Roxy Music - Avalon

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: roxymavalo_2011) 



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

This British original EG Super DeLuxe pressing of Avalon has White Hot Stamper sound on BOTH sides. We guarantee you have never begun to hear this music sound this clear, open and present. Right from the start the synths on track one were breathy and floating on a bed of cool studio air -- we knew this side was going to be awesome, and of course the more we played it the better it got. Nothing could touch it.

Roxy Music

Rhett Davies, Yanick Etienne and the Making of Avalon

  (Item #: roxymavalo_avalon) 



I consider Roxy Music to be one of the greatest Art Rock bands in the history of the world. The general public and most audiophiles would no doubt cast their vote for AVALON as the band's masterpiece. (The long and involved story of the making of the album can be seen below.) I much prefer their eponymous first album, Stranded, Country Life and Siren to the more "accessible" music found on Avalon. To be fair, that's splitting hairs, because any of those five titles are absolute Must Own Albums that belong in any serious popular music collection.

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: roxymavalo_depth) 



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

The best British original Super DeLuxe pressings of Avalon are sweet and silky, big and lively, with the kind of sound that drives us audiophiles wild -- which of course it the main reason this album was on Extra Heavy Rotation at most stereo stores back in the day.

Roxy Music - Avalon

For Your Information

  (Item #: roxymavalo_jpn) 



This Minty looking Japanese Import LP is substantially better than any domestic copy we've ever played. It's not in the same league as our Hot Stamper pressings, but it's pretty good all the same. Side two is ever so slightly dull when compared to side one.

Roxy Music - Avalon

A Simply Vinyl Mastering Success? Or Is It?

  (Item #: roxymavalo_scorecard) 



Sonic Grade: B (I'm guessing)

[These notes were written many years ago, which means that even we may not agree with some or all of the commentary.]

This version just plain KILLS most domestic copies and probably quite a few Brit ones too. Simply Vinyl did a superb job here.

Correction: an unnamed mastering engineer at the label did a superb job. Simply Vinyl isn’t in the business of mastering ANYTHING. They leave that up to the pros at the record labels. Sometimes those guys screw it up and sometimes they get it right.
