  • New Clapton Album ?

    i have only heard a/b so far. I like the classic blues rock sound. Pressing is a bit noisy, sound quality is missing something in the treble and ambience areas. It's as if the laquers were cut from hi Rez dig.

    Haven't got my copy yet, Mikey gives it 11/11 for sound quality...maybe he was drinking again

      Maybe they dehorned the lacquers?

        So I'm starting over. It sounds better tonight ...8/10...maybe 9/10. Ears were not working as well last night. The pressing quality (quietness) the rolling record sound is not as quiet as you would expect with quality records pressings.

          That's something interesting I've experienced too with other recordings. First time you play the LP, the record doesn't sound very good. Next day, the album sounds much better or even totally different. Is it the ears or the simple act of playing that improves the sound? Or day to day variations in how the system sounds. Hmmm..... That's why never jump the gun.

            There is a more insidious and somewhat uncomfortable, albeit tongue-in-cheek explanation Myles. The first couple of times, your stylus is reaming out the groove to it's liking :-) .... then it gets nice and comfy! Might be the effect of chemical residue from manufacture?

            It certainly can be the mold release though know Christian meticulously cleans even new records before playing. It's kinda what you are inferring though. Most of the best pressing plants don't dehorn (polish) their silver father any more. Yes dehorning can make the LP quieter but it also removes the upper octaves. So sometime the act of playing a couple of time does what the dehorning does.

            See lacquer prep part.

          It reminds me of a garage band sound at times....it sounds more raw and less studio in flavor..

          ludwig mastered, Bernie the vinyl mastering. The best thing...a new release from one of the greats.

            Okay...for a blues album it's a ten musically and sonically. I stand corrected. Great bass extension in the mix.
