*SD-7208-45 STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN 12” Single
Each title is packaged in a sealed white box with a silver
limited edition sticker on the back and is spread out over either four or eight
sides depending on whether the original LP was a single or double. These 45 rpm sides were cut at the same
time as the 33 rpm discs and as such DO NOT represent a remastering that is
different from the 33 rpm LP's approved by the Band. Further, there is no additional artwork or extra-recorded
material of any kind. Each 45 disc
is packaged in a white jacket.
All records have test pressing labels and are pressed on Classic's
proprietary 200g Super Vinyl Profile for maximum playback fidelity.
Since the mastering is exactly the same as the 33 rpms, why
would anyone need the same material on 45rpm discs? The answer is simple - you should be more kind to your
cartridge by letting it play 45 rpm discs and reveal all the nuances that are
nearly impossible to retrieve from a 33rpm disc. The information in the grooves of these 45 rpms is EXACTLY
the same as in their 33rpm counterparts.
To prove it is very easy - think of the lathe as it is cutting a
lacquer, the cutter head doesn't know what speed the platter is spinning as the
cutter blindly moves up and down back and forth carving the grooves.
The difference is that at 45 rpm the same signal is
imprinted over a longer distance and hence the "stretched" out groove
is easier for a cartridge to traverse which allows the cartridge to give a
better read on what is carved. The
sonic difference can be quite remarkable, especially if the music is complex as
with Classical music or dense as is often the case with Rock. Rest assured that you have never heard
Stairway to Heaven until you've heard it at 45 rpm! This is as close to the master tape as we are able to get
with an LP and as such is extremely special although requires you to change
sides more often than with a 33 rpm disc.
This set represents the ultimate in collectibles given that only five
NUMBERED sets were produced assuring that it will likely skyrocket in price
over the years to come!!! If you are a Led Zeppelin nut (you know who you are)
then this set is essential - if not then go listen to some Barry Manilow!
