Super Hot Stamper

Loggins & Messina
Mother Lode

  (Item #: loggimothe_1810) 

Our Price: $119.99

  • With outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER from first note to last, this was one of the better copies we played in our recent shootout
  • A surprisingly well-recorded album - with Demo Disc quality sound - and a personal favorite from way back
  • I can't recall another pop or rock recording that captures either the plucked energy or the harmonic nuances of the mandolin better
  • Never a band to find favor with the critics, even Allmusic had to concede that the album was "Elegantly, tastefully accomplished."

Super Hot Stamper

Kenny Loggins
Celebrate Me Home

  (Item #: loggiceleb_1801_1809) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • This Kenny Loggins pressing boasts solid Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last
  • Both sides here are rich, full and Tubey Magical with a massive bottom end and lots of space around the instruments
  • It's also one of the only Loggins solo albums I've ever liked; it's a favorite of mine from back in the day
  • 4 Stars: "Loggins is in good form throughout the record, and if even only the title track entered his readily-acknowledged canon, this has a fine, sustained mood: a soft late '70s vibe that makes it a nice artifact of its time, as well as one of his stronger records, as illustrated by its platinum status -- something it achieved without any blockbuster singles."

Confirmation Bias

Why You Won’t Hear What You Don’t Want to Hear

  (Item #: loggisitti_bias) 



After doing our first shootout for this album a few years back I can honestly say I had never heard this music sound remotely as good as it did on the best Hot Stamper pressings. More importantly, from an audiophile point of view, I can honestly say that I never imagined it could sound as good as I was hearing it. The sound was just OUT OF THIS WORLD.

It’s why we link the Revolutionary Changes in Audio commentary to so many of our Hot Stamper listings. The revolutionary changes we discuss are precisely what make it possible for any audiophile (this means you) to hear better sound than you ever imagined for all your favorite albums.

All you have to do is do all the stuff we do.

Kenny Loggins - Celebrate Me Home

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: loggiceleb_2011) 



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

This WHITE HOT Stamper side one shows you just how good this record can sound, which is surprisingly good, considering how many copies of the album are just plain awful. Finally, most of the grit, grain and transistory opacity have fallen away, leaving in its place the rich, full-bodied and Tubey Magical '70s sound one would expect.

Loggins & Messina - Full Sail

Choruses that Really Get Up and Going

  (Item #: loggifulls_wtlf) 



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

At about the two minute mark the big chorus in Watching the River Run is also a great test for weight, resolution, dynamic energy, and freedom from strain in the loudest parts. When the whole band is projecting, really belting it out, the shortcomings of practically any copy will be most evident. It was a key test every pressing had to pass.

Loggins & Messina - Loggins & Messina

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: loggiloggi_2009) 



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

I'm a giant fan of the band, not only for their music, but also because their recordings are so good.

What we have here is the perfect example of a top quality analog studio pop recording. It's RICH, SWEET, and DYNAMIC, with the kind of sound that has practically disappeared from the face of the earth. Not to worry though; it can still be found on these wonderful Hot Stamper pressings from the '70s that we put so much time and effort into around here. Why shouldn't we? This is where the BEST SOUND is.

Loggins & Messina - Mother Lode

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: loggimothe_fame) 



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

This White Hot Stamper pressing of L&M's fourth release demonstrates pretty convincingly just what an amazing DEMO DISC this album can be. When Jim Messina rips into his mandolin solo half way through Be Free your jaw is likely to hit the ground. On the best copies it positively LEAPS out of the left speaker. I can't recall another pop or rock recording that captures either the plucked energy or the harmonic nuances of the instrument better. To hear such a well-recorded mandolin on a copy of this quality is nothing less than a THRILL.

Loggins & Messina - Sittin' In

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: loggisitti_2011) 



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

TWO INCREDIBLE SIDES ON QUIET VINYL! This White Hot Stamper Side Two had off the charts ENERGY and DRIVE -- the music on this copy simply COMES ALIVE in a way that no other pressing we played was able to match. I can honestly say I've never heard these songs sound better.

Loggins & Messina - Sittin' In

What to Listen For

  (Item #: loggisitti_wtlf) 



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

Practically any copy you find will have a bit of a boost in the bottom end. The kick drum really kicks on this album, more than it should in fact.

And almost all copies have too much top end right around 10k. The ones with the worst case of boosted highs and boosted bass sound like they were mastered by Stan Ricker and pressed in Japan, much like those put out by a famous label back in the '70s.
