80's synthpop > today's synthpop

Never apologize for something like this. Hell, I just bought an Erasure album on my last record store visit.

can you please clarify which CB album your referring to and which pressing? Thanks! (and by "startlingly different", I assume you mean it's an improvement).

I couldn't believe how 3D this album sounded when I played it last night. I think I had only played it once in the few years I've owned it. But wow. It'll be played a lot more now.

Hi ,

Try Ed Sheeran’s Multiply Album . It’s a double LP , 45RPM , 180 gram and mastered by Rick Rubin . Sounds good for a pop album. I told my audiophile friends about it and when they heard it in they’re mega buck system they were impressed.
Another one is the Al Di Meola’s LP , also a double 45 RPM LP 180 gram. The album title is All Your Life . Fantastic record , Al’s cover of Beatles songs.
Rickie Lee Jones LP , a double 45 RPM LP also 180gram. Great LP . My favourite cut is her version of Steely Dan’s Showbiz Kids . The album title is “It’s Like This “

Happy New Year in Advance Guys ,

The new pressing of Beck - Mutations sounds great. Also on the music on vinyl label Alice in Chains sounds spectacular, a must buy sound wise. That b52's album on the mofi label is a stunner sound wise.

I like we'll recorded alternative. Keep them coming.
