    Yeah I don't know if they prioritized the internationals this month but I got mine yesterday in Toronto which is by far the earliest I've ever had a shipment arrive.

    My copy sounds great. Anyone know who cut the record tho? A lot of other vmp classics will say when it's done by someone like Kevin gray but this one can't seem to find anything on.

    I asked Storf and I believe he said it was done by the label (Verve I think) in house so he wasn't even sure who did it. I don't think it was Gray though.

    Mine came to the Post yesterday, and I'm picking it up today. Might be the earliest ever for me too.

    Also, the Kero Kero Bonito "Bonito Generation" that I grabbed in store came yesterday via DHL. It didn't make it to my monthly box, but was estimated to ship mid-January according to my orders. It shipped from Kentucky on Jan. 9th, and arrived the next day at my door.....26 hours later. :)

    Any clues in the deadwax?

    KPG@CA would be your typically Kevin Gray deadwax sig.

    This was basically a cut from the masters they had on hand at Verve. Confirmed that, and forgot to come back here.

    Spin cleaned first but my first play had a lot of static. Played it again and oddly enough it sounded pretty quiet this time.

    Probably had dust in my ear. :confused: Going senile. But happy the record sounds great.

    It's also our winter, dry air in the house means super static'y records. Especially after a spin clean with all the towels rubbing the vinyl. May have dissipated after the first play through. In the summer my RCM totally removes all static after a clean, in the winter... not so much.

    Glad there’s an explanation that doesn’t involve me hearing things because I’m getting old. :)

    Yep, Canadian winter is brutal for static in the house. If your furnace has a adjustable humidifier you can set it higher to get rid of some of that.

    It's electric heating here, so definitely favorable for static in winter.

    Oh god that's it for sure. Well, it's either buy a humidifier or have static till April.

    Got mine yesterday and love the album but my side one sounds awful. Alot of static and noise, and pops at the end. Tried giving it a good cleaning and didn’t help at all. Time to write in for a replacement....

    Sounds perfect here....although despite what the label states, it does sound mono to me, which is a good thing and I wish more of these Classics would be released in the original mono.


    Can any others with discernible ears or better setups also tell that this is mono...or am I just hearing it wrong?
