What do ya’ get when you drag a diamond through a groove of plastic? Great sound !! I recently had the pleasure of remastering a classic rock record for a 180 gram vinyl only release on Rykodisc. Sugar’s “Copper Blue” was Bob Mould’s post Husker Du band in the early 90’s. With hits like “Changes”, “Helpless”, and “Hoover Dam”, this lp is a indie rock classic !
The test pressing sounded amazing !! Rainbo Sound cut the lacquer master and did a spectacular job.
Out of Denver comes, John Common and The Blinding Flashes of Light. A recent review of “Beautiful Empty” wrote that, “John’s lyrics are those of the poet–laureate, insightful, and glaringly crisp in their focus. The music is the equal to anything ever done by any great pop music arranger. Beautiful Empty is full of mystery, intrigue, loneliness, pain, and searching..” Couldn’t have said it any better. I find myself going back and listening to this one.
From the land of Sugarhill Records, I mastered the new Jim Lauderdale project, “Reason And Rhyme.” “With 11 fresh takes on the bluegrass sound that he’s loved since he was a teenager, this latest effort presents Lauderdale at his most relaxed and rooted—and with the help of one of American music’s greatest lyricists, Robert Hunter, it’s a set that offers not only deep musicality, but deep meaning and vision.”
So what’s coming up? Projects by, “The Grilled Lincolns”, “Yell County”, “Alice Peacock” and a cd release party on “The Electric Company”. See ya’ there !!
