MOFI Yes "Fragile" UD1S (One-Step, Supervinyl)


I’ve had this now for awhile and have had a chance to listen to it several times through.

Another home run for Mobile Fidelity. Definitely in my top 5 of the UD1S releases, (which I have all of them).

"Roundabout" has always been one of my favorite songs, (top 10 for sure). Here, it is exquisite! Lush, open, dynamic and just hypnotic. Oh, and the rest of the album is just as good. Clean, QUIET surfaces with a wonderful black background!

Of course, excellent packaging and presentation like all of the UD1S reissues.

Highly recommended...expensive I know, but to me, well worth it.

So does it sound like a CD?  I'm not trying to be facetious, but if it sounds anything like the recent 45RPM issue of Dire Straits' 'Making Movies', then I'll most certainly pass, because that puppy is dead on arrival:  flat, congested, undynamic and devoid of musical life (but a very flat, quiet pressing).  

I'll stick with my original UK plum 'Fragile'.
