    The recent half-speed reissues of Brian Eno’s first four solo albums are excellent.

    Absolutely obsessed by Eno's work since 1973 but just couldn't justify the expense involved. Sad really, would have loved the first two albums.

    I picked up the Abbey Road half speed mastered John Martyn - Solid Air
    I have the original and it's literally stunning in comparison to the original.
    If you see them. pick them up. I think it was £25, which in comparison to other premium pressings (MFSL, Music Matters, Analogue Productions..all £50 +)
    is a no brainer. Even relatively poor new vinyl reissues are up at £15 to £20 these days, the majority of which IMHO are pretty bad.
    Amazing mastering work, produced with passion.

    Just bought supertramp crime of the century, my original is in bad shape from my late night drunken teen years. I'm hoping the half speed mastering will be even better. It's a Japanese pressing, I heard the roxy music albums were presses in Czech Republic and are rubbish, so best to look out for that. I always ask where they were pressed since hearing that.

    Hello,
    Yes my original Crime of the Century was bought `74 or`75 so has been played to death, I bought the speakers corner re-issue 10 years or so ago and it`s really great

    I found the Abbey Rd Solid air to sound compressed in A/B comparison with a NM 1st pressing.
