Judas Priest :: Hell Bent For Leather

Date Posted: 
February 17, 2010

It’s about time we got something remastered that really kicks ass.

I love 60’s and early 70’s rock classics as much as anyone, and yes I’ve got six different pressings of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon but I think we need a wider range of great rock records with sound quality to match. Kudos to Audio Fidelity and Steve Hoffman for doing a bone crushing job on this Judas Priest classic.

Alice Cooper :: Killer

This 24kt gold CD is a must-own for any Cooper collector or fan, or one who's keen to hear the best fidelity of a killer '70s rock 'n' roll record. It's incredibly well-manufactured, minus all the dynamic-killing compression common to new remasters of albums. The mastering engineer here is Steve Hoffman, whose own very large cult following regularly fellates his work on albums.

Audio Fidelity uses Steve Hoffman to bring out the inherent qualities of the debut classic from The Band on this remastered AF Gold Disc series CD.  And as his skills always produces a sterling edition of a classic, so it enhances the quality of this S/T album by The Band that gave us "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" as well as "Up On Cripple Creek."

Blues Breakers :: John Mayall w. Eric Clapton & Rod Stewart :: Never A Dull Moment

England gave rock music some legendary performers and many are household names such as Eric Clapton and Rod Stewart.

Marshall Blonstein and Audio Fidelity have been unrelenting this year as the 24 karat gold releases keep coming from their vaults. Two more classics have just been released and they will surely sell out quickly because of their timeless popularity.

Blues and rock enthusiasts can now enjoy John Mayall with Eric Clapton Blues Breakers and Rod Stewart’s Never A Dull Moment in Audio Fidelity 24 karat gold CDs.

Herbie Mann :: at the Village Gate

You could accuse Herbie Mann (Herbert James Solomon) of “selling out” his serious jazz career for pop music stardom but that wouldn’t be fair.

The late Brooklyn born flautist managed to maintain credibility and respect on both sides of his long musical career, though the hit album Push Push’s naked upper torso cover was clearly a “jump the shark” moment.

We’ve gone back and found a mastering glitch and we are fixing it ASAP.  We hope to have the new re-pressed disc out to you as soon as possible.

Audio Fidelity Releases Two Classic Doors Albums On Remastered 24 Karat Gold CDs

 Culver City, CA, August 18, 2009 -- Marshall Blonstein’s Audio Fidelity continues its constant stream of classic releases this year with two groundbreaking Doors albums. The Soft Parade and Morrison Hotel are further proof of the Doors’ place in music history.

Linda Ronstadt::Heart Like A Wheel

On the face of it, the album was no great shakes. Packed full of old songs and contemporary hits. However, ‘Heart Like a Wheel’ was much more than that, and in fact was much more than Ronstadt... 

Pretenders :: Pretenders

The Pretenders recorded output in the studio is not extensive considering their self titled debut was released in 1980.  One thing they did do when they released an album was to make sure it counted.  And did that ever apply on their debut, which is considered by many, including this fan, to be their very best.

The Doors :: The Soft Parade

The warm, crisp, clear sound of the Audio Fidelity 24 karat gold CDs make your ears happy. The Doors are now part of their catalog of offerings.

The classic The Soft Parade broke new ground for The Doors and rock music as a whole by orchestrating some of their songs. “Touch Me” was a perfect example of that cross pollination of genres and the results were tremendous. Again Audio Fidelity takes one great album and makes it better with their process.
