Bob Marley And The Wailers - Babylon By Bus: Half Speed Master Vinyl 2LP
Bob Marley And The Wailers Babylon By Bus: Half Speed Master Vinyl 2LP
Mastered at Half-Speed by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios in London
In November 2020, twelve Bob Marley albums will be available on premium half-speed mastered vinyl. This specialist artisan process results in a more detailed representation of the original sound source cuts, with a far superior high-frequency (treble) response, and richer and fuller low to middle frequencies. All tracks were mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios in London.
Abbey Road's world-renowned engineers have been cutting grooves into discs since the studios first opened their doors in 1931. This record was pressed from a master cut using a precision technique known as half-speed mastering. The procedure requires the source master and the cutting lathe to run at half speed on a specially adapted Neumann VMS-80 lathe.
This rare and specialized technique transforms difficult to cut highend frequencies into relatively easy to cut mid-range frequencies. The result is a cut with excellent high frequency response and very solid and stable stereo images. In short, half-speed mastering produces a master of the highest quality that enables the pressing plant to produce a superlative record.
Captured in the midst of their Kaya tour in the spring of 1978, Bob Marley And The Wailers' second live recording, Babylon By Bus, is considered one of reggae’s most powerful and influential concert albums. No performer connected to and/or inspired his audience quite like Bob Marley captured to full effect here in definitive live versions of "Exodus," "Stir It Up," "Kinky Reggae" "Lively Up Yourself," and "Is This Love" among many others.
