What brand of vinyl sounds best for Bob Marley?


What is the best sounding vinyl for Bob Marley? I see that Universal has 180 gram pressings and a company named Simply Vinyl out of Britain also has some 180 gram pressings. Which ones sound better?

thanks,

I've seen this topic before on Audioasylum - lots of people gave their inputs but a few of us were in agreement. I'll see if I can dig up that thread on Audioasylum for you.

meanwhile, it is my opinion that the best sounding Bob Marley LPs are the ORIGINALS i.e. non re-issued versions. I have 3 originals & 1 re-issue (Burnin'). I forget which label the re-issue is on. The originals are on Island records & they are recorded in Jamaica. The sonics are really, really nice on these originals. Unfortunately, they are very hard to get too!! FWIW, YMMV.

FWIW. IMHO. YMMV.
Look for the Hemp, Ganja, or Cannabis label!
