Weezer - The Blue Album (Black 180gram #1620/3000)

Ive featured this before, but not this pressing. Mofi did an amazing job on this pressing. Mastering at half speed from original master tapes made this sound absolutely brilliant. this classic album has been in my rotation FOREVER. I can also remember as a kid our first Gateway computer came with the music video for “Buddy Holly..” No clue why, but I loved the song and considered myself a fan from then on. 

This album is only properly experienced through this pressing, I promise you its worth the high price tag!

Got my limited edition/numbered MFSL pressing of Weezer’s debut album. It sounds wonderful. The packaging is fantastic (though the 180g vinyl still managed to cause a small seam split in the heavy duty cardboard used on the jacket of my copy while in transit). 

This is the first MFSL album I’ve ever bought new. It was worth the $30. 

Pick up yer copy now before this shit gets hella expensive.

Who remembers Gold CDs? They were fairly popular many years ago among audiophiles. DCC made a lot of gold discs. MoFi made UDCDs. I had a bunch of these, and they are all out of print now. Sold off a lot of them because they were going for crazy money. I still have a few laying around. Audiophiles are nutty people. I’m not excluding myself either.

This brush cost me $20.  But it does amazing work.  One run through with this brush will make an impact on the quality of the record.  Visible dirt and dust are easily picked up.  I give my records a thorough brushing with this before I wash them–if I need to.

A note to people buying brand new stuff.  Records right out of the shrink need a good brushing as well.  There is lots of residue and dust left over from the pressing plant.
