White Hot Stamper

The Rolling Stones
Black and Blue

  (Item #: rolliblack_1909_1) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • Incredible sound throughout with each side earning Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) grades or very close to it
  • Hand Of Fate on side one sounds particularly good - it has the meaty Glyn Johns sound we love
  • A full-bodied, solid copy like this lets you appreciate Billy Preston's contributions on the keys - he's all over the album, a very good thing indeed
  • "Melody ought to be a tentative experiment with Billy Preston's jazzy keyboard sound. Instead, it's a triumph, Jagger's voice swooping and snaking around Preston's piano and harmonies."

The Rolling Stones - Black and Blue

Listen to Billy Preston's Piano

  (Item #: rolliblack_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on what you should be listening for when critically evaluating your copy (or ours) of the album.

Billy Preston is all over this album on piano and organ and his contribution is crucial to the musical vibe on practically every song. Listen for Billy's full, solid, clear piano sound. When the piano is thin, the mix is thin and that's not the sound you want on a Stones album.

If the piano gets lost, your copy either has a smear problem or a transparency problem. Those are certainly easier to live with -- all the '70s systems I owned were smeary and opaque compared to my system today and I enjoyed the hell out of all of them -- but far from ideal.

The Rolling Stones - Black and Blue

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: rolliblack_2016) 



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

This is in fact one of the better sounding "later period" (1976) Stones records we've played, that's if we're talking about the better copies of course, like this one. The best pressings however are big, open, dynamic and full-bodied, with exceptionally lively percussion. As always, credit goes to the recording engineers, Glyn Johns et al., as well as Lee Hulko at Sterling, the original mastering engineer (who's cut about as many good sounding records as anyone we can think of).
