However, during the spectacular crescendo of "You'll never walk alone" the distortion is really obvious. I was going to send back the record, but for what it's worth I played a youtube video of the song and it had the distortion in the exact same way so I thought maybe that's just the way it is. Would love to hear what others have to say about this. I got a third copy of this record and the distortion is gone.
I'd still like to hear from somebody knowledgeable about what type of pressing defect causes this. It's the first time I've heard it. I've got the same problem and it sounded to me as if it's just cut very hot needing a k turntable for playback.
The top high frequencies are hitting the wall : harsh and sibiliant especially when Miss Simone sings the "s", the cymbals are lost too , I was in the mood to throw my turntable thru the window, fortunately I red the comments above.
Very disapointed about this record, I bought it in the 2x45' version, the sound is really not what I expected, and the mix with the voice only on the left channel is a bit odd. I think the mono version is the One, but not this one. So I put this album away until today when I decided to give it another go while evaluating an incredible world-class in my humble opinion phono stage I am trying out - and to my amazement - I discovered that what the problem is, is that this album was cut with inverse polarity!
Try inverting absolute polarity if you have a line stage that can do this. True story. Search form Search. Analog Corner. News News Analog Gear News. Album Reviews.
