We've all heard it...if you want the best pressing of this or that, look for a UK/EURO/JAPAN pressing. Many times this is good advice as the differences are readily apparent, but I think for a good number of vinyl fans this has become an unjustified standard opinion. This is especially true today, but it is also applied to pressings of some decades ago, and this is where I disgree with some of the mainstream thinking.
Using only the example of WEA and two their sub-labels Reprise and Elektra, plus their own output on WEA, we have had the good fortune of some amazingly wonderful product, and IMO...product that stands up to everything else. Have a look and listen to your own collection of these labels and tell me otherwise.
Do I have have tin ears?
