Electric Warrior (Abbey Road Half Speed Master): Vinyl LP
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Release Date: 29th April
There are few British records with such a natural groove as this, an irresistible boogie with that glam stomp and honestly, Marc Bolan's vocal performances, just so shaggably charismatic. Anyway, that gloriously electric boogaloo is all the more glorious now it gets that Half Speed Master treatment.
T.Rex’s definitive Glam Rock album from 1971 was produced by Tony Visconti and has now been Half Speed Mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, London.
Contains the singles “Get It On” ( #1 in the UK in July 1971), “Jeepster” ( #2 in the UK in November ‘71).
Pressed on 180gram vinyl and housed in a sleeve with an Abbey Road Obi and Abbey Road Certificate.
About the Half Speed Mastering Process:
This record was cut using a specialist technique known as half-speed mastering. This is a process whereby the source for this record as well as the turntable on the disc cutting lathe are both run at half their normal operating speed, so that twice the time is spent cutting the intricate groove into the master disc.
This artisan approach results in cuts that have superior high frequency response (treble) and solid and stable stereo images.
In short, a very high quality master that helps to create a very high quality record.
