Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: littlwaiti_2009) 



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

This German import pressing of Waiting for Columbus is much better sounding than the typical Mastering Lab-mastered copy.

This German pressing is similar to one that came from my own personal collection, accidentally discovered way back in the early '80s as I recall. It KILLED my domestic original, and got some things right that even my treasured Mobile Fidelity pressing couldn't. We have been meaning to do a shootout for this album for at least the last five years, but kept running into the fact that in a head to head shootout the right MoFi pressing -- sloppy bass and all -- was hard to beat.

Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus

MoFi Reviewed

  (Item #: littlwaiti_mofi) 



Sonic Grade: C

Another Mobile Fidelity Pressing reviewed. Our Audiophile Scorecard has plenty more where this one came from.

This is actually a pretty good sounding record, all things considered. We put this one through our cleaning process and gave it a listen. Although our Hot Stamper copies do sound better, they’re also quite a bit more expensive. This copy had the best sound we heard out of the three or four we played, which makes it a Hot Stamper I suppose, but we are instead just calling it a Very Good Sounding Copy.

Mobile Fidelity's Approach to Mastering

I Have a Theory

  (Item #: littlwaiti_theory) 



I have a theory about why MoFi's mastering approach here tended to work for the album when it failed so miserably for so many others. It goes a little something like this.

Back in their early days MoFi tended to add bass and treble to practically every record they mastered, regardless of whether or not the master tape they were using needed any such boost. A little extra sparkle up top and a little extra slam down below was what the audiophile public seemed to want. Truth be told, I was a member of that group and I know I did.
