White Hot Stamper

Supertramp
Even In The Quietest Moments

  (Item #: supereveni_1905_10) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • An insanely good sounding copy with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound on the second side and solid Double Plus (A++) sound on the first - exceptionally quiet vinyl too!
  • Quietest Moments can hold its own with any of the band's classics, from Crime all the way through to Breakfast
  • Big Production Tubey Magical British Art Rock just doesn't get much better than Supertramp in the Seventies
  • "The title of Even in the Quietest Moments... isn't much of an exaggeration — this 1977 album finds Supertramp indulging in some of their quietest moments... It feels more pop than it actually is, despite the opening single, "Give a Little Bit," their poppiest song to date, as well as their biggest hit."

Supertramp - Even In The Quietest Moments

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: supereveni_2015) 



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

A killer pressing! So much clearer, cleaner and more transparent than we remember from last time around, with more Tubey Magic too.

The bottom end is big and punchy, the top is smooth and sweet, and the vocals are present and breathy. On a transparent copy such as this the drums really punch through the dense mixes clearly, giving the music more life and energy. The piano sounds correct, the sax is full and breathy -- you'd be very hard-pressed to find better sound for this album than this. Very hard pressed indeed.

Sweet Thunder Debunked

  (Item #: supereveni_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another Half Speed debunked.

We’re big fans of this album here at Better Records and consider it to be one of Supertramp’s best. That said, this half-speed is a disgrace. There is absolutely no presence to the sound of the copy we played. The guitars, which on some cuts are double tracked, each coming directly out of the speaker hard right and hard left, are so dull it sounds like the speaker is facing the back wall!

Making Progress in Audio

  (Item #: supereveni_progress) 



The story behind this record is what real Progress in Audio is all about.

We wrote up this album in 2005 as a Hot Stamper Stalled listing. We just could not find anything that sounded right to us. The imports were a smeary mess, the half-speed was and is a complete joke (we used to like it but that just goes to show how wrong you can be), and the domestic copies were so grainy and phony-sounding we knew there was no way to make the case that this was an actual audiophile-quality recording.

What to Listen For

  (Item #: supereveni_wtlf) 



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

The piano on Give a Little Bit can get buried in the dense mix. Side ones that are rich and tubey and smooth with a clear piano did very well in our shootout.

Lover Boy is a Demo Quality Track on the best copies. It can be huge, spacious and lively. Getting the strings to sound harmonically rich without sliding into shrillness may not be easy but some copies manage it. On the biggest, richest copies the breakdown at about 2:20 is a lot of fun.

The Supertramp You Don't Know

Even In The Quietest Moments

  (Item #: supereveni_know) 



After discovering killer Hot Stampers for this Forgotten Classic we feel the album can hold its own with any of Supertramp's classic '70s releases, from Crime of the Century all the way through to Breakfast in America.

Our White Hot stamper pressings showed us some of the best Supertramp sound we have ever heard on any of their albums, which is saying a lot. Supertramp is one of the most well-recorded bands in the history of pop music. GEOFF EMERICK took over most of the recording duties after the band decided to work with a different engineer for this, their 1977 album.
