Bob Marley And The Wailers Natty Dread: Half Speed Master Vinyl LP
Vinyl LP Half-Speed Mastered at Abbey Road Studios!
Natty Dread (1974) is considered Bob Marley's finest album, the ultimate reggae recording of all time. This was Marley's first album without former bandmates Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston, and the first released as Bob Marley & The Wailers. The material presented here defines what reggae was originally all about, with political and social commentary mixed with religious paeans to Jah.
Abbey Road's world-renowned engineers have been cutting grooves into discs since the studios first opened their doors in 1931. These records were pressed from master cuts 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 specialised 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. - Miles Showell, Mastering Engineer, Abbey Road Studios
