What Mobile Fidelity lp or cd is your fav ?


Looking for some new mo-fi ?

I really like Jethro Tull Aqualung for its sound and the demand it puts on my system. It is one of the best Mobile Fidelity releases but is somewhat spendy. Also Steely Dan Katy Lied is a really cool record. Both are vinyl releases from early days of MOFI.
Alan Parsons "I Robot" is awesome sounding. I also like John Klemmer "Touch". David Bowie "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars". Resphigi "Pines of Rome". To name just a few.
Crime of the Century.

MFSL got this one right.
Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon UHQR
Jethro Tull Aqualung
UHQR DSOTM
Rickie Lee Jones-Lp
Traffic, The low spark of high heeled boys-Lp
The first bunch, mastered by Stan Ricker, sound the best. Musically, I really like the Ellington and Armstrong two disc set, the Doors eponymous LP, Yes "Close To The Edge", and the Supertramp UHQR.
Dylans live 1966 RoyaL ALBERT HALL show

Ry Cooder JAZZ-LP

I do not like Crime Of The Century. It is veiled and cut very low. I can listen to it without my preamp direct in (still veiled). Glad to hear the vinyl is great.

imo

I second Crime of the Century (CD)

Disagree with Tom Petty Full Moon Fever (CD) - all they did was turn up the treble. The standard CD sounded better balanced, IMHO. Ditto for Tom Petty Damn The Torpedoes (CD) - the new remastered version available for download (or on Blu-ray) in 24bit/96Khz is far superior (for 2 channel sound).

I also liked Huey Lewis and the News "Sports" and the Queen MFSL and the U2 CD releases. These were an improvement over the original CD releases. U2 benefited most as they were often the most compressed, loudness wars casualties. The snare sound is way better.
Just playing 1-005 right now which is Crime of the Century. I don't have the UHQR but this version is well worth whatever price you pay.
Sgt. Peppers UHQR LP. Nothing out there can touch it. I feel sorry for fellow Beatle Freaks out there who have not been given the opportunity to hear this masterpiece on a high resolution system. I play it once a year, June 1st, the anniversary of it's release in 1967.
Moody Blues - Days Of Future Passed
Cat stevens - Tea for The Tillerman
Jim Croce - Don't Mess Around With Jim
The Beatles - Abbey Road
Neil Diamond - Hot August Night
All of the above on Half Master Vinyl lp
Pixies Doolittle. One of the finest pressings I have of any album ever. Surfer Rosa isn't far behind. 2 great albums with the pressings they deserved.
I started a similar thread a while back and at that time I praised David Bowie "Ziggy Stardust" (LP). I'm going to change that now and give 5***** to The Cowboy Junkies "Whites Off Earth Now" (LP). I have yet to hear a better sounding LP.
Led zepplin ll. Very well mastered and raw. Loud as well.
Muddy Waters 'Folk Singer'

Getz Gilberto

Pink Floyd DSOTM

Had time to think...U.h.q.r of Crime of the Century is great; the c.d. is crap. Aqua lung by j.t. great, sticky fingers by r.s good, on a limb here charley bird with Clark terry very well mastered at the village gate. Been collecting for 25+ years and love them.

Cars S/T or Supertramp "Crime of The Century".
Blood, Sweat and Tears (S/T) and Steely Dan Gaucho, on CD
Pixies Surfer Rosa is sublime, and even better sounding than Doolittle.
Elvis Costello Armed Forces is what I am spinning right now and it is also great.
My favorite Mobile Fidelity, actually the only one I really like from MFSL is Cat Stevens "Teaser And The Firecat. Most other MFSL re-issues sound bright and lack a deep bass like the original vinyl issues, and are just not musically involving. Teaser is a real teaser...highly recommended if you can find it.
lp=Alison Krauss Live
cd=Bob Marley Exodus
