Paul McCartney & Wings - Band On The Run

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: mccarbando_2011) 



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

This British Original looking EMI Black Label LP has THE BEST SOUND I HAVE EVER HEARD FOR THIS ALBUM. Most pressings of this album leave a lot to be desired. They typically sound like they're made from second-rate dubs.

A song like Jet can be positively painful on most of the LPs that you run across. Here, practically for the first time, it actually sounds good, with plenty of deep bass that I'm not used to hearing. Following Jet is probably the best sounding track on side one, Bluebird. It's amazingly sweet and transparent on this LP. Like I say, I don't think I've ever heard a better copy.

Paul McCartney & Wings - Wild Life

  (Item #: mccarwildl) 



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

This Minty Apple British/Domestic 2-Pack has two AMAZING sides on QUIET VINYL! We were not all that familiar with the album going into this shootout, but after spending the day listening to copies like these we found ourselves LOVING IT!

Paul McCartney - McCartney

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: mccarmccar1_2013) 



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

This stunning 2-pack of McCartney's solo debut has AMAZING A+++ SOUND FROM START TO FINISH! It's been AGES since we've heard a copy like this. Both sides have the kind of clarity, transparency and immediacy you need for this album to sound its best. Those qualities let you hear all the detail, nuance, and texture to the instruments that you just don't get on the average pressing.

Both of the copies in this 2-pack have one amazing side and one side that just didn't meet our standards, so we combined them to give you excellent sound for the entire album.

Paul McCartney - McCartney

British Artist, British Pressing... Right?

  (Item #: mccarmccar1_myth) 



Nope. It’s just another Record Myth.

In our experience, the real McCartney Magic is only found on the best domestic Apple pressings. We've never heard an import that knocked our socks off, and the later CBS issues are hardly worth the vinyl they're pressed on. Then again, many of the domestic Apples are garbage too. You've got to clean and play a whole lotta copies to find a copy with truly Hot Stamper sound.

Paul McCartney - Ram

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: mccarram_2011) 



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

THE BEST COPY OF RAM TO EVER HIT THE SITE! We've been picking these up like crazy in the hopes that one day we find copies like this. Here's a domestic pressing that is right up there with the very best Brits, which shouldn't be too shocking news for anyone who reads our site regularly. Side one earned our top grade of A+++ and side two was strong as well, rating between A+ and A++. The sound is big and lively with excellent presence.

Paul McCartney - Unplugged

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: mccarunplu_2011) 



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

WHITE HOT STAMPERS and QUIET VINYL on BOTH SIDES make this the best copy of McCartney's Unplugged to ever hit the site! We just finished a huge shootout for this Better Records favorite and this pressing really blew us away, clearly the best sounding on both sides out of a big stack of copies. The sound is rich, full-bodied and amazingly present, with the kind of jumpin'-out-of-the-speakers sound that you only get on the best pressings.

Paul McCartney - Unplugged

Life-Size Images and Living Presence

  (Item #: mccarunplu_listen) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises. (This is one of our earliest ones, from all the way back in 2006!)

On the song Blackbird Paul moves the microphone, scraping it along the floor, which causes a huge wave of bass to envelop the room. I was over at one of my customer's houses a while ago, doing some testing with electronics and tweaks, and I remember distinctly that the microphone stand was shrunken and lean sounding in a way I had never heard before. Now this customer, whose system was in the $100K range, had no idea what that microphone stand could really do. I did, because I've been hearing it do it for years.

Paul McCartney and Wings - At the Speed of Sound

Our Four Plus Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: mccaratthe_2016) 



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

This is a classic case of Live and Learn. We were wrong about At the Speed of Sound as a recording. As to whether or not there are great sounding pressings of it, having just done a big shootout for the album in 2016 we now know there most certainly are.

Paul McCartney Testimonial

... Maybe I’m Amazed gave me goosebumps ...

  (Item #: mccarmccar1_testimonial) 



Rick sent us this letter recently after having played his first Hot Stamper, the first record he ever bought from us, how about that! At $300 it wasn’t cheap, but the best things in life never are, and certainly there is little in the world of audio that's cheap and much good. This is not a cheap hobby if you want to do it right, and even tons of money doesn't guarantee you will get good sound. It's far more complicated than that. To quote Winston Churchill, it takes "blood, toil, tears and sweat."

He went on to say "You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: Victory. Victory at all costs... Victory, however long and hard the road may be..."
