The Analogue Productions reissue of Hugh Masekela's masterpiece Hope, now
available on 33 1/3 LP. Mastering from Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio; 200-gram
knock-your-socks-off silent heavyweight vinyl plated and pressed by Quality
Record Pressings. The ultimate.
A longtime audiophile demonstration disc, Hope will show off your system's
dynamic range as well as any record ever released. Hugh Masekela, the
outstanding South African trumpeter, assembled a seven-piece group and recorded
this great set live at Washington, D.C.'s Blues Alley. The songs stretch over a
period of nearly five decades and serve as an informal guided tour of Masekela's
life. The songs are honest and bare, and as for the sound — WOW!
Unlike a prior 45rpm version that included seven songs, this 33 1/3 reissue
contains the full program as originally recorded with all 12 tracks included!
Plus, as an added bonus, we've included a special insert — featuring an
exclusive interview with Grammy/Emmy Award-winning engineer David Hewitt, who
recorded Hope originally.
"...Hope is one of those intensely visceral, large as life, and immediately
present recordings that will make pretty much any system sound at least very
good, and will cause better ones to raise goose bumps." - Wayne Garcia, The
Absolute Sound, August 2008
"...The high quality original mix plus Analogue Productions' superb mastering
has resulted in a terrific, very transparent sonic with great impact." -
