“…She’s enough of a talent to serve up nine of Dusty’s (plus one original) with reverence rather than mimicry, while avoiding the obvious songs. But the hook is the sound: it ranks with any ‘audiophile’ LP you can name.” Sound Quality: 90%, Hi-Fi News Album Choice – Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News, September 2012
“…I heard the music in an entirely new way … the recording is so good, and the Analogue Productions mastering brings such new life to this LP … Mastered by Doug Sax, this explodes off your turntable.” Recording = 10/10; Music = 9.5/10 – Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi +, Issue 89
Reissuing this masterpiece to Analogue Productions standards was an enormous – and expensive – undertaking. Keep in mind that almost without exception, for every pop record recorded after 1992, even if it’s recorded to analog tape like this one, the songs are stored individually. That means that there is never an actual complete album master compiled. So to cut an LP from tape, Analogue Productions had to have mastering engineer Doug Sax assemble an analog master in order so that he could then cut the record to LP, using his famed tube electronics. This involves a lot of extra cost and work. But, since this is such an incredible album, Analogue Productions went all the way! Also, the rumour is that Shelby Lynne herself is reportedly a big fan of vinyl!
“So this edition is mastered all analog by Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab and cut using his lathe driven by tube electronics and then plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings in Salina Kansas on 200g vinyl and all I can say is THIS IS INCREDIBLE!!!!!! The sonics are spectacular and the pressing quality is as good as has ever been pressed in my opinion. The backgrounds are dead, black, silent the way Japanese pressings used to come on JVC “Supervinyl” and believe me it doesn’t get any better than that, though this may even be richer, darker and blacker. Not only is the sound about as good as a recording can be, but it actually improves the performances, or at least the listener’s perception of the performances. A certain hesitancy or sense of less than full, straight ahead musical grooving that seemed to prevent the original from blooming and flowing is now gone. You can relax into this and hear Lynne’s performance with far greater clarity and rhythmic ease than before.” – Michael Fremer, www.musicangle.com, Music 9/10, Sound 11/10
