One of his best.......(a vinyl review),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Electric [VINYL] (Vinyl)
I am totally biased, I think RT is one of the best guitarists in the world and in Britain we turned our backs on him and quite rightly he found a more appreciative audience in the states.
Back to the album, it is typical RT, light and shade but this time with a slightly heavier guitar edge. The songs are as strong as ever and probably as good as Sweet Warrior which I really enjoyed.
I bought this on vinyl and got it for an amazingly good pre-order price thanks to Amazon(cheaper than the deluxe CD). Unfortunately the pressing is not brilliant, in fact I don't think I have seen a new pressing with so many hairline scratches before, most are not heard but in quieter sections you are aware of the light clicks regularly.
It seems that RT has moved label and instead of being on Diverse Records(Front Palour Ballads, Sweet warrior, Old Kit Bag) who made great vinyl pressings(probably done in Germany by Pallas) he is now with Proper Records in the EU, or New West Records in the states. New West did the Live in Austin Texas vinyl and that too had faults, I can't be sure where this was pressed but in my opinion it could have been done better.
If you do decide to buy the vinyl you will be pleased to know that a free mp3 download comes with it, Amazon fail to mention this in the description.
