Why buy a first or early pressing and not a re-issue or a ‘re-mastered’ vinyl album?

First pressings are made from first generation lacquers and stampers. They usually sound vastly superior to later issues and re-issues (which are often pressed from whatever tapes or digital sources are currently available).

Many recent vinyl pressings claim to be mastered from ‘original tapes’ and are pressed on expensive 180g vinyl. Sonically, they frequently sound disappointing when compared to a decent condition first pressing. All too often, they sound like a CD pressed onto vinyl.

If you want the best analogue reproduction possible from vinyl, it is always a better investment to seek out original pressings in clean playing condition. They nearly always have more immediacy, presence and dynamics. The sound staging is wider, and subtle nuances are better placed with more spacious textures. Balances are firmer in the bottom end with the bass far tighter. Upper-mids shine, and the overall depth is more immersive. Inner details are clearer, and the music tends to sound more ‘alive’.


MATRIX NUMBERS IN RUN-OFF GROOVES: SIDE A: YEX.605-1 / SIDE B: YEX.606-1.

MOTHER No. SIDE A: 3 / SIDE B: 2

STAMPER No. SIDE A: TH / SIDE B: HA

SLEEVE: VERY GOOD+, JUST LIGHT SHELF, CORNER, RING AND EDGE WEAR. SOME LAMINATE YELLOWING, BUT OVERALL ONE OF THE BEST CONDITION SLEEVES WE HAVE SEEN FOR SOME TIME. INNER SLEEVE IS VERY GOOD+.

DISC: EXCELLENT MINUS. NO SCRATCHES, MINOR SPINDLE WEAR, SOME LIGHT PLAY SCUFFS AND HAIRLINES. CLEAN LABELS. CONSIDERING THE AGE OF THE DISC THIS IS A SPLENDID PLAYING COPY WITH SUPERB AUDIO.
