Coming Soon: Sinatra at the Sands Mofi Vinyl, Elvis Costello -- Armed Forces Mofi Vinyl, Black Crowes -- Croweology 3LP Vinyl
Mobile Fidelity's latest from Frank Sinatra is his 1966 time capsule, Sinatra at The Sands. This two-record set, mastered by Rob Loverde, is more dynamic, carries a richer tonal palette, and removes a layer of grain from Sinatra's voice that can be heard on the first pressing original vinyl.
This is the best that this material has ever sounded. Click here for the full review.
Mofi's latest installment in their series of Elvis Costello's albums is his third release, Armed Forces. This vinyl mastering from engineer Shawn Britton carries a smooth, dynamic sound that brings forth the bass and lower frequencies as they haven't been heard before. Is it better than the original UK with all the goodies? Click here to read the full review.
In conjunction with their Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys 2010 tour, the Black Crowes have just released Croweology, a set of all acoustic versions of many of their most loved songs. Pricing the 2-cd release like a single disc, it has been dubbed a thank you to fans for 20 years of support, and has mostly received favorable reviews for content as well as sound. Will the specially-priced 3-LP set be worth picking up? Click here for the full review.
