Amy Winehouse

Back to Black [Deluxe Half Speed Master]

£31.99

Deluxe audiophile pressing of Amy Winehouse's second and final studio album.

Half-Speed Mastering is an elaborate process whereby the source and the turntable on the disc cutting lathe are run at 16 2/3 R.P.M. The result is a record that is capable of extremely clean and un-forced high-frequency response as well as a detailed and solid stereo image.

+ Deluxe Double Vinyl with Half Speed Mastering.

These half-speed masters of three classic albums were all cut by Miles Showell, the Mastering Engineer at the world famous Abbey Road Studios. Each album is pressed onto 180 gram heavyweight vinyl and includes a download card. A Deluxe Edition 2CD of Back to Black was released in November 2007, containing a bonus disc of B-sides, rare, and live tracks including Valerie, Cupid and Monkey Man. This 2LP 10th anniversary vinyl set contains all the tracks from Deluxe Edition CD, the original album plus many of which appear on vinyl for the first time. The modern classic Back to Black album from 2006 showed Amy had grown and stretched her self, vocally she is in a new league breaking loose with Aretha-style vocal stylings on Just Friends or going gospel on the classic single Rehab. Love is a Losing Game is pure classic modern songwriting: brief, to the point and drenched in emotion. Other highlights include the Nas inspired Me and Mr Jones, the beautiful Wake up Alone and I'm no Good - the personal epiphany that you can behave just as badly as all those guys that have messed you around and stamped all over you.
