(Remember The Sound) was their slogan, well now you’ll be remembering the sound from a new address. Acoustic Sounds out of Salina, Kansas is owned and ran by Chad Kassem. He has just purchased Classic Records, best known for their high quality RCA Living Stereo re-issues. “This is a big acquisition for Acoustic Sounds which will enable us to further increase our presence and reputation in the audiophile vinyl market worldwide,” according to Kassem. Michael Hobson, who founded Classic Records in 1994, will continue in an advisory role to Acoustic Sounds to ensure a smooth transition. Congratulations to Acoustic Sounds for their purchase and one of the highest quality vinyl re-issue companies is now acquiring the other highest quality vinyl re-issue company. We wish you much success.
It’s a big happening thing now here in California. For quality vinyl pressing, people are going to a place in San Francisco called “Pirates Press” who are very willing to do business with anybody with a buck. What I’ve noticed is that they absolutely do the coolest pressings I’ve ever seen in my life (PicDiscs too). If an LP has a hot pink and bright sky blue cover, they press the vinyl to match the cover colors. Right now they are doing the self titled Blink 182 album using the colors of the LP cover (split pink & white). For the Cattle Decapitation LP, they did White Vinyl and put 1 inch round Black Spots to make it look like a cow pattern (Great Ideas). Maybe check them out on the web?
Sundazed Music never fails to impress:
