I rate the music here on RP based on the artistic, spiritual, social and commercial impact of the song...if any and all apply. I tend to rate music higher than the average. I'm an avid music lover!

It's been a busy week, I got a turntable and the vinyl LP's I ordered have been trickling in, here's what I got (Christmas in June)

The Beatles In Mono, box set
Sgt Pepper 50th Ann, box set
Sgt Pepper, stereo
Revolver, stereo
Rubber Soul, stereo
 
David Bowie;
  Low
  Heroes
  Lodger

Kind Of Blue, Miles Davis

The Allman Brothers Band Live At The Fillmore

Jet Plane And Oxbow, Shearwater

on order but not yet released;
OK Computer 20th Ann, Radiohead
Dire Straits debut album on 45rpm

All are the latest editions @ at least 180 gram vinyl except the three Bowie's, they are the colorized discs released in the late '70's and/or early '80's. New not used.
I learned a lesson the hard way, not all vinyl are created equally. Lodger is the best of three and if the other 2 was as good as this it wouldn't be so hard to take.
The first two cuts on each side of Low are trash. From what I hear they may put out a Berlin Triogy box set next year, if they included Stage it would be a nice set.

on the 50th Pepper LP I think that Giles put the Abbey Road touch on it, it is shiney and sparkly,
it may become a favorite among a lot of people, I did like the way they brought the vocals right up front but a lot of people don't like it
I have never heard Pepper in mono but after hearing Please Please Me in mono I got to get it now

So I compared the two Sgt Peppers.  The best I can say is that they are different.  The new release is much more polished, less hiss and sibilance for example, but also less dynamic range.  That is very visible looking at the two different wav files side by side.  Side 1 can be a tossup but for side 2, I'll take the 1976 GB pressing.  Within You Without You is way better on the earlier pressing and a little detail like the alarm clock in A Day In The Life is more present in the earlier release.  The 1976 release is both brighter and bigger in the overall soundstage.

Overall, the 50th is really nice, not disappointed, but not a must have just for the sound given the earlier release, which was a serious effort to reissue it using the best there was in the prime time of vinyl without the bs that comes with trying to keep up with demand when it first came out.  Now the master tapes are 40 years older and it may show more than we would want to admit.  

All that said, if you don't have a quality earlier release, buy this, its worth it.

I have the White Album from the same GB series and don't think I'll get the new one, given what it will probably cost and hearing the difference with Sgt Pepper.  Magical Mystery Tour I might get because it would be a 100 % true stereo release.  There never was one issued before in the US, including the 1981 MFSL pressing.

{#Cheers}

Fun fact, that is Cleveland radio station WHK's Rolling Stone shirt on the Shirley Temple doll on the cover.  Mick brought it over for the cover shoot.

Only because we're on the subject of old pressings versus the current series of reissues of old stuff ...

I've got two copies of Sgt Pepper's 50th coming and I can't wait to compare it with my 1976 GB reissue.  It was the best effort at the time for a whole series of Beatles reissues back then.  I'm not saying in all cases the new reissues aren't better, they're different in a lot of ways. You've got different people doing the final mastering for the release and they're aren't very many of the guys who did vinyl back in the beginning left that are still doing it.  But the old stuff was mastered for vinyl first and foremost.  And one title like Rumours for example, the first release was done in probably 5 different pressing locations with different people doing the mastering for the same album.  So even a first press, they're not all equal.  But the most important point is that its not the medium, CD or Vinyl, its what the master was made for and who made it.

Anyway, I added the raw rip of the 76 Great Britain pressing of SP to the folder for dl and critical listening.  Something to compare the new reissue to.  Most curious for feedback.  Lot's of dl's so far I see.  I'll leave it up through the weekend.

clicky

 
I'll grab that later. {#Cheers}

And hang in there.  {#Meditate}
