Kevin Gray, owner of Cohearent Audio, re-masters the 1963 Beach Boys Album “Surfer Girl”. Using the original mono master tape from the vaults at Capitol Records, Kevin explains how he cuts a new mono lacquer that will be plated by Quality Record Pressings and used to press brand new vinyl records. Analogue Productions of Salina, Kansas is releasing fourteen of the best-sounding and best-looking versions of the early Beach Boys records that have ever been produced. Titles are being released in both original mono and stereo mixes on high quality 200-gram vinyl and SACD formats. The original mono mixes are where Brian Wilson paid all of his legendary attention to detail and creativity. Enjoy this look at preserving the iconic sound of the legendary Beach Boys sound in full spectrum high fidelity audio that only vinyl seems to capture and deliver on. Thank you Kevin!
Album jackets are being produced by Stoughton Printing using their “Tip-On Old Style Jackets ™” process. This process is featured in my related video, “Beach Boys Record Jackets”.
