White Hot Stamper

Paul Simon
Paul Simon

  (Item #: simonpauls_2006) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • An outstanding copy of Simon's sophomore album with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on both sides
  • Balanced, musical, present and full-bodied throughout - this pressing was a big step up from every other copy we played
  • Roy Halee handled the engineering and as usual he did a great job for the time - thankfully it was recorded in 1972, not 1982
  • A member of our Top 100 and 5 stars: "It was miles removed from the big, stately ballad style of Bridge Over Troubled Water and signaled that Simon was a versatile songwriter as well as an expressive singer with a much broader range of musical interests than he had previously demonstrated."

Paul Simon
Graceland

  (Item #: simongrace_2005)

  • An outstanding copy of Paul Simon's 1986 release with solid Double Plus (A++) rich, smooth and clear sound, in precisely the way so few copies are - exceptionally quiet vinyl too

Paul Simon
The Rhythm Of The Saints

  (Item #: simonrhyth_2008) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • An outstanding copy of The Rhythm of the Saints with solid Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER from start to finish - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Richer, warmer, more natural, more relaxed, this is what vintage analog is all about, that smooth sound that never calls attention to itself and just lets the music flow
  • 4 stars: "Though he recorded the album's prominent percussion tracks in Brazil, Paul Simon fashioned The Rhythm of the Saints as a deliberate follow-up to the artistic breakthrough and commercial comeback that was the South Africa-tinged Graceland."

  • A superb pressing of Hearts and Bones with nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound from first note to last - just shy of our Shootout Winner

  • 4 1/2 stars: "... his most personal collection of songs, one of his most ambitious, and one of his best. It retains a personal vision... Simon's most impressive collection in a decade and the most underrated album in his catalog."

  • An outstanding copy of this Grammy-winning record from 1987 with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last

Our Price: $99.99

  • An outstanding copy of Simon's third solo album, with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish - exceptionally quiet vinyl too

  • 5 stars: "Retaining the buoyant musical feel of Paul Simon, but employing a more produced sound, There Goes Rhymin' Simon found Paul Simon writing and performing with assurance and venturing into soulful and R&B-oriented music."

Paul Simon - Graceland

Our Shootout Winner from 2019

  (Item #: simongrace_2019) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame and a record that ranks high on our recording ranks high on our Difficulty of Reproduction Scale.

Super transparent and hi-res with no attendant sacrifice in low end or fullness, this is about as tonally balanced as Graceland gets. The top end is more delicate and extended, which was not true for most of the copies we played.

There's a much more pleasant smoothness here, standing in sharp contrast to the typically grainy, spitty copy, with more weight down low and more presence to Simon's vocals.

Paul Simon - Graceland

What to Think When the New Version Is Completely Unrecognizable?

  (Item #: simongrace_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame Pressing and another Heavy Vinyl LP debunked.

Where did this thick, dull, bloated, opaque turd come from? Having played at least 50 copies of the album over the last ten years, I can honestly say I have never heard one that sounded very much like this new version (maybe some record club copy we picked up by accident did, can't say it never happened).

Can that possibly be a good thing?

Paul Simon - Graceland

When Clarity Is King

  (Item #: simongrace_wtlf) 



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

We regularly do shootouts for Graceland. Having played so many copies over the years we're become quite familiar with the range of sound on the album, what constitutes good, better and best, and we feel we understand what qualities the premier copy must have in order to win one of our shootouts.

What Graceland has going for it sonically is CLARITY.

Paul Simon - Paul Simon

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: simonpauls_2008) 



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

MASTER TAPE SOUND on side one, backed with a great side two! We just finished our first big shootout for this wonderfully fun album, and I gotta tell you -- I don’t think any Paul Simon solo album was recorded any better! I can’t imagine that you'll find a better sounding side than the first side of this copy; it's doing EVERYTHING right.

Paul Simon - Stil Crazy All These Years

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: simonstill_depth) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of Still Crazy After All These Years.

As well-produced, well-engineered Pop Albums from the '70s, the very best copies can proudly hold their heads high. Wait a minute. Our last commentary noted what a mess most of the pressings of this album sound like, with so much spit and grain. Have we changed our minds? Well, yes and no, and as usual we make no excuses for having changed our minds. We call it progress.

Paul Simon - There Goes Rhymin’ Simon

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: simonthere_2008) 



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

TWO LOVELY SIDES, including a side one that takes this music to an entirely new level! People have been telling me for years how good this album can sound, but until we played this copy I didn’t realize just how right they were. This side one has STAGGERING presence and a MASSIVE three-dimensional soundfield that we simply did not hear anywhere else. The sound is airy, open, spacious and SO transparent, and the energy factor is OFF THE CHARTS. Drop the needle and brace yourself for rich, full-bodied sound that jumps out of the speakers and fills the room!

Simon & Garfunkel - Bookends

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: simonbooke_2011) 



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

TWO KILLER SIDES including a STUNNING Demo Quality A+++ side one! Bring over your audio buddies and blow their minds by dropping the needle on America -- I guarantee that they've never heard it sound like this before (unless, of course, they happen to be one of our top-shelf Hot Stamper customers already). Everything you'd hope for on a killer pressing of this album is right here on this side one, and most of it is on the A++ side two as well.

Simon & Garfunkel - Sounds of Silence

Our Shootout Winner from 2010

  (Item #: simonsound_2010) 



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

This White Hot Stamper has AMAZING A+++ SOUND ON BOTH SIDES. It’s been ages since we’ve tried to tackle Sounds Of Silence, and with good reason -- it’s exceptionally difficult to find quiet copies with the right sound. This one is an entirely different story -- smooth, sweet and full-bodied with incredible presence.

Still Crazy About Records After All These Years

Why Not? They Keep Getting Better!

  (Item #: simonstill_better) 



Still Crazy is the perfect example of an album that now sounds far better than we thought would ever be possible, not in this life anyway, due mostly to changes to the stereo, the quality of the electricity that feeds it, and last but far from least, the listening room itself.
