Super Hot Stamper

Roy Orbison
The All-Time Greatest Hits of Roy Orbison

  (Item #: orbisallti_1812) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • This killer copy boasts superb Double Plus (A++) grades on all four sides
  • The phenomenally talented Bill Porter recorded many of Orbison's classic songs from the early '60s that are found on this compilation
  • Rich, smooth, sweet, full of ambience, dead on correct tonality - everything that we listen for in a great record is here
  • 4 1/2 stars: "... no one conveys pain and longing more sublimely or succinctly than Roy Orbison. But his songs are also masterpieces of production: so technically precise that his deceptively simple tunes and lush melodies flow even more smoothly behind his desperate baritone croon and quivering falsetto."

Roy Orbison - Crying

Reviewed in 2003

  (Item #: orbiscryin_classic) 



Sonic Grade: C

Another Classic Records LP reviewed. Not sure if we would still agree with what we wrote back in 2003 when this record came out, but here it is anyway.

"This is actually a very good sounding record, unlike the first Orbison that Classic did. It's also a better album."

Roy Orbison - Sings Lonely and Blue

Classic Records Debunked

  (Item #: orbissings_classic_records) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another Classic Records LP debunked.

Can’t recommend this one. It’s too bright. The DCC LP of Orbison’s material is dramatically better. I’ve had some discussions with some audiophiles who liked this album, and I’m frankly surprised that people find this kind of sound pleasing, but if you’re one of those people who likes bright records, this should do the trick.

The Traveling Wilburys - Volume One

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: travetrave_2011) 



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

MASTER TAPE SOUND ON SIDE ONE backed with an excellent side two, both on very quiet vinyl! It took us ages to put together enough clean copies to get this shootout going again. Many of the pressings we played suffered from too much compression and a phony hi-fi quality. We knew there had to be great copies out there somewhere, so we kept dropping the needle until we found a few good men. Here’s the best of them all -- it rates our top grade of A+++ on side one and A++ on side two. Drop the needle on Handle With Care to hear how wonderful this music can sound when it’s cut right!
