Lightnin Hopkins "Goin' Away" Analogue Productions, 2x 180gram vinyl, 45 rpm speed Mastered by Steve Hoffman, Kevin Grey from the original master tapes Limited edition number 185
Up for sale is Lightnin' Hopkins- Goin' Away, reissued by Analogue Productions on double 45 rpm. Mastered by Steve Hoffman who is known for his "breath of life" sound quality, the band sounds like they are playing in the room. 45 rpm for maximum fidelity to spread the music over 4 sides so there is no loss of fidelity towards the inner grooves. See the original mastering insert (photographed above) for details on the care went into this 45 rpm series.
In my opinion the magic of Steve Hoffman remastering is particularly on albums with vocals, especially these types of simple blues albums. Really sounds like live music in the living room.
Records are both in NM condition and have only been played once carefully listened to on Stax headphones. These are extremely revealing headphones, these Fantasy 45 rpm Analogue Productions reissues play really nice and quiet, there are maybe only 5 or 6 tics through out the entire album.
On the jacket there is some seam fraying along the top seam, photographed above
Includes the original insert which includes mastering details by Steve Hoffman, some photographs, etc (see photos above)
Includes the original outer sleeve which has the AcousTech sticker with Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman's signatures
