Super Hot Stamper

James Taylor
Mud Slide Slim

  (Item #: taylomudsl_1802_1811) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • A wonderful copy of JT's classic followup to Sweet Baby James, boasting outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades for sound on both of its sides
  • This original WB Green Label pressing demonstrates the Tubey Magical Midrange that modern records cannot even BEGIN to reproduce - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Some of old JT's strongest material: You've Got a Friend; You Can Close Your Eyes; Hey Mister, That's Me up on the Jukebox and more
  • 4 stars on Allmusic - it destroys the recent reissue, which lacks the texture and warmth you get in abundance on these killer best originals

James Taylor - Mud Slide Slim

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: taylomudsl_2009) 



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

Side two here has STUNNING MASTER TAPE SOUND, and side one is not far behind. Side two is open and transparent with shocking clarity. All of the little details that are missing from the average copy really come through here -- the sound of the room around the guitars, the transients of the hand percussion, and the weight of the piano, to name a few. The acoustic guitar sound is Right On The Money and the vocals sound amazing. The bottom end on this copy just can’t be beat -- we’ve never heard another copy of Mud Slide Slim with such deep, note-like bass. The highs are silky sweet and there’s real three-dimensionality to the soundfield.

James Taylor - Mud Slide Slim

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: taylomudsl_depth) 



Presenting another entry in our extensive Listening in Depth series.

Mud Slide Slim has some of Taylor's strongest material: You've Got a Friend; You Can Close Your Eyes; Hey Mister, That's Me up on the Jukebox, and one of his best and most underrated, Love Has Brought Me Around. If you've got a top copy of the album, this song, the leadoff on side one, can really rock. It's yet another in the long list of recordings that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

James Taylor aka Mud Slide Slim

Is He in a Booth or Isn't He?

  (Item #: taylomudsl_listen) 



That depends.

Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises.

Midrange Presence is tough to come by on Mud Slide; most of the time JT’s voice is recessed, dark, veiled and has a slightly hollow quality. To find a copy where his vocals are front and center -- which of course is exactly where they should be -- but still rich, sweet and tonally correct is no mean feat. Only the best copies manage to pull it off. Out of the dozens of copies we played in our most recent shootout few had the midrange we were looking for and knew existed.
