White Hot Stamper

Ray Charles
Genius + Soul = Jazz

  (Item #: charlgeniu_1808) 

Our Price: $449.99

  • With stunning Triple Plus (A+++) sound on both sides and Count Basie backing up The Genius himself, this copy is As Good As It Gets!
  • Most of this album is Ray stretching out with "some pretty mean and lean, cut-to-the-heart-of-the-matter B-3 Hammond organ licks."
  • Big and rich, clear and Tubey Magical, the 1962 sound of this vintage stereo pressing is just right; quiet vinyl too!
  • Allmusic notes: "...one of those instrumentals, a cover of the Clovers' "One Mint Julep," would give Charles one of his most unpredictable (and best) early-'60s hits."

Milt Jackson & Ray Charles
Soul Brothers

  (Item #: jackssoulb_1808) 

Our Price: $399.99

  • A KILLER sounding Atlantic stereo copy with shootout winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound from start to finish
  • As Good As It Gets -- incredibly rich, full and Tubey Magical with lots of energy and a nice extended top end
  • "This one is a real historical curiosity. Not only does vibraphonist Milt Jackson double here on piano but he plays guitar (for the only time on record) during "Bags' Guitar Blues." In addition Ray Charles is heard in a purely instrumental role on piano and, during two songs, on alto sax. Charles's fine playing makes one wonder why he so rarely picked up the horn in later years." - All Music

  • You'll find outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound on this vintage stereo pressing - it's the first truly Hot Stamper to EVER hit the site

  • 4 stars: "There is certainly a powerful, often sexy rapport between the two -- Charles in his sweet balladeering mode, Carter with her uniquely keening, drifting high register -- and they definitely create sparks in the justly famous rendition of "Baby, It's Cold Outside.""

Our Price: $169.99
Sale Price: $149.00 (You save $20.99 / 12%)

Ray Charles
All Time Great Country and Western Hits

  (Item #: charlallti_1810) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A Great sounding copy with Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it on all four sides!
  • What was especially shocking about this shootout is that in some ways the best sounding copies of the reissue not just equal but best their original album counterparts
  • Twenty-two songs on two LPs, including huge hits like I Can't Stop Loving You, You Don't Know Me, Oh Lonesome Me, Bye Bye Love, and much more - no wonder AMG gave both discs 5 stars
  • This is some big, bold, absolutely glorious Tubey Magical analog - the tape to disc transfer is Hard To Fault (HTF), making a mockery of the audiophile remasters to come

DCC Clear Vinyl Pressing

  (Item #: charlraych_dcc_clear) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another DCC LP debunked.

This Dunhill Compact Classics LP pressed on CLEAR VINYL is one of DCCs earliest forays into analog production. Unfortunately it sounds like a bad CD. In fact, you can be sure that Hoffman's CD murders it in every way. Don't waste your money.

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: charlallti_2011) 



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

EXCELLENT SOUND and mostly quiet vinyl throughout, the big highlights being an A++ side three and an A+++ side four! We finally found enough copies of this album to do another proper shootout, and this one was one of the very best. Drop the needle on side four to find out just how amazing Ray Charles can sound on vinyl when you've got a killer pressing. The vocals are silky and breathy with natural texture and amazing presence. You will not believe how much tubey magic you get on this side!

  (Item #: charllovec_2007) 



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

This ABC White Label Promo LP is one of the BEST SOUNDING Ray Charles records we have ever heard! This is analog at its best: rich, warm and sweet with tons of TUBEY MAGIC.

Ray Charles - The Genius After Hours

Top Quality Remastering Was Possible in 1985

  (Item #: charlthege_remastering) 



Another in our ongoing series of Random Thoughts on records.

Proof positive that there is nothing wrong with remastering vintage recordings if you know what you're doing. These sessions from 1956 (left off of an album that Allmusic liked a whole lot less than this one) were remastered in 1985 and the sound -- on the better copies mind you -- is correct from top to bottom.

DCC Reviewed & Recommended

  (Item #: charlraych_dcc) 



Sonic Grade: B+

Folks, I have to hand it to Steve Hoffman -- this is the BEST SOUNDING DCC LP we have played in years.

We've been harshin' on DCC for quite a while now. Whenever we do a shootout for the Eagles or Doors or Bonnie Raitt or Queen or you name it, the DCC pressing almost always gets a serious drubbing from our listening panel. Not so here. This one took TOP HONORS against the other copies we played and was head and shoulders better sounding in practically every way.
