White Hot Stamper

Judy Collins
Whales And Nightingales

  (Item #: colliwhale_2006) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • Judy's superb 1970 release makes its Hot Stamper debut her with STUNNING Shootout Winning Triple Plus sound from top to bottom
  • We guarantee there is dramatically more space, richness, vocal presence, and performance energy on this copy than others you've heard, and that's especially true if you made the mistake of buying whatever Heavy Vinyl pressing is currently on the market
  • " Whales & Nightingales is full of good songs ranging from Bob Dylan's "Time Passes Slowly" to songs by Jacques Brel and Pete Seeger... It opened new doors for her and for folk music in general."

Super Hot Stamper

Judy Collins
Fifth Album

  (Item #: collififth_2007_) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • Fifth Album finally makes its Hot Stamper debut here with outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last on the Big Red E label
  • These sides are exceptionally good, especially compared to most of what we played - only the best early pressings managed to get Collins' voice to sound natural and real
  • "... 5th Album, cut in late 1964, may very well be her definitive folk statement... A trio of Bob Dylan songs act as the album's centerpiece, clearly showing Collins' growth into more progressive songs. In addition to these, Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain" is given its classic reading, with Collins' voice echoing the song's melancholy and eerie but mellifluent precision and emotion. "

Super Hot Stamper

Judy Collins
In My Life

  (Item #: colliinmyl_2007_1) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • With outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last, this Elektra Gold Label stereo pressing will be very hard to beat
  • Exceptionally quiet for an original stereo pressing too, with no audible marks - not many survived in this kind of audiophile playing condition
  • Here's the midrange magic that’s missing from the reissues and whatever 180g pressing has been made from the tapes (or, to be clear, a modern digital master copied from who-knows-what-tapes)
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The material was well chosen; the arrangements showed it off to perfection; and Collins' vocals were alternately soothing and stirring, but always clear and well articulated, as well as carefully pitched to the tone of the material. "

Judy Collins - Colors of the Day

DCC Discussed

  (Item #: collicolor_dcc) 



A classic case of Live and Learn, maybe. Previously we had written:

Superb sonics. Judy has never sounded better. Not a big seller for DCC but it should have been. Those sweet acoustic guitars are hard to beat. No modern recording has sounded like this for over twenty years, so if you've forgotten what a real acoustic guitar sounds like, buy this record and get reacquainted with that sound. Tons of breath of life, superb production and mastering so you can clearly hear her hitting those flat notes (!), and some of the best sounding echo ever recorded.

Judy Collins - Who Knows Where The Time Goes

The Gold Labels Are the Best, Right?

  (Item #: colliwhokn_original) 



Nope. It’s just another one of them pesky Record Myths.

As often happens in these shootouts, the copy that's supposed to be the most Tubey Magical and "Real" -- most audiophiles would nominate the Gold Label original as their first choice on both counts -- turns out, counterintuitively, to be somewhat flat, lean and "modern" sounding. We were as surprised as anyone (even though we shouldn't be by now). We're fans of early label Elektra pressings as a rule; on this title they usually left us wanting more.

Hits That Are Made from Dub Tapes

  (Item #: colliwildf_dubby_hits) 



Another in our ongoing series of Random Thoughts on issues concerning music and recordings.

Both Sides Now, the Top Ten hit that finally put Judy on the map, is clearly made from a dub tape and doesn't sound as good as the songs that follow it on side two. Hey, it happens. Maybe it sounds right on the Greatest Hits? You could try one. We have trouble selling greatest hits albums so you'll have to do your own digging on that one.

Judy Collins - Wildflowers

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: colliwildf_2013) 



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

This White Hot Stamper side one was clearly the best we heard in our most recent shootout -- the sound is rich and full, yet Judy's voice comes across as especially clear and breathy. Yes, vintage analog pressings can do it all, with a naturalness that no modern LP or CD can begin to equal, making this side one the obvious choice for those who want to hear just how good Wildflowers gets.

1967 Elektra Tape Vs Vinyl - Where's the Tubey Magic?

  (Item #: colliwildf_wtlf) 



We were surprised that so few copies had the Tubey Magical qualities that we've come to expect from Elektra in 1967. The label was home to two very well-recorded (by none other than Bruce Botnick) bands at the time, The Doors and Love. What happened here? John Haeny, the engineer, worked on Waiting for the Sun, which is an amazing sounding Doors album on the right pressing. Why so few great sounding Wildflowers?
