There are certain record labels that instantly bring a glint to the eye of the discerning audiophile. Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MoFi to its friends), Speaker’s Corner, the Blue Note Tone Poet Audiophile series…
Then there are the labels that do a consistently fine job with their re-issues and are highly respected by those valuing excellence in sound. Analogue Productions is one of these, though there are also historic contenders; many love the sound of MPS records form the ‘first age’ of vinyl.
Drilling down further, there are individual recordings that simply sound great; always have and—assuming quality control is maintained—always will. Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon is an icon in this regard, but there are others. Abbey Road was the first Beatles album recorded on eight-track equipment; Steely Dan’s Aja is a benchmark. More recently, the augmented 2017 re-issue of Radiohead’s masterwork (OK Computer OKNOTOK) has been widely lauded for its brilliant sound.
Navigating all the variables of audiophile records is quite a task. Which is why it is helpful to have a supplier who is across the sometimes bewildering array of versions of certain albums, and who can advise and inform. Discrepancy Records takes pride in its knowledge of this specialist area.
