Bob Marley And The Wailers - Live!: Half Speed Master Vinyl LP
Bob Marley And The Wailers Live!: Half Speed Master Vinyl LP
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.
With his new backing band in tow and his popularity spiking around the world, Marley and the Wailers recorded their first live album at The Lyceum Ballroom in London in 1975 during the Natty Dread tour. Vastly underrated as far as live concert recordings go, nobody quite connects with his audience like Bob Marley did, and extremely moving versions here of "I Shot the Sheriff," "No Woman No Cry," "Trenchtown Rock," and "Get Up, Stand Up" are true testaments to that.
