White Hot Stamper

Van Morrison
Moondance

  (Item #: morrimoond_1907_10) 

Our Price: $549.99

  • A stunning Green Label early pressing with Triple Plus (A+++) sound on the second side and solid Double Plus (A++) sound on the first - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • A brilliant example of early-'70s Tubey Magical analog sound and Van's Masterpiece of blue-eyed soul
  • An incredibly tough title to find in clean condition with audiophile quality sound, but we did it, and here it is
  • "An album worthy of an Irish R&B singer who wrote a teen hit called "Mystic Eyes" (not to mention a Brill Building smash called "Brown Eyed Girl"), adding punchy brass (including pennywhistles and foghorn) and a solid backbeat (including congas) to his folk-jazz swing, and a pop-wise formal control to his Gaelic poetry." Christgau - A+ (a grade he does not give out often)

Our Half-Speed Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: morrimoond_ddlabs_2009) 



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

We've combined our two best half-speed mastered SuperDisk pressings to give you Super Hot sound for both sides. Of all the half-speed versions we had here, two of them each had one amazing side.

"But Tom," you might say, "I thought you hated audiophile versions of rock records!" Well, we sure don't hate 'em when they sound like this! The best Green Label copies are going to be a step up in class, but you're going to have a hard time finding sound this good for Moondance no matter what kind of pressings you're playing.

Van Morrison - Moondance

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: morrimoond_2018) 



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

Musically, the record Moondance most reminds me of is After The Gold Rush. Neil Young set out to make a commercial album that had nothing but strong songs built around catchy melodies, with the highest quality production values. What better describes Moondance? Every song is good, you can sing practically every one of them from memory, and in fact you'll probably feel like singing along with every one of them as they are playing. And the whole album is produced with some of the best sound that was available at the time. (Shelly Yakus engineered, his first time behind the board on a major project if Wikipedia is to be believed.)

Rhino / Warners Heavy Vinyl Debunked - Again

  (Item #: morrimoond_debunk_2016) 



Sonic Grade: F

The original grade I gave out in 2014 when last I played this remastered version as part of a shootout was "D." I explained at the time:

Just listen to how strange Van's voice sounds, so lean, hard and sour. That alone qualifies it for an "F", but considering how bad most pressings of this album are, let's be fair, if not downright generous, and call it a "D".

I just revisited the record in a current shootout, and after giving it some thought I have decided that the right grade is in fact "F." It cannot be any other, for reasons I discuss below.
