Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
This is a dual speed, 12 inch at 150 gram, 33 1/3 RPM on the A side and 45 RPM on the B side. Released in the fall of 1957 as a 7'' single, backed with ''Treat Me Nice'' and was Number One on the U.S. Chart for seven weeks. This is the first time this is available on 12'' vinyl in this format. It's Elvis Presley sounding better than ever and is sure to generate great interest from collectors, as well as Elvis fans and music lovers. On Jailhouse Rock, ''taken from the original soundtrack of the movie, Elvis sings all five of the songs which were written especially for the film. There is the throbbing title song, Jailhouse Rock, which opens the album, followed by Young and Beautiful, I Want to Be Free, Don't Leave Me Now, and Baby I Don't Care... all in the inimitable style of this exceptional young singer and actor, Elvis Presley.''

I am a pro with a A/V system that totals around £10,000 with turntable, of £2,000, A/V receiver £2,000, 2 x power amps at £500 each for front and back audio and 9.1 speakers by B&W.
First I sat and listened the the A side at 33/3rpm. The sound quality was excelent as expected from 180g new vinyl and sounded much better the the same recordings I have on CD.
Then I turned it over to listen to the same tracks at 45rpm and WOW. The bass through the sub-woofer was making the furnature move and orniments fall off the mantle piece, the treble was so clear it could shatter glass and it proves to all those who say vinyl has had it's day to be b*****x, get them round and listen to this and if they say CD sounds better they need a hearing aid. I am a firm believer that the faster a vinyl record spins the better frequncies it could produce and this piece proves it. All I want to see now is 78 rpm vinyl, how amazing would that sound remastered. Fact is singles went down to 7" from 10" when the change came from shellec to vinyl in the 1950s so people of the day couldn't play vinyl with a shellec needle and destroy the record on first play so thumbs up to the record companies of the time. But, now that is no longer an issue lets see 78 rpm vinyl it will be FANTASTIC. This purchase is one you must make as if you don't believe me, see for yourself.
