Deep Purple - Machine Head
Rhino 180g LP (US 2008) / R1 75622
Mastered by Kevin Gray @ AcousTech, Camarillo

Vinyl rip in 24-bit/96kHz & 16-bit/44.1kHz | FLAC | cue, m3u & Log

Allmusic.com rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Led Zeppelin's fourth album, Black Sabbath's Paranoid, and Deep Purple's Machine Head have stood the test of time as the Holy Trinity of English hard rock and heavy metal, serving as the fundamental blueprints followed by virtually every heavy rock & roll band since the early '70s.
- Eduardo Rivadavia/AMG

Great sounding reissue. A perfect replacement for my broken original....

Motörhead - 1916
Pure Pleasure Records 180g / PPAN 467481
Mastered by Ray [email protected] AIR-Studios, London

Vinyl rip in 24-bit/96kHz | FLAC (cue, m3u, Log) | Artwork
~865 mb incl. recovery | RS & FF | Hard-Rock | 1991

As sobering as his reflections on the horrors of World War I are on the title song, he's unapologetically amusing on "Going to Brazil," "Angel City" (an ode to the "beautiful" party people of L.A.), and "Ramones" (which salutes the New York punk band). Whether the subject matter is humorously fun or more serious, Motörhead is as inspired as ever on 1916. - Alex Henderson/AMG

Motörhead as an Audiophile LP, does that work? Yes, this great album sound better than ever. Big thx to PurePleasure for the courage to release an audiophile Hard-Rock record and to Ray Staff for his excellent work.

Phantom Limb - Phantom Limb [Naim LP122 180g]
Mastered by Steve Rooke @ Abbey Road Studio, London
Viny rip 24-bit/96kHz & 16-bit/44.1kHz | FLAC | cue, m3u & Log | Artwork
~1.05gb/300 mb incl. recovery | RS & FF | Soul, Blues, Country | 2008

What a debut!!! Simply, wonderful music!

The Phantom Limb sound is an indefinable blend of classic southern soul and country blues. They blend modern songwriting and rich acoustic music with powerful gospel-inflected vocals. Already comparisons are being made to Mavis Staples, Aretha Franklin and The Band. Their honest, melancholic, Bristolian edge creates one of the most original and compelling new propositions of recent years. The self-titled debut album was the brainchild of Robot Club production team, whose recent writing/production credits also include Will Young, Skin (Skunk Anansie) and Fortune Drive. The album was recorded at their very own Robot Club Studios (Bristol) as well as Rockfields Studio (Monmouth) and Caveman Studios (Bristol).

It is almost impossible to imagine a world without A Love Supreme having been made, and it is equally impossible to imagine any jazz collection without it.

EAC rip with CUE + Log | FLAC (single file) | full 300 dpi Scans

Allmusic.com rating 4.5 out of 5 Stars

Get ready for the ride of your life through Irish folk-rock styles. The opening track of the group's debut album, with its pipes, button accordion, and percussion, could pass for any Chieftains record, but then the electricity kicks in on "Hall of Mirrors," and the rest is melodic rock, not so much folk-rock as folkish rock, recalling early Genesis.

A great album with also great sonics. If you have only small interests in irish folk and celtic rock this, besides "The Book Of Invasions" and "The Tain", shouldn't be missed! IMO all masterpieces of this genre.

Joni Mitchell - Court and Spark
Rhino 180g LP / R1 1001

Vinyl rip in 24-bit/96kHz and 16-bit/44.1kHz | FLAC | m3u, cue & Log
Artwork | 778/223 mb incl. recovery | RS & FF | Folk-Pop; Folk-Jazz | 1974

Allmusic.com rating: 5 out ot Stars

A very accessible and commercially-appealing album, Court and Spark was Mitchell's commercial and popular triumph — it wasn't only praised by critics (as were all of her albums of the 1970s) but was also received very warmly by the public, becoming her most successful album.

A great sounding re-issue. IMO even better as the original US pressing and the Nautilus record....

Much better as it's reputation. "Who Do We Think..." is a good Hard-Rock album with great sonics. This re-issue by Friday Music can easily compare with Audio Fidelity Gold-CD. mastered by Steve Hoffman.

A heady mix to say the least! It's a varied album, daring in its choices and remember - most are original songs by Topham. "Ascension Heights" is a grower that bears repeated listening.

Great sounding re-issue.... An original is nearly impossible to find. Wonderful release by Pure Pleasure Records!

Allmusic.com rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars

Dirt is Alice in Chains' major artistic statement and the closest they ever came to recording a flat-out masterpiece. It's a primal, sickening howl from the depths of Layne Staley's heroin addiction, and one of the most harrowing concept albums ever recorded
- Steve Huey/AMG

Awesome sounding reissue of this 90's rock masterpiece...

Of Muddy Waters' later recordings, it certainly got no better than the summit meeting heard on Fathers and Sons. Fans of Waters' true and natural showmanship, as well as enthusiasts of blues-based rock & roll will find plenty to revisit.
- Lindsay Planer/AMG

Great sound and great performances... Highly recommended for any Blues lover!

With some of his clearest, strongest singing in years and a collection of terse, honest originals, as well as a cover of the Slickers' reggae classic "Johnny Too Bad," Grace & Danger shows John Martyn at the top of his game.

Superb sounding, very personal album by John Martyn, who sadly passed away last year.

Allmusic.com rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars

The resulting freakout became the first half of the stellar Cloud Nine, an album that would become one of the defining early funk sets, with songs that not only took Motown in a new direction, but helped to shape a genre as well. On one side and across three jams, Whitfield and the Temptations would give '70s-era funk musicians a broad palette from which to draw inspiration.
- Amy Hanson/AMG

Not a sonical masterpiece but IMO the best way to enjoy this great soul album.

More pop-oriented than any of their previous work, the sound of The Man-Machine -- in particular among Kraftwerk's oeuvre -- had a tremendous impact on the cold, robotic synth pop of artists like Gary Numan, as well as Britain's later new romantic movement.
- Steve Huey/AMG

Great sounding re-issue of Kraftwerk's most popular record... Stunning dynamics!

Yes, some of this could be labeled as filler, but like any great double album, its appeal lies in its great sprawl, since it captures elements of the band's personality rarely showcased elsewhere — and even at its worst, Physical Graffiti towers above its hard rock peers of the mid-'70s.
- Stephen Thomas Erlewine/AMG

IMO the best version you can get... The sound is more on the bright side but it offers much more details than other versions. Checkout also the comments on my previous post of this record.
