and Oates classic from 1982 with Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound from start to finish - just shy of our Shootout Winner
  • It's lively, open, present and natural - the soundfield is big and spacious and the bottom end is killer
  • Much more consistent than most of their releases, this one boasts three killer hits including Maneater, Family Man and my All Time Favorite by the band, One on One
  • 4 stars: "Private Eyes solidified Hall & Oates’ status as one of the most popular acts in America in the early ’80s, and...... with 1982's H2O, they capitalized on its success, delivering an album that turned out to bigger than its predecessor, as it climbed higher on the charts and launched three Top Ten singles..."

Super Hot Stamper

Hall and Oates
Daryl Hall & John Oates

  (Item #: halladaryl_2003) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • An outstanding copy of the band's self-titled album, with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from top to bottom - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Both of these sides are out of this world -- big, full-bodied, clean and clear with tons of energy and a huge bottom end
  • Man, this is one tough nut to crack-- gritty vocals, thin vocals, recessed vocals, smeary vocals -- this music is all about the vocals and the vocals are pretty bad most of the time
  • This copy gets the duo's voices to be clear and present, breathy and natural like you have never heard before
  • 4 1/2 stars: "... much of the album is lush and catchy, featuring ballads and midtempo numbers that are nearly as engaging as the duo's breakthrough single, 'Sara Smile.'"

Hall and Oates - Abandoned Luncheonette

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: hallaaband_2008) 



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

If you’re looking for a big production pop record that jumps out of your speakers, is full of TUBEY MAGIC, and has consistently good music, look no further. Until I picked up one of these nice originals, I had no idea how good this record could sound. For an early '70s multi-track pop recording this is about as good as it gets (AGAIG as we like to say). It's rich, sweet, open, natural, smooth most of the time -- in short, it's got all the stuff we audiophiles LOVE.

MoFi Debunked

  (Item #: hallaaband_debunk_) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another MoFi LP debunked.

Those of you who have had the misfortune to play the MoFi LP know that they absolutely ruined this album. They boosted the hell out of the top end, the last thing in the world this recording needed.

Actually, that’s probably not true. People who collect MoFi records probably like the kind of phony sound found on the MoFi of this title.

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: hallaaband_depth) 



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

If you have a copy or two laying around, there is a very good chance that side two will be noticeably thinner and brighter than side one. That has been our experience anyway, and we've been playing batches of this album for well over a decade. To find a copy with a rich side two is rare indeed.

Hall and Oates - Daryl Hall & John Oates

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: hallahalla_2011) 



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

This is a Super Hot Stamper 2 Pack, with one side of each record earning a grade of A++. The reason it takes two separate records to make one excellent sounding album is simple enough: most pressings of this album are just plain AWFUL. Finding a copy with even one good side is difficult, and practically none of the sides we played earned our top grade, so that ought to tell you something right there. Last time around our top listing was a Super Hot Stamper, with two good sides back to back. No such copy came our way this year, so this two pack is the way to go if you want a complete album with good sound.

Hall and Oates

Tubes Vs. Transistors

  (Item #: hallaaband_tubes) 



Hot Stamper pressings of this album have the sound of TUBES. I’m sure it was recorded with transistors, judging by the fact that it was made after most recording studios had abandoned that old technology, so how did they accomplish such a feat?
